Taipei, Taiwan – March 18, 2010 - SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today announced the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card the first GT220 graphics card on market with 2GB video memory configuration, bringing incredible 3D power to mainstream gamers.
Advanced Rendering Architecture
Based on NVIDIA’s next generation GT216 architecture, the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card adopt innovative unified architecture, dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs. Built upon technologies such as NVIDIA Lumenex Engine, providing support for DirectX 10.1 Shader Model 4.0, NVIDIA Quantum Effects technology for physics computation and GigaThread Technology for extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.
2GB Incredible Large High Speed Video Memory
Today‘s game, such as Crysis2, Stalker: Call Of Pripyat, Battlefield: Bad Company2, they normally use a large number of bump texture, transparent texture to describe faces of characters and render realistic gaming scenes, so these games put higher demands on the capacities of video memory. The current situation demands at least 512 MB video memory to run these games. Compared with ordinary GeForce GT 220 graphics cards on market with 1GB video memory, the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card comes with incredible large 2GB DDR2 video memory, making them to be first batch of GT 220 graphics cards in the world with 2GB video memory.
Special Designed Cooling System
The SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card is equipped with exquisitely made low-speed cooling fan with low working noise.The cooling fan uses high-density aluminum cooling fins which dramatically raise the heat dissipation area and the thermal performance. Helped with the strong R&D team, SPARKLE also extends the service life of the cooling fins by doing treatment on the fins' surface to prevent the oxidation.
The capacitors are key factor of power supply on the system and it has great impact on system stability. At present, solid capacitors and electrolytic capacitors both store electricity and discharge it when needed. According to factual test, any operation under high frequency and temperature, solid capacitors are able to supply more stable current than electrolytic capacitors and strengthen longer lifespan. Solid capacitors contain zero risk of leaking or exploding. The SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card uses all solid capacitor as a true factor of products quality.
Experience Vivid DX10.1 Graphics
Experience the vivid DX10.1 gaming graphics at fluent frame rates, or go beyond traditional 3D graphics and experience GPU-accelerated NVIDIA PhysX gaming effects, Stereoscopic 3D, and lightning fast video and image processing. All you need is the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card with full DirectX 10.1 and full Shader Model 4.1 support, delivering unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects.
HDMI 1.3a Support
Fully integrated support for HDMI 1.3a including xvYCC,Deep color and 7.1 digital surround sound.
Premium Windows 7 Experience
Graphics cards are an essential element of today’s PCs, enabling more visual and more interactive experiences. As a leading manufacturer in graphics cards market, SPARKLE worked closely with Microsoft on the development of Windows 7 to ensure that its graphics cards take full advantage of the great new features and functionality. If you use your PC to enhance photos, watch or edit videos, play games, or if you simply desire a fast and efficient graphical interface, the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card will surely delight your senses and offer a premium experience for Windows 7.
