GTX 580 mobile in the works

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Fastest mobile GPU ever
Introduction of Geforce GTX 560 mobile is not the last you've seen of the Geforce GTX 500 mobile series. Something has to replace the current king, GTX 485, and the new card is getting the GTX 580m name. Not a real surprise.

Our sources close to mobile computing industry are saying that the GPU will be the fastest GPU to date and that it can show some significant improvement over the existing GTX 485. Naturally if someone is crazy enough, and we know that people are, you will be able to put two of them together and get some absolutely amazing performance out of it.

It’s not surprise that you will need at least 17 inch notebook to put this quite hot GPU inside but this was always going to be the case. The TDP of a GTX 485M with 2GB of RAM goes up to 100W per card, so you can imagine that two would push it up to 200W TDP.

The new Geforce GTX 580 M should come this summer; this is the best timeframe we can provide at the moment.

And it will consume more than 100W per GPU. What a ridiculous strategy Nvidia seem to have. They must be panicking, after all their competitors wipe the floor with them in every single segment and metric.

200w?? WTF??? :o

OMG, That is way too much for a portable. What will happen to the poor battery and it's life?? Nvidia should seriously consider some new innovation, considering the rise of FUSION and SANDY. :-?

Somebody at nVidia really needs to put on their thinking cap, near 200W in a portable device is not going to be successful.
Not just because of the power required, but you're going to need a big chassis to dissipate that heat properly.

THis fills a need IF it has the ability to turn off the gpu if not needed and use internal sandybridge.

Laptops that have more than 200 W of TDP have been around for years. Just search up the Clevo D900C or the Clevo X7200. And yes, there is a market for these laptops, even if they blur the lines between desktop and laptop.

This is why I can't wait for the 28nm GPU's, I hope when they do use it, it will run cooler and more efficent and they wont cut and clock it to it's max causing it to over heat and have such a high TDP that you cant unplug the laptop.

who buys a laptop with sli 580's to game on battery power???

the new 560m laptops shut down the gpu when not needed.
