The only problem with the tesselation demos is that nobody's making use of that stuff. The GTX 4X0 cards can all do it too and it doesn't matter.

And those shades of green bar graphs got leaked to the internet a couple weeks ago. They're circulating in a bunch of the GTX 580 rumor threads on various hardware forums.

Early benchmarks of the part the graphs are for haven't been exactly earth shattering.

I'll admit that's rather a lot of triangles/polygons they're pushing. It will be interesting to see where they can take this, game-wise.

Only problem is that a lot of this stuff is somewhat locked behind the proprietary stuff NVidia likes to write. Although this has changed a lot with DX11 and OpenCL.

Should be interesting to see how next month's ultra high end cards stack up against each other. Both ATI and NVidia unleash their big guns.

Yeah, actually it is. And you can buy it right now at places like NewEgg, as well as see reviews popping up on the web.

Looks like a nice card and definitely a drastic improvement over the 480, but that pricing is pretty ridiculous.

If you have a board that supports SLI and the power supply for it two GTX 460's outperform the 580 for over $100 less.

Yeah, it's settling in nicely. It does look like they tweaked the guts a bit, which is nice to see... but just from reading the anandtech article, about the internals on the chip, makes me feel like nvidia 'held back' a little bit for next years tech. In terms of layout, not so much in terms of pure silicon.

Aka they gave us enough to call it an improvement over the 480, but not everything they could have. They moved SOME of the improvements that the 460's show, over to the 580, but not all of them.

It IS nice to see the power requirements/leakage/etc, dropping, instead of climbing.

As for the 'new' vapor chamber cooling... *coughs* sapphire *coughs*

Still, good to see. I do like the new cooling solution better. Vapor chamber cooling gives more even cooling, for one thing, which allows you to use more of your cooling capacity, better. (because the heat doesn't get concentrated around the heat pipes on the fins, and there's no hot spots on the cores where the heatpipe is in the wrong position for optimal heat pickup).

As evidenced by the slightly cooler temps and overall noise reduction (which is also partly caused by the slightly lower power consumption).

Is it a win? Yep... decent one too. I just feel it could have been better. Believe it was in the anandtech article... this is really just a gtx485, with a 5xx name. But AMD released a new series, so nvidia had to, as well.

As far as going vs SLI... well... two card setups have a lot of advantages... but you have to deal with making sli/crossfire actually work in a game. It's a lot better now than it used to be, though. But new games can be stuck, if nvidia/amd don't have time to work with the game developer to get it working.

Props to Nvidia... this stuff aint easy by any stretch.

Basically what the GTX 480 originally should have been.

this 560 package amuses me:



too bad it's only the 1 gig, while I'm eying 2 gig version.
