Alleged Geforce GTS 450 PCB shows up

Written by Slobodan Simic

GF106 is a square chip

Guys from Expreview.com managed to find a picture of the alleged Geforce GTS 450 PCB that was published at PCinlife forum and which shows at least some details regarding the upcoming GF106 based card.

Unlike the GF104, it looks like the GF106 is a square chip and the PCB also shows a six memory chip configuration as well as the 3+1-phase power design. Bear in mind that there has already been rumours that partners will be able to make their own cards from day one. Other noted features include a single 6-pin PCI-E power connector, single SLI connector.

It is still unclear if the PCB is the actual Geforce GTS 450 or some other card based on the same GPU, as there was rumours that the GTS 450 might come with 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The backside features two DVI and mini-HDMI outputs.

You can check out the pictures here.

192-bit bus makes more sense and this picture only stress this fact.

Think about it
GF100, 512SP - 384 bit
GF106, 256SP - 192 bit

Price war please, I need to buy DX11 cards for my gaming shop, the problem is too pricey compared to previous generation.

meegoreng,

Another possibility would be GF106 = GF104/2. That is, 192SP & 128 bit bus. That would make it 512MB or 1GB.

Most sense would make it if the visionable 6 chips got 128MB each.
So we get to 768MB GDDR(5) i think.

I don´t know about chips with 170.66MB or 85.33MB each.

Something like that doesn't exist , also a F106 is the lowest possible end that makes sense - if the F108 ends much smaller and slower than this one - it would be useless.

Well, maybe useless to gamers, but all those off the shelf computers need graphics cards too, the mainstream ones with low end discrete graphics. that are still much better than most onboard solutions.

Granted it's useless for me, I'm just pointing out not everyone needs high end or even performance class GPUs, and there are still people that need something better than onboard.

so as we can see @ expreview, this 6-chip-design will be at 768MB
