The world’s fastest GPU has arrived with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580. Experience blockbuster games like Call of Duty®: Black Ops and Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X® 2 in their full glory with everything cranked to the max. Not only does the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 rip through the latest games, it also runs quieter than the previous generation. And as you have come to expect from the GeForce GTX GPU, the GTX 580 packs support for all the premium GTX gaming technologies such as NVIDIA Surround, 3D Vision, PhysX and SLI. With all these features and more, it is easy to see how the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 obliterates the competition.

Instead of fans on its obverse side blowing air onto the PCB, there are three fans on its reverse side, drawing air from the aluminum fin array, and onto the PCB. The PCB also seems to be a non-reference design.

This is the final look for Frank this year – I am finally done. As you can tell much changed since the last video – namely the case itself, things that were black became red, and new things showed up. Modified EVGA GTX 580 covers and a custom made XFI PCB cover as well came into play as well as the new red floor mesh.

A talented team broke a new frequency record with an AMD FX processor : 8.429 GHz. In order to reach that frequency, the CPU was cooled with liquid helium. Congratulations !
