Sparkle X560 Ti DF Calibre Review
The packaging is a masterpiece of understatement that nicely backs up the "professional graphics card" moniker on the front. We've often remarked how when you're at the higher end of the market, less is more.
The card itself neatly follows this trend of swathes of black with some minor white text to break things up. Two large PWM fans dominate the topside, and the vent holes near the outputs look very nice. Round the back we have a sturdy backplate to make sure that the card remains solid and the heat is spread evenly.
The Calibre branding is discreet although it's quite strange to see that in a standard tower case the Calibre logo by the power inputs will be upside down.
Outputs are the standard GeForce arrangement of an HDMI and two DVI-Ds. It's always nice to see the DVI colour matching the main card, and it's yet another one of those little touches which makes the Sparkle GTX560Ti DF Calibre a treat to look at and enjoy.
