ZOTAC ZT-50101-10P GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works as expected with some freezing and SLI issues 09/14/2011

This review is from: ZOTAC ZT-50101-10P GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: - Incredibly fast, can run any game of today at max settings no problem
- Lots of great features using NVIDIA software to enhance games that may not self-enhancements (manual AFx16 works great in Oblivion!)
- Got it at a great price ($390)

Cons: - Card freezes once every 2-3 days on me. Granted it has never frozen in-game or in-application, but rather when on the desktop doing nothing. There is a chance this is a power supply issue of course, but that doesn't mean the card isn't freezing. It's simply easier to restart every few days (under 1 minute with SSD) than to spend hours taking stuff apart and testing if a new PSU could solve this.
- SLI mode for 2 of these cards does not work for MANY people. DO NOT BUY ZOTAC GTX 580 AS A SECOND CARD FOR SLI.

Other Thoughts: Fact of the matter is, they deserve to lose 1 full egg for truly not supporting SLI on two of their cards; that's pretty pathetic if you ask me. They replace your cards with EVGA cards if you complain about it; more or less admitting to the problem.
