    Default Nvidia Working on GTX 580 and GTX 475 Graphic Cards.

    Nvidia has confirmed two new graphic cards which will be released with in this year or later next year. The cards are named GTX 580 and GTX 475 ( Renamed to GTX 560). Recent reports reveal that the GTX 580 will be based on the GF-110 Architecture and will belong to the Geforce 500 Series. The card is built on a 40Nm process. The card will hold 512 Cuda Cores and packed with 2GB GDDR5 memory. Nvidia has set this card up to counter against the AMD’s High End Cayman based cards. One of the member from Geek3d.com managed to capture a picture of the GTX 580 on Nvidia’s Official site which you can see below:
    Other than this, A new card is also underway from nvidia which was previously named GTX 475 and was supposed to be built on the GF-104 chip but new reports reveal that Nvidia might rename it to GTX 560 and it will be based on the GF-114 chip. The card will go against the Mid-Range 6850 and 6870 cards which have just been released today by AMD. The card includes eight Streaming multiprocessors (SM) while the old GF104 had seven. The new card could end up with 384 Stream processors and 32 SFUs. So, the Stream processor number is up by 48. Texture units will be pumped up to 64. The card will easily outperform the GTX 470 and being built on a refined version of the GF-104 core, It means the card will have lesser TDP than the 470 while overclocking will be great and will consume much less power.

    Nvidia is preparing to launch its GF110-based GeForce GTX 580 by the end of November or early December 2010 with performance 20% faster than its current GeForce GTX 480, according to sources from graphics card makers.
    After GF110, Nvidia is also set to gradually unveil its GF112, GF114 and GF119 in 2011 with market positions similar to its GF104, GF106 and GF108, respectively. The company is also preparing to announce 28nm Kepler GPUs by the end of 2011 and is currently developing Maxwell as Kepler's successor.
    Meanwhile, AMD plans to launch two new GPUs under the Radeon HD 6000-series by the end of this week with a price point of NT$6,600-8,500 (US$214-275) and the company will also launch more new products in November and December.

    and obviously pricing valo thakle n heat r power kom thakle it will be an awesome gpu. both the 560 n 580.

    ---------- Post added at 12:05 ---------- Previous post was at 11:56 ----------

    The new design is mostly an improved version of the GTX 480 that boosts the number of processing cores from 448 to at least 512 while more than doubling the texture units, to 128, and widening the memory bandwidth with a 512-bit bus.

    Well its a good thing atleast.

    The working process is holding up, good.
    nVIDIA i want just these things.
    -good power consumption
    -low price
    -less nm tech

    That's all.
    Do these things you will see ATI banging up big time.

    and obviously pricing valo thakle n heat r power kom thakle it will be an awesome gpu. both the 560 n 580

    The new design is mostly an improved version of the GTX 480 that boosts the number of processing cores from 448 to at least 512 while more than doubling the texture units, to 128, and widening the memory bandwidth with a 512-bit bus.

    Well its a good thing atleast.


    the gtx 580 will be a 40nm tech. n as said it will require less power and heat. and gtx 560 will be GF 114 that is similar to GF 104 that is gtx 460.
    Having a 512bit bus is very, very unlikely, as it will net zero performance difference while consuming massive amounts of power + die size. My sources + assumptions say it will simply be a 384bit GTX480 with the 32 shaders enabled, since its disabled in the GTX480. Everything else will remain as it is. Its nothing new, just enabling disabled SP's and increasing clocks slightly

    GTX560 aka GTX475 is a GTX460 with the SP's enabled + higher clocks. Everything else remains the same. Performance will be faster than the GTX470, while power consumption for both the GTX580 and GTX560 compared to GTX480 and GTX460 will be similar, since there arent any major architectural changes. Where do u hear it will produce less power + heat? Also, GTX470 will eventually be phased out.

    Whats sad is there was a time when moving from one generation to the next (eg 6800gtx > 7800 gtx) was a complete architecture change. Now, especially nvidia deem it perfectly OK to move it from 4xx to 5xx by simply enabling disabled SP's and increasing clocks. Atleast they arent rebadging like 8800GT>9800GT.

    BTW, these are all rumours. I also hear that nvidia are looking to expand the GTX460 wider, creating two more products from it and filling the high end rather than progressing with enabling disabled SP's from the GTX480. The GTX480, even after enabling the extra 32SP's and increasing clocks, cannot keep up with Cayman while also consuming 25% extra power. Trust me

    sorry my bad. its the gtx 560 who will consume less power. n dnt know abt 580. i hope they do something with dat instead just enabling sp. then we will have good competition here in high end gpus also.....

    ---------- Post added at 11:39 ---------- Previous post was at 11:33 ----------

    n one more thing mazhar vai. though im not sure. may be gtx 580 will cope up with the hd 69xx the high end single gpu's. as the gtx 480 is still 15% faster. may be higher clocks n enabling sp will do the work to cope up with the hd 69xx. as we all know getting a 30% increase over hd 5870 isnt gonna easy. n thus a 15% over gtx 480. may be a 20% increase over gtx 480 n 35% over hd 5870. so whats gonna happen is very confusing ofcourse to me. n if gtx 580 with 512sp n higher clocks, increase its performance n somehow consume less power n heat (if possible only) then we are going to have a good competition near future.

