Nvidia Corp. reportedly accidentally leaked its own plans to refresh its product lineup with GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. The new flagship product should start the refresh of the whole family that was confirmed by the company back in September at its GTC 2010 event.

The accidental confirmation came in the form of listing of the GeForce GTX 580 graphics board in the catalog of 3D Vision-compatible components. The leak was quickly removed, but screenshots of the page are available on various web-sites or forums (here, for example) at the moment.

Unfortunately, at the moment we know almost nothing about the GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. Semiaccurate web-site claims that the novelty is based on a new code-named GF110 graphics processing unit that has 512 stream processors along with other improvements. Given the fact that Nvidia already has experience with GF100 with 512 SPs and its costs, it is logical to expect Nvidia to maintain the number of stream processors and refine the design of the chip rather than to design a chip with higher amount of execution units.

Given the fact that Nvidia has already confirmed the refresh of the whole Fermi lineup in 2011, it is possible to expect chips with code-names like GF112, GF114, GF116 or something like this to transpire shortly.

It's also been mentioned 'GTX475' is GTX560 and is 'GF114'-based. The launch schedule floated sounds similar to what has been reported for a full GF104; end of the year or early next. While it may not be correct, it's not difficult to put 2+2 together.

It makes sense. Not only is it reminiscent of the 8800gt->9800gtx scenario (down to former positioning, die size and likely price), it allows nVIDIA to reposition their lineup. Surely a GTX460 1GB and full GF104 could be clocked compete with the 6800 series. The current 1GB essentially does compete with the 6850; it's not asinine that a full gf104 clocked at ~750mhz would do the same against 6870.

?ccidentally? LOL!!!! Accidentally..... at the same time with the introduction of 68X0 cards. Well.... Yes. Sure. ....Accidents happen!! LOL!!!

Oh .. so this is a web page not a plastic mockup like the last time Well, for nVIDIA's sake, I hope they'll be doing well, get better yields and be profitable. I wouldn't like them to end up like SiS Xabre or VIA S3 Graphics ... companies that weren't lacking in talent or ideas but in MONEY. So let's hope that nVIDIA's products will be good and bring them the money to continue developing. And, also, I'd like to congratulate them for differentiating themselves from the other in the market by orienting on GPGPU Computing & tessellation .

"accidentally". it only works with the parenthesis.
