Okay, this one is a big green monster appearance, the NVIDIA GK110 Kepler GPU, we spotted today some informations about it, named a "big kepler" as many want to call it, the GK110 GPU will be used on the new Tesla K20 graphic card which is supposed to take appearance next Q4 2012
The NVIDIA GK110 Kepler is currently aimed for professional market priority to be used on the Tesla products, but there are some rumors says that the new GPU can be equipped inside an Nvidia Geforce GTX 685 later this year, about the known specifications, the GK110 will pack a whooping 3072 Shader processors according to the latest informations (that's the same number of shaders units on the GeForce GTX 690) and might use up to 16 SMX cores, that require a big die size and we guess that it may achieve up to 550mm2.
The GK110 GPU will use 28nm process technology, the GPU will feature a powerful parallel abilities with an increase in double precision performance over a comparable Fermi core and also a high level dynamic parallelism, in addition to the Hyper Q technology which allow the GPU cores to perform up to 32 concurrent work queues Vs one for the "Fermi".
- 7.1 Billion Transistors
- 2880 or 3072 Shader processors
- 15/16 SMX (shader engines with 192 Shader-ALUs)
- 384-Bit wide GDDR5 memory bus
- require 6-Pin & 8-Pin power connectors for Tesla K20-cards
- Power consumption: 250W to 300W
- Up to 3x higher double precision
The performance of the GK110 is expected to be around 50% faster than the Geforce GTX 680, the release date is expected to happen on August 2012, that's all we got about this chip today, waiting for official confirmation or any update.
