The next big graphics card from Nvidia, the Geforce GTX 580, will weigh in with a price point of £399.

Or that’s what one online retailer, YoYo Tech, has priced it up as a “web only” offer (as spotted by Softpedia). You can reserve your board now, although a release date isn’t specified yet.

The site also quotes the GTX 580 tech spec, with increased clock speeds and Nvidia’s new vapour chamber cooling technology allowing for tessellation processing to be cranked up more than 20% over the GTX 480.

The GTX 580 comes with 512 full CUDA cores, a 772MHz core speed, 1.5GB of 384-bit GDDR5 memory, and a 4Gbps data transfer rate.

It draws around 240 watts, so you’ll need a chunky PSU, and takes up two slots on your motherboard. However, it should run much quieter and more temperately than current high end Nvidia cards thanks to the vapour cooling.
