|DirectX10 gamers now have on their side the most powerful GPU of our days. The VGA cards manufacturer SPARKLE launched its latest design, the GeForce 9800 GX2 Graphics Card, rightfully considered to be world's fastest board. The core speed of the GPU reaches 600MHz, while its 256 stream processors go up to 1500MHz. It also uses 2x256-bit 1024MB GDDR3 memory running at the speed of 2GHz.
The GeForce 9800 GX2 architecture developed by Nvidia has been successfully used by SPARKLE in designing and manufacturing this graphics card. In comparison with GeForce 8800 GTX which has only one chip, the new GPU features two chips inside, making it twice faster than G92. SPARKLE's card becomes this way the perfect choice for DirectX10 titles as Crysis, Company of Heroes, World in Conflict, BioShock or Gears of War.
All the hardware specifications from Microsoft's DirectX10 notes are featured by the graphics card. It also includes Shader Model 4 capabilities and support for the DirectX10 Unified Shader instructions set. The unequaled levels of graphics performance delivered by DirectX10, its realism and superior effects are rendered in real-time by this SPARKLE graphics card. Available for this GPU are also Quad NVIDIA SLI technology and HybridPower technology, which offer higher performance and power effective solutions for the best experience.

It can successfully unload the decoding from the CPU allowing it to perform other tasks. This way, there is a significant power consumption reduction, as well as of heat and noise. The High-Definition video quality and home theater experience are provided in the best way possible. SPARKLE GeForce 9800 GX2 features dual DVI-I and HDMI outputs and can provide up to 1920x1080i resolution.
SPARKLE GeForce 9800 GX2 is compatible with PCI Express 2.0 standard. The usage of the 5GT/s bandwidth is maximized up to twice in comparison with the first generation PCI Express, making it ready for the future games and applications which will certainly be more demanding in what concerns bandwidth. As many motherboards do not feature PCI Express 2.0, SPARKLE GeForce 9800 GX2 is also compatible with PCI Express 1.1, providing a wider scope of support.
"The DirectX10 gaming platform is built around the fastest components available and today SPARKLE proudly provides the SPARKLE GeForce 9800 GX2 Graphics Card, the most important components to DirectX 10 gamers. It delivers double stunning performance gains today and supports the key features that will facilitate an awesome visual experience on DirectX 10 titles," Said Allen Wu, sales manager of SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd. And he added that high-resolution gaming and high-definition video playback will also be available for consumers through this graphics card.
