Sparkle has unveiled a new series of passive GeForce 8600 GT graphics cards.
Based on NVIDIA’s next generation G84 architecture, the SPARKLE GeForce 8600 GT passive cooling graphic cards adopt innovative unified architecture, dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs. Built upon technologies such as NVIDIA Lumenex Engine, providing support for DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0, NVIDIA Quantum Effects technology for physics computation and GigaThread Technology for extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.

Helped with NVIDIA's unified architecture, SPARKLE GeForce 8600 GT passive cooling graphic cards embrace 540MHz core speed, 32 stream processor,they bring untouchable DirectX 10 and shader model 4.0 performance to the mainstream pc gamers. Thanks to its 512MB high capacity video memory, SPARKLE GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 passive cooling graphic cards will brings more 3D power to handle latest DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 games, which have rigorous demand on the capacity of video card's memory.

SPARKLE GeForce 8600 GT passive cooling graphic cards use NVIDIA second-generation PureVideo HD technology, to bring untouchable HD video experience to users. They can deliver the highest-quality playback of HD DVD and Blu-ray movies on mainstream PCs. The new programmable video processing engine takes on all of the high definition H.264 HD video decoding, freeing the CPU to perform other tasks and significantly reducing power consumption, heat, and noise.
