Nvidia GF108 pixellized and sized

Written by Slobodan Simic
geforce

127mm² die size

After the picture of alleged GF106 GPU that we've seen last week, it was time for the GF108 to share its part of glory.

The chip on the picture is an engineering sample marked as GF108-200-A1 and measures at around 127mm². The pixellized PCB also shows four Hynix branded memory chips. The GF108 should appear in retail sometimes during September, at least according to latest Nvidia plans.

The bigger picture can be found over at Expreview.com.

127mm2 is a bit large if this is suppose to be a budget card.
its larger then the hd5570-hd5670(110mm2) but a bit smaller then the hd57xx(170mm2)

edit : wikipedia says 110.

I believe Redwood (HD 5570/5670) is only 100mm², not 110mm².

i believe that redwood is between 100mm² and 110mm². either way, nvidia is still on to a loser. performance needs to be around 9600gt, which they're not gonna achieve with ddr3 on a 128bit bus. this'll probably be somewhere inbetween the hd5570 and the hd5670 in terms of performance, which use a smaller chip. it'll then face southern islands low-end range early next year, up against which it'll probably have no chance.

It seems you're right, it's 104mm² according to the Tech Report: http://techreport.com/articles.x/18288/3

And I agree that 100 or 110mm², the point still stands. :P

The 5670 is faster than the 9600 GT.
