Today we have another GeForce GTS 450 video card on the test bench. As we said in our previous GeForce GTS 450 video card review the GTS 450 is NVIDIA’s lowest end DirectX 11 card, and it’s $100-$129 price tag reflects that. These cards might not be the most powerful cards out there, but they will not break your wallet so if you are a gamer on a budget this may be the card for you. Also this card can make a perfect dedicated PhysX card. Let’s take a look at the GeForce GTS 450 from Sparkle and see how it performs compared to the competition.
With the release of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 580 a couple of weeks ago the GTX 480 is no longer the top of the line card offered from NVIDIA, but there are still quite a few different GTX 480’s available and many of the GTX 580’s are still the reference build. Today we will be looking at the Calibre X480 from Sparkle, which is a GeForce GTX 480 video card that is slightly factory overclocked at 752MHz core (700MHz stock), 1536MB GDDR5 clocked at 3800MHz (3696MHz stock) and 1504MHz shaders (1401MHz stock). This card is also cooled by the Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme VGA cooler to provide you with the best cooling solution possible. Let’s take a look…
We are back with another contest! This times our friends at Sparkle were nice enough to provide us with 5 GeForce GT 240 video cards, that’s right 5! This contest will run like most of our other contests, but this time there are even less steps to follow! Read on for more information about this contest and how to get yourself a new video card!
Our friends at Sparkle Computer, manufacturer of some of the best non-reference geForce graphics cards in the industry, has recently gone into the power supply business, and have released their Gold Class series of power supplies. All of these PSUs are modular and 80Plus Gold certified. Today I will be looking at Sparkle Computer’s Gold Class 850 watt power supply, which is not only 80Plus Gold and modular, it sports a full five +12v rails. Read on to check out the Sparkle Computer Gold Class 850!
Taiwan-based Sparkle Computer Corporation has been around since 1982, most notably producing high quality graphics cards using the PCI interface, in addition to modern PCI-Express cards. However, it hopes to enter the power supply market with its new Gold Class series. These units are manufactured by Great Wall computer and sold by Sparkle as a part of its gaming brand. There is a 1000W version and a 1250W version. ThinkComputers takes a look at this mostly modular, six 12V railed, 80PLUS Gold-certified unit in this review.
The largest use for mainstream video cards is to add some graphics “oomph” to that off-the-shelf Dell, HP, Compaq, or whatever. With a CPU and integrated graphics designed to “just get by”, the mainstream video card adds extra power and life to the compromised graphics of the “store bought” rig. In the past I have reviewed several ATI mainstream cards, but I haven’t had the opportunity try an nVidia mainstream card. Today I will be looking at Sparkle’s brand new geForce mainstream card. Though the geForce 210 has been around for a while, Sparkle has just released this new model with a full gig of memory, to free up that system memory that is normally taken by the integrated graphics. Read on to check out the Sparkle GeForce 210 1GB video card.
Today I will be looking at a GTX 260 by Sparkle, the GTX 260 Plus. This isn’t your typical GTX 260, as it sports 1792 megs of memory. I reviewed a couple of Radeon HD 4870 X2s that each had two gigs of memory, but they were actually two 4870s with 1GB of memory per GPU. This is a single GPU with not much less than two gigs for itself. Will this massive amount of graphics memory make a difference? Read on to see!
parkle Computer Inc., has been around since 1982. There aren’t a lot of current hardware companies that can boast of being around for over 25 years. And no, this Sparkle has nothing to do with Sparkle Power. Sparkle Computer builds a full line of geForce cards, and they aren’t afraid to get away from reference designs. Today I will be looking at the Sparkle Calibre P980+, which is a factory overclocked 9800GTX+. Sparkle has added a very interesting GPU cooler to this card. Will the P980+ impress? Read on to see!
