Sparkle has announced Geforce 8 HDMI series graphics cards for mainstream users. The new cards are based on the G84 and G86 architecture.
Sparkle will have four products which will offer a DVI-HDMI adapter and SPDIF IN on board. This sounds promising, since the entire Sparkle lineup can now be connected to HDMI ready LCD or plasma TV, of course with full sound over the SPDIF IN on board connector. As the entire Geforce 8 series these cards will support DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0.
"SPARKLE GeForce 8 HDMI Series Graphic Cards raise the bar for DirectX 10 graphics and video performance. As with the entire HDMI support, SPARKLE GeForce 8 HDMI Series Graphic Cards deliver great DirectX 10 gaming performance, stunning Microsoft Windows Vista graphics, and stellar HD DVD and Blu-ray video playback through advanced HDMI interface to users' HDTV," said Kevin Wang, sales director of SPARKLE Computer.
