This is an auto-generated long summary of ASUS ENGTX580/2DI/1536MD5 GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB GDDR5 based on the first three specs of the first five spec groups.
Graphics processor family *
The category to which the graphics processor (GPU) belongs e.g. Southern Islands family of Radeon processors (made by AMD), GeForce 600 (made by NVIDIA).
Graphics processor *
Also known as a graphics processing unit (GPU), this is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics.
GeForce GTX 580
Maximum resolution *
The maximum number of pixels that can be displayed in the image. It is usually quoted as width × height,: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels.
2560 x 1600 pixels
CUDA (aka Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel computing platform and programming model created by NVIDIA and implemented by the graphics processing units (GPUs) that they produce. CUDA gives program developers direct access to the virtual instruction set and memory of the parallel computational elements in CUDA GPUs.
Processor frequency *
The clock rate is the fundamental rate in cycles per second (measured in hertz) at which a computer performs its most basic operations such as adding two numbers. There are more factors, like internal memory size, that influence a computer's actual response time.
1564 MHz
Graphics adapter RAMDAC
400 MHz
Discrete graphics adapter memory *
1.5 GB
Graphics adapter memory type *
The type of memory used by the video card. Often a combination of dedicated memory (Video RAM or VRAM) and dynamic system memory is used. UMA stands for Unified Memory Architecture, and is a computer memory architecture that allows the graphics processing unit to share system memory. Other abreviations: RAM = Random Access Memory, SDRAM = synchronous dynamic RAM, DDR = double-data-rate.
Memory bus *
Hardware and software that connects the main memory to the memory controller in computer systems. Originally, general-purpose buses like VMEbus and the S-100 bus were used, but to reduce latency, modern memory buses are designed to connect directly to DRAM chips, and thus are designed by chip standards bodies such as JEDEC.
384 bit
Memory clock speed
The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.
4008 MHz
Ports & interfaces
Interface type *
PCI Express 2.0
HDMI ports quantity *
The number of sockets (ports) for HDMI connections. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed video data and compressed/uncompressed digital audio data from a HDMI-compliant device ("the source device") to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device. HDMI is a digital replacement for existing analog video standards.
DVI-I ports quantity *
This is the amount of DVI-I interfaces. Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface developed by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG). The digital interface is used to connect a video source to a display device, such as a computer monitor. DVI-I is DVI integrated, which means it can support digital and analog.
TV tuner integrated *
Device has an in-built TV tuner.
PhysX *
PPU (microprocessor) expansion card designed by Ageia to accelerate PhysX-enabled video games.
DirectX version *
DirectX is a collection of APIs (application programming interfaces) for easily handling tasks related to game programming on the Microsoft Windows operating system.
Dual Link DVI *
A dual-link DVI interface sends data over both of the DVI links to the monitor, and this is how higher resolutions are achieved. With dual-link DVI, a resolution of 2048 x 1536 is possible.
High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of digital copy protection to prevent copying of digital audio and video content as it travels across connections.
Cooling type *
The method used to cool the device or to cool the air around the device.
Other features
Mac compatibility
Product can be used with Apple Mac software and/or hardware.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed video data and compressed/uncompressed digital audio data from a HDMI-compliant device ("the source device") to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device.

Product Code: ENGTX580/2DI/1536MD5 The Asus GeForce GTX 580 is the graphics card that the GTX 480 could have been. It's still based on the Fermi architecture, and doesn't add any particularly eye-catching new features, but it brings a tangible amount...
Bottom line Priced competitively at £399 and friendly to overclockers, the Asus GeForce GTX 580 is an obvious choice for those building a new gaming machine. If you've already got a high-end gaming machine, with a graphics card of the class of a GeForce GTX 480 o...
Introduced just two short weeks ago, the GTX 580 from NVIDIA gave us what we had been waiting for since November 2009 — a Fermi-based graphics solution that was not a cut-down version of the architecture. We finally got the fully functional version wi...

Bottom line When you look at the performance delivered by the ASUS GTX 580 when run in its stock configuration, the numbers compare with the those of the reference GTX 580 with some increases here and there across the testing suite. The 10MHz improvement in base...
In our original review of the GTX 580, we found it to be a ready and willing overclocker which we could push quite far above its reference clock speeds. To explore the limits of these cards a bit further, in this article we take the ASUS Voltage Twea...
Bottom line Maniacal Performance for the PeopleIn its stock form the GTX 580 is already a hugely powerful video card but when you add overclocking to the equation, the results are simply mind blowing. The performance increases we achieved led to significant frame...
£418-£459.99Looking back over the past year, Nvidia have had a tough ride. Firstly, they were late with the release of their high end GPU, resulting in AMD taking the golden opportunity to grab some much needed market share, and secondly their Fermi a...
Bottom line Evaluating Nvidia’s GTX580 is fairly straightforward. It’s without a doubt the best single GPU graphics card available on the market. The only real competition would be from AMD HD5970, which unfortunately we didn’t have on test. However, given that t...
With the ENGTX580, ASUS sends its first GTX580 based card into the ring to fight for the performance crown. The starting position should definitely be a good one and were therefore very curious about the results which will be achieved in our tests. Fur...
