Nvidia GF100 Die shots

A forum member, emotion, at Chinese hardware website Ngacn.cc has leaked pictures of the much guarded GF100 die. They have also managed to flip open the heatspreader and clicked pictures of the die inside. Not only that, they even managed to measure the die size, which is now reportedly approximately 530 mm2.

A forum member, emotion, at Chinese hardware website Ngacn.cc has leaked
pictures of the much guarded GF100 die. They have also managed to flip
open the heatspreader and clicked pictures of the die inside. Not only
that, they even managed to measure the die size, which is now reportedly
approximately 530 mm2.

That die size is remarkably consistent with the rumours that have originated from last year, especially Charlie’s articles over at SemiAccurate. It is easy to see why Nvidia have been struggling. 530 mm2 is simply too gargantuan for a trouble process, let alone one Nvidia have little previous experience with. On the bright side, this also puts to rest recent doom and gloom rumours of 600+ mm2.

The nomenclature on the dies are quite peculiar, though they are all A3 steppings, which is the retail revision.

All the die shots can be viewed at emotion’s thread over at Ngacn.cc.
