Gigabyte GTX580 Super Overclock Review

Unigine Heaven 2.1

Unigine Heaven has been producing some curious results for a while now. We aren't sure if the way it calculated scores uses some tricks that have been patched out of both the ATI and nVidia drivers, but nothing we've tested recently has given us results close to those we first obtained. So it's with wide-eyes that we see the Gigabyte SOC is still capable of producing frame-rates higher than the original reference tests. The overclock definitely brings results too of 6 and 3 FPS improvement over the stock GTX580 SOC.

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
