(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
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.
- 2nd Generation PureVideo HD
High-definition video decoder and post-processor delivers unprecedented picture clarity,
smooth video and accurate color for movies and video.
- NVIDIA™ PhysX
GeForce GPU support for NVIDIA PhysX technology, enabling a totally new class of physical gaming
interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience with GeForce.
- NVIDIA™CUDA Technology
CUDA technology unlocks the power of the GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding
system tasks such as video transcoding delivering up to 7x performance over traditional CPUs.
