Nvidia Briefly Makes Mention of Secret GTX 580

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!

    Gawd I hope they finally make it dual core...

    512 CUDA cores? Not much of a jump in the number of cores for a new high end piece. Is there any info on a change in the architecture over the GTX480?

    Can only bet one thing : It will be pricy.

    So it's speculated to be a full 512-core 400-series / Fermi-based GPU, yet it's going to get an entirely new family numbering scheme? Why? Calling it something like the GTX 480+, 485 or 490 wouldn't work?

    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.

    This news is outdated from a week ago. Seriously. I don't see why Tom's Hardware just rip off of other companies; it's better than being outdated.

    Chances are it's just a dual Fermi gpu card with two 470 or 480 chips on one board - something to release when ATI announce their big guns next month.

    schizofrog512 CUDA cores? Not much of a jump in the number of cores for a new high end piece. Is there any info on a change in the architecture over the GTX480?The new GTX 580 will have 5000 CUDA cores, create 100 watt of power per minute, cool down the computer with it's quiet and col0.d fan, integrates GeForce, Quadro and Tesla together and be worth only $20 It will create Autostereoscopic 3D images on your monitor without 3D glasses or 120 Hz, it makes processors it's b**ch and best of all: it runs 100 times faster than the GTX 480, perform 50 times better than the Quadro 6000 and calculate 1000 times faster than the Tesla C2070.

    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.

  • Like anyone though they would not have a new high end card. Like anyone thought it wouldnt be called the GTX 580. How about some actual specs.

    How so if it's a single chip called the GF110?
