The Rumor Mill: Nvidia Officially Launching GTX 580 on November 9th?

Geforce GTX580 launch on 9th Nov, sampling now -

According to the rumor mill, with credits going to Fudzilla, there have been confirmed leaks detailing Nvidia's GTX 580. There's been talk that the card has been sent to journalists for sampling and it will sport the GF110 GPU. This time, all 512 CUDA cores will be enabled... but let's just see what happens on November 9th when Nvidia officially launches the card. It's speculated that the card will be clocked at 772MHz with 512 shaders and 2200MHz memory. Additional rumors have it being more efficient than the GTX 480, with a TDP of 244W as opposed to the GTX 480's 250W of typical load power.  Maybe it's just me, but it seems these "leaks" are a pre-emptive strategy geared towards getting enthusiasts excited about a product to hold off people from buying AMD's latest 6850/6870 release. We'll probably get some "leaked" rumors of the 6950/6970 specs soon after the official Nvidia announcement.

They still haven't announced it and they are releasing it in 5 days? Doubtful!

Yeah well that's Fudzilla for you. Fudzilla really needs an influx of brain cells, sooner rather than later too -.-

Yeah, my bad on the Fudzilla reference, but it's the same leak from various sources. I'm kinda new at the news editor thing.

NVIDIA has just got its shit together and was finally able to manufacture its GPU without any defects, with decent yields. Great!

They hit it out of the park with the GTX460 series cards, so maybe they DO have a superior product to release soon. I've heard it said that they have a new cooling design that works real well this time. I'm ready, show me,........
