Uses less power, is cooler and performs better than the HD5970(Not all the time, but it does with its OC and that wasn't even watercooled yet). Where is IVI, I think its time you start recommending this card over the others ^_^

More expensive, cant do it yet ;)

Great card, but can't recommend something that doesn't have price/performance in check (which the 5970 could either until I started finding them for ~$400, and 480s even more at ~$300)

Lowest I found on the egg was $500, $440 with rebate....

But you must agree, Nvidia got it right with the GTX 580, they are going the right way anyways right? :)

Yeah definitely its a step in the right direction, I just always have a hard time liking the highest price card despite it having many positive qualities.
I often look harder than newegg ;)

It says "Up to 50% so they have seen 50% on some cards with the feature. To get 50 % with this card you would need a 390MHz overclock and I was able to get 180 stable but could get about 20mhz more for some lightly loaded benchs.

ccokeman-

Great article,, but i have a question about the power regulator. The 580 gets a new hardware fix for futurmark and whatnot and many have made a deal about it. I thought AMD had done this long ago.

http://www.geeks3d.c...rmark-and-occt/

This is the same thing just different wording, is it not?

Please fill me in if i am wrong.
