NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 580 sales 9 November 2010 at a recommended price of $499. This is Fermi 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 192.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-Slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 10.5" (267 mm) (26.7 cm). One 6-pin and One 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 244 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 18.01 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.
