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.

TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.5.9 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information and diagnostic utility. GPU-Z briefs you on the graphics hardware installed in the system, and lets you monitor clock speeds, voltages, temperatures, fan-speeds, and other information in real-time. The new version adds full-support for AMD's Radeon HD 7700 series "Cape Verde" GPUs (HD 7770 and HD 7750) that are bound for launch a little later this month. The new version also has an updated ASIC Quality calculation formula that makes reading on NVIDIA GPUs more reliable.

Other important updates include voltage monitoring support for Radeon HD 7970 and HD 7950; support for some rare GeForce GT 520 variants that are based on GF108, GeForce GTX 555 (OEM), GeForce 305M, and GeForce 610M; and more reliable memory size reading for AMD Radeon graphics cards with large memory sizes. Sensors now refresh in the background by default (and not just when the Sensors tab is in the foreground). The board ID is now displayed along with the BIOS version string.

AFOX Unveils its GeForce GT 530 Graphics Card

Hong Kong-based NVIDIA AIC partner AFOX is ready with a graphics card based on GeForce GT 530, a GPU unheard of, till now. Some specifications were also leaked out. The GeForce GT 530 from AFOX has core clocked at 750 MHz, GDDR3 memory clocked at 1333 MHz (2.66 GHz DDR) and memory amounts of 1 GB and 2 GB. Its CUDA core count is unknown, but we don't expect it to be higher than 96 (GF108 CUDA core count). The card relies entirely on the PCI-Express bus for power, it lacks SLI support, and display outputs include one each of D-Sub, HDMI, and DVI. It is expected to be priced around US $100.

With more than 2x the DirectX 11 geometry processing power over competing product, the SPARKLE GeForce GT 430 512MB Graphics Card dominate the competition and offers amazing game realism on the latest DirectX 11 titles like Civilization V. Equipped with the latest industry leading technologies including NVIDIA 3D Vision, NVIDIA PhysX, high performance NVIDIA GeForce drivers, and more, the SPARKLE GeForce GT 430 512MB Graphics Card has everything mainstream users need to spoil their senses.

Point of View Intros its Low-Profile GeForce GT 430 Graphics Card

Point of View kicked of its GeForce GT 430 lineup with a custom-design graphics card. The card sticks to NVIDIA's reference design as far as the PCB goes, but uses a [seemingly] more cost-effective GPU cooling solution. The card is low-profile, and makes extra-room for a D-Sub connector with its full-height bracket on. Other connectors include DVI and HDMI. Like every other GeForce GT 430, Point of View's card is based on the 40 nm GF108 GPU, it is DirectX 11 compliant, and has 96 CUDA cores, a 128-bit wide DDR3 memory interface holding 1 GB of memory, and clock speeds that stick to NVIDIA's reference speeds: 700/1400/1600 MHz (core/shader/memory). A slightly faster variant based on the same exact design is also available, it just has the memory clocked 200 MHz higher. Expect standard pricing for this card.

Sparkle Announces a Wide Range of GeForce GT 430 Graphics Cards

SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today announced six SPARKLE GeForce GT 430 Graphics Cards, bringing unparalleled levels of price/performance to mainstream users. SPARKLE provides two thermal solution options beyond standard fan version of the SPARKLE GeForce GT 430 Graphics Cards.

GeForce GT 430 graphics card with one-slot cooling design to saves the chassis space. It uses the Aluminum Extrusion technology to form the heat sink of the cooler at once, so that the heat sink can transfer the heat with more continuities. The cooler use centrifugal fan structure, to make wind pressure more stronger and more concentrated to get quicker cooling effects.

New NVIDIA GeForce GT 430 Is the Perfect GPU for Digital Media PCs

NVIDIA today announced the latest addition to its Fermi class of graphics processing units (GPUs), the NVIDIA GeForce GT 430, which was specifically designed to provide the horsepower needed to power today's digital media PCs and provide the high definition video and audio experiences that desktop customers demand.

The GeForce GT 430 utilizes the Company's latest 40nm GPU, codenamed GF108, which is already designed into a variety of desktop and notebook platforms from the world's leading OEMs, including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony and others. For customers looking for a viable desktop upgrade from lowly integrated solutions, the GeForce GT 430 is a major step up, delivering unparalleled experiences in photo and video editing, Blu-ray 3D, as well as the next generation of GPU-accelerated Web browsers and Web content. And, when combined with NVIDIA 3D Vision technology and a compatible display, the GT 430 is also the only GPU in its class that allows consumers to experience their digital content in full stereoscopic 3D.

Listing Reveals Details of GeForce GT 430 Desktop GPU

An Austrian hardware vendor jumped the gun and listed an unannounced GeForce GT 430 graphics card by Gigabyte, the GV-N430OC-1GI. As the model name suggests, it is overclocked out of the box. Tiny bits of details given in the listing shows that the card has 1 GB of DDR3 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface, and connectors that include one each of DVI and HDMI. Additional detailed mentioned by a price aggregator reveals that GeForce GT 430 is based on the 40 nm GF108 core, the SKU has 96 CUDA cores and 16 TMUs.

NVIDIA Slips in GeForce GT 420 Desktop Graphics Card

Without making any public announcement (because it's not meant for retail sale), NVIDIA listed its GeForce GT 420 graphics card. This product is available to OEMs only. The GT 420 is derived from the Fermi architecture, and is fully compliant with the latest PC graphics technologies, including DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4. NVIDIA's reference design is low-profile and single-slot, it draws all its power from the PCI-Express slot.

Under the hood is a 40 nm graphics core (perhaps GF108), it has 48 CUDA cores, and connects to 2 GB of memory across a 128-bit wide DDR3 memory interface, with 28.8 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The core is clocked at 700 MHz, CUDA cores at 1400 MHz, and memory at 900 MHz (1800 MHz effective). Display outputs include DVI, HDMI (full-size), and a detachable D-Sub connector. The card has a maximum power draw of 50W. Later down the line, one can expect NVIDIA to make a consumer GeForce SKU with the same specifications.

NVIDIA's New Entry-Level GF108 GPU Pictured

Barely a day after the first pictures emerged of NVIDIA's GF106 GPU that will serve as the foundation of various mainstream SKUs, its even smaller sibling, the GF108, has come to light. Available to NVIDIA partners as qualification sample, the GF108 is a small GPU in terms of package size. The die measures around 127 mm², which is about 23% bigger than that of AMD's entry-level Redwood GPU which makes various ATI Radeon HD 5500/5600 series SKUs.

On the engineering sample card it's pictured on, the GPU has a plastic supportive-brace, and is neighboured by four Hynix-made DDR3 memory chips. No SKUs have yet been named that are based on this GPU, though it is expected that a certain SKU based on this will be comparable to the GeForce GT 240 in terms of performance, and compete with AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5500/5600 series.
