Sparkle shows off homebrewed GTX 580

Written by Slobodan Simic

New in-house designed PCB
Sparkle has shown its own, in-house made, GTX 580 card, dubbed Geforce GTX 580 V-Go. Featuring a blue PCB and purple DVI ouputs, the new card sticks to a pretty good reference cooler and reference clocks.

As noted, Sparkle's own GTX 580 V-GO features all the same outputs so you are looking at two DVI and one HDMI port. It also uses the reference cooler as this one does a pretty good job since it is based on Vapor Chamber technology. The rest of the specs are the same as on reference cards so you get 512 CUDA cores, GPU working at 772MHz, shaders clocked at 1544MHz and 1536MB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4008MHz and paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.

Unfortunately, Sparkle didn't announce the price tag or the availability date, but it might end up to be a little bit cheaper than the reference card.

Normally NVIDIA coolers look bad IMO. It`s nice to see companies like Sparkle to come out with a new cooler.

I really wish these manufacturers would quit with the "ZOMG, if we add some gawdy robot/dog/moster/etc sticker on it it would be the bomb!"

Those stickers are FUGLY. Just leave them black and add your brand onto them without the crap art.

Your comment just shows how little you know about the company. Generally speaking I've been using their stuff for over a decade and has always been of good quality, not to mention good prices.

Now, that being said, I find the purple ugly as well, but taste, like beauty , is in the eye of the beholder. I would prefer simple black as well, Deanjo, but I sure as hell wouldn't turn down a 580 or 6970, no matter how ugly the art. It's going in my case after all. Maybe they could make the gaudy art removable?
