The SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT Cool-pipe 3 graphics card features the newest PureVideo™ HD VP2 technology which leverages the revolutionary third generation video-processing engine in GeForce 8880 GTCool-pipe 3 graphic chip to deliver the highest-quality playback of HD DVD and Blu-ray movies on high-end PCs. The new programmable video processing engine takes on all of the high definition H.264 HD video decoding, freeing the CPU to perform other tasks and significantly reducing power consumption, heat, and noise.
“The SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT Cool-pipe 3 makes high-end gamers' dreams of 0dB DirectX 10 gaming cards come true. Now they can get extreme DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 gaming performance without a whiney GPU cooler, or add cumbersome water cooling system to reduce noise levels." Said Kevin Wang, sales director of SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd. "The SPARKLE GeForce 8800 GT Cool-pipe 3 graphic card unites passive cooling with powerful 3D acceleration, bringing incredible silent working environment for high-end users!"
