Press-service of SPARKLE Computer Co. announced the release of non-standard to perform a modified version of the graphic adapter NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 based on the established 55-nm chip technology G200-103-B2 with 216 stream processors. It was reported that its developers have formed in the offspring of a blue PCB`s own design, which differs from the reference enhanced power subsystem with a large number of phases, as well as the use of only high-quality capacitors with solid electrolyte. Thus, according to the creators were able to significantly improve the stability of the product, as well as a marked increase in its upper potential. In addition, the effective diversion of excess heat from the main hot spots accelerator was used at the same time more productive and less noisy dvuhslotovaya active air cooling system is an original design. New on board is 896 MB GDDR3 memory with 448-bit interface that uses the PCI Express bus 2. 0 х16, compatible with DirectX 10. 0 Shader Model 4. 0, and supports technologies such as NVIDIA PhysX Technology, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, NVIDIA CUDA Technology, and NVIDIA SLI Technology. As for the frequency, they constitute the 576/1242/1998 MHz frequency (kernel/Shader units/memory), while the communication opportunities presented video removed on the rear panel two ports DVI. On the expected value of the product and the probable time of its massive sales so far nothing is known.
