Sparkle Introduces GeForce GTX 260 1792MB GPU

Sparkle definitely isn't the most prominent video card maker out there, but that's not to say it doesn't push out some rather interesting products. Take, for example, the new GeForce GTX 260 1792MB, which obviously has more RAM than some entire gaming rigs. Unlike lots of competitors, Sparkle uses a custom PCB which provides enhanced power circuitry with more phases of vGPU power circuits and vMem circuits, which supposedly makes the graphics card more stable and powerful than NVIDIA's reference design. There's no clear cut price or US release date, but the full specifications and details are below:

looks interesting. I am going to keep my eye on their releases to see if there half as good as their psu's. If they are look out we could have another reputable manufacturer on our hands. Sparkle has always been known to make solid inexpensive psu's. This is def a exciting release.
