Well here we go again, and as we know leaks happen and rumours escalate, only this time we are being drip fed what is believed to be an engineering sample of the upcoming GeForce GTX 880... Well is it really?
So lets take a real good look at the leaked images, the first thing I focused on were the GDDR5 chips mmmm I do like chips, but these old 2013 Hynix H5GQ4H24MFR-RC2 chips are not to be scoffed at, these 7.0Gbps 512MB double-sided modules really add some high resolution crunching muscle with a maximum of 8GB on this particular "Sample".
Now we should focus on the GPU die itself, well we sort of knew this was coming but what would the allocation number be, GM210 or GM204??? Well if rumours are true with yet more leaked information via a Taiwan shipping manifest these are believed to be Part # GM204-A1... but all we really know from the leaked images is that this particular die was manufactured on the 21st week of 2014 (1421A1).
Well onto Power and by the looks of the PCIe power sockets, she needs juice! 375W by my estimation with 2x 6pin & 1x 8pin, tells me that this card will be no slouch in the performance department.
PCB Connectivity we see the usual PCIe slot and we also see 3way & 4way SLI support.
Anyway not really much more to say as it's just a leaked (oops) engineering "Sample".
So what do we think?
