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

For this review we are using one of the fastest systems we have in our labs. The Intel Core i7 990x overclocked to 4.8ghz with 24GB of DDR3 memory, running at 1866mhz. This system is liquid cooled.

We test under real world conditions and don't focus at resolutions of just 2560×1600. We know only a very small portion (less than 1%) of the audience own a 30 inch screen.

All the latest BIOS updates and drivers are used during testing. We perform generally under real world conditions, meaning KitGuru tests games across five closely matched runs and then average out the results to get an accurate median figure. If we use scripted benchmarks, they are mentioned on the relevant page.

Some game descriptions are edited from Wikipedia.
