A Closer Look
NVIDIA's cooler is reasonably simple. A large slab of metal with a copper base handles any heat produced by the GPU.
The card requires a single 6-pin PCI-Express power cable for operation. This power configuration is good for up to 150 W of power draw.
NVIDIA uses an OnSemi NCP5395 voltage controller. We have seen this controller on many designs before. It is a cost effective solution that does not provide any I2C, so advanced monitoring is not possible.
The GDDR5 memory chips are made by Samsung and carry the model number K4G20325FD-FC03. They are specified to run at 1500 MHz (6000 MHz GDDR5 effective).
NVIDIA's GK106 processor is produced on a 28 nm at TSMC, Taiwan. The transistor count is 2.54 billion.
