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.

Some really great temperatures, but from what I've read on other sources, the fan does not sufficiently cool the other parts of the card. Did you encounter this problem?Quote

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

I can't see why people on the YT vid are saying this is useless? More surface area = better cooling = silence. I would love to get my hands on one of these if i had the money.Quote

nice card - nice benches

but.....

some people are going to have a nightmare with this card

those who:



  • had a large cpu cooler (D14, etc) in the case (especially when in a mid-tower)

  • have another sealed-WC solution in their case



i have also noticed SLI - two, or more, of these in SLI !!! Hmmm? not going to work !!!Quote
