Specifications compiled for Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce Kepler 104 and 100

Last month saw the roadmap for Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce Kepler GPU compiled, and now knowing the release date of AMD’s Tahiti, looking back at what Nvidia has in store, it seems that the GeForce Kepler 104 (GK104) is the one to stand up against AMD’s first next-gen GPU of the year 2012.
GK104 will be the high-performance GPU from Nvidia and it will be equipped with many features that Nvidia reserved for the previous high-end GPUs. However, the GK104 is not going to be Nvidia’s most powerful GPU, the spot has already been reserved for the GK100 that will be designed according to the company’s “go all in” ideology for its high-end GPUs.
3DCenter.org did the honor of compiling a few specifications for the GK104 as well as the GK100.
Here is what it sounds like:
- 640 to 768 CUDA cores
- 80 to 96 TMUs (depending on what the CUDA core count ends up being)
- 384-bit GDDR5 memory interface, 48 ROPs
- Built on the 28 nm TSMC process
- Products based on this will launch in the first quarter of 2012
- 1024 CUDA cores
- 128 TMUs
- 512-bit GDDR5 memory interface, 64 ROPs
These specifications may certainly have an impact on potential buyers of AMD’s upcoming 7900 series.
Market competition aside, these certainly seem to be some impressive specifications which clearly spell out next-gen.
