Gigabyte’s new GeForce GTX 580 Super Overclock card sports a custom cooler with three fans and frequencies that can be changed from 772MHz GPU and f 1544 MHz RAM (1.5GB) to 855MHz and 1710 MHz at the flip of a switch. Those used to AMD cards might be disappointed by the outputs, two DVI ports and one mini-HDMI output seem sparse compared to a Radeon. From X-bit Labs testing, the card proves faster than the HD6970 in all but one test by a range of 11% – 24%, however you are also looking at paying at least 30% more than an overclocked HD6970. See how your favourite games performed on the Gigabyte board in the full review.
"Today we are going to talk about features, functionality and performance of a very interesting and very fast graphics accelerator built on the most powerful GPU from Nvidia."
