    Nice review Tarinder, a shame most etailers are charging more than the RRP already. Hopefully just early adopter price.

    Re: Reviews - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 graphics card review

    Naming this card the 580 is such a cynical move by NVIDIA. This isn't a next-gen card, it's just a tweak on the 480. This should have been called the 490. But I guess the same could be said of the 6870 from AMD. Oh well. Yawn. Next please.

    After being delayed The GTX480 must be Nvidia's most short lived high-end card.

    Re: Reviews - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 graphics card review

    I'm not sure that I would want anything in my PC which can reach almost 100C during a game....

    how long do we have to wait for the 69xx release?

    Couldn't agree more. This naming convention is nothing more than "Bigger is better" marketing, and leaves the average consumer clueless if they don't follow the technology on a daily basis. This eeks of GTX 8800/9800/260 marketing, but I admit with "tweaking" under the hood. Looking at the PCB close-ups, I'd guess that GTX 480 water blocks wont fit it, so I for one will be sticking with my dual GTX 480's with EK blocks.

    Any chance of some folding benchmarks?

    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    The reviews and their comparison tables are the reason I first came to Hexus. Nice work.

    I'm not sure 88C (the gaming temperature reading) counts as almost 100C Although the 94C it hits during furmark is a shocking 10C hotter than my 8800GTX, and it certainly doesn't count as cool. Sounds like you could probably tweak the fan profile up a little though and still have a quiet card that's cooler than a GTX480...

    Re: Reviews - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 graphics card review

    One thing I do like about this card is that all the memory chips are on one side. That will make water-blocks more effective. To this end, it's about time some partners started to sell cheaper options without the stock cooler. This would allow enthusiasts to add there own water-blocks without having to bin the stock cooler. Every time I remove the stock cooler to add a water-block to a modern graphics card, I get a sick feeling that I paid hard cash for that useless lump of metal!

    I’m also a little concerned about the new power management system. This is now current-dependent and not temperature-dependent and will likely kick-in despite advanced water-cooling.

    Re: Reviews - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 graphics card review

    Hmmm.. Well I still look at 2 x 460 as a better bet from nVidia - downside being twice the waterblocks for me and that i'd have to 'hack' my PC to get SLI to work (thanks nVidia!) - upside being cheaper, less heat and just as quick.

    So.. seeing as nothing actually waxes my system i'm going to wait for the new AMD card and see what that's like before I jump. Grr.

    Well, it's still a toaster. But what surprises me is how well it does in the bang for buck table compared to other high end cards.

    Re: Reviews - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 graphics card review

    Firstly I'd like to add my thumbs up for a top review! Excellent in structure and layout.

    Regarding the additional information....

    I think that Bit-Tech did it quite eloquently when they covered which was the best card for folding, when they used the metrics:

    Points per day
    Points per watt
    Points per £

    Likewise, some sort of indication about the heat likely to be achieved under 24/7 folding.

    Also, what are EK etc doing about companion products such as blocks for watercooling them? I assume that these are these all reference designs pesently.

    Please keep up the excellent work!
