China seems to be a place where leaks are high and NDA doesn’t matter. It’s been happening for a while. Some people don’t like, some people do. Oh well, to each of their own!
A source from China posted pictures of an unknown graphic card model with Nvidia GM200. It is assumed that GPUs powered with GM200 core would be the ‘most powerful’ and largest GPU ever to be made. What’s unclear is that whether the GPU core would be used in GeForce Lineup or available as a Quadro solution. The card seems to be using 24 chips of Hynix H5GQ4H24MFR-R2C GDDR5 memory, each containing 4Gb capacity.
It should be noted that judging by the pictures of the PCB, this card’s reference version may use a 5-port design consisting of HDMI and multiple Display Ports. As you can see, there is a lack of DVI connector. Death to the DVI?
It is assumed that Nvidia GM200 core will be using 3072 stream processors, along with 192 texture units, 96 raster operation pipeline and a 384-bit memory bus. It is also speculated that the GM200 will be producing 34 percent performance boost in comparison with Nvidia GeForce GTX 980. However, as of now, nothing is confirmed- especially when it is assumed that GM200 is made specifically for Quadro lineups. The only supporting evidence is the pictures of the die and the surrounding PCB layout.
