Sparkle rolls out its Calibre X560 card

Written by Slobodan Simic

The GTX 560 Ti at 1GHz
Following the release of Nvidia's GTX 560 Ti card and in addition to the reference cooled and clocked card, Sparkle has rolled out a yet another GTX 560 Ti that will be a part of Sparkle's Calibre series, the Calibre X560.

Packing a 40nm GF114 GPU that is clocked at 1000MHz, the Calibre X560 comes with 384 CUDA cores clocked at 2000MHz, 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4800MHz and a non-reference Artic Accelero cooler. The cooler features two 92mm PWM fans and four heatpipes connected to a rather large heatsink, which should keep the 1GHz clocked GPU at a stable temperature. Unfortunately, due to the sheer size of the cooler, the card takes up three slots.

The card has yet to appear on the market so we'll have to wait for a price.

Sparkle coolers always seem so girlish, what's up with that?

They even have an unicorn next to their brand...

On top of the purple, I don't like that it's a 3 slot cooler and that it's also too tall, poor pipe bending job.

Asus's two slot DirectCU II shaved off 13*C of load temps from the reference cooler... if this won't manage that, it'll be pretty disappointing!

the cooler is from Arctic, you'll see Inno3d with the same cooler.

they make the coolers while the company puts 'em in the card.

And this matters how?... I did see the label of AC, not blind!

If you pick the cooler from an OEM, at least have some parameters as a guide, but if you're AC you could try pushing this as a standalone product to see if it goes well.

Don't get me wrong but I chuckle when I hear the word "Sparkle" and graphic card in one word.

Steve: Hey dude, check out my MSI graphic card. What do you have?

Bob: ...a Sparkle
