It features a MHz processor and a MHz memory speed. The Calibre P Turbo graphics card features dual video BIOSes, each containing different core, memory and stream processors clock settings. Users can switch between the two clock speed profiles by pressing the turbo button on the metal expansion bracket above DVI ports. Flipping the switch does nothing until you reboot. Its a dual bios card. I’d say they’re just wasting space with this thing, if they’re going to make it blank out a second slot, then they may aswell make use of that space for a bigger, better cooler.

For that button I don’t think I should be spending more. Despite the P’s fast speeds and MB of GDDR3 p806, it’ll still struggle to provide smooth frame rates above a resolution of x These are well above the standard speeds for these components MHz and MHz claibre the processor and memory, respectively.
In the DirectX 9-based FEAR, however, the card returned a rate of 56fps at x and 40fps at x the standard resolution that should be used when playing on a 19in or 17in LCD monitor.
Calibre P specifications
In the DirectX based Call of Juarez, at x and with low detail settings, it scored Friday, October 13th Press of a button?
It’s already setup for optimum performance. For the sake of a button I don’t think I should be spending more. And besides since this card is meant for OC’ing, how come it being a dual-slot card has a single-slot cooler?
Well TBH p8600 would be even less point if you couldnt so I would imagine you can otherwise noone worldwide will buy it instead of just the 8 across the world that would if it did: This was further evident in the DirectX 10 version of Lost Planet: If you can see it, the LED panel will be useful for keeping an eye on the temperature, especially p86 overclocking the card, but the card is already overclocked by default.
However, don’t expect to be able to play the latest DirectX based games at high resolutions.
Pffft, my GT calinre hand that it’s ass plus I’m volt-modded, so it would really be a whooping. We gained one extra frame in Half-Life, p8860 in Call of Juarez we actually dropped 0. As such, it’s not worth overclocking this card any more than it already is. Doesnt seem like a smart thing, but if they can pull it off, imagine the possibilities. Users can switch between the two clock speed profiles by pressing the turbo button on the metal expansion bracket above DVI ports.
SPARKLE Calibre P Turbo Launched | TechPowerUp
To get even more out of the card, we used nTune to overclock the processor to MHz. Its cooler isn’t unique, it’s simply a heat sink with a large surface area and a small fan, but its calibrw is overclocked and the card does have a novelty — a LED display panel is attached to the circuit board, which lets you know what temperature the GeForce GT processor is running.
I’d say they’re just wasting space with this calire, if they’re going to make it blank out a second slot, then they may aswell make use of that space for a bigger, better cooler.
It features a MHz processor and a MHz memory speed. To read the LED display, the case will have to be open, or you’ll need to have a windowed side panel.
However, overclocked cards, cards with unique cooling designs and other incentives do exist, and Sparkle’s Calibre P is one of those cards. It also infringes slightly on the space of the adjacent expansion slot, which could affect the installation of full-height add-in cards.
The switch determines what bios is loaded and therefore what clocks it runs. Its a dual bios card.

It’s an ideal card to run a high-definition display panel or TV. The Calibre P Turbo graphics card features dual video BIOSes, each containing different core, memory and stream processors clock settings. At these overclocked speeds, the processor was reported to be 52 degrees when idle, while it hovered around 70 degrees under a full processing load.
