PNY GTX580 Liquid Cooled Review

Far Cry 2 and Metro 2033

PNY GTX580 Liquid Cooled Review

Far Cry 2

The older technology behind Far Cry 2 responds far better to pure clockspeed than any architectural tricks and tweaks, and our results bear this out. Two GPUs are definitely better than one, even one as capable as the PNY GTX580.

Metro 2033

Metro 2033 is becoming a bit of a Crysis Warhead when it comes to head-scratching results. It's so dependant upon multi-GPU solutions that our PNY GTX580 gives the same results as we saw from the Sparkle GTX560Ti. Given how well the PNY performs in our other tests this is obviously a fault of the 4A Engine itself, rather than an issue with the card.

It does get warm, but not beyond any recomended levels. The card fan does stay on a lower speed because the GPU core is so cool.Quote
