Cebit 2011: Water cooled GTX 580 set at 873MHz
Point of View and its TGT Tuning team, led by no one other than Mr. Wolfram Tismer, used an opportunity at Cebit to launch its latest and fastest ever GTX 580 Beast2 card with water cooling.

The new POV/TGT GTX 580 Beast2 is the creme of the crop and it simply can't get better than this with the GTX 580 GPU. It features a 9mm full-cover copper waterblock made by Aqua Computer that keeps the GPU well cooled while ticking at 873MHz for the GPU, 1746MHz for shaders and 4104MHz for 1536MB of GDDR5 memory. Of course, the card has 512 CUDA cores and a 384-bit memory interface.

The backplate features two DVI and mini HDMI outputs and the card supports SLI, in case someone wants to go for multi-GPU setup. The card should already be in the stores and the suggested price is set at €799. In case this sounds a bit steep for you, you can always go for the original water cooled GTX 580 Beast that sells for €729.
