Latest version of the Nvidia GPU, GF110, is essentially a revised version of the original Fermi chips, with the addition of a few tweaks. Return to the original touch, the Fermi potential is realized with 512 computing cores active. (The original GeForce GTX 480 to appreciate with the same number of cores, but 32 of them were disabled.) Furthermore, raising the GF110 with other improvements such as better performance FP16 texture, the pace scenes High-Range (HDR) rendering dynamic. The new chip also shows reference maps of high operating costs at 772MHz core and 1000MHz memory.
EVGA GTX 580 offers a slightly reworked, so the faster one. Slightly faster GPU, but at a high price
EVGA GeForce GTX 580 SC version of the card clock speeds a little juice to the core runs at 797MHz and 1012 MHz memory clocks are not free, however. Consumption of EVGA card was a bit more on the reference cards at full speed in our tests was the load power supply 395W, 385W, compared to the reference GTX 580 It is also higher than the energy of the original GTX 480, Nvidia, but he likes to point out that “performance per watt” is better.
Despite its incompleteness, the GTX 480 the fastest single-GPU card available, the additional cores, as well as higher clocks were allowed, the GTX 580 for a performance increase dramatically.
We were in our new junior EVGA reference test system and it took a ride. The result was a tabula rasa in all areas of reference, since the GTX 580 easily fake the performance of its predecessor, and the two single-GPU AMD products. In fact, when we left in a dual-GPU Radeon HD 5970, the GTX 580 was not won in most of the evidence and the marginal difference to win the reference HD 5970th Therefore, not only the faster GTX 580 GPU single card can be found on the card is the fastest, period.
As with other cards based on NVIDIA, you also get Nvidia PhysX in games of physical function that support it. And if you are willing to dip into your pocket, you can choose a kit 3DVision Thurs stereoscopic 3D films, if you have the required 3D display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Unlike AMD, however, need a second card if you want to drive more than two screens.
The GTX 580 will cost a pretty penny: The lowest price we’ve seen is about $ 540. So if you burn the fastest graphics card, you and the power to deal with it, you’ll pay for the privilege. AMD fans can play this card, the efficiency, but sometimes we want pure speed.
