Nvidia GF106 Chip For GeForce GTS 450 Leaked

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.

    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!

    Oh no! Should I go for 2xGTX460 now or still wait for 2xGTX450?

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

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

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.
