5 out of 5 eggs A very solid card that's still not out of the race 02/04/2013

This review is from: EVGA 015-P3-1580-AR GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros:

I've had this card for almost 3 years, and it's been free of problems and is still able to deliver above average performance on the latest games at the highest settings. The direction NVIDIA seems to have headed with its newest 600 line makes it all the stronger; if there's exceptions to "newer is always better" in the world of computer components, this card makes a strong one with the GTX 680. The 580s still beat 680s in some benchmarking, and have almost double the 64-bit math performance of the 680s (which opted for SLIGHTLY better 32-bit performance, to better gear toward the mainstream), while games are starting to catch on to 64-bit. The performance these cards deliver is still only marginally lower (~5% loss), overall, than NVIDIA's equivalent cards from the 600 line (though that doesn't say as much good about the 580 as bad about the 680).

Cons:

This edition's biggest drawback is the 1.5 GB of VRAM; these days, 2 GB should be the minimum. By now, all the augmented editions, like the 3 GB, are discontinued.
