As you can see, the design hasn't changed much. GTX 580 just has no ventilation hole. Other changes are minor, but that's only logical since the GF110 GPU is similar to GF100. The card has a standard size for a high-end solution, so it should fit into any enclosure.

The novelty has supplementary power connectors: one 6-pin and one 8-pin, so make sure you have an adapter.

Maximum resolutions and frequencies:

  • 240 Hz maximum refresh rate
  • 2048 x 1536 x 32bit @ 85Hz Max -- analog interface
  • 2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz Max -- digital interface (Dual-Link DVI/HDMI)

As for the HDTV support, a review is available here.



According to the image, the chip was made on the 38th week, i.e. in September.