    NVIDIA has set the release date for the GTX 580 for either November 8th or 9th, depending on where you live. The price tag is expect to be that of the GTX 480.The new card will have a slightly lower TDP (Thermal Design Power),than the GTX 480, at 244W versus the previous version, which had 250W.

    On a 40-nm die, the GTX 580 comes with 512 CUDA stream processingunits, 2GB of DDR5 memory and 128 texturing units, running on the GF
    100 core.According to a Chinese enthusiast forum, the GTX 580 will have a 15 to20 percent performance boost.Strong rumors have it that availibilty will be horrible though, with next to no cards on launch.

    Despite this, eNet insists that AIC partners will have GTX 580 card available for sale on November 9th.Quantities were not mentioned.You could call the the “Fermi done right”, but we shall see.

    New details about GTX 580 -

    New cooler detailed

    During the PDX LAN event, Nvidia's Tom Petersen showed some details regarding Nvidia's upcoming GTX 580 card. Nvidia went and completely detailed the new vapor chamber cooler and the new Alien vs. Triangles tech demo, all on the new GTX 580.

    The cooler is quite interesting this time as Nvidia decided to go for Vapor chamber cooling technology and made some quite bold claims regarding the noise output of the upcoming card. The cooler itself is pretty simple, at least if you had a chance to see one of the vapor chamber based coolers, as Sapphire did that a couple of times on its AMD based cards.





    According to the slides shown by Tom Petersen, the new GTX 580 is not only cooler and quieter than the GTX 480, it is even quieter than the not so quiet GTX 285. The new cooler should keep the new card well cooled and at around 47dBA in gaming scenario. This is a quite an impressive result considering that Nvidia didn't waste time to point out that this will be the fastest DirectX 11 card.



    The new tech demo is all about tesselation, something that Nvidia really wants to be seen. The new tech demo is rendered in real time with tesselation and made by Nvidia team. It will be quite interesting to see this tech demo on AMD's upcoming Cayman cards.



    Last but not least, Nvidia also showed the Call of Duty: Black Ops running on its GTX 580 card. Despite the fact that this is one of the upcoming games that a lot of gamers are quite keen to play, the most interesting fact is that it was run on the GTX 580 card and it looks like the new GPU gives a pretty smooth gameplay.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 reviewed: 'what the GTX 480 should have been'


    You saw the key specs slip out a little ahead of time, now it's the moment we've all been waiting for: the GeForce GTX 580 has been thoroughly benchmarked to see if its claim to being "the world's fastest DirectX 11 GPU" stands up to scrutiny. In short, yes it does. The unanimous conclusion reached among the reviewers was that the 580 cranks up the performance markedly relative to the GTX 480 -- with some citing gains between 10 and 20 percent and others finding up to 30 percent improvements -- while power draw, heat emissions, and noise were lowered across the board. ATI's AMD's Radeon HD 5870 wasn't completely crushed by the newcomer, but it was consistently behind NVIDIA's latest pixel pusher. Priced at $499, the GTX 580 is actually praised for offering good value, though its TDP of 244W might still require you to upgrade a few parts inside your rig to accommodate it, while current online prices are closer to $550. Anyhow, the pretty comparative bar charts await at the links below.

    Anandtech review ---- http://bit.ly/cWmIKH

    The answer we’ve decided is one of mild, but well earned praise. The GTX 580 is not the true next-generation successor to the GTX 480; it’s the GTX 480 having gone back in the womb for 7 months of development. Much like AMD, NVIDIA faced a situation where they were going to do a new product without a die shrink, and had limited options as a result. NVIDIA chose wisely, and came back with a card that can be both a decent performance upgrade and a refined GTX 480 at the same time.

    With the GTX 480 we could recognize it as being the fastest single GPU card on the market, but only by recognizing the fact that it was hot and loud at the same time. For buyers the GTX 480 was a tradeoff product – sure it’s fast, but is it too hot/too loud for me? The GTX 580 requires no such tradeoff. We can never lose sight of the fact that it’s a high-end card and is going to be more power hungry, louder, and hotter than many other cards on the market, but it’s not the awkward card that the GTX 480 was. For these reasons our endorsement of the GTX 580 is much more straightforward.

    What we’re left with today is something much closer to the “traditional” state of the GPU market: NVIDIA has the world’s fastest single-GPU card, while AMD is currently nipping at their heels with multi-GPU products. Both the Radeon HD 5970 and Radeon HD 6870 CF are worthy competitors to the GTX 580 – they’re faster and in the case of the 6870 CF largely comparable in terms of power/temperature/noise. If you have a board capable of supporting a pair of 6870s and don’t mind the extra power it’s hard to go wrong, but only if you’re willing to put up with the limitations of a multi-GPU setup. It’s a very personal choice – we’d be willing to trade the performance for the simplicity of avoiding a multi-GPU setup, but we can’t speak for everyone.
