    After the successful launch of the world's most powerful single graphics card- GeForce GTX 580, SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today announced the world's first independent produced GeForce GTX 580 V-Go Graphics Card, becoming the world's first manufacturer who can independently produce high-end graphics cards using Fermi architecture. “We are pleased with the new high level of SPARKLE R&D and production capabilities.” said Kevin Wang, General Manager of SPARKLE. “ Our mission is to provide the best graphics cards products and services to DIY players and professionals with expertise spirit on garaphics cards manufacturing for 16 years."

    Since the release date, there's no independent produced GeForce GTX 580 graphics card from AIC, because it is very difficult to pass the extreme rigorous tests and verification conducted by NVIDIA. All the GeForce GTX 580 graphics cards which users now can buy in market are the reference boards, by definition all brands GTX580 series graphics cards are identical. As NVIDIA's add-in-cards partner and global strategic partner, with the strong R&D and manufacturing capabilities, SPARKLE took the lead in passing the NVIDIA original product performance testing, thermal performance and noise testing, product reliability/compatibility testing, burn-in and a series of strict validation, to become the world's first AIC manufacturer which can self-produce the GeForce GTX580 reference boards.

    Elegant Design With Predominant Performance
    SPARKLE GeForce GTX580 V-Go provides the user with the perfect quality from the reference board, but also integrated with SPARKLE unique design style. The graphics card uses blue PCB design, double purple DVI-I + mini HDMI output interfaces, changing from the black PCB with the white color of output interface from the reference design, so that entire graphics card is elegant with dynamic appearance.

    As the world's most powerful gaming graphics card with single chip, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX580 V-Go adopts NVIDIA latest Fermi architecture, with 512 CUDA cores, 1536MB GDDR5 high-speed video memory, so the DX11 performance and image quality of SPARKLE GTX580 V-Go's have been improved tremendously, bringing film-like realistic to DIY gamers. The Sparkle GTX580 V-Go uses Vapor Chamber thermal cooling design, thermal cooling efficiency of this design is far more than the copper heat-pipe cooling, bringing cooling and quiet operation.

    Self-confidence From The Strength
    Strong research and development capabilities has been the proud and important resource of SPARKLE. .Accounted for 44% of the company's human resources, the SPARKLE R&D team has established a global technology, talent, experience and quality management research and development platform. SPARKLE has a strong production and manufacturing capacity, with 1,200 members standard operating lines, the average monthly production capacity exceeded 600K pcs. In the back of strong support, SPARKLE GeForce GTX580 V-Go can go to the market massively in the near future, meeting the need of high-end gamers and industry users.

    So it's a refence design with different colour PCB and DVI ports and a slightly different cooler that looks exactly the same as the reference one? Not really deserving of a PR, methinks.

    It sounds like this is not really to do with the card it's self and more to do with the fact that sparkle is the first to be allowed to make reference 580 cards, so i assume that means all 580's were made by someone for Nvidia (foxxcon or something?) and all the board partners just used their sticker, bundle and box.

    I think singular manufactures of the ref. design may be better. As I recall when looking into the gelid icy vision for the 400 series there were issues with fit because the IHS was a different height depending on the brand. At the least nvidia should demand tighter tolerances on cards deemed "reference."

    Shouldn't that read most powerful single GPU card rather than most powerful single card?

    When I think V-go I read it as Vigo. In the US we think of this guy from the popular classic Ghostbusters 2. The naming might do better in other markets though.
