ASUS ENGTX580 Review Index

5 – ASUS ENGTX580 OpenCL performances

For an overview of the OpenCL performances of the GeForce GTX 580, I used the benchmarking mode of GPU Caps Viewer (PRO version). See this article for more information about GPU Caps Viewer OpenCL tests.

    Great stuff indeed! Awesome test JegO! 😉

    Some minor mistakes at the parts where you mention Asus Smartdoctor and at 4.5 Direct X SDK.

    All this is tesselation is nice and cool, but the problem is that from all these benchmarks you can only actually play LP2 and Hawx and Hawx is running pretty nicely everywhere anyway.

    Personally I am having my eyes turned at the 570 or 69XX since the 580 is too expensive for my taste and I am aiming for SLI anyway since I am upgrading from 5850 crossfire and just one card wouldn’t cut it. I will be CPU limited anyway even with the 570s, as were a couple of the tests in this review.

    PS Aquamark FTW yay! 😀

    Excellent material in this review, but as mentioned by Psolord only two tests are playable games and we would like to see some more heavy game testing; IE. Crysis, Metro2033, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Supreme Commander 2 and so on.

    @Krian, @Psolord: I’ll try to improve my next review with some games. Thanks for the feedbacks!

    The thing is GTX 580 is the overall best video card ever made giving you an awesome experience of PhysX and DX 11 Tesselation

    All hail Nvidia

    mighting GTX 580

    ati can never overtake the GOD (Nvidia)

    In one word, I agree about the 580 being the best card right now. The problem is that it is still slower than the 5970 and that’s a one year old card, not to mention that it’s God awful expensive.

    Also there are solutions that are both cheaper and faster right now, like 6870 CFX or GTX 460 SLI.

    Now using expression like “all hail Nvidia” and such, quickly demotes you to the fanboy realm.

    the problem with real life gaming and benchmarks are really two different things Nvidia cards MIGHT SEEM be slower in a benchmark but what people Really need to remember is games as far back as i can rememeber even that crazy dos version of GTA is FRAME LIMITER when you play games all games are frame limited to 60fps MAX some are still on 30FPS a dvd is 25fps then you must remember ATI or AMD who ever you want to call them is does not work with every title some games need Physic’s or some other instruction that Nvidia can only do,Nvidia offer Compatabilitie
    with every game, every application,so that been said there are many games you will get better performance out of because they written the game for Nvidia in mine or they need instruction sets that only Nvidia cards have, the hardware fact is they last far longer then any ATI card I have a TNT card that still works I use that card in a media server as for ATI cards back then no chance.
