The Release of Two 3D Graphics Cards from Sparkle Computer

Sparkle Computer, a Taiwanese supplier of graphics solutions and consumer electronics, has released two 3D graphics cards simultaneously. The two models have been codenamed Calibre X680 Captain and Calibre X670 Captain. Both cards are based on Nvidia GK104 GPUs developed under 28 nm standards. The chief peculiarity of the products is the integration of extraordinary cooler CoolPro; the uncommonness is seen in the localization of three fans that found their places under the radiator. This radiator is connected with the base, which is in direct touch with GPU, by means of six heat pipes.

Calibre X680 Captain and Calibre X670 Captain are equipped with DisplayPort, DVI, DVI-D, and HDMI video outputs. Graphics cards employ PCI Express 3.0 interface and support DirextX 11 interface, as well as, such Nvidia technologies as CUDA, PhysX, 3D Vision, and 3D Vision Surround. They are also notable for the availability of eight-phase voltage regulators and the enhanced depth of ground on the …
