GeForce GTX 580 Released And Benchmarked

True to our earlier reports, Nvidia has released its latest Fermi-based GPU, the GeForce GTX 580, which - the company touts - "has been reengineered from the transistor-level up to deliver increased power efficiency and performance over previous generation products."

Hardware reviews have shown than the new GTX 580 consistently outperforms its predecessor, the GTX 480, and its closest rival, AMD's Radeon HD 6870, by at least 20%.

The GeForce GTX 580 also utilizes a new "vapor chamber thermal solution" which allows it to be much cooler and quitter than the GeForce GTX 480.

The GeForce GTX 580 is available today for a recommended retail price of $500 from the world's leading add-in card partners, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.
