    SPARKLE Computer today announced the World's First Display Port Graphics Card Sample, the world's first graphics card with DisplayPort support.

    As a new high-end graphics card designed for the most demanding DirectX 10 games, the SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT DisplayPort Graphics Card uses the 65nm GeForce 8800 GT, the newest and powerful GPU in the GeForce 8 series from NVIDIA, raises the bar for DirectX 10 graphics and video performance. Besides all these great 3D features, the SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT DisplayPort Graphics Card is designed for the new PCI Express 2.0 bus standard and is backwards compatible with the original PCI Express standard, to be full ready for future games and applications which have rigorous requirements on bandwidth.

    Ahead for next generation display interface, the SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT DisplayPort graphics card is the world' s first DisplayPort ready graphics card. DisplayPort is a new digital display interface standard (approved May 2006, current version 1.1 approved on April 2, 2007) put forth by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). Unlike present HDMI interface, It defines a new license-free, royalty-free, state-of-the-art digital audio/video interconnect, intended to be used primarily between a computer and its display monitor, or a computer and a home-theater system. Helped with strong R&D team, SPARKLE takes the lead in introducing DisplayPort interface into the SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT DisplayPort Graphics Card with only one cable required, it is able to simultaneously transmit 3 1080p high resolution digital video streams and 7.1 surround-sound audio quality with 10.8Gb/s bandwidth.

    “To keep our pace of cutting-edge technology, SPARKLE has been implementing extreme research and development abilities into the the SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT DisplayPort graphics card, With DisplayPort interface, it extends a wider scenario of graphic card usages." Said Joe Lo, product director of SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd. " The SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT DisplayPort graphics card is the world's first graphics card equipped with the DisplayPort technology today. Along with this simple connectivity, the audio/video signals on PC will be correspondingly transmitted to LCD or Plasma TV for users. In addition, the SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT DisplayPort Graphics Card has stunning 3D rendering horsepower, which easily drives the speed and the scene complexity of DirectX 10 games to a new level. Now, SPARKLE has unleashed the world’s first DisplayPort-ready graphics card sample, and SPARKLE will decide the specific time of formally introducing DisplayPort interface into SPARKLE graphics cards product line, according to the development trend of DisplayPort technology."

    DisplayPort is fairly new. This is only the third card I've seen with it.
