Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC edition
Much like the tides of our sea and oceans, success in the graphics card industry comes and goes. When the GeForce GTX 480 got released people really dislikes the noise levels, power consumption and heat output, that product is now phased out as it never became a success.
Now, almost the very same product was made a tad more efficient, quite silent and now runs at better temperatures; yes the GeForce GTX 580. And guess what... despite a very high price tag, the product seems to become a nice success. As such, directly at launch, several models based of this SKU where already announced, e.g. the regular clocked models, factory higher clocked models, liquid cooled models.
Amongst them was Inno3D, which is launching an OC edition, in particular this is a reference GeForce GTX 580 that has been clocked faster to 820 MHz on the core where it also welcomes a nice bump on the overall memory frequency.
Yes, NVIDIA certainly did it right this time. Well they'd better be, as real soon AMD's Cayman aka Radeon HD 6970 is being released as well. These two cards will go head to head with each other in both price and performance, at least that's what we hope and can't wait to find out...
Exciting times with an exciting product, head on over to the next page where we'll start up a review on the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC edition. But not before you had a chance to peek at it of course.
In this review we'll look at the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from Inno3D, it's their all new GeForce GTX 660 Ti iCHILL version and to date is one of the most impressive graphics cards in the 660 Ti range we have tested.

We review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580OC. Despite a very high price tag the product seems to become a nice success.

Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC review
We test and review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC. The Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC model we test today flexes the GPU and memory muscle all the way up towards a rocking core of 750MHz, the shaders to 1500 MHz and the GDDR5 to 3800 MHz (effective). Armed with a 2-year limited warranty, Inno3D is trying real hard to not only bring a nice custom board to the market, but tries to release pre-overclocked models at a fairly normal pricing, yet with a hefty overclock. And whenever there's 'overclock' in the branding .. there is of course Guru3D.com
Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series review
We test and review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series. This GeForce GTX 480 graphics card is liquid cooled. With a liquid cooled loop you can bring down temperatures towards roughly 50 Degrees (under full load), that's roughly 40 degrees less than the reference cooler offers. Obviously you'll need a proper water-cooling setup to add this card to but yeah, today we'll review the i-ChiLL GeForce GTX 480 Black Series equipped with a liquid cooling block. In the package we'll spot a "full cover" water-block that is responsible for cooling down the GPU, Voltage Regulators, I/O chip, memory modules, and other critical components.
