Second EVGA GTX 580... a bit different?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello, I recently RMA'd my first EVGA GTX 580 SC to newegg for replacement because of some problems i was having.

Anyway I just received my replacement GTX 580 and it seems to be a bit different. First off, the packaging on the first card was like an egg carton, while the second card came in a black foam box (identical packaging to the EVGA GTX 480).

The card itself has a different color PCB on the side edges - the first card had brown edges and this one has light green edges. The layout of the back of the PCB seems to be different as well, although im not 100% sure.

Finally the stock VID of this card is 1.062V in 3D mode, which is weird because my first GTX 580 SC and all others I have heard of have 1.082V.

Could this be some sort of revision?

Well, it might.
Or it can be a renewed card, or a different but similar model.

Is the card has the same clocks as the one you sent to RMA?

It could be newer or older than your other one, it could be refurbished, but as long as it works like a champ your good
