New Nvidia GF100 PCB shows up

Written by Slobodan Simic

Looks like full GF100 512

Quite a few pictures of what appears to be a new reference Fermi PCB have showed up online, and according to all the details, this looks like the PCB for the "uncrippled" GF100 with full 512 CUDA cores and 64 ROPs.

The best evidence are the two 8-pin PCI-Express connectors which should  be enough for the power-hungry GF100. Pictures feature a watermark from AIB partner Little Tiger and in addition to two 8-pin PCI-Express connectors, you can also see a more powerful VRM with high-C surface-mount capacitors.

The new card would most likely end up to be the Geforce GTX 485 and full specs include 512 CUDA cores, 64 ROPs, a slightly higher clock speeds set at 720MHz for the core and 1440MHz for Shaders, and the same 1536MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 384-bit memory interface and clocked at 924MHz.

According to the reports, this one should show up during the fall 2010. You can find more here.

Update: According to the comments made by macblastin down in our comments section, it looks like that this one is nothing more than a pumped-up version of the GTX 480 with a better VRM and more power. Nevertheless, it would be interesting to see how far will this one be able to overclock and how much power will it actually need.

Will it draw more power than PCI-E spefications (which is limited by 300Watts per slot)?

Its not a new reference design by Nvidia, i guess that should be pretty obvious since its an AIB partner and not Nvidia who is designing/making it. If it were a GTX 485 that would mean a Nvidia reference design.

Here are links to articles explaining Little tiger is making a non-reference GTX 480 and not some "fabled" 512 core GF100 based card.

links to articles about Little Tiger non-reference GTX 480 which the PCB in the article above if for.


The mad thing is if you go to Lil Tigers site they show this PCB as a GTX 480.

Ah the Grillforce 480 the way its meant to be grilled, oh wait I meant incinerated.

As a Nvidia fan and a collector in general I cringe at the sight of this card, just look at it two 8pin connectors since it is going to set records once it comes out for a single gpu. Well in my climate all I need now is some distilled water and I got a sauna :o

Now this PCB really looks top of the line. I wish my 480s had this kind of headroom to OC. This PCB is asking to be thrown under water. :o

who wants another overpriced, boiling hot card?

Id trade my GTX 480 for it now. If your in the market to buy a GTX480 who cares if your PC can be used as a oven/range as long as my PC is stable and smoking fast.
