Eagle-eyed readers over on the XtremeSystems forum have spied the appearance of NVIDIA's GTX 580 on the ASUS website.

The spec doesn't get me all that worked up. The 772MHz core, and 4,008MHz memory clock combined with 1,536MB of GDDR5 makes this more of a GF100 upgrade than anything else.

Oh, one more thing. And this does get me worked up, or more accurately, annoyed. That number, 4,799, that's ¥4,799CNY, which according to my calculator works out at around $720! That is a lot of dough! Even at $599 this card is going to face serious competition from AMD's 6800-series cards.
