The new badass of badass is out. Today marks a landmark event for Nvidia's Fermi based architecture. Based on specs alone i will post comparisons to ATI's hottest cards also. And as Benchmarking with and without overclocking becomes available within the next few ddays i will post results to Nvidias claims of the worlds fastest GPU. Prepare for war my children. And start here, this site has been my home for a long time now check out cookmans review. http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/nvidia_gtx580/

Here are the specs on a price comparible $599 5970
Chipset Manufacturer:ATI
Core Clock:725MHz
Stream Processors:3200 (1600 x 2) Stream Processing Units
Effective Memory Clock:1000MHz (4.0Gbps)
DirectX:DirectX 11
HDMI:1 x HDMI (via Adapter)
DisplayPort:1 x Mini DisplayPort
DVI:2 x DVI


Look at the streaming processors that this nasty hammer gives you! Memory clock of 1000Mhz at a speed of 4.0 gb a second is fast, i dont see Nvidia coming close to these numbers.

Specs for a $599 GTX 580
NVIDIA
Core Clock:772MHz
Shader Clock:1544MHz
Stream Processors:512 Processor Cores
Effective Memory Clock:4008MHz
DirectX:DirectX 11
OpenGL:OpenGL 4.1
HDMI:1 x mini HDMI

Well looky here, the memory effective clock is only a tad better, which doesnt mean shit. I bet that the Nvidia card is still behind at a 3.5-3.6gbs rate. Streaming processors is a joke compared to the ATI. So preliminary findings show that the ATI is still the nastiest card out right now. In a few hours/days i will post my findings of camparisons between the two.

lets work this together or you can do it solo if you want and make a big nice blog in the tech blog about this ... !!!! btw you are on my task force now and i don't know if we still changing the name on the forums from member to Task Force ...

Thank you

Final Thoughts: the Price of Speed
As we’ve seen, Nvidia’s GTX 580 is clearly the fastest single GPU card on the market today. Given that we’re looking at an early reference sample, it’s likely that we’ll see factory overclocked cards emerge in the next several months, pushing performance up even further.

However, the price for this level of single GPU goodness is steep. Nvidia’s suggested pricing for the GTX 580 is $499. As always happens when a new GPU arrives, we start to see price moves by the competition. Radeon HD 5870s are now down to under $350 (under $340 in some cases.) The Radeon HD 6870, which is just a little slower, but more efficient, than the HD 5870, is under $250.

Even the somewhat scarce Radeon HD 5970 is seeing price drops. You can pick up a Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 for $499, $469 after a $30 rebate. AMD also likes to refer to the HIS HD 5970, but that’s listed as “deactivated” on Newegg. However, other HD 5970s remain either very expensive or unavailable. Really, AMD’s real answer to the GF110, code-named Cayman, isn’t out yet. The Radeon HD 5970 really isn’t a mainstream card.

Of course, we don’t know what the yields are on GF110 yet, or what availability will be. Cards from companies like eVGA and Asus will likely be slightly north of the $499 price point, at least initially.

On the other hand, the GTX 580 is still 10.5 inches long, so will fit in more modest cases than an HD 5970. Nvidia recommends a 600W PSU for a single GTX 580. Given what we’ve seen with our performance tests, you don’t really need more than one card for a typical 1920x1200 or 1920x1080 display. But if you want three displays, particularly three displays coupled with Nvidia’s 3D Vision stereoscopic 3D glasses, you’ll want two – but the much more modestly priced GTX 470 might work just as well in those scenarios.

So Fermi – the real Fermi – has arrived. It’s still pricey and power hungry, but quieter and performs much better. We’re looking forward to checking out retail cards, but for now, the fully operational GTX 580 should delight gamers with deep pockets.

I have not used any of my own opinons for this post. Here is the link for the original: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/gtx_580_lab_test_real_fermi_arrives

Hell yeah bro we can do it together, i was posting prelim shit. And no nig deal about the task force name. We both know i dont know enough on the server side of things for that qualification lol.

As more and more benchmarks and such come out me and Camarada will be posting them, ATI's newest 6000 series card will no doubt release by the end of this week so we will also have a nice plagerized section for that too. I have emailed EVGA and asked them about putting up the cash for loaner 580's. Yes i would like to benchmark them myself and EVGA does that so wish me luck.

man...only been 3 months since i bought my 5850 and now 6000??? since the price came down on 5850, i will go buy another card and have CROSSFIRE!!!!

Update: Check out this new video of custom benchmarking using sli and crossfire between 460's, 480's and 5870's these results may surprise some of you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEZRaOddTw4

Oh no you didnt, wait i mean couldnt! beat the 580 even with the new cayman 6900 series its highly unlikely ATI can compete with the Nvidia 580 hahahaha.

What a noob ... the point for ATI with the new Cayman chips ... 6900 series wasn't performance .. it was COST and Revenues .. ATI never tried to achieve the top card with that series .. people were complaining because the price for the 5870 and the 5970 is astronomical.. therefore the 6900 series can achieve almost the same performance paying less.. I can see a lot of people paying 300 dollars for an ATI card that have the same performance of a 500 dollar Nvidia card ...

Let me find the link where ATI says what they want with to achieve with the launching of the 6000 series

Hahaha, whats funny is the only people the run at the mouth are the ones in fact that can buy the 580 and the 5970. When the final price is rendered for the 6900 series card i will believe what your saying, but just remember that it still the same arguement that will always be their. The 6900 is still a dual gpu that is hit and miss with the new 570, so with that said maybe ATI fanboys can understand the power of the 580 single gpu.

I know i cant afford any of these cards lol, i dont have the need for them either. Ill stick with the cards that arent cheap but dont kill the wallet and produce good fps and quality.

Its going to be sexy and you have to plug that bitch with a hose straight from one of the dams in VA cuz you are going to need COLD water . LOL... maybe LiquidNitrogen cooling !! LOLz .. no joke .. i wish i can achieve cooler temps with watercooling

Your retarded, Nvidia came out with a new way of cooling, maybe you should look into things before you open your trap Camarada.

Wow look at that cooler than your card, my card and geez even the 2nd best card out the 5970.

80 celcius is not acceptable .. i don't know what are you talking about ... i wouldnt run my card at 80 celcius ever ... mine stays in they 40's .. and even with the fans .. i never had to turn it 100% to stay in the 50's celcius and i'm talking battlefield bad company 2 running for hours ......

Not acceptable for ATI arcitechture, but perfectly normal with an Nvidia card. And i didnt see in the review where it stated 80c
