“Highly rated on its design, performance, and specifications, the Calibre P768 Graphic Card represents the 80nm graphic warriors coming soon from NVIDIA and SPARKLE. “Said Kevin Wang, sales director of SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd."The NVIDIA SLI-Ready Calibre P768 Graphic Card unleashes extreme HD gaming on the PC, it supports Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and true high dynamic-range (HDR) lighting. Additionally, the Calibre P768 Graphic Card brings high-definition, home-theater quality video to the PC through the acclaimed NVIDIA PureVideo technology.”

Those are some very nice clockspeeds, eVGA's fastest 7600GT runs at 600Mhz... this Sparkle has quite a lead

I will remove the heatsink as soon as possible (should be tomorrow). In my first tests the GPU idled around 40°C (with 120mm fan pointed towards the heatsink) so there is a good chance this is a 80nm core also. Remembering the passive MSI 7600GT, 40°C is very good.
