NVIDIA's New Entry-Level GF108 GPU Pictured

Barely a day after the first pictures emerged of NVIDIA's GF106 GPU that will serve as the foundation of various mainstream SKUs, its even smaller sibling, the GF108, has come to light. Available to NVIDIA partners as qualification sample, the GF108 is a small GPU in terms of package size. The die measures around 127 mm², which is about 23% bigger than that of AMD's entry-level Redwood GPU which makes various ATI Radeon HD 5500/5600 series SKUs.

On the engineering sample card it's pictured on, the GPU has a plastic supportive-brace, and is neighboured by four Hynix-made DDR3 memory chips. No SKUs have yet been named that are based on this GPU, though it is expected that a certain SKU based on this will be comparable to the GeForce GT 240 in terms of performance, and compete with AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5500/5600 series.

definitely. no company's ever put more than that on entry level graphics. the 9600GSO was mainstream at release so that doesn't count :P.

so its gonna have 128SP's yet perform worse than or around GT 240 level's. Nice, more products from nvidia that are less efficient per sp than the G200 core.

Mainly I was just thinking if it's dust it might tell you something about the cooler air flow and or shroud shape, but they might not have the reference cooler finalized yet.

I just hope it'll out perform the 9600 GT and perform very close to 9800 GT.

What the heck is wrong with Fermi? Why are cards with more processing power on paper have the performance of cards with lesser paper stats from the G200 era? Not really very related to this chip, just a general rant...

Is it like a £2 coin, because I can't figure out the size of the chip then.
