Yeah? And I could do 1250MHz on a hd3300. What's your point?
yeah you are right. view angle is matter
and i guess this card is for enthusiast that has alot of money and chasing performance over the looks
Id like to see some benchmarks!!!
Ah, but would they have enough LN2 to go the distance!
if 1.6Ghz was made on water then why would they need LN2???
It wasn't - I updated the news post. New member I'm your huckleberry made an excellent first post in pointing this out in post 19.
Just seen your edit, lol. Nice cat.
Your OP still says it...I see the update but... Why not straight up correct it?
Search this DB for people that can (easily) have stable benchmarks using LN2. Thats the ONLY point to use that stuff is to get through benchmarks.
Also, coil whine isnt caused by excessive power (I suppose it can be?). You can have a normal load run through a coil and it still whines. Hell I have had cards that have done this on idle even. The way you wrote that tells me its a direct correlation.
You look a little green Q....
A fair question, my friend.
There's a lot of do's and dont's to writing a news article that isn't apparent as a reader and I've been learning a lot from writing these for TPU.
Generally, when an article is updated or corrected, it's considered good practice to leave the original text in and just put an update in there. In the case of TPU it also has the benefit of keeping the forum comments consistent with what was initially posted - think all those skeptical cats.
And the 590 jealousy? Just a bit of humour that a single 580 can do better than a 590 with such a screaming overclock, lol.
The LN2 thing was another joke. I have an irreverent writing style.
Yes, the coil whine is indeed caused by more power going through the card. Some cards are worse than others and I think it basically depends on the quality of the components used how much stress they can take without making a noise. My 580 for example is really quiet on whatever gaming load I throw at it (fan ramps up, ok) and even with the Unigene demo benchie (fan ramps up a lot, especially with vsync off). However, run Folding@Home and after about 30 seconds, the most annoying, irrritating whine comes from it, making folding with it impossible. Just squeezing and gently wiggling the card affects the noise too, so it's definitely some poorly made/attached component(s) doing this. Mine is a standard reference design with a tiny factory overclock, which I haven't overclocked further. I'd expect that Classified card with its beefed up power circuitry to take a load like that in its stride and not make a noise about it.
I want to see performance in a CUDA application. Or even some Physx numbers.
I thought the Amp!ed 580 had a custom cooler The 480 one did have a dual fan, triple slot one IIRC.
The Asus 580 DCII managed to reach 1.5GHz with it's custom VRMs. Pity no one thought of fiddling with the Matrix 580. Still, I'd love to see what these Classified boards can achieve on air. Though the cooler doesn't look promising.
Yes, CUDE and F@H benchies would be interesting indeed.
My 580 Amp! is just like a regular 580. with the BIOS upped a bit on the clock speeds. At the time, Amazon had it at the same price as a regular one, so I got it. The overclock makes the smallest of differences, around 3%, so it's not really worth bothering about - it just allows Zotac to jack up the price in most cases.
TPU actually reviewed this very card, here.
Zotac product page, here.
Yeah, I'm not surprised that Asus have also done this - they're firmly in the enthusiast camp and the three slot cooler has to be more efficient, surely.
I don't think they claimed it was on water. If you look at the top of the page, the picture shows them using LN2?
I should have one of these next week, maybe I'll post some bench scores on air.
Heres a KPC link with more info and pics.http://kingpincooling.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1424
One hell of a card...but that price tag...damn...
I love the cooler, though.
Change the title of your post or remove it... IMO... make me read your post just to find out in the end is B.S. :shadedshu
Yes, the Gaming Blend article is ambiguous. I initially thought this must be on LN2.
OMG what a monster. Good find.
Question is what can they get on air, and are these cherry picked chips.
I'd bank on them being cherry picked: that EVGA rep on the EVGA forum said they'd be available in limited quantities. Besides, a GPU intended for extreme performance is gonna have to be cherry picked, isn't it?
fair enough, I assumed as much but would be nice to know for sure.
Sir Mix-a-lot edition graphic card
Evga got back!
also the card's GPU isn't cherry picked, they don't do that, people only think they do. Apart from some very rare examples, or really only one i know of, no chips are cherry picked for retail sale except for like OC events.
Anyways this is a sick card, glad it came out.
but see all you gotta do is 4 posts a day for 4 years about to get a custom title lol.
I think they would cherry pick them for cards like this, but I don't know definitively, to argue one way or another.
Oh yeah, 4 posts per day is just the average. I wasn't all that active until about 1 to 2 years ago, then I started posting like crazy - and keeping all our mods busy looking over every post, hehe. Dunno, TPU simply became very compelling and I just went nuts!
