As many of you might know about the NVIDIA’s launching of their next graphics card during their GeForce Gaming celebration 2018. We have gotten our hands on the convincing images connoting towards the possible PCB for the expected GPU. Interestingly, it brings with it a number of promising features for the better performance than its predecessor. However, keep this in mind that it still is a presumption based on the information gathered from the leaked images of this PCB. Nonetheless, we are confident to claim this as the final production sample by NVIDIA, why is that? let us find it out from the layout of this PCB.
It is easily conspicuous from the front view of this PCB that it has 8 memory modules for GDDR6 neatly placed around the central pin layout for the GPU itself. Now, these GDDR6 can be 8 gigabyte or a ferocious 16 gigabytes of video memory spurring on our anticipation for a high-quality graphics experience. Taking a look at the right side of this set up is a tightly placed 10 phase VRAM which could be pretty power hungry, supposedly the 8 phases could be for the GPU and the remaining 2 could be the home for GDDR6. On the top left corner, we can see a heartening addition of a new 6 pinned PCIe power connector along with an 8-pinned PCIe power connector. This is an upgrade from the previous 1080 model which had only one 8-pin PCIe power connector. Moving further on to the right side of the PCB, we can appreciate 3 display ports and one HDMI 2.0. If you look closely, you’ll see a port for USB Type-c for Virtual link connector! Lastly, the stunning SLI finger upgrade will mark an uphill shift in multi-GPU scaling with expected 90 to 100 percent scaling much required for the 4K HDR 144Hz G-Sync monitors 65 inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync BFGD TVs. We won’t be having DVI output on this PCB.
Now, the reason behind our certainty for this PCB being the final production sample by NVIDIA comes to light when we take a look at the back of this. We can clearly see the certifications from FCC and what not. NVIDIA wouldn’t send out this PCB for approval if it wasn’t the final product.
