Gainward GTX 580 Golden Sample Tested

Review: Factory overclocked

Gainward was never the one to stop at reference cards and its GTX 580 offer includes the company’s factory overclocked GTX 580 Golden Sample. We’re talking about a card based on GF110, currently the fastest GPU on the market. Our today’s guest, Geforce GTX 580 1536MB GDDR5 Golden Sample boasts 805MHz for the GPU, 1610MHz for the shaders and 1050MHz for the memory (4200MHz effectively). Apart from the clocks the card has retained the main features from the reference card – cooling, two dual-link DVIs, one miniHDMI and of course 1536MB of GDDR5 memory.

As you can see, the factory overclock isn’t very high as the reference values are 772MHz GPU and 1002MHz memory (4008MHz effectively). The overclock brought about a slight performance increase and, as is usual with overclocked cards, it comes with a higher price tag as well.
