RumorTT: Kepler keeps on giving: GK106 specifications leaked

Rumor: GK106 specifications have been leaked. Launch should be in Q3 of 2012.

Time for another rumor, so go ahead, get the salt out and throw some over your shoulder, and for good measure, find some wood and knock on it. Now that we're done with that, let's move onto the goods. We have what we believe to be the specifications for the Kepler based GK106. This chip should end up being a direct competitor to the HD 7950, HD 7870, GTX 560 Ti, GTX 560 Ti 448 and GTX 560.

The specifications are said to be as follows:

 

  • 28nm TSMC lithography based on Kepler
  • 210mm2 die size
  • Two GPC
  • Four SMX
  • 768 CUDA cores
  • 64 texture units
  • 24 ROPs
  • 1.5/2GB RAM
  • 192-bit memory interface
  • No frequencies have been specified

 

The card is expected to land in Q3 of 2012 which is still a fair distance off but could be just in time for the summer upgrade season. If it performs anywhere like the GTX 680, we should have another good card on our hands. It will be interesting to see if they price it at a competitive price like they did with the GTX 680.
