Sparkle rolls out its new PCI-Express x1 cards

Written by Slobodan Simic

Geforce GT 210, 220 and 240

Sparkle has decided to roll out a couple of PCI-Express x1 cards and although we've already seen couple of these announced and detailed, Sparkle can brag to be the first one to do a GT 220 with a PCI-Express x1 interface.

All three cards feature a low-profile PCB paired up with a small heatsink/fan cooler. The GT 210 features 16 Cores, 512MB of DDR3 memory paired up with a 64-bit memory interface, and works at 589 for the GPU and 1402MHz for shaders. The GT 220 packs a bit more punch with 48 Cores, 128-bit memory interface with 1GB of DDR3 memory, and clocks set at 625MHz for the GPU and 1360MHz for shaders.

The cream of the crop is the GT 240 with its 96 Cores, 128-bit memory interface and 1GB of DDR3 memory. This one works at 550MHz for the GPU and 1340MHz for shaders.

Unfortunately, Sparkle didn't announce the availability date or the price of these cards but we are sure that they might end up in an HTPC system or two.
