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.

For that price, I would just buy a 590. But I guess this is a must have for those WC/noise dampening freaks.

I am an owner of two great gtx 580's but I will make the comment for that price.... and even at those clocks this is too little too late to compete with a HD7970 which will probably have a performance increase of 60% to 80% over the HD6970. I know they are not supposed to compete with ATI's next gen cards (They are supposed to be a hold over stop gap card) but still at that price not the right way to go.
I can't imagine many people who are not sponsored for overclocking getting these. But even still..... Looks like a pretty awesome card!

FYI - This is the only one GTX 580 card with same as GTX 590 core on it (binned for lower power draw/higher clocks on normal cooling).

So take extremely tuned GTX 580 PCB, take best GPU available binned for max perf/watt, mix some magic souce into this, and here you go - EVGA's Ultra 580 Classy :)

Designed specially to shine in 3/4-way SLI with WC. Almost any can do 1GHz on WC w/o hassle in SLI.

This is on stock aircooling:

err, the GPU in the GTX 580 is a GF110. The 590 sports 2 of the same GF110, and it was released later, so technically, it's the 590 that is a 580x2 :/
Sorry, but can you explain what you're trying to say.

What TiN is saying is that 590 GPUs are binned by nVidia differently than their GTX580 counterparts.


EVGA has binned these 590 GPUs themselves, and put them in the GTX580 Classified PCB. Because the 590 GPUs are "higher quality" to begin with, and clock better, the "Ultra" moniker was added.

Pretty sure TiN works for EVGA, BTW(which is why he has the screenie of the unreleased card).

This one looks bitchin', but I don't have that much money! (and if I did, I would spend it on a new mobo, CPU, RAM, and still have some left over)

Solid design, custom pcb and what's more important strong VRM, I wonder how much heat dissipation the air cooled version can deliver and if it is any better than MSI extreme edition

What exactly is the point of this release? 7970 will be available in less than a month.

Surely noone is such a Nvidia fanboy as to ignore a new generation 28nm high end card?

These will be limited edition so they won't have a boat load of them to shift though I imagine a few enthusiast overclockers and such would possibly be interested in these if they are higher binned. And of course there are also the people with more money than sense who will buy them just because there the most expensive GPU's = best available :rolleyes:

The GTX 580 classified ultra air cooling design kind of reminds me of the Geforce 8800 ULTRA

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:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1059102/evga-evga-gtx-580-classified/140#post_14176581

http://www.overclock.net/t/1059102/evga-evga-gtx-580-classified/150#post_14176838

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.

Nobody is. Why don't you read my post to educate yourself? I was the first one to give unbiased info on this card on the known forums out there. I did many times and I'm keeping to do it as long as they keep on glorifying this crap.
