Sparkle Readies Single-Slot GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Card

Sparkle computer's CeBIT bit booth featured an eye-catching new graphics card, the Sparkle One GTX 570. This is the first air-cooled single-slot GeForce GTX 570 series graphics card. While it is thin, the card is extremely long. We estimate around 13-inches long, if not more. Sparkle seems to be making use of the extra length to squeeze in as much metal (heatsink) as possible. A fan pushes air backwards. The card features clock speeds of 752/1504/4000 MHz (core/shader/memory).

Like every other GTX 570, it's based on the 40 nm GF110 GPU with 480 CUDA cores enabled, and 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory across a 320-bit wide memory interface. Display outputs include one each of DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. Sparkle expects the card to be released by next month.

Sure Inno!.... Someone complains it is 'long' and you say "exept for those that fold"

Fold: like when you fold a pair of (long) trousers to store them.... Cool!
Oh I see.

it didnt click the first time I saw the photo but I like how where the fan is there is holes in the PCB to draw air from both sides of the card, nice addition.

also I think for whatever reason it gives the impression that it is longer than it really is, I could be mistaken but it seems like GTX480/580 length... perhaps 5970 at most.

I'd like to see the heatsink, I think that would explain more of the length questions.

Quick observation here:
I'm just wondering why they didn't put 2 (or more) fans on this card. 2+ slower fans would both help drop temps and lower noise compared to one fan which can be loud at full load, compared to dual-slot solutions.

Probably cost more to have two fans.
