Sparkle Calibre P980X+ GeForce 9800 GTX+ Video Card Announced

Taiwan's SPARKLE Computer announced availability of its new Calibre P980X+ graphics card, a highly customized GeForce 9800 GTX+ VGA. The Calibre P980X+ uses a 55nm version of the G92 GPU from NVIDIA, with raised core and shader clocks to 761MHz (738MHz) and 1911MHz (1836MHz stock) respectively. There's a 512MB of GDDR3 memory onboard, working at 1161MHz. Calibre customizes the card with the company's Dual Fly Fan System that consists of a copper base, two massive heat-pipes and two cooling fans situated at an angle. The Calibre P980X+ is also bundled with an overclocking software called SPA Tune. It will let users to choose between three modes of operation: Overclocking mode (OC), standard mode (STD) and green mode (GRN). There's no need to describe each one, their names are pretty self-explanatory. Each mode changes the card's clock speeds and fan rotation speed. At last, there's the back of the card where a HDMI, VGA D-sub and a DVI connector are lockated. Currently, there is no information on the availability and pricing of the card.

Why would they angle the cooler like that. Almost seems like they didn't want get sued by looking too much like DuOrb.

Sparkle has always experimented with it's cooling options so this is just another step forward for Sparkle.

Anyone remember the 8800GTX w/TEC cooler?? Its great to see independent manufactures to take a step out from the norm and show some risk with the cooling options.

Bend a DuOrb and Sparkle will sue Thermaltake :p
I don't really like it, I can't imagine how much of a difference would that cooler tilt do...

The cooler's angle is adjustable, so it's actually a pretty good solution. This is the perfect 9800 GTX+ for me. :rockout:
