Nevertheless, the setup scored 20,687 in 3DMark 05 (1024x768), and 16,595 in 06 (1280x1024).

Sparkle unveil Calibre 8800 GT with LCD display

The Calibre P888+ isn't the first board from Sparkle to include their GPD2 daughter display - which shows temperatures, voltages and fan speeds etc - as they also recently unveiled a similar 8600 GTS. The screen isn't the board's only selling point though, as it also includes a heatpipe-based cooler with two 80mm fans (resulting in a dual-slot design). The card is factory overclocked to 675MHz/1000MHz, with the shaders operating at 1728Mhz.
