    Memory 384 bit @ 4GHz!? wow!!!
    I believe that is a good news for scientific and gamming uses.

    Here in Brazil this will be very expensive! Maybe here comes around US$1100~US$1500 and only in 2011. =[

    But i'm not ready to use it... no needed for me, more than I can use.

    unlike some people, im not going to post this in every single thread about new GTX 580's.

    a GTX 580 is the currently fastest Dx11 GPU. Period. the 5970 is a Dual GPU card so it should be no surprise that it is faster, and the 6970 is not even out yet. For the single gpu cards, Nvidia is still king, and if Nvidia ever makes a Fermi Dual GPU card, Nvidia will reign supreme yet again.

    HD 5970 - fastest vcard on the planet - 1 year old - ati, overall performance crown
    GTX 580 - fastest single gpu card (for now) - 20 hours old - nvidia, not

    IF nvidia could release a dual gpu they would have done it long ago a take performance crown from HD5970.

    You know there is something wrong when people start to compare a dual-gpu with a single gpu.

    Why is Zotac claiming the fastest card when it looks like the same specs as every other 580 that is also being released today?

    This article says fastest card, meaning one board, not one GPU.

    when Nvidia had 9800GX2 everyone was comparing with a single gup ATI single and was saying WoW N-v-dia Rock

    but when ATI's x2 wins... they just give reasons :roll:

    Either discuss the product or move on, forget excuses and the comments that have nothing to do with Zotac or a 580.
    u2konline and 1c3d0g say thanks.
