    Hopefully it ends up being a good amount faster then that while maintaining reasonable power consumption and heat. That's all i really ask personally.

    At least a 30% and above increase with improvements in efficiency over the Fermi Architecture.:)

    I'm sorry but I want this GPU to bring the heat! (No pun intended). I mean If the 580 kicks the 69xx series ass we all win! Plus Ill finally have a good excuse to go green!

    That's almost an oxymoron.

    In all fairness i did put "If", "Fudzilla" and "True" in one sentence. As oppossed to "TPU" and "says".

    I so can't wait to see what the 580 can do, well the 6970 as well :laugh: i only recived my 6870's today but if either of the new top end cards really impresses me i think it will be time for a psu upgrade :D

    Although heat will play a major part in my choice as im being cooked alive as i type :roll:

    all this talk.......and it will be:
    GTX580 like 5% faster than 6970 and 100USD more
    6950 equal or slightly faster than GTX480 for 300USD
    6990 kicking both of their asses(25% - 30%) for 150USD more (than GTX580)

    HD 6950 300USD
    HD 6970 400USD
    GTX 580 500USD
    HD 6990 650USD

    PD: HD 6990 will be 2x HD 6950

    It's not like a genius is needed to figure that out.

    Glad to see that, so far, they plan to keep all the display connectors in the first slot space. I can't stand the way ATI puts them across 2 slots. I water cool, and want the option to go single slot with a full cover block.

    And, considering I water cool, I don't care about the stock cooler or heat output.

    All I want to know is performance and price.

    Wow. 20% improvement is pretty good, imho. These cards get into the 100s of fps in most games out today. Nice little wave to be in. :p

    Creepy panda 'shop.

    Fixed. :p

    And if the GTX 580 is powerful and doesn't heat up so much i might be going green. ;)

    What's the shader core rate on 480?



    Also if this turns out to be gf100 and not a refiddle of 460 then LULZ at paying for and overclocked 480 lol ( I know it has more shaders, but I think the overclocking potential of this new card will be crippled, so 580 vs 480 = pretty equal.

    Infact

    buy one of these chaps

    20% improvement over a 480 XD

    The 580 is hardly a new generation chip. It's not even an evolution one. It's just an enhanced 480. If any of you guys here doing professional 3D design or modelling knows what I'm talking about. the 580 is based on nvidia Quadro 6000, which is just a 5000 with some more CUDA cores and features (not so many...).

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/product-quadro-6000-us.html

    Just compare Quadro 5000, 5800 and 6000, to notice the difference. ;)

    If true, it failed from start.

    I reckon those pictures are fake. nvidia is going to release a bigger, badder and inevitably hotter card than the GTX 480, yet the cooler looks like a prototype GTX 480?

    Yeah sure. :rolleyes:

    However, it wouldn't surprise me if the GTX 580 is actually not severely delayed. After all, it's going to use a refined chip that nvidia have had a year to work on.

    I'll be bookmarking bta's news post and compare the real product when it comes with these pictures.

    Dunno why you dudes are saying A card is hotter then B card.

    Has anyone tried to put a 480 stock cooler on a 5870 card? If possible and the 5870 is hotter with the "newer" cooler, then the 480 is hotter the the 5870.

    Anyone considered that it's the cooler that sucks and not the card that's hotter?

    Personally, i would like to see someone putting a stock 5870 cooler on a 480 and vice-versa and compare temps: it would once and for all resolve this (if @ all possible, ofc).

    Well yes, but if the card draws 60% more power from the wall it's pretty likely it's gonna get hot with any cooler TBH.
