Sparkle GTX560 2GB OC Edition Review

The Sparkle GTX 560 ships in a green and black box, marking the Nvidia heritage.

The bundle includes a quick install guide, several power converters, a video adapter and a mini HDMI adapter.

Our sample had no SPARKLE markings, or stickers on the cooler, looking very like a reference card. It is built on a blue PCB with 2GB of Hynix H5GQ1H24BFR GDDR5 memory.

The Sparkle GTX560 is SLI capable, and requires 2 x 6 pin power connectors for operation.

On the rear are two purple coloured DVI ports and a mini HDMI connector with 1.4a / integrated audio support.

The cooler is very simple, with a central fan supporting the heatsink underneath. There are two copper heatpipes which run into two separate racks of aluminum fins.

Above, a GPUZ overview of the hardware. The card is built around the GF114 core, which features 32 ROPS, 336 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 which is connected via a 256 bit memory interface. The core clock is 823mhz, and memory is set at 1002mhz (4008mhz effective).
