The fastest graphic card of the era, NVIDIA GTX 580 has been officially launched by NVIDIA. This new card is 100% compatible with DirectX11, about 30% faster than its predecessor GTX 480, have 512 CUDA cores, 16 PolyMorph engines and support triple-display or stereoscopic 3D display.
The GPU is also reported to have a vapor chamber thermal solution to cool down the beast without creating much noise from the cooling system (fans). Of course, such a high-end graphic card will cost at a rather high price mark if you want one. The lowest price that we have found is haunting at the level of $500+. The highest price is the EVGA branded version and the second highest is one pictured above.
