Sparkle announces FX5500/5700LE solutions
Without any NVIDIA announces, Taiwanese Sparkle announced shipments of its two new graphics cards on yet unannounced FX5500 and FX5700LE.
I can´t say there´s nothing known on these GPUs, as some information leaked as far back as a month ago. But today we are going to provide some more precise data.
So, FX5500 is based on NV31 core, while FX5700LE is a slower-clock version of NV36. Novelties on both chips are expected closer to the month-end for below $85.
As for the new cards, you can estimate their performance judging by the table below:
According to all of the above, I can hardly see the sense in releasing such solutions. Maybe it´s low price or overclocking capabilities, but anyway be ready for a wave of "higher-performance" fakes that usually accompanies downgrade releases.
And here are the card photos:
