NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 670 Short PCB Pictured Up Close

Thanks to the impressive power-draw and temperature figures its GeForce GTX 680 could come up with, NVIDIA's newest SKU based on the 28 nm GK104 silicon, the GeForce GTX 670, will feature a compact PCB. The reverse side of this PCB was first pictured on a Colorful-branded graphics card. A picture of its obverse side was posted earlier today. In comparison to the GTX 680, the GTX 670 PCB is quite short. The eight GDDR5 memory chips are distributed between both the sides, these chips are wired to the GPU over a 256-bit wide memory interface. The VRM area is pushed towards the front-end of the PCB. It consists of a 4+2 phase design. The card draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. There are two SLI bridge connectors, giving it 4-way SLI capability.

Wow.
This thing has the appearances of a low-end card yet apparently it outperforms the competitor's high-end. Die size is somewhere around at 330mm², 10% smaller that of Tahiti at 365mm².

nV will be getting good profit out of these.

I really, really hope the vrm on these cards can stand upto long term use and dont start become this cards achilles heel.

Looks like I've finally found something groundbreaking and worthy of replacing my awesome gtx460's, shame they look like they have the double stacked dvi's though, still will look so sweet in sli with waterblocks

looks like they'll make 1gb variants too for an even more cost effective choice! I'd get the 2gb for sure, but this card sure looks like it has the potential to be a winner! lets see in 2 days :)
