NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M SLI: specs and benchmarks
NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 580M SLI sales 6 January 2011. This is Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers.
Power consumption is at 100 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 17.96 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of GeForce GTX 580M SLI's architecture, market type and release date.
GeForce GTX 580M SLI's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of GeForce GTX 580M SLI's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on GeForce GTX 580M SLI's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Parameters of memory installed on GeForce GTX 580M SLI: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
APIs supported by GeForce GTX 580M SLI, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of GeForce GTX 580M SLI. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
3DMark 11 Performance GPU
3DMark 11 is an obsolete DirectX 11 benchmark by Futuremark. It used four tests based on two scenes, one being few submarines exploring the submerged wreck of a sunken ship, the other is an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. All the tests are heavy with volumetric lighting and tessellation, and despite being done in 1280x720 resolution, are relatively taxing. Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.
3DMark Vantage Performance
3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.
Let's see how good GeForce GTX 580M SLI is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 93% minimum and 79% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
Here are the average frames per second in a large set of popular games across different resolutions:
