Report: Nvidia Stopping Production of GeForce GTX 580, 590

By - Source: SweClockers | B 50 comments

With the success of the Kepler-based GTX 680 and more units slated for May and beyond, Nvidia's partner manufacturers have stopped production of the GTX 580 & GTX 590.

Information coming out of SweClockers states that Nvidia has reportedly stopped production of GeForce GTX 580 GPUs. Launched in November, 2010, the GeForce GTX 580 had been the fastest single-GPU graphics card until AMD responded with Radeon HD 7900 series over a year later. With the successful launch of the GeForce GTX 680 and more Kepler based GPUs slated in May, the GeForce GTX 580 has served its purpose to users around the world. The cards will remain in inventory until fully excused out in the market. Nvidia has already stopped production of GeForce GTX 590, with the rumored dual Kepler-based card already in the works.

    Report: Nvidia readying two new 6xx series GPUs with performance suspiciously similar to the discontinued 580 and 590...

    Still rocking my 460 GTX on Skyrim and BF3. I don't care about any of these new cards until they can do things my old cards can't.

    I thought they would just rebadge them to 600 series :)

    I think nvidia has so much more to squeeze out of kepler that there's no need to rebadge them. However the 540 is getting rebadged as the 630M

    These new cards can do things your 460 can. Playable framerates in a LOT of games at resolutions where a 460 doesn't cut it.

    Interesting Nvidia sees how big of an advantage they have so they're putting production of the 6xx series to the max, I think this is a good thing, we should see some nice price decreases very soon and then everyone can buy happily. About time too, I'm still using my invincible 8800gt, best card ever imo.

    Better get me a 580 for my GPGPU applications before they are all gone -- can't afford the Tesla and the 680 sucks!

    6970 got a price drop and openCL is pretty mature now, and that card will blow away 580 based Teslas once the market switches off CUDA.

    I thought they already stopped producing the 590. It was overpriced compared to a 2 x 580 setup anyways.
