Sparkle Announces Calibre Intelligent Dual Fly VGA Cooling Solution

Sparkle Computer announced its newest innovation in graphics card design: the Calibre IDF (Intelligent Dual Fly) cooler. Its design intends to put greater control over the card's temperatures, while taking the same away from driver-level fan speed presets. The concept involves a copper GPU block from which heatpipes arise, conveying heat to two circular aluminum fin arrays on either sides of the block. Each array holds its own fan that blows air onto it. The air from these also help passively cool other components on the graphics card, such as memory chips and the VRM area. Between these two also lies the so-called "GBOX control terminal".

This component has its own temperature sensor, and depending on the temperature, adjusts fan speeds, and interestingly, has a mechanism that moves the two aluminum fin arrays parallel to the plane of the PCB or angled to it. When angled, the cooler's passive cooling (under its air-flow) is extended to far reaches of the card. Thresholds are set for under 50 °C temperatures to keep the two parallel to the card, and higher temperatures angled to it. With low power requirements of this mechanism, the entire cooler makes do with the 4-pin fan power connection to the card. Sparkle is also working on an accessory that lets the cooler's readings and perhaps some controls be provided on a fan-controller that fits into a 5.25" drive bay on the PC case. Although no new graphics cards from the company are said to feature this cooler, it will make it to newer models in the near future.

SPARKLE Proudly Announced Diamonds Sputtering Technology for Video Cards

SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today proudly announced Diamonds Sputtering technology for video cards, which raise the bar for video card cooling technology.

Now with more and more advanced relative technologies, the performance of video cards is getting stronger and stronger, there will be more heat generated by video cards, which significantly impairs the life expectancy of GPU and video memory chips on video cards. Video card companies have a lot of programs come and go to solve the problem of heat dissipation. The most commonly seen in general is the use of fans with cooling fins to do additional cooling. in the early days, the cooling job can be done simply with a fan or cooling fins, but in today's graphics cards with more intense heat than before, the cooling job must be done on the technologies not the same as before, not just rely on the fan and cooling fins. Video card companies must go to find some relatively new method to solve the problem of heat dissipation.
