Sparkle has unveiled four new GeForce 9600 GT graphics cards with 1GB GDDR3 memory. A bit excessive as these cards can't really take advantage of such large quantities of memory but it probably sells well.
Adopting NVIDIA next-generation GeForce 9 graphics chip, the SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT 1GB Graphics Card is powered by advanced technology such as DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0 and 65nm chip manufacturing and also double the quantity of video memory from 512MB GDDR3 of ordinary GeForce 9600 GT graphics cards on market to incredible 1GB GDDR3. This huge leap let the SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT 1GB Graphics Card easily handle with most texture storage demanded Direct X10 games in the world, such as Crysis, Gears of War, Bioshock and so on. The SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT 1GB Graphics Card brings more rendering power than ever by its 650MHz core speed, 64 1625MHz stream processors and 1800MHz 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 video memory.

With the promise of continuing to innovate in graphics card manufacture, and with strong R&D teams, SPARKLE equips the SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT 1GB Graphics Card with SPARKLE own designed Sun Flower Cooling Fan, which replaces NVIDIA reference cooling fans on ordinary GeForce 9600 GT graphics cards. This exclusively designed Sun Flower Cooling Fan uses SPARKLE patented technology known as " Cooling Fins Radial Design". People generally think that the more radiator fins, the better the effect of heat spread, in fact it is only one hand, the more important is that how efficient and how fast it will transfer heat from the bottom of the radiator to the cooling fin. SPARKLE designed Sun Flower Cooling Fan solves this problem perfectly. From the craftwork point, ordinary radiators for graphics card simply use aluminum extrusion and pressure process with insufficient cooling fins, or with a clear gap between fins and bottom, which has seriously affected thermal performance. Now this exclusively designed Sun Flower Cooling Fan uses a "pressure casting" process, to make the entire cooling radiator at once, this process can not only bring sufficient cooling fins, but also bring heat from the bottom to the fins rapidly and efficiently, thereby improving the overall thermal efficiency, coupled with the design of solid thermal conductivity, heat from centre bottom can be brought even quickly to fins. Apart from the unique design of heat sinks, SPARKLE designed Sun Flower Cooling Fan is also designed with very reasonable wind road and long-life low speed quiet fan. this design can maximize the air-flow and the air-pressure of the heat sources.

Besides this incredible efficient Sun Flower Cooling Fan, SPARKLE also introduced SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT 1GB Graphics Card with passive cooling solution, to meet the silent operation demand from HTPC and video enthusiasts who seek 0dB working environments. This heat-pipe-based passive cooling system using high technology. Compared with conventional HSF, this noiseless passive cooling solution features higher throughput thanks to high efficiency heat-pipe optimized for mass heat volatilization. It has high performance thermal compound ensures optimal thermal dissipation even after years of use.
