Sparkle Add A New Twist To GPU Thermal Monitoring

It seems that all or a majority of Sparkle's future gaming-oriented graphics cards will support real-time thermal monitoring - which means taking the Nvidia CP out of the equation. Novelty or genuine tool? Feel free to comment below...

Looks like a good idea, but there are a few applications out there that monitor cpu and gpu temperature side-by-side so I don't know how much use it will be.

Much better than haveing to alt - tab out of a game to find out the GPU temp!

Rofl, use RivaTuners temp monitor, it logs temps in a graph for you no matter what youre doing so you can check what they peaked at after youve finished playing

haha

I remember getting the old Sparkle S3 Virge cards years ago, cheapest ones out.

The idea of having a thermal monitor on the card is cool, altho it might be a better idea to make a drive bay mountable one for people who don't have or want a window on the side of their case? altho maybe that could be an idea for a mod already.

What card is that? says DX10, but it actually looks a decent size as it is not massive

SPARKLE's entry level DirectX 10 graphic card is based on NVIDIA advanced G86 GPU architecture. They will be on sale around the globe synchronously when NVIDIA officially announces G84 and G86 graphic chips.
One of them.

It looks like the LCD unplugs, so it wouldn't be hard to run some wires to a bay.
