Here are some of the first pictures of an Inno3D branded GeForce GT 740 graphics card, the GT 740 iChill. Based on a custom-design PCB, the card features a strong VRM (by GK107 requirements), which draws power from a 6-pin PCIe power connector. It features 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, across a 128-bit wide memory interface. Confirming that the GT 740 is based on the GK107, the marketing poster leaked to the web reads its ASIC string to be "GK107-425." It's configured with 384 CUDA cores, 32 TMUs, and 16 ROPs. The GPU is clocked at 1100 MHz (a factory-overclock), while the memory runs at 5.20 GHz (GDDR5-effective).

Cooling the 65W TDP GPU is a similarly overkill iChill HerculeZ 2000 cooler, designed in-house by Inno3D, which uses a dense aluminium fin-stack, to which heat drawn from the GPU, is fed by a pair of 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes, and ventilated by a pair of 100 mm fans. The cooler shroud on which the fans are suspended, can be detached, by simply removing six thumb-screws, letting you clean the heatsink underneath, which has been a USP of Inno3D's cooling solutions. Inno3D also put out its own performance numbers for the card, in which it claims the GT 740 iChill to be faster than previous generation GTX 650 (they're both based on the same chip).



Performance graphs follow.

I wonder if it could work passively. That cooler looks huge.

I wondered they same. But, perhaps parts are cheap and they probably figured a few dollars on aesthetics would drive the sales more than something more practical. Or it really does need that much cooling tech.
