Sparkle Demos Quad-Display GTX 580 GPU, Boothbabe Models Android 3.0 Tablet

By , Andrea Ferrario - Tom's Hardware Italy - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 30 comments

Sparkly new GPU and Tablet, powered by Nvidia.

Sparkle had its Calibre X580 Captain video card on display, which has five video outputs (three DisplayPort and two DVI) but can only use four of them to drive four monitors simultaneously. It's not completely official yet, but Sparkle says that it'll be out late June at a price of around $529.

Also on display is the Calibre WHDI, which can stream audio and video from a PC to a display without cable over a wireless connection (WHDI).This product should have a price of $199  when it arrives late September.

Surprising was Sparkle's tablet entry, which it calls the X-Pad. It's powered by a Tegra 2, features a 10.1 inch screen and runs Android Honeycomb. It's got a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 2 megapixel on the front. From the pictures we can see a decent number of I/O ports, though full functionality of all of them is still unknown. This one is also slated for September.

    All Tablets today essentially = Tergra 2, 1GB ram, 16 or 32GB, 5mp camera, 1.3 mp front camera, 7 or 10.1" display... (minus the last generation and cheap sub-$200 entries).
