Taipei, Taiwan – December 7, 2010 – SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today presents The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Cards, the DirectX 11 monsters for high-end market.
Ultimate Cooling Solution — Designed for Quieter Gaming
SPARKLE introduces the Vapor Chamber cooling solution for The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Cards, the same cooling solution used on the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. Based on Vapor Chamber Technology, The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Cards runs not only cooler but also much quieter and it provides more headroom for users to explore performance tweaking ! Vapor Chamber Technology is based on the same principles as heatpipe technology. A liquid coolant is vaporized at a hot surface, the resulting vapor is condensed at a cold surface then the liquid is returned to the hot surface. The recirculation process is controlled by a wick system. The coolant is water – but because the chamber is evacuated to a very low pressure, the vaporization process occurs at a much lower temperature than normal boiling point. The complex wick arrangement inside the module controls the flow of water and water vapour so that the system can be used in any orientation. The GeForce GTX 570 GPU heats Vaporization Wicks. Working fluid, pure water, is easily vaporized due to the extreme low pressure (<104 Tor or less). Water vapor moves easily through the vacuum until it meets the condensing wick - adjacent to the cooled surface - and turns back to a liquid state. The liquid is then absorbed by the Transportation Wick by capillary action and moved back towards the Vaporization Wick. The Vapor Chamber cooling design of The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Cards is much more efficient than a copper heatsink at carrying away the heat because the whole area effectively transfers heat at the same rate. Built from GTX580 DNA
Built from the same DNA as the GeForce GTX580 incorporates all the enhancements found in its more powerful sibling. To improve performance/watt, SPARKLE GTX570 Graphics cards were re-engineered down to the transistor level. To increase the GPU’s power efficiency, a very large percentage of transistors on the chip were modified. Meanwhile, to improve performance ,SPARKLE GTX570 Graphics cards support full-speed FP16 texture filtering and boast improved Z-culling. In addition to these clock-for-clock improvements, SPARKLE GTX570 Graphics cards have more CUDA cores, texture units, and SMs than their predecessors and run at higher clocks. As a result of these improvements, the SPARKLE GTX570 Graphics cards runs 14% faster on average than GTX480 in our testing.
Driving Gaming Performance to the Max With OC Version
Thanks to the the Vapor Chamber cooling solution, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 OC Graphic Card enables extreme overclocking. This offers opportunities for enthusiasts and anyone intent on more hardcore applications to tap their full, powerful potential. Compared to reference GeForce GTX 570 graphics cards on market, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 OC Graphics Card is overclocked out of box, it boosts the core, shader and memory clocks significantly to 752MHz, 3996MHz and 1504MHz, providing up to 6.5 percent faster overall performance compare to reference, bring incredible performance in the latest DX11 games including Dirt 2, Stalker:OCP, Alien VS. Predator, Metro 2033 and so on.
New Power Monitoring Hardware
SPARKLE GeForce GTX570 Graphics Cards features new Power monitoring hardware. Dedicated hardware circuitry on the graphics card performs real-time monitoring of current and voltage on each 12V rail(6-pin,and the PCI-Express edge connector) .The driver monitors these power levels,and will dynamically adjust performance in certain stress applications such as Furmark and OCCT if power levels exceed the card’s spec. This feature helps to protect the graphics card and system from issues caused by excessive power draw .And will not affect end users when gaming, even when the GTX570 graphics card is overclocked.
Highest Tessellation Power Brings Incredibly Detailed Visuals
While tessellation has mostly been used in films. With the introduction of DirectX 11 and NVIDIA’s GF110, developers will be able to harness these powerful techniques for gaming applications. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Cards were designed from the ground up to deliver the industry’s most potent tessellation performance, which is the key component of Microsoft’s DirectX 11 development platform for PC games. Tessellation allows game developers to take advantage of the GeForce GTX 570 GPU’s ability to increase the geometric complexity of models and characters to enables incredibly detailed game characters and terrain with blazing performance in latest DX11 titles, such as Dirt 2, Stalker:OCP, Alien VS. Predator, Metro 2033 and so on.
Ray Tracing Support: The Future Of Gaming
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Cards enable interactive ray tracing for ultra photo-realistic scenes. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Cards power interactive raytracing, bringing spectacular, photo-realistic renderings to your screen for the first time.
