Palit and parent company Gainward release GeForce GTX 580s with 3GB of graphics memory

What happens in Gainward, stays in Palit. Gainward's parent company, Palit, is also readying a GeForce GTX 580 graphics card with 3 GB memory, like its subsidiary. Featuring a non-reference PCB and cooling assembly, Palit's latest card uses twelve 2 Gbit GDDR5 memory chips over a 384-bit wide memory interface to achieve 3072 MB (3 GB) in total. It features a more traditional-looking cooler compared to the Gainward GTX 580 Phantom; which makes use of two fans to cool a large aluminum fin array. Palit's card is clocked at 783 MHz (core), 1566 MHz (CUDA cores), and 1005/4020 MHz (memory actual/effective). Based on the 40 nm GF110 core, the GTX 580 features 512 CUDA cores, and is compliant with the latest in consumer graphics technologies.
