NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 Specifications Leaked by VR-Zone.com

I'd be interested in one of these for the simple reason that it might mean I could run my rad fans slower. :)

I couldn't really give a crap how they compete against the 6000 series - I have a feeling AMD will take this one - but it's going to be interesting to see how much of a jump over a 480 it'd be, and if there's still as much headroom as with the 400 series.

I read somewhere that it would be around 40 percent faster

20% faster in actual gaming doesn't sound that impressive really, you could just OC a 480 and easily get that. I think the biggest thing for the 580 and 570 is that they won't be as hot as the surface of the sun.

At the clock speeds i have my 470 at its getting the same framerates as stock 480s so i'm really not that interested in these or the 6000 series.

Doesn't look to be that great at games. For vantage though, should be a beast.

So...basically this is what the 480 should have been? 512 cores at 700-800MHz clock? Not that impressive, really. It's more of a GTX485 rather than a 580.

Yeah I'm not sure what NVIDIA are playing at with the naming scheme. 485/580, whatever, if I can sell off my 480 and get this for €20 or something, then I might.

I bought the 4meg ATI ISA $287. way back when (still works) the first direct X cards.

Now i say, if you spend more than $150 for any vid card (unless needed) is a waste and foolish loss of cash from your pocket.

Same for monitors, just wait a few months.

Pretty much. GTX 485 or GTX 490 would have been a much more suitable name IMO.

I can understand some thinking $600 or even $500 to be frivolous, but $150 doesn't really buy you much of a GPU or monitor. The way I see it what's foolish is being an avid gamer and investing $1000 or more in a system only to cripple it with a mediocre graphics card and display.

Two thoughts:

If it renders via tessellation, the 580 is stunningly beautiful. Promise. And CoD: Black Ops looks wicked when played on it. I wonder why...

Depending on the title, nVIDIA will probably have a pretty good time of this round. They've put a lot of faith into tessellation and, frankly, I hope it catches on...
