Review: Running cool and armed with 3GB


Gainward recently started its Phantom series, for users who crave reliable and quiet cooling to go with good performance. The Phantom series currently features GTX 580, GTX 570 and GTX 560Ti. Our guest today is GTX 580 3GB Phantom, a custom version that as the name suggests comes with Phantom cooling and 3GB of GDDR5 memory. We hope that the strongest Phantom of them all will leave good impression like the GTX 560 Ti Phantom, which we tested here.

We expected to see a higher overclock on GTX 580 3GB Phantom, but it appears like Gainward did not want to step on GTX 580 Golden Sample’s toes. In comparison, Gainward’s GTX 580 Golden Sample runs at 805MHz for the GPU whereas GTX 580 Phantom’s GPU is at 783MHz.

Before we move on to the Phantom card’s description, we’ll showcase Gainward’s current offer based around the currently fastest graphics chip – GF110.
