NVIDIA reportedly stopped production of GeForce GTX 580 graphics cards. Launched in November, 2010, the GeForce GTX 580 had been the fastest single-GPU graphics card for a year, before AMD responded with Radeon HD 7900 series. With launch of the GeForce GTX 680, and volumes of 28 nm chip production at TSMC looking positive, GeForce GTX 580 served its purpose. NVIDIA can stop production and leave remaining inventories get gradually digested by the market. NVIDIA had already stopped production of GeForce GTX 590.

It had a good run. Its still a nice card but with the performance of the new models- its almost time to send mine out to pasture.

Well done NVIDIA, this card has proven that with a little work the fermi architecture could produce some amazing high-end GPUs (unlike the GTX480).

i don't know whether it's a good news or bad news for me since their newest cards indeed monstrous one based on gaming performance but lack of gpgpu ability (i need this most for supporting my work rather than gaming), then i had no choice between upgrading my GTX580 to HD7970 or stay with my GTX580. ;)

A fantastic card by all measures, it served its purpose well, I plan to keep mine working hard for years to come, fare thee well GTX580.

I wonder what this means for companies like PNY who offered "lifetime warranty" on their cards, does EOL mean end of warranty?

oh PNY in particular were very clear with me that "life time warranty" meant the life time of the product, and that if it was no longer produced, it was no longer covered. Back in the days of the FX series I had it out with them over an FX 5200 Ultra that they produced for about 8 months and then discontinued to produce a different version with a new heatsink. When the fan on mine died I kindly asked them to replace it for me. They insisted that because they no longer produced the card they had no obligation to cover the warranty, despite the fact that they now had a replacement version they could send me. Luckily I was able to swap it out under Newegg's return policy (under 30 days) but when the replacement died I just swapped the fan for an aftermarket HSF. Never bought PNY since.

Well that borders on false advertising... :nutkick:

No wonder mostanufacturers won't offer lifetime warranty on any of their products, well I'm glad you were able to fix your card, my 580s are still rocking and havent gave me any trouble... yet, I'll stay away from PNY from now on, thanks for the heads up.

Thats why you don't buy PNY, and no need to put the GTX 580 out to pasture anytime soon it is still a monster card. Mine matches a 7950 no problem.

I know most companies that offer Lifetime warranties have plenty of back stock, and when that runs out they usually offer to replace it one time with a newer card of similar performance.

Yup, that's the sort of thing, I tend to do too. :)

My 580 is awesome and still rips through any game you throw at it. Remember, that it's only 10-15% slower than a GTX 680 at stock speeds, so if you don't wanna drop big bucks on the latest and greatest and get one for cheap, then it's a helluva bargain. :D

If you're considering upgrading from a 580 in the next few months, then don't get the midrange 680 masquerading as the top end card, but wait for the card based on the true top end GK110 GPU due in Q3 this year. That's what I'm doing and really looking forward to seeing what a GK110 can do.
