NVIDIA GTX 580 Presentation Video

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 580 has been previewed again with clues that the cooling will be as important as the performance. The official video below shows the “unreleased GPU” having vapor chamber cooling, which carries the heat away from the graphics chipset through constantly circling water that evaporates and condenses as it reaches the heat sinks. The design should run noticeably cooler and quieter than earlier cards, NVIDIA said.

The company also touted the unreleased hardware as the fastest DirectX 11-capable video chipset yet and used a handful of in-house demos as well as Call of Duty: Black Ops. The tests showed an extreme level of detail, not only rendering detailed undersea creatures but a city with two billion total polygons, many of which can be seen at any one time.

Many of the gains are due to boosting the number of processing cores from 448 to 512 and the higher 192GB per second of memory bandwidth. The GTX 580 is expected to ship in late November or early December.
