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 which is based on GeForce GTX 580 GPU.
This card 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.
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.
WE HAVE LIFT OFF!!!!
This review is from: EVGA 03G-P3-1594-RX GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Pros: Ok I have the ultra and wanted a second card. So i bought this one. I love the first 580 and I love this one as well. I seen a steady 78 to 84% jump in ever game i have tried them out of. Being I am in no hurry to get a 680 I am very happy with these. I will wait until next nvidia cards that come out.
Cons: None at all....these cards are smoking fast.
Other Thoughts: They did not install them selfs, Oh and my new power supply is not liking a second card. +12v rails are bouncing up and down. Going to need to rma it. These things love power. I will jump to a 1500w or 1600w. I like having more than one would need when it comes to power.
