Nvidia GF106 Chip For GeForce GTS 450 Leaked

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 48 comments

Another Fermi in the pipe.

Nvidia is set to roll out another Fermi-based product to fill out its product lineup. Spotted on Chinese rumor site ZOL is the GF106 which is supposed to power the GeForce GTS 440, 445, and 450.

Impressively, ZOL managed to secure an actual chip shot of the GF106, which measured an approximate 15.2mm to 15.7mm across.

According to the report, the chip was supposed to launch this month, but has been pushed back to September. Pricing is expected to be in the neighbourhood of $150 to $170, at least for the GTS 450, and it'll be open to custom designs from OEMs.

Last month, the blueprints for the chip were leaked at another Chinese site.

    hell_storm2004GTX460 SLI would beat GTS450 SLI any day. So if you have the budget go for GTX460 SLI day. Equals HD5970 and costs $100 less!

    ...there's a much larger difference in price then that. The GTX460 1GB SLI can be found for around $460, while the HD5970 is still closer to $690. In most cases there's over a $200 difference.

    nVidia! Keep pushing your launch dates and Southern Islands will push you out of the market.

    ...or, you could just buy a hd5770 now, like most people have done in this price range.

    September? That's too long! I think its pushed back mainly because of the success of the GTX460!

    If it is priced like the 5770 and performs like the 4870/4890, then it'll be one hell of a card.

    Its no longer news. Its leaking instead. So much more exiting when its drip drip out of a corner somewhere.... Not really. Just a sign that there is no news worthy news out there. So they are scraping the bottom.

    Ok.
    Low end
    Mid level
    High end

    SLI... well, that's a new level right there really.

    Anything else floods the market and causes confusion. STOP IT!

    Ok in about 4 hours crazy Charlie is going to tell you how this chip sucks, is going to tell you he scooped the size. Say all the same rhetoric he has been spewing for years. Then all his parrots can debate how he's right. A regular Nostradamus.

    I love how people list MSRP prices because those are never used when it comes to graphics cards except when they're at the top of the line for a week, then it starts to seperate. ANY good GTX 460 can be had for 200 USD.
