The Vapor Chamber Cooling Design
Implemented cooling solution based on Vapor Chamber Technology, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card runs not only cooler but also much quieter and provides more headroom for users to explore performance tweaking ! Vapor Chamber Technology is based on the same principles as heatpipe technology. A liquid coolant is vaporized at a hot surface, the resulting vapor is condensed at a cold surface then the liquid is returned to the hot surface. The recirculation process is controlled by a wick system. The coolant is water – but because the chamber is evacuated to a very low pressure, the vaporization process occurs at a much lower temperature than normal boiling point. The complex wick arrangement inside the module controls the flow of water and water vapor so that the system can be used in any orientation. The GeForce GTX 580 GPU heats Vaporization Wicks. Working fluid, pure water, is easily vaporized due to the extreme low pressure (<104 Tor or less). Water vapor moves easily through the vacuum until it meets the condensing wick - adjacent to the cooled surface - and turns back to a liquid state. The liquid is then absorbed by the Transportation Wick by capillary action and moved back towards the Vaporization Wick. The Vapor Chamber Cooling Design of the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card is much more efficient than a copper heatsink at carrying away the heat because the whole area effectively transfers heat at the same rate.

The Next Generation Gaming Architecture
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card brings a host of the next generation of gaming calculation - GF110 never before offered for the PC -- including tessellation, DirectCompute and all other DirectX 11 hardware features. GF110 architecture is specifically designed to support next generation gaming effects such as raytracing, order-independent transparency, and fluid simulations. By using GF110 architecture, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card gets a tremendous boost in DX11 game performance and image quality, and brings film-like
game characters and objects to users. GF110 architecture also enhances PhysX simulations with tremendous speed upgrade. In addition, GPU computing now can be put in practice in latest DX11 games for improve DX11 gaming efficiency.

Ray Tracing Support: The Future Of Gaming
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card enables interactive ray tracing for ultra photo-realistic scenes. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card powers interactive raytracing, bringing spectacular, photo-realistic renderings to your screen for the first time. By using the power of the GF110 GPUs, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card supports recursion in hardware, enabling efficient ray tracing and a host of other graphics algorithms. It excels not just at standard ray tracing, but also at advanced global illumination algorithms such as path tracing.

32x Anti-aliasing technology
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card implements a brand new 32x anti-aliasing mode for higher levels of image quality. And the GeForce GTX 580's enhanced compression engine maintains incredible performance with anti-aliasing and resolution cranked up, providing both high frame rates and top notch image quality.

Tessellation Brings Incredible Detailed Gaming Visuals
Experience an unprecedented level of detail and realism in the latest games. Tessellation- one of the biggest new features of Microsoft DirectX11- helps developers create more detailed characters and terrain in games, bringing you sharper, crisper images and a more realistic experience. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card delivers up to two times the tessellation performance compared to GeForce GTX 480, bringing your games closer to reality without sacrificing the high frame rates you enjoy, letting mainstream gamers to experience an unprecedented level of detail and realism in the latest games, such as Lost Planet 2, AVP etc.

Total Immersive With NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround Technology
Prepare to be blown away by the most immersive PC gaming experience imaginable. Leveraging the power of multiple GF110 GPUs in an NVIDIA SLI configuration, NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround enables a new level of eye-popping 3D stereo gaming, expanding your real estate across 3 panels for the ultimate “inside the game” feeling. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card provides the incredible graphics horsepower to run your game in 3D stereo, across 3 panels, at HD resolutions up to 5760x1080. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card aslo supports gaming across three non-3D displays with resolutions up to 2560x1600,it's the best in Class 2D Surround Gaming.

NVIDIA™CUDA Technology With 512 cores CUDA C/C++ Support
CUDA technology unlocks the power of the GF00's 512 processor cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks such as video transcoding delivering up to 7x performance over traditional CPUs.

Stunning DX11 Gaming Performance
Packing in 512 CUDA cores, a high speed GDDR5 memory interface, and full DirectX 11 support, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card is designed for groundbreaking graphics performance. With a revolutionary new scalable geometry pipeline and enhanced anti-aliasing capabilities, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card is the world’s most powerful single GPU Graphics Card solution, delivering up to two times faster performance than previous GTX 480 single GPU solution.

1536MB Incredible Large High Speed GDDR5 Video Memory
Today‘s DX11 game, such as Stalker: Call Of Pripyat, Metro 2033, they insanely use as large as possible number of bump texture, transparent texture to describe faces of characters and render realistic gaming scenes, so these DX11 games put rigorous demands on the bandwidth and capacities of video memory. The current situation demands at least 1GB video memory to run these games. Compared with high-end graphics cards on market with 1GB GDDR5 video memory, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card comes with incredible large 1536MB high speed GDDR5 video memory, meeting the rigorous demands from current DX11 games.

3-Way SLI Support
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card supports NVIDIA 3-way SLI technology, which provides even higher frame rates and permits higher quality settings for the ultimate experience in PC gaming when connected to a high-end, high-resolution monitor.
