Built on the highly anticipated ATI RadeonTM HD 5800 Series GPUs which are based on 40nm process and advanced GDDR5 memory technology, these powerful new GPUs provide for a host of innovative new features including Microsoft DirectX® 11, ATI Eyefinity Technology, ATI Stream technology, Quad mode ATI CrossFireX™ multi-GPU support, UVD 2 and PowerPlay™, and offer an incredibly immersive HD gaming experience and unrivaled performance. The GIGABYTE GV-R587UD-1GD, GV-R585OC-1GD and GV-R583UD-1GD feature ATI’s latest 2nd Generation TeraScale graphics engine, boasting the power of more than 2 teraFLOPS with 1600, 1440 and 1120 stream processors respectively. With 1GB GDDR5 memory, the GV-R587UD-1GD, GV-R585OC-1GD and GV-R583UD-1GD provide twice the data per pin of GDDR3 memory at the same clock speeds. Benefiting from ATI Eyefinity Technology, every gamer can run up to 3 displays from a single graphics board and expand the field of view across all displays. End-users can enjoy the ultimate gaming experience with innovative “wrap around” multi-display capabilities with ATI Eyefinity Technology. Furthermore, using ATI Stream Technology, every user can easily unleash the massive parallel processing power of GPU for physics, artificial intelligence, stream computing and ray tracing calculations, and tackle demanding tasks like video transcoding with incredible speed.
In order to provide the best digital audio/ video interconnection between a computer and display monitor or home-theater system, the GIGABYTE GV-R587UD-1GD, GV-R585OC-1GD and GV-R583UD-1GD are capable of outputting DispalyPort signals. The new generation DisplayPort interface supports higher resolutions, richer color depth, and increased refresh rate performance, delivering 10.8Gbps of bandwidth over previous generations of connectivity options such as DVI, LVDS and VGA. The GIGABYTE GV-R587UD-1GD, GV-R585OC-1GD and GV-R583UD-1GD also provide advanced connectivity to TVs and displays with HDMI with 7.1 digital surround audio support. Delivering the ultimate solution for high definition home theaters, the GV-R587UD-1GD, GV-R585OC-1GD and GV-R583UD-1GD are able to take full advantage of Blu-ray functionality with dual-stream, picture in picture (PIP) capabilities and one-cable HDMI™ connectivity. Furthermore, the GIGABYTE GV-R5800 Series are equipped with ATI PowerPlay™ technology for breakthrough power and consumption, maximizing performance per watt by delivering the highest level of high performance when needed and conserving power when the demand on the GPU is low.
The GIGABYTE GV-R587UD-1GD, GV-R585OC-1GD and GV-R583UD-1GD feature GIGABYTE’s own Ultra Durable VGA Technology, which can provide outstanding overclocking capability, lower GPU temperature, and excellent power efficiency. GIGABYTE unique technology Ultra Durable VGA features 2 oz copper PCB board, Samsung and Hynix memory, Japanese solid capacitor, Ferrite /Metal Core Chokes, and Low RDS (on) MOSFET. Compared with traditional graphics accelerators, Ultra Durable VGA graphics accelerators can lower GPU temperature by 5%~10%, decrease power switching loss by 10%~30%, and increase overclocking capability by 10%~30%. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA graphics accelerator GV-R587UD-1GD, GV-R585OC-1GD and GV-R583UD-1GD can provide truly “high-performance” and “green” graphic card resolutions.
Anti-turbulence Inclined Dual Fan
The outstanding dual fan design doubles the cooling capability and offers extreme silent environment. GIGABYTE builds up an inclined cooling fan which helps heats can spread effectively from hot areas. 4 heat-pipes contribute to 13?cooler than reference fansink.
