Zotac GTX580 Review

Alien vs Predator

AvP makes huge use of texture filtering with its outstanding lighting effects and so we'd expect the enhanced architecture of the GTX580 to really shine here and it certainly does. Any extra performance that tips the balance from under 60 to over 60 frames-per-second is a welcome improvement indeed.

Call of Duty Black Ops

Never let it be said that we're not at the cutting edge of releases here at OC3D. Sadly though the other thing that is as reliable as the tides is how many developers are frame-limiting their PC releases. Sure anything over 60FPS is pointless, but it's no good to us. We'll put it on the pile with Medal of Honor.

Be interested in what you thought of the drivers. What we've picked up was that it seemed as if just the identifiers were in the 262.xx, and that 263.xx atleast should have some 5xx 'special stuff' in them.

The oc too, somewhere around 100mhz should really be achieveable as there will be something like a 835 or 850 "oc" variant on the market using the same cooler and the usual crappy compound.

Not really worth it if you got a tamed 480. But £400 should really be the stock versions price prior to christmas, dropping to £350-375 in Q1.Quote
