Report: Nvidia Stopping Production of GeForce GTX 580, 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.

    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.
