This review is from: Palit GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) DirectX 11 NE5X5800F09CB 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Pros: -- The Good: *No micro-stuttering (unlike GTX295 & HD5970) *Performance is actually clearly superior to the GTX295 or HD 5870. *Seems to handle anti-aliasing better than the GTX295 or the GTX480. *DX11 compliant, with the horsepower to actually use the DX11 capability. *Runs cooler than the GTX480. *Runs quieter than the GTX480. *On stock it idles at 30 C to 35 C *Seems to run 66 C to 70 C on a load. *Consumes 244 watts against the 289 watts the GTX295 consumed. *Plays all modern games on highest settings. *SLI capability (superfluous though it may be). *Over-clocking potential (according to many sources). *Came with an HDMI cable.
Cons: -- -- The Not So Good: *Expensive. *Only marginally faster than the GTX480. *Huge and heavy. *Is not free. *Did not include free games.
Other Thoughts: As may reviews on the internet have stated, this is the first realization of what the Fermi architecture was promised to be.
