Default What happened to the Sparkle One

What happened to sparkle's single slot 570? Or was it more of a concept?

My System Specs


Maybe they couldn't maintain the Thermal limits or the noise was too much.

A lot of these engineering concepts never really materialize.
I.e. all the concepts we saw for Dual GTS250 cards back in the day I was doing news articles.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
