NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 makes things right

It’s no secret that NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 480 was something of a let down as it had a delayed launch and struggled with all manner of problems like excessive heat production as well as insane power consumption. NVIDIA has gone back and refined their design which has lead to the introduction of their new GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. The new chip sports more stream processors than the GTX 480 and a bit more texture handling capability as well as faster clock rates which leads to some insane performance capability. How fast? Well a single 580 is up there in performance with some CrossFireX and SLI setups while a 580 SLI setup is currently top of the heap performance wise. They’ve also managed to bring the power requirements and heat output down to manageable levels making it a card mere mortals can have a hope in fitting into their normal systems.
