INTRODUCTION In this test, we are going to have a look on a graphics card from Sparkle. We’ve recently evaluated an 8800 Ultra from Sparkle, which scored a high test score, mostly because of its custom cooling feature. The card for this test is an 8600GT with 512 DDR3 RAM.
PACKAGING Sparkle Calibre 8600GT comes in a black box with a handle on top.
Around the side on the box, information about the card is imprinted, as well as information about Sparkle’s customer service. Furthermore, it is explained that a power supply of minimum 350W is required to use this graphics card. Inside the box, the card is wrapped in plastic and fitted inside a plastic container. It’s pretty evident that this package is designed for other cards also.
Inside the box, the following are included:
• Driver CD • Quick Start Guide • S-video cable • Component cable • Multi cable • DVI-VGA converter
