EVGA has created a themed-based GTX 580 around the release of Batman: Arkham City, a Rocksteady Studio / Warner Bros. Studio game. The graphics utilized on the packaging and graphics card are based on the game's signature image. Sadly, the tiny print at the bottom of EVGA's site gives the bad news that the game is not included with this card. Even more puzzling is that other EVGA graphics cards without the Batman theme do come with the game.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) Superclocked Batman: Arkham City Edition comes standard with 512 CUDA Cores, Core/Shader clocks of 797/1594 MHz, a 384-bit memory interface, 1536MB of GDDR5 memory (memory clock at 4050 MHz), SLI support, dual DVI outputs and a mini HDMI output. To learn about the performance of the GTX 580, check out the GeForce GTX 580 And GF110: The Way Nvidia Meant It To Be Played review by Chris Angelini.
"The world's fastest GPU has arrived with the EVGA GeForce GTX 580. Experience blockbuster games like Batman Arkham City in its full glory with everything cranked to the max. Not only does the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 rip through the latest games, it also runs quieter than the previous generation and as you have come to expect from GeForce GTX GPU, the GTX 580 packs support for all the premium GTX gaming technologies such as Nvidia Surround, 3D Vision, PhysX and SLI. With all these features and more, it is easy to see how the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 obliterates the competition." - EVGA states on its website
The EVGA themed GTX 580 (model number 015-P3-1582-A1) can be found at Newegg for $529.99, which is $30 more than the standard GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) Superclocked.

So.... They put a sticker on their superclocked GPU and upped the cost $30?Reply
This is news because...?

and it doesn't come with the game? $30 for what? lame. nice card, but really most games play on 560ti card.Reply
wow a 30$ sticker... it must be UV reactive?Reply
Tom's will going to having a benchmark for this GPU(i hope)Reply
And let see it how this GPU handle.
I like know difference between GTX 580 vs Batman GTX 580 ^^
They realize they put the graphic on the wrong side of the card right? In the case that graphic faces down, you won't be able to see it even if you have a window.Reply
Though I guess it does make some sense to have a Batman Nvidia card, since its probably the only premier game coming out utilizing physX.
stm1185, the sticker is on the correct side for 1/2 of the cases out there. now cases have the power supply on the bottom and the case is basically flipped upside down.Reply
IT DOESN'T COME WITH THE GAME? You're serious? Am I on camera or something?Reply

The difference is this: one has a sticker, the other one does not...
The GPU and clock settings are identical to the regular superclocked edition by the same vendor
