Nvidia GP104 GPU Die Pictured; Inside The Heart Of The GTX 1070
If you wanted to see what is inside your GeForce GTX 1070 but never had the guts to open it up then now you do not have to. Let us do the work for you and you can enjoy these images without sweating. Inside the GTX 1070, you find the GP104 GPU die.
Inside the GP104 GPU die, you find four Graphics Processing Clusters, each of which is made up of five Streaming Multiprocessors, each of which is in turn made up of 128 CUDA cores and sixteen Texture Mapping Units. In total, what you are dealing with here is 2560 CUDA cores, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. There is also a 256bit memory controller and 8GB of GDDR5X memory.
GP104 GPU die pictures show the complexity of the architecture and you can now see why developing and making these GPUs cost so much. Nvidia’s Senior Architect, Lars Nyland admitted that the 16nm process has played an important role in the making of this GP104 GPU die.
The new version of the GTX 1080, the GTX 1080 Ti is exptected to come out in 2017. The GPU will feature over 3000 CUDA cores and power that will be near the Titan XP. We are excited about the release of the upcoming model and expect it to be a high performance GPU aimed at 4K gaming.
The GP104 GPU die is a thing of beauty and a work of art, so to speak. I am sure every tech head in their right mind can admire and appreciate the GP104 GPU die in all its glory. We appreciate it just as much and think that it is something to marvel at.
Let us know what are your thoughts about the GP104 GPU die. Also let us know what you think about the upcoming GTX 1080 Ti and whether or not it will also feature the same die.
