They removed the heatsink, why not remove the thermal compound too? Could it be because they don't want us to see the part number on the GPU?

OMG!!! I can't beleive it. It looks SOOO COOL. Look at the performance of that thing. Man it is so fast. It is even soo cool that it doesn't even need a heat sink. /s

Nvidia needs to stop slacking and bring their chips out or show us some performance numbers.

Not much of a leak. It seems more like a desperate cry for attention given all the stuff AMD has been releasing. My last several graphics cards have been Nvidia (9800, 6800, Ion). Now I have an AMD 7950. Sorry Nvidia. I wanted to go Sandy Bridge E and you didn't have an option for me. I love what Nvidia has been doing in the tablet space, but they really stepped in it with their graphics cards. Kepler looks to be in big trouble.

actually they will be out later this month.

http://chinese.vr-zone.com/11480/nvidia-gtx-680-gk-104-final-03062012/

if you dont speak chinese here's that site translated:

NVIDIA no accident, then will be at the end of this month to launch Kepler, GK104, the end game of this spy game.

Pointed out that according to earlier news, NVIDIA will be held in March 12 published a technical 28nm process Kepler, GK 104, that is, the rumors of GTX 680 will be listed for sale on the 23rd.

Specifications section, we have received reliable news that NVIDIA GTX, 680 will have 1536 CUDA cores, graphics clock of 705MHz, the processor clock 1411MHz, the memory part of the persistent use of GDDR5, the capacity part 2048MB, clock part for 3004MHz (6008 data rate) memory interface width is 256-bit.

From the current specifications, it seems difficult to find the GK104 Kepler, the specification is very close to fact, the Radeon HD 7 870.

Whether the timetable for the listing as described above, we can not verify.

Transferred to the mobile device NVIDIA graphics card market, whether it is beautiful victory in this battle for 28nm process?

"According to reports, the 290 mm2 GK104 chip shown in the pictures will be used in GTX650Ti and GTX 660 graphics cards, which will arrive with 448 and 512 activated stream processors, respectively, as well as a core clock of about 850 and 900 MHz. The first Kepler cards are expected to be announced next month."

umm... this runs counter to all the recent news I've heard.

yes.. And there is a rumor supposedly nvidia released secret internal memo's saying GTX 680's are supposed to be released 3/12/2012. Hopefully it's true. Can't wait.

With how close the performance is to the AMD 7xxx's , Im just hoving to see what the pricing will be. Equally, with how much the nVidia fans have been waiting for it, it will probably fail (remember Bulldozer and Ivy Bridge) You can call me a doubter, but ive got a feeling that they wont do too well, and If they do so what. I just want Nvidia to work on the Mobile segment, imagine the possiblilites.

[citation][nom]esrever[/nom]This shows a relatively small die which is a good thing.[/citation]
shinobi has said this in the past, and people need to stop thinking that slight die shrinks will drastically change how well the card/chip will run.

[citation]What we gather from these pictures is that Kepler cards could be huge with potentially high power consumption.[/citation]
Oh God no please don't be a repeat of the first-gen Fermis...

The thing that would make a leak like this interesting is if someone could look at some of the components on the card, like capacitors and such, and gauge the power consumption or other such information. Just showing the card is a bit like showing a picture of some guy leaving the office after working on the card.

smaller die = less cost
