The nVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1536 MB PCIe Liquid Cooled Display Card from PNY is a powerful 3D display card for use with Windows computer systems. It boasts up to 30% cooler temperatures and 10% faster speeds than the reference designed GTX 580 card and is also up to 30% quieter than the original GTX 580. The card installs in an available PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot. It requires an empty adjacent slot to accommodate its double-width form factor, which is the same as that on the standard GTX 580, for easy installation in a wide variety of popular cases.
The card supports a number of advanced graphics technologies. It can handle games and applications that are written using the DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1 libraries with equal ease. It can be used with an optional nVIDIA 3D Vision kit to add true 3D support to your computing experience. If your system can support two of these cards you can take advantage of SLI technology, which effectively doubles 3D graphics performance by spreading the rendering workload across two GPUs.
The card's GPU also offers support for nVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technologies. CUDA allows compatible applications to leverage the card's powerful processor to aid in computations, which translates into a significant speed boost. The PhysX engine is used by games to simulate real-world physics. As this is handled by the GPU, it allows the computer's CPU to work on other aspects of gameplay -- which translates into smoother gameplay at higher resolution!
This PNY reference designed video card boasts a radiator fan that cools liquid coming from the card, as well as liquid cooling pipes that transfer the cooled liquid back to the card and others that transfer heat away from the card. The standard size 120 mm (4.7") radiator fits in a wide variety of popular cases. Experience your games like never before with extreme performance and high frame rate--without the heat!
