Posted by Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 10/04/2011 01:00 PM [ 0 comment(s) ]
eVGA just released a new series of GeForce GTX 580 based cards, an interesting move because that really indicates there won't be a new high-end product in Q4 Christmas season, a first ever for NVIDIA really.
And yeah, the GeForce GTX 580 is now officially a year old, as it originally was released in November 2010. In Spring and Summer we already have seen some outstanding enthusiast redesigns and there is a myriad available of them, like the Lightning series from MSI, the DirectCU versions from ASUS, the SOC version from Gigabyte and more and more.
eVGA now releases the GTX 580 Classified. It is released in three flavors, the 'regular' version with air cooling, a liquid cooled version and then for the 0.000000001% of pro overclockers a kit with LN2 sub-zero cooling pots. In-between these models you can opt for 1.5 and 3 GB versions as well.
The card tested today comes with a funky dual-slot cooling design based on an 8 cm fan. eVGA overhauled the PCB design and wanted just the best on it so you'll spot a customized VRM and 14+3 phase design , NEC Proadlizer capacitors, voltage probe points, 3 MHz shielded inductors and there even is an EVBot connector for on-the-fly overclocking with an external control pod you may purchase.
Also tiny intricate insertions like dual BIOS and voltage status LEDs have been embedded.You better gear up with a proper power supply though as you need to connect two 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI Express power connectors. The 512 shader processor encounting GPU runs factory overclocked, 855 MHz and 1710 MHz for the GPU and shaders, respectively. The graphics memory comes clocked in at at 4,212 MHz.
We are flabbergasted by the nice looks, yet are a little restless by the cooling as you'll learn in this review. Display connectivity includes two DVI connectors. the card been released as we speak and small volume availability can be found at major retailers. So for that first hands on experience, where else do you need to be other then at Guru3D.com ? Next page please where we startup the review.
Today a review the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX edition. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review
In this article we review the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review with that SC for superclocked. The product is fairly reference looking but does come with EVGA's own styled cooler, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked quite significant.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC review
We review the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC aka SuperClocked edition. as the name implies it is already factory overclocked for you with a 1046 MHz baseclock that can boost towards 1111 MHz.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC review
We have another GeForce GTX 660 Ti review for you today as we'll put the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from EVGA to the test, it's their factory clocked version, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked (SC) version.So it isn't hard to understand that the factory overclocked GeForce 660 Ti SKUs will run fairly close to the GeForce GTX 670 (reference clocked) and maybe Let's have a peek.
