NVIDIA GP107 ASIC Pictured, Die Smaller than a Dime

Here are some of the first pictures of the incredibly tiny "GP107" silicon, on which NVIDIA plans to build the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050. Pictures of a yet to be released graphics card based on this chip were leaked to the web, revealing a postage-stamp size GPU package, with its die smaller still (about 1 cm² die-area, if we're not mistaken).

It's been rumored that the GP107 could be built on the 14 nm process, by Samsung. The ASIC in the pictures are surrounded by four GDDR5 memory chips, sitting across its 128-bit wide memory interface. The GTX 1050 Ti features 4 GB of standard memory amount. Although the chip's TDP is rated to be 75W, AIC partners could give these cards 6-pin PCIe power connectors, just to be on the safe side.

That's for the GPU. The memory needs a fair bit of power, too, so it needs that extra connector. A connector which, I should point out, can be clearly visible in the pic #1 xP

smallest chip, empty pcb, performance so low as it would make console "gamers" proud.... and it will cost 150$... not 50$ as it should
I probably go ape crazy if they sold it for any where under 100 bucks. Especially if it can fold at or over my 960 that OC over 1500MHz.

I have yet to touch any Pascals because of their price. Instead, I been nabbing used CPUs and mobos to tame my hardware craving. Though, now on the hunt for a new PSU since the one in the folder just die today.

Can I have this on an AGP interface while we're at it?

No, that would be ridiculous. But might I interest you in the 4CoreDual series by ASRock? (i have one :D)

With an overclock it's close to R9 290, consoles aren't anywhere near that, you know that right?
Close to 290 eh? Seriously?

Dear God, where do these guys loaded with this...

In FS:E this card scores 3800 and 290 scores 4600. With a 10-15% overclock, it's near a 290.

With a chip that small with that low of a TDP, there had better be some low profile 1050ti's.
