KFA2 GeForce GTX 580 Anarchy Edition SLI Review (1.536GB DDR5)

The KFA2 GeForce GTX 580 Anarchy Edition arrives in a traditionally coloured Nvidia box, featuring green and black artwork. KFA2 have opted for a ‘grunge style', spray paint box design which actually works really well.

The bundle contains a software disc, literature on the product, a quick install guide and a mini HDMI to HDMI converter cable. No SLI bridge cable is supplied, unfortunately.

The PCB is literally dwarfed by the three fan Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme Plus cooler – three 92mm fans take centerstage. The rear of the card looks fabulous, with a metal plate in position to help cool and protect the sensitive components. It is a three slot design.

The KFA2 GeForce GTX 580 Anarchy Edition is SLI capable, in 2, 3 or 4 way configurations. Just be sure to spend extra money for a high end power supply if you need more than one.

It requires an 8 pin and a 6 pin power connector to operate correctly.

The card has dual DVI out and a mini HDMI port.

Be sure to have a big enough chassis to handle these cards. The cooler can deal with 250watts of heat and is a 5 heatpipe construction, with 84 fins to help with heat dissipation. They are using a patented fan holder to remove buzzing and vibration based noises. The card is shipped with Arctic MX 4 thermal paste pre-applied.

A GPUz overview of the hardware. The KFA2 GTX580 cards are supplied at 772mhz core clock and 1002mhz from the 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory – this is connected via a 384 bit memory interface. There are 512 unified shaders onboard with 48 ROPS.
