Extreme overclockers Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido and Illya "TiN" Tsemenko are not satisfied with the overclocking capabilities of current generation graphics cards. They want overclocking capabilities and performance that exists beyond what is traditionally considered enthusiast level. To overcome this, they began to work with EVGA on designing a new card from the ground up that is 100% focused on being the single fastest and greatest overclocking card on the block. This was accomplished with the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified is engineered and designed to perform for everyone, from gamers to the top overclocking enthusiasts in the world. The dual slot top cooled design means that you do not need to worry about space or motherboard layout limitations, and this card supports everything from single card up to 4-way SLI out of the box.

  • newegg Created for Overclocking The EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified features a 14+3 Phase Power Design that can deliver over 1000W of power, and the redesigned cooling solution with an 8CM fan improves efficiency by as much as 30% (compared to the standard cooler). The NEC Proadlizer, Super Low ESR SP-Cap capacitors, and high frequency 3MHz shielded inductors provide clean and precise voltage control, and the onboard voltage probe points let you monitor them with ease. Of course, full support for the EVGA EVBot means that you can overclock and monitor your card on the fly, and a special OC BIOS enables extreme overclocking mode.

5 out of 5 eggsThis card delivers...

Pros: Very nice video card, a solid performer. Runs cooler temperatures than my previous GTX 480. It runs every game I have at max settings with ease.

Cons: BIG. (if that's necessarily a con) I had to upgrade to a wider computer case, which really wasn't a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Make sure that this card will fit in your computer case. I have a full server tower, and I had to removed one of the case fans, and then I had to squeeze the side cover in very carefully. The power connectors are actually rubbing against the sheet metal. Secondly, make sure the 12 volt rails on your power supply have enough amperage for this card. It doesn't matter if you have a 2000 watt power supply. EVGA themselves state clearly on their website that this card requires a "minimum" of 42 amps.

5 out of 5 eggsVery impressed

Pros: PLAYS EVERYTHING @ 1920/1080 completely maxxed out.
BF3 on Ultra is beyond butter.
Lower power consumption than my old GTX 295.

Cons: Power hungry. Needs 2 8pin and a single 6.
If you have a great PSU, you're set. I have a 1000 wt, and am worried about running another in SLI. With the stock 580's, it's not an issue.

Other Thoughts: Best card I've ever owned hands down. I ran 2 GTX295's (quad 270's) before this, and it completely smokes that setup.

Recommended... highly

4 out of 5 eggsGood as they say

Pros: I picked up two of these cards for my first build in ten years. The cards are insanely fast. BF3 Ultra @ 192x1200 85FPS is crazy. Skyrim doesn't stress the dynamic due at all. They handle the power requirements excellently, the cards stay surprising cool (never going over 65C for any game. The cards also have a lifetime warranty which is why I didn't go with the MSI Lighting Extreme cards. The cards have tons of headroom for additional overclocking. You can get almost 7%-10% gain over the reference cards.

Fast (2 in SLI)
Runs cool
Overclocked provides 5% gain over reference

Cons: The cards are very loud and require a lot of power (2x8pin along with 1x6pin). Under load they are noticeably loud. Of the vendor special build GTX580 designs this is the slowest card of the lot. MSI, ASUS, & Gigabyte special cards are all faster, before you overclock her.

The card doesn't look as striking as MSI.

Other Thoughts: This is a great card of any one that wants to run SLI in a higher resolution then 1080. They are loud so be ready for that but they stay rather cool under load and have tons of room for overclocking plus a life time warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: For my needs, this thing is perfect. It runs everything I can throw at it with near perfect results. Skyrim HD on ultra settings set at 1920x1080 flawless, SWToR at highest settings perfectly (those are the only games I've managed to throw at it so far)

Temps are well within operating range with a good airflow in the system, I have a full sized case with 3 of the big fans (I forget the dimensions) and 2 mid sized fans. It stays around 50-60 degrees at full load which is perfectly fine. No issues for startup, EVGA has great products that even were there an issue they'd bend over backwards to fix it and get you up and running.

