Today Sparkle announced the Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card with Effective Own Design Cooler , a DX11 3D card which delivers high performance and premium cooling effect for gamers.
The Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card is the latest new addition to Sparkle’s GTX 580 Series. Its core and memory clock are 772 and 4008 MHz respectively. Designed specifically for gamers the Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card is built with NVDIA GeForce GTX 580 GPU. Based on 40nm processor and advanced GDDR5 memory technology, its features include Microsoft DirectX 11 and NVIDIA PhysX which lead to incredibly immersive HD gaming experience.
For the cooler design, Sparkle has tried to balance the weight and the cooling performance of graphic cards' cooler. So as for this Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card, it adopts the aluminum fins with the pure copper heat pipes to enhance heat transfer efficiency while also reducing the weight of the cooler, effectively avoiding the risk of bending the plate. This cooler also integrated many advanced manufacturing process, the whole cooler uses tin free welding process, pillars traversed cooling fins technology and pillars inserted cooling fins technology to ensure cooling efficiency, use life and the sense of integrated design. With this cooler, the full loading GPU temperature is 5 degree Celsius lower than the reference cooler of GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. The weight of the cooler is only half of the reference design.
The Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card takes up 2 PCI slots, but only with one slot iron bracket, making the card to be more light and clean.
The Sparkle Announced GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card's cooler comes with two 80mm cooling fans. Compared with single fan design, they make the card running quieter and provide more powerful air flow for the graphics card.
The cooler of the Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card use four pure copper heat pipes, combing with the GPU direct contact technology to enable more efficient heat transfer.
Combining with pure aluminum cooling fins, the pure copper heat pipes use tin free welding process and cooling fins assembly technology, effectively avoiding the heat pipes' oxidation due to the corrosion from the high temperature tin melting process in the tin welding process and the high welding temperature.
Usually graphics cards' coolers can only draw the air to do cooling job. But Sparkle deliberately designs a unique wind collecting cover for the cooler. Using the specially designed air duct on the cover, the flow of the air will enter the cooler along the fixed orbit, to enhance the efficiency of heat dissipation, while reducing wear and tear on the fan. In addition, the air duct design can effectively avoid the hand injury due to touching the cooler during the graphics card installation and taking down process.
The Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card enables interactive ray tracing for ultra photo-realistic scenes. The Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card powers interactive raytracing, bringing spectacular, photo-realistic renderings to your screen for the first time. By using the power of the GF110 GPUs, the Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card supports recursion in hardware, enabling efficient ray tracing and a host of other graphics algorithms. It excels not just at standard ray tracing, but also at advanced global illumination algorithms such as path tracing.
The Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card implements a brand new 32x anti-aliasing mode for higher levels of image quality. And the GeForce GTX 580's enhanced compression engine maintains incredible performance with anti-aliasing and resolution cranked up, providing both high frame rates and top notch image quality.
Prepare to be blown away by the most immersive PC gaming experience imaginable. Leveraging the power of multiple GF110 GPUs in an NVIDIA SLI configuration, NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround enables a new level of eye-popping 3D stereo gaming, expanding your real estate across 3 panels for the ultimate "inside the game" feeling. The Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card provides the incredible graphics horsepower to run your game in 3D stereo, across 3 panels, at HD resolutions up to 5760x1080. The Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card also supports gaming across three non-3D displays with resolutions up to 2560x1600, it's the best in Class 2D Surround Gaming.
Packing in 512 CUDA cores, a high speed GDDR5 memory interface, and full DirectX 11 support, the Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card is designed for groundbreaking graphics performance. With a revolutionary new scalable geometry pipeline and enhanced anti-aliasing capabilities, the Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card is a powerful single GPU Graphics Card solution.
Today‘s DX11 game, such as Stalker: Call Of Pripyat, Metro 2033 use as large as possible number of bump texture, transparent texture to describe faces of characters and render realistic gaming scenes, so these DX11 games put rigorous demands on the bandwidth and capacities of video memory. The current situation demands at least 1GB video memory to run these games. Compared with high-end graphics cards on market with 1GB GDDR5 video memory, the Sparkle GTX580 Thermal Guru Graphics Card comes with incredible large 1536MB high speed GDDR5 video memory, meeting the rigorous demands from current DX11 games.
