Asus GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB GDDR5 PCIe
Performance is fantastic.
Especially when the card is overclocked.
Quiet operation while maintaining reasonable temperatures during load.
Fastest Single GPU card on the market.
3 Year Warranty.
Fastest single unit DX11 graphics accelerator available.
Matches performance with dual GPU Radeon HD 5970.
Outstanding performance for ultra highend games.
Much lower power consumption vs GTX 480.
Reduced heat output and cooling fan noise.
Umption still are a bit on the high side.
Very expensive premium level product.
Outperformed by overclocked GTX 460's in SLI.
Outperformed by CrossFire Radeon HD 6870's.
Still not as power efficient as AMD's designs.
Power draw limiter could complicate advanced overclocking.
Still limited to two active display outputs per card.
Overclock out of the box too small to make any difference.

The GeForce GTX 580 was an unorganized launch from our perspective. Nvidia was unable to help with samples and the board partners we spoke to were foggy on the launch day details. In short, it was a bit of a mess and we were a little late with our...-

The ASUS GTX 580, just like any other GTX 580, is a magnificent card. It will chew up everything you throw at it even at stock and overclocking it just leads to more destruction. However, the factory overclock does next to nothing, which is a shame at...90

The ASUS ENGTX580 is a great video card, but its value is somewhat undermined by multi-GPU competition from AMD. It is definitely a premium implementation of the GeForce GTX 580. Everything about it oozes quality, from the packaging to the video card...-

NVIDIA delivered on their promise to improve the performance, temperatures and power consumption with the GTX 580. Although they were not major improvements in the latter two areas, they were improvements none-the-less. The game performance was truly...-

While we could go into much detail about the newly improved GF110 chip that the GTX 580 uses, we feel it is more important to highlight the actual features that we liked about this card. Of course it is a nice improvement to have 512 CUDA cores, 1...98

When you look at the performance delivered by the ASUS GTX 580 when run in its stock configuration, the numbers compare with the those of the reference GTX 580 with some increases here and there across the testing suite. The 10MHz improvement in base...-

The simple fact right up front here is that the GeForce GTX 580 avoids the pitfalls of the GF100 card release, such as high power consumption, high temperatures, and high noise levels we saw in those models. As such, the 580 could be seen to render...-
