AMD may have just released the latest batch of Radeon HD cards, which will lead to a brand new GPU family, but you can bet that Nvidia is cooking up something of its own. That special item could be the GeForce GTX 580 – a new high-end product.
Nvidia briefly listed the GeForce GTX 580 on its systems requirement page for the 3D Vision, so it's most definitely real. Nvidia's not ready to talk about it at all yet, though, as the company pulled the page before long.
Geeks3d managed to capture the image before it was taken down:
We don't know much beyond the name, but rumors say that it's a GF110-based card with 512 CUDA cores. Hopefully we'll find out soon!
I don't see why a fully-enabled Fermi-based GPU deserves a number series all to itself unless getting chips with 512 working cores really is that big an accomplishment. Considering the hardships NVIDIA originally had with GF100 production, maybe it is.
Nah, jk. It will consume a gajillion watts of power, melt the Earth, require Tri-SLI for support of 1 monitor and cost all of the world's money. :D
Well, one or the other.
