The lucky folks over at Tweakers.net have become the first to get their hands on NVIDIA's next prize, the top notch GTX 480. While not being given the ability to test the card out, they did get a chance to strip it down and take several shots of it in naked form to give a better idea of what the card is all about.

Confirming previous reports, we can se the chunky sized 40nm GF100 core with IHS nestled in the centre region surrounded by 12 GDDR5 memory chips totalling 1536MB.

Other specs include a 384-bit memory interface, a most probable 512 CUDA cores, two PCI-E power connectors (one 6-pin and one 8-pin), up to 3-way SLI support and dual DVI + mini-HDMI outputs on the rear.

We can also see from these shots that the GPU is powered by a 6-phase circuit using DPAK MOSFETs and 2 phases for the vMem circuit.

The reference cooler looks very capable and is as chunky as one would expect it to be for a card of this calibre, using one fan and four heatpipes.
