If you're one of those people who play with sub-zero cooling in an attempt to break records the SOC comes equipped with dual-BIOS, one of which is specifically tailored to the needs of the LN2 brigade, and here is the switch that makes it all possible.

There is a huge amount of GDDR5 and power control built in to the GTX580 SOC. The cooler is a work of art, being amazingly thin but also built with a serious attention to detail and high quality standards. Just look at it.

Yes this is a genuine vapour-chamber cooler. The give-away is that little nipple from where it's been filled.

The very definition of business-like. No fancy frippery here, just a monster cooler with plenty of space to exhaust the heat.

Accessories are as one would expect, although it's nice to see the inclusion of a HDMI cable in the package.

Impressive card. I must admit that Gigabyte is becoming my favourite brand. Would love to have two of these in sli. Will probably cost around 800£ for two of these

Actually two costs 946£. Gotta love the prizes in Norway Quote

This is a great card. I don't mind blue PCB, but I do agree that matte black PCB is still the best looking. I wonder how the 3GB versions will perform? Quote
