- 1GB 0.7ns Extreme Large and Fast GDDR3 Memory
Today‘s game, such as GTA IV, Crysis, Alone in the Dark 5, Stalker: clear sky, they normally use a
large number of bump texture, transparent texture to describe faces of characters and render realistic
gaming scenes, so these games put higher demands on the capacity and speed of video memory. The
current situation demands at least 512 MB video memory to run these games. Compared with ordinary
GeForce GTX 285 graphics cards on market, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 285 Plus Graphics Card
comes with incredible large and fast 1GB 0.7ns GDDR3 video memory, making gamers to experience
the hottest games at mind blowing frame rates.
- Unapproachable Cooling Solution
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 285 Plus Graphics Card is the world’s first graphics card to be equipped
with the Accelero Xtreme cooling solution from Arctic Cooling, which delivers ultimate cooling weapon
for hardcore gamers. The Accelero Xtreme features 5 heatpipes, 107 fins and 3 PWM fans. The radical
optimized air flow design is targeting to cool effectively up to 240 Watt heat dissipation. The Accelero
Xtreme can dramatically lower the temperature of the GPU at least 20º C lower than the stock cooler.
Together with the integrated memory and voltage regulator cooling, the Accelero Xtreme not only
enhances the overclocking potential but also extends the card’s service life. The three PWM fans from
Accelero Xtreme bring maximum air flow but operate extremely silence, thanks to the low noise
impellor design and the patented fan holder which eliminates the humming noise. The unnoticeable
operation of Accelero Xtreme brings you the unparallel non-disturbed gaming experience ever before.
