How well can the GeForce GTX 580 run games
25 Mar 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 580 graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 580 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 580 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 580 graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 580? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 580? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, as it can run 870 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 166% increased graphics performance. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 108% better and can meet 724 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 580 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 580 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF110-375-A1 which has 16 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 772MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002Hz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 244W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 6-pin and one available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
GeForce GTX 580 competes with Radeon HD 6970 and proves to be around 10% faster.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 580 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
