Default NVIDIA Stops Production of GeForce GTX 580. - 04-14-2012, 15:28 | posts: 3,839 | Location: The Netherlands

NVIDIA reportedly stopped production of GeForce GTX 580 graphics cards. Launched in November, 2010, the GeForce GTX 580 had been the fastest single-GPU graphics card for an year, before AMD responded with Radeon HD 7900 series. With launch of the GeForce GTX 680, and volumes of 28 nm chip production at TSMC looking positive, GeForce GTX 580 served its purpose. NVIDIA can stop production and leave remaining inventories get gradually digested by the market. NVIDIA had already stopped production of GeForce GTX 590.

Sweet, now I can market mine as a "classic" or "collector's edition" and charge a substantial premium.

First $1500 takes it!

Just because nVidia tells TSMC to stop producing GF110 chips, doesn't mean eVGA is going to run out of cards anytime soon....

from a business standpoint it makes perfect sense because the production cost of the 680 (being 256bit) is far less. The inflated price it is now is only because its better than the 580.

Maybe if your 570 dies a year or two from now. My GTX 295 just died last month, and when I RMA'ed it, EVGA customer service told me that they would replace with a GTX 570. However, when they finally got my GTX 295, they tried for a week to get another GTX 295 in their used stock to test out just so they wouldn't have to send me a GTX 570 (They failed).

If your 570 dies in a year or two, they might send you a GTX 660, or 760, or whatever is equal, or greater performance....or they might just get an old GTX 570 or 580 to pass muster...

Not that I want it to fail but ya never know - that was the great thing about BFG that the 2 cards out of nearly 15 that I had from them that gave me problems I would send in and they upgraded each time over what I sent in. I even sent them in a 6800 GT and they returned me back a 7800GT - I called and said hey I'm running SLI with another and now I can't.. so they sent me a brand new 7800GT and said just return the other 6800GT i was using

100% wrong. Several review cards blew up due to voltage increases and it was a limited release. Now if you have proof to the contrary please present it now

Ive seen the 7's price cut, no point in a 680 now, as you can get a card with the same performance, 1gb more ram, for less, Nvidia will have to respond with a cut of their own, but that could be unlikely, seen as they are having yield problems, so can't make many.

Not trolling at all, just put GTX 590's blowing up in Google, and fill your boots, even has a link to a big thread on here about them going boom when you try to OC them.

It's not wrong bro. That's the whole reason why I went GTX 580 SLI at the time....

I was looking forward to the GTX 590 until people got a hold of them and they started blowing up.

Sure they were fine if you didn't OC them but, they were marginally slower than GTX 580 SLI, especially OC'd to 875 core which I ran mine at.

the first review samples blew up, that was all the hoopla, after that they put restrictions on voltage control, then they were like any card, mostly good and some rma, just like any card out there. the cards blowing up turned away a lot of people including me. the card got a weak pwm and add the voltage the rewiews were putting on them killed it

well you said ALL which blatantly isnt true. You know it and I know it so why post something that is a complete overexaggeration?

Yes we know you think amd is wonderfull and nvidia sucks but really you have to be that obvious?

Like most fanboys you'll pick up on any scraps and then use them/flame when you can.

Yeah I wouldnt have got one myself because I still dont think sli is without issues and yeah there were cases of these cards needing to be rma'd.

Am sure though there were plenty of peeps who got good cards. Although you dont see 2 many 590 owners around...

So all in all a bit of a fail card i reckon but try to be realistic, I do realise that's difficult for you through your warped amd specs

But still you need to take into account the die hard nvidia fans out there. Even if they were given a 7970 for free Im pretty sure they'd still swap it with a GTX 680.

Rich Guy, I will alert nvidia about the no point in getting a 680 now since you are obviously right. no point in making any more based on your well though out theory

No idea where you're getting the same performance part from, every review out there puts the 680 ahead of the 7970 by a good amount, except for Metro and AVP.
