EVGA Ready with GeForce GTX 580 Classified Graphics Card

EVGA Ready with GeForce GTX 580 Classified Graphics Card

In the wake of ASUS’ ROG MATRIX GeForce GTX 580 and MSI N580GTX Lightning, EVGA is ready with its own enthusiast-grade GeForce GTX 580 designed for extreme overclocking. The EVGA GTX 580 Classified combines a strong electrical circuitry with powerful air-cooling and a feature-set designed for overclockers. To begin with, the card uses a tall PCB that draws power from one 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI-E power connectors.

The card uses a strong VRM circuitry that consists of solid-state chokes (which can’t whine), direct-FETs (low RDS), and proadlizers (better power conditioning). The power connectors are fused to prevent surges from damaging anything, there are consolidated voltage measurement points, LEDs are used to indicate power status of each power domain (NVVDD, FBVDD, and PEXVDD). The card also features two BIOS ROMs that are selectable by a switch. One stores an overclocked profile, and the other stores a failsafe reference speed profile.

The card is cooled by a large air-cooler that covers the entire area of the PCB. It looks to have the same principle as the NVIDIA reference cooler, of a dense heatsink over most of the hot parts of the PCB, probably uses vapor-chamber technology. The heatsink features air channels which are ventilated by the blower. This card looks to have a larger blower than the one on the NVIDIA reference cooler. More details are awaited.
