Sparkle has unveiled the Calibre P888+ - this graphics card is based on the GeForce 8800 GT and has a small LCD to show temperatures and other statistics.
The Calibre P888+ Graphics Card is equipped with 65nm GeForce 8800 GT GPU, compared with NVIDIA reference GeForce 8800 GT graphic card, the Calibre P888+ Graphics Card possesses higher core speed at 675MHz and higher memory speed at 2000MHz. So combining with 1728MHz 112 stream processors which take care of shader special effects, the Calibre P888+ Graphics Card introduces lifelike character animation and rich, immersive gaming environments for today's DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 demanding 3D games, suck as BIOSHOCK, Crysis and so on. Ahead for next generation data transportation standard, the Calibre P888+ graphic card is one of the world's first PCI Express 2.0 graphic cards, which can maximize the usage of 5GT/s bandwidth (twice that of first generation PCI Express) provided by PCI Express 2.0, to be full ready for future games and applications which have strict requirements on bandwidth. At the same time, the Calibre P888+ Graphics Card is also compatible with with present PCI Express 1.1 motherboards with widest scope of support.

The Calibre P888+ Graphics Card uses NVIDIA newest developed PureVideo HD VP2 technology and has the new generation video-processing engine integrated, the Calibre P888+ Graphics Card also supports for HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), can fully take advantage of NVIDIA PureVideo HD VP2 technology to offload most of Blu-ray and HD DVD H.264 video decoding from CPU, freeing the CPU for other tasks and significantly reducing power consumption, heat and noise, providing the highest quality High-Definition video for the ultimate home theater experience.

With innovative mind in design, SPARKLE endows the Calibre P888+ Graphics Card with second generation of Graphics Display Port (GDP) daughter card- GDP2. With second generation of GDP, this daughter card use LCD with back light to show real-time GPU temperature, GPU working voltage, fan speed and Calibre Logo. User can manually switch the surveillance case with corresponding graphic logo to represent the case to avoid damage caused by GPU overheating or lower fan speed. Compared with SPARKLE's first generation GDP daughter card, GDP2 daughter card is added with the surveillances for GPU working voltage and fan speed, it's also added with smart surveillance functions. With a more beautiful LCD, user can be clear at a glance to know the working condition of the graphic card.
