Graphics card maker Sparkle debuts a new GeForce 9800 GTX+ card that features a non-reference PCB design. The card features a 738MHz core along with 512MB GDDR3 memory clocked at 2200MHz - basically the same clockspeeds as the reference design.
The card has an enhanced power circuitry and improved cooling:
Great Designed Non-Reference PCB
SPARKLE graphics cards with high performance and exceptional speeds are never far from the gamers' mind. That is why SPARKLE, producer of top quality graphic solutions, has today introduced the graphical solution with its own designed PCB. This PCB design provides enhanced power circuitry with more phases of vGPU power circuit and vMem circuit, combining with Japan-made polymer capacitors will lower power loss, making the graphics card more stable and powerful than NVIDIA reference design. In this way, users will be able to enjoy extreme performance and have peace of mind over product lifespan.
Exclusive Designed Cooling System
The SPARKLE GeForce 9800 GTX+ Graphics Card also utilizes SPARKLE own designed cooling fan that effectively dissipates heat away from the graphics card. Much like a tornado, the elaborately made thermal base combines copper and aluminum together by inserting frozen copper core into the machining hole on the aluminum. This ingenious design quickly transfers heat away from the GPU to lower temperatures, at same time, the copper core is heating up, making the combination even tighter, playing the best cooling effect.
The press release also features a nice Freudian slip:
738MHz core speed, 256-bit 512MB GDDR3 video memory and 1836MHz 128 stream processors, bringing lifelike character animation and rich, immersive gaming environments for DirectX 10 games, suck as BIOSHOCK, Crysis and so on.
