NVIDIA GeForce Kepler GK107 Reference Board Sketched

NVIDIA's GeForce Kepler 107 (GK107) will go into making several of its entry-thru-mainstream SKUs, such as N13 GeForce M GPUs for notebooks, and N14 Quadro GPUs for professional graphics cards, but more importantly, it will also go into making the D14 GeForce 600 series discrete PC graphics cards for the retail and OEM markets. A CGI sketch of the reference design board was leaked to the web, which found its way to VR-Zone, which reports that the GK107 will be used in two desktop PC discrete graphics SKUs: D14M2-20, and D14P1-10, based on the GK107-200 (512 MB DDR3) and GK107-300 (GDDR3/GDDR5) variants of the chip, respectively.

The sketched GK107 graphics card appears to be similar to the GF108-based GeForce GT 440 board. The GPU will feature a 128-bit wide DDR3/GDDR3/GDDR5 memory interface. Its cooler design is similar, with a 11-blade axial fan, and a heatsink with spirally-projecting aluminum fins. Apparantly legacy D-Sub support will be dropped for the first DVI-I connector. There will be two dual-link DVI connectors, and a mini-HDMI.
