Abacus introduces Sparkle GeForce 9600 GT graphic card

Abacus Peripherals introduced the SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card, which delivers DX10 3D rendering power, as well as HD video playback capabilities. 

Based on NVIDIA’s next generation GeForce 9600 architecture, GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card adopts unified architecture, dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to times the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs. It is built upon technologies such as NVIDIA Lumenex Engine, providing support for DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0, NVIDIA Quantum Effects technology for physics computation and GigaThread Technology for extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.  

The card brings HD gaming realism with 650MHz core speed, 1800MHz memory speed and 1625MHz shader clock. Its 64 stream processors and 512MB GDDR3 video memory deliver new levels of performance in latest DX10 games, such as Gears of War, Crysis, Bioshock and so on.  

Combining with NVIDIA PureVideo HD VP2 technology, the video processing unit of GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card can fully offload most of Blu-ray and HD DVD H.264 video decoding from CPU, freeing the CPU for other tasks and reducing power consumption, heat and noise, providing the highest quality High-Definition video for the ultimate home theater experience. 

Ahead for next generation data transportation standard, the Sparkle GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card complies with PCI Express 2.0 standard, it can maximize the usage of 5GT/s bandwidth (twice that of first generation PCI Express) provided by PCI Express 2.0, to be full ready for future games and applications which have strict requirements on bandwidth. At the same time, the GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card is also compatible with present PCI Express 1.1 motherboards with widest scope of support. 

“Sparkle has worked closely with NVIDIA on the development of SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card," said Allen Wu, Sales Manager, Sparkle Computer. He added, "This cooperation makes a significant milestone in a long-term relationship that has seen the companies share a passion for making the Sparkle GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card a perfect choice for mainstream gamers, who want get a lethal 3D weapon in latest DirectX 10 games."

  • OpenGL 2.1 optimizations and support- Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications

  • Dual 400MHz RAMDACs- Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high, ergonomic refresh rates –up to 2048x1536@85Hz.

  • Dual Dual-Link DVI Support- Able to drive industry’s largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays up to 2560x1600 and with support for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP).

  • NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology- The combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and video.

  • Discrete, Programmable Video Processor- NVIDIA PureVideo is a discrete programmable processing core in NVIDIA GPUs movies with 100% offload of H.264 video   decoding from the CPU and significantly reduced power consumption.

  • Hardware Decode Acceleration- Provides ultra-smooth playback of H.264, VC-1, WMV and PEG-2 HD and SD movies.

  • HDCP Capable- Designed to meet the output protection management (HDCP) and security specifications of the Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD formats, allowing the playback of encrypted movie content on PCs when connected to HDCP-compliant displays.

  • Dynamic contract Enhancement- Provides spectacular picture clarity with frame-by-frame optimization, allowing the playback of encrypted movie content on PCs when connected to HDCP- compliant displays.

  • Advanced Spatial-Temporal De-Interlacing- Sharpens HD and standard definition interlaced content on progressive displays,    delivering a crisp, clear picture that rivals high-end home-theater systems.

  • High-Quality Scaling- Enlarges lower resolution movies and videos to HDTV resolutions, up to 1080i, while maintaining a clear, clean image. Also provides downscaling of videos, including high- definition, while preserving image detail.

  • Inverse Telecine (3:2 & 2:2 Pulldown Correction) - Recovers original film images from films-converted-to-video (DVDs, 1080i HD content), providing more accurate movie playback and superior picture quality.
