Gainward has been in the graphics card business for a very long time and are famous for their Golden Sample series. Golden Sample cards come pre-overclocked but are still able to provide ample overclocking headroom, making them a hit with enthusiasts. Those who started getting their hands dirty building their own computers since the early 2000s would have heard of, or perhaps even used one of these cards.

These days, users are looking beyond raw performance; they want a card that is not only fast, but also cool-running and quiet. Gainward has taken that task to hand by introducing the Phantom series of graphics cards. And today, takes a look at the Phantom second card that they have launched - the Gainward GeForce GTX 580 Phantom 3072MB.

A quick run through of the specifications: the GeForce GTX 580 Phantom is clocked at just 783MHz for the graphics core, 1566MHz for the shader and 2010MHz for the memory. As a comparison, the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 operates at 772MHz, 1544MHz and 2000MHz for the core, shader and memory respectively.
