ASUS GTX580 SLI Exclusive Review


ASUS GTX580 SLI Review


The box is the easily recognisable ASUS design. RPG-style man on horseback, lots of big logos, but everything clear and easy to see.

Internal packaging follows the standard ASUS formula of the incredibly sturdy black box with the gold ASUS logo we're all used to, as well as the standard set of accessories.

The cards sport the same reference cooler that the we looked at with the Zotac. The main difference here is the stealthy look of the ASUS card. Wholly black but with a large white ASUS logo, it clearly is ready to be "blinged" when the higher performance variants are released.

Following the reference design we saw yesterday we have the twin DVI and mini HDMI, along with 8 and 6pin PCIe power connectors.

WOW I want them

It is a shame that I bought 2x460 SLI - I should wait and buy 1x580 from Asus.Quote

Wow wow wow wow wow! That's just insane performance! And it runs faster, quieter AND cooler than the Zotac! What is there to criticise? Well possibly the price, for those of us with out a job at the moment. But, post release of the 69xx series later his month, I'm banking on that dropping by as much as £50 if it comes anywhere near this in performance. Looks like I'll have to start saving up the reddies!Quote

Nice review Tom.. I like the Asus cards being plain jane.

Did the performance dip down at all when you had it clocked up to 950MHz on the core at all?? If it didn't then the issue of the card throttling before any decent overclocking can be done is blown out the windows.

Does look like you had a poo poo Zotac though.

Oh yeah and the SLI scaling in Metro is pretty decent.Quote
