SPARKLE Unleashed Calibre P980X+ Graphics Cards With Dual Fly Fan And SPA Tune

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Taipei, Taiwan – November 20, 2008 – SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today announced the Calibre P980X+ Graphics Card. With elaborately

made Calibre Dual Fly Fan and convenient SPA Tune OC software, the Calibre P980X+ Graphics
Card makes DX10 gaming graphics beyond anything that’s ever been possible before on a
mainstream consumer computing platform.

  • 55nm Process
    Taking the performance increase into account, the Calibre P980X+ Graphics Card
    features 55nm chip process from TSMC, this new process let the Calibre P980X+
    Graphics Card to be one of the first batch of graphic cards on market to adopt the NVIDIA
    new 55nm graphics chip. Thanks to advanced 55nm process and overclocking out of
    box feature, now It has groundbreaking speeds compared with ordinary GeForce 9800 GTX
    + graphics cards on market, the core speed is raised from 738MHz to 761MHz, the shader
    clock is raised from 1836MHz to 1911MHz, these incredible speeds exaltation can brings
    amazing floating point processing power for unmatched gaming performance. The Calibre
    P980X+ Graphics Card features 512MB 1161MHz GDDR3 video memory, bringing the most
    compelling DirectX 10 visual experience the world has ever seen.

  • Extreme Cooling with Calibre Dual Fly Fan System
    The Calibre P980X+ Graphics Card features Calibre Dual Fly Fan System – an ultimate
    graphics cards cooling solution for the Calibre P980X+ Graphics Card users who seek
    higher graphics performance and lower working temperatures. The Calibre Dual Fly Fan
    System consists of copper die-casting thermal base, high-efficient heat pipes and dual
    cooling fans with 0.2 mm thin cooling fins. It can get the most heat exchange area in a
    limited space, guarantee a highly efficient cooling effect. Besides, the cooling fans of the
    Calibre Fly Cooling System can be adjusted aslant, so not only MOS circuit on the PCB
    can be cooled efficiently, the whole cooling efficiency can be raised too.

  • Convenient SPA Tune OC software
    The Calibre P980X+ Graphics Card is bundled with convenient SPA Tune, an exclusively
    designed OC software for users which will effectively balance the computing power and
    power consumption of the Calibre P980X+ Graphics Card. It provides three mode
    transition buttons for Overclocking mode (OC), standard mode (STD) and green mode
    (GRN). With the OC mode, SPA TUNE software will provide high speed, best
    performance and more power consumption. When users choose the OC MODE, graphics
    cards will runs at the fastest clock and keep the strongest performance to meet the needs
    of DX10 games. The STD mode brings standard performance and lesser power
    consumption. When users choose the STD mode, graphics card will runs at the standard
    clock ,whatever you open websites or enjoy the Blu-ray DVD or playing games it’s all
    OK!! The GRN mode provides the energy saving and green power consumption. When
    users choose the GRN mode, graphics cards will consume the least power. The cooling
    fan of the graphics card will has the lowest speed and has silence noise.
