Oh those pesky Internet slip-ups. Someone at Nvidia decided to add the rumored GeForce GTX 580 on the list of graphics cards that supports the company's 3D Vision technology. Of course, the 580 hasn't been announced yet, but that didn't stop Geeks3D.com from spotting the leak, taking a screengrab, and immediately blogging about it.

Needless to say, the listing is now gone from Nvidia.com, but the leak confirms the speculation that the new card will be available soon and will be competing against AMD's forthcoming Radeon HD 6900 series of boards. The 580 is rumored to have 512 CUDA cores, 2GB of DDR5 memory, and 128 texture units, according to Fudzilla. It will supposedly be based on the new 40nm GF110 GPU, and like previous Fermi cards, should be a power-guzzling beast.

If nothing else, Nvidia should have something on the market competing with the Radeon HD 6900 cards, which should make for an interesting end of 2010. Frankly, there's a lot more going on with desktop graphics cards these days than there is with desktops themselves.
