Thanks to CyberPower, we have the early technical specs on the new flagship Fermi GF110.

Nvidia hinted at something big and new on the way. It touted it as the "Fastest DX11 GPU on Planet!" – and now we know what it is.

Courtesy of a press release, posted on TweakTown, from enthusiast rig maker CyberPower, we get to learn about the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 580, which is based on the GF110 GPU.

In addition to the vapor chamber cooler that we learned about earlier in the Nvidia presentation, we now know the GTX 580 runs at 772MHz, features 512 CUDA cores and packs 1.5GB of GDDR5 at 4008MHz, which is capable of delivering bandwidth of 192.4 GB/sec.

UPDATE: Our full review with benchmarks is tasty and ready for your reading enjoyment!

    hardly worthy of the gtx580 moniker, it's basically what the gtx480 was supposed to be (16 SMs) so why not call it gtx485 or gtx490?

    Both ATi and Nvidia are raping their naming schemes, what a surprise

    Hope that it's not the hottest or loudest card on earth.
    or if so it would put the PCs on fire. :) 
    an ATI owner, but supporter of the competiton between both.

    about tech powerup review.. I have never understood why you want to test the premium cards at 1024 and 1280...

    Yeps, TechPowerUp is down. However you can see on this forum that people talk about 10-15% improvement over 480 http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?&m=671349&mpage=1 based on the review. If this is the case, 6970 will probably be slightly faster.

    Well, it is a good card performance wise, but I want some power consumption numbers. In another news, I have been hearing that Radeon 6970 will be capable of 230 GB/s. If that is true, this card won't be the fastest single GPU for long.

    Going by the google cached page, Nvidia was probably going to get mad at them due to NDA breach for this:
    "Apart from the GeForce GTX 580, GPU-Z 0.4.8 supports GeForce GT 420 and GT 440 (which are currently OEM-only products)."

    Or the fact they already have a review up for a thing under NDA lol.

    According to it has a hardware limited 300w power consumption. Not sure personally, still going over the reading material same as every other nerd up at early morning (eastern).
