Nvidia's GTS 450 gets fully spec'd

Written by Slobodan Simic

192 CUDA cores and 789MHz GPU clock

We have already seen everything that can be seen regarding the upcoming Nvidia GF106 based GTS 450 card. First there were drawings of the PCB, then the clock speeds and pictures of the GPU, but one thing that eluded the press lines was the number of CUDA cores inside this GF106 GPU. Heise.de managed to score that number as well and according to their sources, GTS 450 will happily run with 192 CUDA cores.

If you somehow managed to miss the info regarding this card, we will give a short recap of all specifications. The upcoming Nvidia GTS 450 card is based on the 40nm GF106 GPU and has a die area of around 240 mm². The GPU has 192 CUDA cores and works at 789MHz for the GPU, 1566MHz for Cuda cores or simply shaders, and 3608MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface. Of course, we are talking about a card that supports DirectX 11, as well as all Nvidia technologies.

This card should compete against AMD's Radeon HD 5700 series, but as it was the case with recently released Nvidia cards, they are "just a bit" too late. If you take a glance at the specs, the GTS 450 might end up faster than the HD 5750 but might end up slower than the HD 5770, a key AMD card in the mainstream market. It is also important not to forget AMD's upcoming HD 6000 series that is looking pretty good on the paper and it's just a few months away.

The Nvidia GTS 450 is scheduled to show up sometime during September. You can find more here.
