witch card maker are the most popular for the gtx580 ?
evga and asus are good ones
got an evga myself
EVGA are most popular, they were out of stock so I got an MSI.
i use gainward, i can`t select :3eyes:
i may be wrong, but iirc, none of the AIBs actually make the reference cards.
iirc, nvidia produce the cards and ship them off to AIBs. for reference models (as in the case of most of the gtx580s available at the moment), all the AIBs do is apply a sticker to the card, occasionally flash a modified bios to the card, and just ship it out.
only the non-reference cards are produced by AIBs.
this means that there is virtually no difference between the cards supplied by different AIBs in terms of quality. there will just be a normal variation is stability and overclockability.
some will argue that pre-OC'd chips are using better quality chips, but in the end, all manufacturers do is test it at the OC'd speed and verify that it is stable at that speed.
in the case of evga, if the gtx580 can handle 850mhz on the core, they'll use that card as a base for their hydro copper series. if it cant handle 850mhz, they'll just test it at 797mhz, and if its stable, they'll sell it as an SC card. if its not stable at 797mhz, they'll just sell it as a standard card.
I generally keep my GTX 580 OUT of the pool. It's got great graphics, but doesn't swim so well. Radeon's float much better then Geforce cards do.
More seriously, to answer the poll, I'd say EVGA is the most popular and the one I chose as well, though not because of popularity but because of a good record of buying with them and liking their stuffs.
Just go through the hwbot rankings, it's mostly ASUS and EVGA
Please pstlouis... correct that english. I'm ashamed by my people
it's better than my french!
Hey, man. It's all good. As long as it's a language thing and you're not really throwing GTX580's in the pool
those results are really interesting. EVGA is a winner ! sorry for others that had others brand, I was not able to have more options.
