1024MB GDDR5 Graphics Cards features 40nm chip process from TSMC, this
new process let SPARKLE GeForce GT240 1024MB GDDR5 Graphics Cards to
be the first batch graphics cards on market to adopt the NVIDIA new 40nm
graphics chip. Thanks to advanced 40nm process, now It features much higher
transistor density than before, bringing a greater number of stream processors
than its predecessor.

96 Processor Cores — Performance Upgrade
SPARKLE GeForce GT240 1024MB GDDR5 Graphics Cards now features 96
processor cores, 32 processor cores more than the GeForce 9600GT graphics
card has. The amount exaltation of the processor cores can brings amazing floating
point processing power for good gaming performance and powerful performance
ever from the unit area of the chip! According to the test done by SPARKLE, the 3D
Vantage High scores of the SPARKLE GeForce GT240 1024MB GDDR5
Graphics Cards is 20% more than the GeForce 9600GT reference boards.

1024MB GDDR5 Large-Capacity High Speed Video Memory
Today‘s game, such as 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 capacities of video memory.SPARKLE GeForce GT240
1024MB GDDR5 Graphics Card comes with incredible 1024MB GDDR5 video
memory which has higher bandwidth and working speed than the ordinary
GDDR3 video memory. Meet the needs of a large number of 3D games,
allowing the gamers to enjoy the pleasure brought by 3D games.

30dB Quiet Designed Cooling System with High Efficient
The SPARKLE GeForce GT240 1024MB GDDR5 Graphics Cards are equipped
with exquisitely made low-speed cooling fan with great noise control. Fan speed
to be controlled around 2700 Rpm to 3300 Rpm and it’s working 30dB
environment . The cooling fan uses high-density aluminum cooling fins with
0.5mm thick fins and 1.5mm pitch, which dramatically raise the heat dissipation
area and the thermal performance. Helped with the strong R&D team, SPARKLE
also extends the service life of the cooling fins by doing treatment on the fins‘
surface to prevent the oxidation.

All Solid Capacitors
Equipped all solid capacitors with lower power loss, provide more stable and
longer product lifespan.
