SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card Uses Solderless Product With Green Process And Free Contact Process Cooling Technology
Ordinary Graphics card cooler more commonly use soldering process with tin-based solder alloys, the soldering tin will melt at a certain temperature, the binding layer is formed between the metal welding parts and tin atoms. When the graphics card starts running, the GPU heat transferred between the cooling metals must pass the soldering medium first. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card uses Solderless Product With Green Process,making the cooling metal to fully contact each other, improving the ineffective heat conduction caused by traditional tin soldering and reducing the thermal resistance. Compared with tin soldering used by ordinary graphics card cooler, the Solderless Product With Green Process, has a higher heat transfer efficiency.
- With 5 high-performance copper heat pipes, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card uses Free Contact process design, the heat pipes contact the GPU directly. This design allows the heat to transfer to the heat sink rapidly, effectively increasing the heat conduction, the cooling performance was significantly upgraded to maintain the stability of the system which is running efficiently.
(As shown in Figure 1, in the actual full loading, compared with GeForce GTX 470/465 graphics cards using ordinary cooling fan on market, the working temperatures of SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card is reduced by 4 degrees / 5 degrees.)
Unlike the standard fan design on the GeForce GTX 470/465 reference card , the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card introduces the turbine thruster concept with large diameter 80x15 cooling fan that can produce stronger wind pressure during operation and quickly remove excess heat. Using the built-in PWM Technology, the fan automatically adjusts its rotational speed according to load balance for an even more effective reduction of noise during operation.

With the power of GF100 GPUs, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card bring ultimate DX11 HD gaming experience to mainstream gamers. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card places gamers in the center of the action and experience true DirectX 11 gaming cinema in extreme HD (2560x1600) resolutions—all enabled by GF100's revolutionary compute architecture, NVIDIA 3-way SLI technology, and incredible performance in the latest DX11 games including Dirt 2, Stalker :OCP, Alien VS. Predator, Metro 2033 and so on.
The Revolutionary Compute Architecture for Gaming
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card adopts the GF100 architecture which implements all DirectX 11 hardware features, including tessellation and Direct Compute, among others. GF100 brings forward a vastly improved compute architecture designed specifically to support next generation gaming effects such as ray tracing, order-independent transparency, and fluid simulations. Game performance and image quality receive a tremendous boost, and GF100 enables film-like geometric realism for game characters and objects.
Geometric realism is central to the GF100 architectural enhancements for graphics. In addition, PhysX simulations are much faster, and developers can utilize GPU computing features in games most effectively with GF100.
Incredible Detailed Visuals
By supporting tessellation, the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card lets mainstream gamers to experience an unprecedented level of detail and realism in the latest games, such as Metro 2033, AVP etc. Tessellation- one of the biggest new features of Microsoft DirectX11 helps developers create more detailed characters and terrain in games, bringing mainstream gamers sharper, crisper images and a more realistic experience. The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card are built ground up for tessellation up to 8X faster geometry performance than previous graphics cards, bringing games closer to reality without sacrificing the high frame rates.
Ray Tracing Support: The Future Of Gaming
The SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card brings interactive ray tracing to the consumer market for the first time, providing a glimpse into the future of visual realism in games. By tracing the path of light through a 3D scene, ray tracing uses the power of the GF100 GPUs to create spectacular, photo-realistic visuals.
GF100’s compute architecture was built specifically with ray tracing in mind. GF100 is the first GPU to support recursion in hardware, enabling efficient ray tracing and a host of other graphics
GF100 excels not just at standard ray tracing, but also at advanced global illumination algorithms such as path tracing, which uses a much larger number of rays to collect ambient lighting information from the scene.
To sustain performance, a game may use ray tracing selectively. This hybrid model of rendering enables fast performance with great image quality. Thanks to the innovative unified cache architecture in GF100, ray tracing on the SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470/465 Graphics Card runs up to 4 times faster than prior generation GPUs.
