EVGA Introduces Two GeForce GTX 580 Classified Ultra graphics cards

To spice up the holidays of Nvidia fans, EVGA has developed a couple of 'new' GeForce GTX 580 Classified cards, two 'Ultra' models which come with GPU/shader/memory clocks of 900/1800/4212 MHz (previously-released GTX 580 Classified cards topped out at 855/1710/4212 MHz).

Beside the ultra-high clocks mentioned, EVGA's latest offerings feature 512 CUDA Cores, a 384-bit memory interface, 3 GB of GDDR5 memory, 4-way SLI and EVBot support, a custom PCB, a 14+3 phase power design, one NEC Proadlizer, Super Low ESR SP-Cap capacitors, and high frequency 3 MHz shielded inductors.

The air-cooled GeForce GTX 580 Classified Ultra costs $619.99 while the water-cooled GeForce GTX 580 Classified Ultra Hydro Copper has a price tag of $749.99. Neither card is shipping yet but hopefully they will become available very soon.

Yeah, right. You're spreading lies and garbage. Just like you did before the card came out, we saw the reviews... your card blew as I said many times before. But yeah, you have to come up with these to get paid, right? Because this piece of garbage doesn't sell. Because you idiotically built the card purely for extreme OC'ing.

Let's look at these posts again:

So what's this "binning" ? It stands for hand picking, which takes much manwork to do. In order to bin, you have to jack up the price. If the card was binned, it'd have cost way more over the regular Classy, not $10-20 more. It's very rarely ever done on retail samples. Ok, but now what did you do? You upped the fan speeds, VCore, clocks then named it as "Ultra". Like that "FTW" and "Superclocked" nonsense. What a rip-off, eh?

Oh and, what about that "magic souce" ? Taken from the Guru3D review:

"So then overclocked power consumption went up towards 439W, the heat levels remain to be roughly 70C in a game stress test. The noise level however jumped up a tiny bit to roughly 44/45 DBa."

Hmm, these values don't look right for a 580? Must be magic. :D

Any 580 is better than this card. Let it be reference, Lightning, Ultra Durable. It's ugly, loud, power hungry, not cooled well enough and why does it need not only two, but three 8-PIN's? Don't you realize the extra 2-pin's on PCI-E 8-pin are just for ground, and not for extra power? The card could have been done with 6-pin's instead, and using less connectors. Oh whatever.
The only one spreading Lies and Garbage is you. I'm not going into detail but you are talking about the 580 Classified not the 580 Classified Ultra (this is what the article is going on about). The lack of attention when criticizing and the ease with which you throw garbage at a company tells me everything I need to know about you. You lack tact and above all, respect.

I wish your accomplishments are met with the same attitude.
