Overclocking the ASUS GTX 580 Voltage Tweak Edition Comment Thread
 
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 Tweak Edition out for a run around the overclocking block....

Getting a message telling me I cannot access the article, just a heads up



Edit: Thanks Sky :thumb:

Card looks absolutely nuts...any idea on pricing/ when we might know the cost?

vohiep84 November 15, 2010 08:07 PM

Yeah,

Getting the same thing here.

:sad:

Sorry about that. :thumb:

That is just smexy. A 580 capable of reach 900+ mhz on the core? That's absolutely mind-blowing. If only I wasn't so broke... :(

Wow... now even more tempted to get one.

Thanks for the review.

nice.

tell me, brother sky, how would a manufacturer go about finding out you used a soft method to lift the juice ban on their board?

also, did you check the power consumption with said overclocks and limiter off? if you did, sorry to ask :p

speeds look good. good jobbe.

There are certain aspects of the design of modern GPUs which can't really be discussed at length. Such as the BIOS' ability to log certain settings and any modifiers applied.

I checked the power consumption in Furmark with the limiter off. It was higher. Past that, I see no relevance of testing with the limiter off since it did not affect performance or overclocking ability
