SPARKLE Announced Latest Addition To Its GeForce GTS 450 series Graphics Cards

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Taipei, Taiwan – October 29, 2010 – SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today announced latest addition with one slot cooling solution to its GeForce GTS 450 series graphics cards, fitting the mainstream users‘ lifestyle with compact design.


One Slot Cooling Solution
One of the World’s first GeForce GTS 450 graphics cards with one-slot cooling design
with 2 heatpipes with copper fins, meeting the mainstream users‘ requirement for
compact design. It use the premium 7010 centrifugal fan design featuring greater air
volume to take the heat away and lower the temperature rapidly. The cooling fan has the
speed modulation mechanism, so that the working noise will not be maintained at the full
speed level, and this mechanism can increase the fan’s life.

Advanced Rendering Architecture
Using NVIDIA’s next generation GF106 chip architecture. The SPARKLE GeForce GTS
450 Graphics Cards can dynamically allocates 3D processing power to geometry, vertex,
physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior
generation GPUs. Thanks to technologies such as NVIDIA Lumenex Engine, SPARKLE
GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards support DirectX 11, Shader Model 5.0, NVIDIA
Quantum Effects technology for physics computation and GigaThread Technology for
extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.

NVIDIA™CUDA Technology With 192 cores CUDA C/C++ Support and 32 Texture Units
CUDA technology unlocks the power of the SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards‘
192 processor cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks such as video
transcoding. The 32 Texture Units embedded in the GF106 can dramatically improve the
texture processing efficient in latest DirectX 11 games, resulting in higher fps than the
competitor’s products.

Dominate Next generation DirectX 11 Gaming
Tessellation- one of the biggest new features of Microsoft DirectX11, helps the
SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards to treat your eyes to incredible visual
details without sacrificing frame rates. With more geometry processing power, get
incredibly detailed characters, terrain and game environments – all with blazing fast
performance. The SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards aslo bring stunning
gaming effects with cutting-edge Microsoft DirectX 11 graphics and NVIDIA PhysX
technology take gaming to a new level.

Expect The Fastest Performance With Overclock Features
The SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards are overclocked out of box with
789MHz core speed, 3760MHz memory speed and 1579MHz shader clock. Compared
with ordinary GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards on market, SPARKLE slightly enhanced
the performance of the SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards for mainstream
gamers to enjoy better value for money.

1024MB GDDR5 Memory
The SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards provides incredible large 1024MB
GDDR5 video memory to mainstream gamers, to satisfy the rigorous need on the video
memory bandwidth, conquering today’s hottest DX11 game, such as Stalker: Call Of
Pripyat, Metro 2033, even to meet the requirement from 3DMark 11 launched this

Arm Yourself With NVIDIA 3D Vision Graphics Technology
The SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards equip you with the latest graphics
technologies including eye-popping NVIDIA 3D Vision, to breakthrough the boundaries
of your screen. Games, movies and photos enter a new visual dimension.

The SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards supports NVIDIA SLI technology,
which provides even higher frame rates and permits higher quality settings for the
ultimate experience in PC gaming when connected to a high-end, high-resolution

3nd Generation PureVideo HD
High-definition video decoder and post-processor delivers unprecedented picture clarity,
smooth video and accurate color for movies and video.

OpenGL 4.0 Optimization and Support
Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications.

Native HDMI 1.4a Support and Audio Input for HDMI
Fully integrated support for HDMI 1.4a including xvYCC, Deep color and 7.1 digital
surround sound. High-definition audio transmission can be realized without spdif wiring.

The SPARKLE GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Cards Comes with 3 free Applications Bundled.
MAGIX Video Easy, which is the first video editing program for the
whole family. It’s so easy to use that even beginners without any prior
skills will be able to design breathtaking videos in just a short time.
Transform recordings of family celebrations, vacations, or special events
into video DVDs or present your videos on the Internet with ease.
SPARKLE GTS 450 also offer Supersonic Sled and Design Garage,2
new, exciting NVIDIA applications which showcase how GeForce and
these new products are driving the future of gaming.
Supersonic Sled is a timed race game involving a rocket-driven sled on a
6-mile track. It provides a compelling and interactive showcase of DX11
Tessellation, PhysX, CUDA particles, and fluid simulation. Design Garage
is new, exciting demonstration of ray tracing technology. Interact with the
most exclusive vehicles on the road and create incredibly photo-realistic
images. Harness every last bit of GF106 compute power using CUDA
accelerated ray tracing.
With these two applications, SPARKLE wants to literally give consumers
the keys to the new GF106 architecture. To expose and showcase the
new level of interactivity and realism that this architecture enables.
Applications so compelling that consumers will spend hours playing with.
