Report: Nvidia Stopping Production of GeForce GTX 580, 590
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.
