ASUS GeForce GTX 580 Matrix Platinum 1.5GB Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
PC Perspective 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:
"ASUS may have perfected the GeForce GTX 580 with the Republic of Gamers Matrix GTX 580 by combining a customer designed board, power system and cooler that sets it above the rest of the cards we have tested in house. The only downside to this card is the slower than expected default clock speeds that come dangerously close to the reference cards that may turn off potential buyers. For any enthusiast looking at a ~$500 GPU though, overclocking, even with basic tools like the included GPUTweak software, is a must and I think the Matrix GTX 580 offers up one of the best environments to get the most from the Fermi GPU."
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.
