ASUS GTX580 sets new world records - says Hasta La Vista to previous record

Thought your 3DMark score was good enough? Well, don't read on further dear reader.

 

ASUS are proud to announce a new world record in Futuremark's 3DMark Vantage. Featuring ASUS' innovative hardware designs and the skill of top overclocker NickShih, the combination of the ROG Rampage III Extreme motherboard, Intel's Flagship 980X processor and Voltage Tweaked GTX580 in SLI broke the 70K barrier with a score of 71,167**. This world record continues to show why ASUS is the 1 choice for overclockers and gamers those looking for the absolute best in performance.

Using things found around the house (may or may not be true) he overclocked the ASUS GTX580's from their stock 782MHz clock speeds to a pretty insane 1099MHz using LN2 (the stuff that ripped the T1000 into little pieces in Terminator 2).

Supposedly - 28nm AMD chips will be hitting the shelves in 2H 2011, otherwise known as Southern Islands - TMSC is still needing to tape out 28nm (which it hasn't so far) and even if they did, production won't be ready until the second half of next year.

Sources say AMD HD 6970 will beat NV GTX 580

I don't think that any of us will be surprised that "sources" are saying that the AMD HD 6970 will beat the new NVIDIA GTX 580 in performance. What else would AMD say after all? It's not as if they can say, "our next card will suck." I like it when these two companies get to goading and competing with each other for the performance crown, and so should you.

Competition like this is when we get new cards with even more performance as they trade the world's fastest title back and forth. The only downside is that the new cards seem to get more expensive each time they launch. The upside is a new faster card means price cuts on older hardware. Kit Guru cites sources that claim the HD 6970.

AMD Radeon 6970 delay due to component shortage

Many AMD partners are wondering why they have not gotten AMD Radeon 6970 boards yet - but, it seems to stem from a shortage of a particular component from Texas Instruments, and now the yield issues that people are running around crying about.

This Texas Instruments component is an integrated driver-MOSFET (DrMOS) that was first introduced and used on the AMD Radeon 6800 series. The part is SO new that there is literally no information on the web about it, nor from the manufacturer itself.

NVIDIA third quarter analysis

KitGuru have an analysis of NVIDIA's stock market performance, the results are a good read.

 

news/1/7/17500_217.jpg

 

A bit of a tease, shows that NVIDIA were once rolling in $1 billion revenue a quarter, which has seen a steady decline because of the 4xx series lacklustre performance. But, with the 460 banging the drums of success and the GTX580 now out - is this a turn for the better for NVIDIA?
