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.
