New graphics cards from Nvidia Pascal Cores
Everything indicates that Nvidia is preparing to launch GeForce 1070 GTX and GTX 1080. Recently we wrote about the new cooling for reference models, but this time to the network leaked photos GPU and PCB.
GeForce 1000 GTX will be equipped with completely new graphics processors – they will be based on the new architecture and Pascal will be made in the lower 17-nanometer process technology. The memory does not know too much, but everything indicates that the GeForce will be applied only GDDR5 modules and GDDR5X, while modern memory HBM will only professional Tesla accelerators (eg. Tesla P100).
Recently, the network appeared in a lot of pictures depicting both the circuit board in the area of graphics processors and graphics processors themselves. What can you learn from these pics?
The editors of the site VideoCardz calculated that the core Pascal GP104 has an area of about 330 mm2, and so it is a little smaller than its counterpart from generation Maxwell – Maxwell GM204 model (this is about 400 mm2). You may also suspect that the version GP104-400-A1 has all the units, while GP104-200-A1 has been cropped. Unfortunately, we do not know details about the configuration of core
