Sparkle rolls out single-slot GTS 450

Same specs on single-slot card

Sparkle has officially announced its latest card based on Nvidia's GF106 GPU, the Geforce GTS 450 ONE. Sparkle managed to squeeze in the single-slot cooling solution without going below the reference clocks on this one.

The new single-slot GTS 450 still features 192 CUDA Cores and works at 789MHz for the GPU, 1579MHz for Shaders and 3760MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface. The new card has two DVI and a single mini HDMI output. The cooler itself is designed with a blower fan and a heatsink with two copper heatpipes, which is apparently quite enough to keep the GF106 temps at bay.

Unfortunately, the price or the availability date haven't been announced.

Not really usefull as 450 is a very slow card (even slower than the old 5770).

They should have made it to ware it looked like the single slot 7800gtx as a matter of taste. Performance wise I'll stick with my two aging 9800gt 1gb editions and my GTX460 is already barely minimum for one of the games that I play and have to nuke it to 900mhz just not to lag. -.-

It's not gaming speed that makes this single-slot card so attractive, it's folding@home performance. 7 of these in a single machine is some SERIOUS folding power, especially for the cost and power requirements.

The GTS 450 isn't an impressive gaming card, no, but it's hands down the best bang-for-the-buck for folding, and being able to cram more of them into a single machine is wonderful.