Cons: Not a con exactly, as anyone that buys a mid to high range video card knows that these cards are big and that you have to have enough room in your case/mobo to support it.

Other Thoughts: Takes a lot of power cables, 2x8 and 1x6 power plugs, more than I've needed in the past but not an issue. Just make sure you have enough space for cable routing to not get in the way of anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Cards

Pros: Pickup two and SLI, getting min 105 FPS on BF3 with average 145FPS with all maxed out. I have the fans running manually at 61% and never see go past 51C on either card while playing BF3. This was a big change from my single asus GTX480- had the fans at 91% to keep it at 71C. Had to remove side fan on my full tower (cosmos-s) for me to fit these two beast.

Took me 2hr to install both cards and route all cables neatly. Glad I had an Antec 1200W PS. I supplied all separate power to each 8 and 6 plugs as suggested. Asus MB Extreme III + Intel 980 extreme +6GB dominator memory.

No OS or BF3 game crashes on the latest NVIDIA drivers.

NEWEGG did a fabulous job notifying me when stock was available to ordering process and fast delivery. Both cards were sealed new.

Cons: These cards are not only long (ok for my case) but are very tall, so removal of side fan was necessary and cables still hit against side panel. Power requirement for 2 of these SLI is high. What happen to the days when top of the line cards got me 300fps on my favorite FPS games.

Other Thoughts: At moment i'm running at 1920 X 1080 on a 23" monitor. Waiting to upgrade to a fast 27" LCD 2560 X 1600 120Hz back lid LED when they become available. Guess for now the 3gb on each of these cards is a loss in investment.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast of a gpu!

Pros: Great gpu by EVGA as expected.
Playing Bf3 and Skyrim with all hd texture mods and fxaa injector mod as well as ambient occlusions on from latest drivers, looks great and plays buttery smooth @ 60+ fps even without overclocking.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA GTX 580 Classified

Pros: didn't get this from newegg =( but i'll put my 2 cents in anyway. great card thus far. every game i've thrown at it runs ultra without issues, less BF3. BF3 will run ultra if you're ok at around 30/40 fps. the auto settings will get you to 50/70 range, which are basically the game on a mix of high/ultra settings. these are all with the card stock.

oc with evga precision. i've pushed it over a ghz on air with no voltage change. very stable. with the oc, bf3 runs ultra without any problems. once i can soft alter voltage, i'll probably attempt the 1.6 ghz push.

temps sit around 30 usually, 50 at oc. i've run a load test to around 70 with no prob to the card. remember this is all on air so far.

in summation, if you have the money, want to bench/oc, than get this card. if you just want a little oc, stick to a regular 580 like others here have said.

Cons: powering up this card was a slight pain. make sure you psu can power it, otherwise prep some adapters. remember the dedicated mobo power pins WILL NOT work for this card.

i thought i was fine with power but it turned out i wasn't. thankfully a-zon prime got me an adapter over night with $4 shipping. free student accounts for the win! but, check, and double check. if you're dedicated to this card, be ready for it.

these aren't really cons, just warnings. not at all a reasons to drop eggs.

Other Thoughts: some have complained about the possible potential to this card, saying a 10% oc isn't worth the price tag. keep in mind this cards full potential won't be seen without a voltage change. you'll probably see great oc without changing the voltage, but it'll shine once that's unlocked

voltage adjustments can only be made right now with the evbot or whatever the name is. a soft tool is coming according to evga. so be patient and quit complaining! you're dealing with hardware that basically should be labeled as experimental. so wait!

this is like a K intel chip. if you don't plan to push this to it's limits, don't get it and stop complaining. if you want to have some fun and oc the ish out of this card, get it.

pardon the wall-o-text. just wanted to get this all out there. also sorry about the "if you don't plan" rehash, but some need it pounded into their heads. :)
