NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 GPU Features Detailed At PDXLAN

NVIDIA has put up on Youtube a video of their "unreleased GPU" aka the GeForce GTX 580 at PDXLAN 16.5. The video shows Tom Petersen, Director of Technical Marketing at NVIDIA, introducing 'an upcoming' video card that we believe is the GeForce GTX 580. NVIDIA announced some of the upcoming technology of the video card that is worth looking at! Can you say vapor chamber cooling and a noise level of just 47dB?

Nvidia .... Are they going to lie again ?
They promised lower temperatures and not so much of a furnace for the GTX480 ,
but did they really do it ?
After all , AMD really puts their words into well , words .

They never told us that it the GTX480 would be cool.. they told us in 2009 it would be hotter than crap and be power hungry, so in March 2010 when it came out we weren't shocked. Remember in 2009 at Computex companies were talking about GTX480 SLI certified cases.

You will see the temperature results in my review and I think you'll be happy.

Its good to see that Nvidia finally realizes that the standard heatsink they've used on their current high cards isn't cut it.
There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.

I realized what i am doing was wrong ... so sorry apop ,
thank god it is indeed much cooler .
But let's hope they can get rid of the awful TDP limiting device that goes off once it hits 240W ... ( right ? )
