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.
