As NVIDIA celebrates the launch of its two new flagship products: the GeForce GTX 295 and GeForce GTX 285, Sparkle made an addition to its mainstream graphics lineup with a 1 GB variant its GeForce 9600 GSO accelerator (model: SX96SO1024D3-HM). Traditionally, the G92 graphics processor in the 8800 GS, 9600 GSO should have a 192-bit memory bus, but with this particular card, Sparkle chose a 128-bit memory bus and added 1 GB of GDDR3 memory.

The card features a dual-slot cooler for the GPU. Its core is clocked at 550 MHz. Its 96 stream processors are clocked at 1375 MHz. The memory runs at 800 MHz (1600 MHz DDR). It supports NVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technologies and is SLI capable. It will be priced around US $100.

1GB DDR3 on 128bit memory bus?

What the hell will they come up with next?!!! :nutkick:

I hate it when a company like nVidia has to rebrand the same shit 3 times and leave their partners nothing better than such retarded spec cards that screws the consumers over.

I have a Sparkle 9600GSO with 1GB of ram, now I can play games at the full 1920 resolution with AA/AF maxed out smoothly!!! :laugh::laugh::laugh:

I still don't get how they're making these 512mb and 1024mb G92 cards because the cards either have 8 ROPS or 16, you can't get 12 ROPS which is what the GS and the GSO have with 512MB or 1024MB but If I had to guess, they have 8, because so far every nvidia G80 G92, G94, and G200 follow the rule of 2 ROPS for every nand of memory, except the 128bit GSO from ASUS which I believe is bios locked.

The rebrands have nothing to do with this.
