Today we're looking at a handful of high-end graphics cards made specifically for enthusiasts that accept no compromises. These factory overclocked GeForce GTX 580 cards from Gigabyte, MSI, and ZOTAC, the GV-N580UD-15I, the N580GTX M2D15D5/OC, and Amp! ZT-50102-10P represent the most powerful single GPU boards currently available... Overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 Round-Up
I like the looks of the Gigabyte card myself.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Great review just wondering why no EVGA card thrown in the mix?
I ask cause I know they have been an exclusive Nvidia partner for many years.
I have always liked the Gigabyte UD video cards. That is why I have their 5870UD. They all overclock like a demon. Mine is more than fast enough that I won't be looking for a new card until at least next generation.
Smooth Creations LANShark "Blue Flame" + ASUS G73JH-A2 + ASUS EeePC S101HYes it's the original InfinityzeN
I also like the Gigabyte card, it would be my choice out of the three. And there's also the ASUS GTX580 DirectCU II which is an awesome card, and it adds a display port but its triple slot..woooot.

Well... was i the only one to think 3 fans > 1 fan any day? haha, doesnt matter even if its lower rpm. the fact that soo much air is moving all around. Its still impressive for g/b..... 20 degrees cooler.
I wonder if msi will release a frozr series for this series... i'd like to see how that would fare against the g/b then.
coolice:I wonder if msi will release a frozr series for this series...
Frozr has proven to be a superior design so far. Of course they'll release a 580 that's got the Frozr III cooler design. Buy it for me,.....

Most of these cards are provided by the manufacturers for HH to review. What was on hand was tested, I'm sure.
At least we got to see that Gigabyte card in action... Though we may never know if the PCB is stock or custom made.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
The Gigabyte UD cards all have custom PCB.
I like the Gigabyte card myself and it would certainly perform quite well for me for quite some time.Lot's of headroom and should be plenty cool enough .
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
EVGA is definitely missing in this lineup.
Man id love to see one of these puppies in my rig ;)
Hmm a couple of these bad boys running in the HH contest system which someone will be lucky enough to win before to long.
gigabytes just an all around good company! All products i have from them are exceptional and have had little or no problems... i guess im getting the n580UD now :)
yea ive always used gigabyte motherboard always reasonably priced and never let me down. Im a gigabyte fanboy what can I say I wish gigabyte would have overclocked like the other to but lol look at those fans im sure it runs real cool
