barely faster than my "crippled" GTX480. I think I can survive skipping this one.

It's a 20% performance boost while using less power than the GTX 480. What's not to like? :D

I think it's great! However it should be called the 485...580 is more marketing than anything else. Overall it looks to be a pretty good step forward for team Green. I am gonna wait and see what team red has to offer, but I'm buying before xmas for sure.

That's a negative. Your current Corsair unit should be enough.

Even if I take the power limiter off, I might want to overclock a little...

Hahah, looks like someone pulled the site...woopsy on their part, lots of fun for us measly regular folk! Pretty awesome the stats, pretty decent upgrade from the 480. Now I have to try and wait until 6900's are out...if I can hold my peace till then, gonna be hard!

Not really on either front. If you put on the BS detection glasses, seems more around 14% and uses more power and just has a downclocking power management to make it seem like less. Still its not bad though, $500 seems too much though when you can get a faster 5970 for that.

So, they called this 512 core fermi a 5xx series GPU, what will they call Kepler in 2011?
I guess this is prety much the same as G80 - G90 and soon we get GT200, which is the 'proper' upgrade.

It would be more impressive if it didn't cost more than GTX480. Seems like you're paying 15-25% more for exactly that much more performance... I'm sure it will go down soon when competition arrives, I'm still a bit disappointed in the price though.

Actually 580 is faster from 0.8 to 28.7% ;)

Those aren't test results, they're the posters 'calculations'.

I'd take those with a huge grain of salt.

TBH, the 580 isn't particularly impressive given the price.

+1. Water cooled and over clocked to 875 already... I don't need a 580. Meh.

No, they don't.

These cards are pretty good (price is a little silly).

I'd still wager that the 580 will hold the single GPU crown (over the 6970) as the 480 did before it. No 'fail' there at all :rolleyes:

Looks pretty good to me but I sympathise with anyone who bought a 480 in the past couple of weeks. I very nearly did.... phew.

Welp, if I can find a buyer for my 480s on craiglist, I'm definitely upgrading to these. I want to squeeze every last ounce of performance I can for 3D Vision Surround.

Just ordered 2 EVGA SC'd :)

Hopefully they'll turn up tomorrow!
