could this really be true that the gtx 580 is in the works for a launch at the end of this year

Less than a week after the launch of the GTX 480, NVIDIA has announced that the next series of graphics (http://www.overclockersclub.com/news/26376/#) cards based on the Fermi architecture is already in the works - the 500 Series (http://www.overclockersclub.com/news/26376/). The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 will be the first to launch and will feature 580 CUDA cores to go along with its "580" moniker and have a whopping 2560MB of 384-bit GDDR5 memory. The rest of the specifications are unknown at this time, but NVIDIA is promising the fastest single-GPU card on the market.

could this be it

Nobody will be too shocked to hear NVIDIA expects its next flagship GPU to be the fastest that's ever been, but few will have guessed it'd also be one of the company's coolest and quietest. In the first public teasing of its next-gen graphics card (which is almost certain to bear the GeForce GTX 580 (http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/23/nvidia-lists-unannounced-gtx-580-graphics-card-on-its-page-quic/) name tag), NVIDIA has revealed a new vapor chamber cooling system, which reminds us of Shuttle (http://www.engadget.com/all/shuttle,xpc)'s ICE CPU cooler -- basically, water sealed within the chamber gets boiled by the hot elements (a copper plate in NVIDIA's case), which forces it to transfer heat away to the bits that are being cooled by the fan, where it chills out and recycles itself back to the boiling plate. The end result, according to NVIDIA, is about seven decibels less vroom relative to the GTX 480, along with lower operational temperatures. Besides that, the company's Tom Petersen also showed off an impressive tessellation demo and the first public display of Call of Duty: Black Ops gameplay, which was powered by this as yet unannounced GPU. Skip past the break to see it all on video.

They don't all take a year vacation after a new product launches. The GTX 500 series was probably in the works even before the GTX 400 series was on the market.

i wouldn't be surprised, especially the way in which they were releasing so many cards under the 400 banner.

all the tech sites so far have been saying it appears nvidias claim to have the fastest directx 11 card is on point. i am glad i didn't rush out and move up from the gtx 260 to the 460 or 480 as yet. looking forward to your feedback on the card when you get it.

I can't even max out my 465 yet. I must be doing something wrong.

Download a tree model from Evermotion, then scatter it a few hundred times in a scene...

Guess that was just hot air.

2.5 gig would've been sweet but looks like 1.5 is the final spec.

I need at least 2 gb of memory so I can find an excuse NOT to buy the Quadro 4000

Yeah, that is the biggest change that I am noticing - the original rumored specs were stating 2.5GBs of RAM, but all the actual shipping cards have "only" 1.5 GBs. Of course that this is the 1st round to cards, so who knows what's coming out in the weeks to come.

Still though, I would be interested in knowing what kind of scenes you guys are doing that are eating up that much RAM. Geometry itself tends to not be that high in memory requirements (after all, it's just mathematical coordinates), so are you guys using texture maps that are that high rez to use up all that memory??
Inquiring minds want to know.

Yea, textures.... MARI supports up to 32K. Not that I've actually used that high yet (or will be using THAT high), but I want to be covered in for my next GPU purchase.
