Nvidia Next-Gen GPU PCB leaks - 12GB of GDDR6 memory

Is this a test PCB for a future Geforce GPU?

Nvidia Next-Gen GPU PCB leaks - 12GB of GDDR6 memory

The PCB of a new Nvidia test-GPU has leaked online, revealing Nvidia's first graphics card with GDDR6 memory, making this a potential test bed for the company's rumoured next-generation "Turing" architecture. 

At this time little is known about this graphics card aside from its twelve 8Gb GDDR6 memory modules, which are all created by Micron and have a part number of 8BA77 D9WCW, which means that these modules are designed to deliver 14Gbps speeds each, which over twelve chips on a 384-bit bus equate to a total memory bandwidth of around 672 GB/s.   

We can also see that this graphics card PCB has an NVLink connection three 8-pin power connections, features which are not uncommon for test boards. This PCB will likely act as a testbed for future Tesla, Quadro and Geforce Graphics cards, with Nvidia's use of a 384-bit memory but pointing towards a GTX 1080 Ti replacement.

Note that this PCB doesn't guarantee that we will see a new 12GB Geforce graphics card from Nvidia anytime soon, as this is clearly a prototyping board and not anything close to a final product.

What is clear from this image is that Nvidia is building something with GDDR6 memory, though it offers no indication of when this prototype will result in a final product.

With all these delays, I do wonder whether this will actually be more than just a 1080Ti replacement and more like the way the 1080 was a replacement to the 980Ti, as in a lot more powerful. To wait two and a half years for essentially a lower TDP version of the same GPU with only a slight price decrease would be... ehhhh... maddening.Quote

Shouldn't that read as follows?

Twelve 8Gb modules would make for a mind bogglingly insane 96Gb of memory....Quote

8 G bit = 1 G byte


So its correct i thinkQuote

you are confusing Gb (Gigabit) and GB (Gigabyte). 8Gb = 1GBQuote

Hey strip out the middle bit (mind bogglingly insane) and my statement would hold true.

Also sod memory manufacturers. that GB Gb BS is such a crappy move. Quote
