ASUS GeForce GTX 580 Matrix Platinum Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have posted a review of the brand new ASUS GeForce GTX 580 Matrix Platinum graphics card, which features a huge triple-slot custom cooler and overclocked specifications.
Here's what they had to say:
"Parts of this conclusion may have sounded a bit harsh but make no mistake about it: for only 30 bones more than the reference edition, the Matrix Platinum is well worth your money. Wed even go so far as to say that ASUS has pretty much rendered most other GTX 580 cards obsolete due to this cards cost proximity to standard versions.
Regardless of its inclusion of features which may be inaccessible to most gamers, this is currently one of the best cards on the market. Why? Because it allows for the best of both worlds: the increased clock speeds and air cooling overclocking headroom gamers want alongside features that professional overclockers will take full advantage of. If anything, the Matrix gives both sides of the high end market something to play with at a fair asking price and that makes it worthy of our full stable of awards."
This new Matrix Platinum model is definitely one of the best GeForce GTX 580's on the market, right along side the equally excellent MSI Lightning model.
