Nvidia Kepler GK107 detailed specifications revealed
Ryan Martin+ / 2 years ago
Nvidia’s GK107 is another one of the 28nm Kepler designs due to be implemented into multiple graphics cards at some point in the near future. The GK107 will appear in a variety of N13 GeForce M GPUs and N14 Quadro M GPUs. In addition, GK107 will also make it to the desktops as D14 or GeForce 600. There will be two variants of the Nvidia GK107:
- GK107-200 GPU which will support both GDDR3 and GDDR5 VRAM
- GK107-300 GPU which will support 512MB of DDR3 RAM.
Taking the first look at the design pictures we can see the overall design very much resembles that of the current GT 440 graphics card. It has identical dimensions and the GK107 therefore seems like it is a direct replacement for the GK108 (which the GT 440 is made from).
Like the GF108, the GK107 will feature a 128-bit memory interface. The heatsink + fan system will also be similar – a shroud-less Coolermaster heatsink with an 11 blade axial fan, albeit with minor modifications for GK107. Legacy VGA output will be dropped for 1 DVI-I DL output, 1 DVI-D or HDMI out, and a third port with either mini-DP or mini-HDMI.
The two variants of GK107 are likely to be branded GeForce GT 6×0, and may well be two of NVIDIA’s final entry-level GPUs with AMD’s A-Series and Intel’s HD IGPs starting to cannibalize the entry-level market.
