Nvidia GF100: Fermi running in SLI setup
A new picture of Nvidia's forthcoming graphics card generation, codename Fermi, has been published.
Some days ago it had been revealed that Nvidia's Fermi would have three billion transistors. But this actually hadn't been big news, since this piece of information had already been around since September. Nevertheless Nvidia has now released a new picture of the next generation graphics cards. It shows Tom Petersen, Nvidia head of Marketing, presenting a water cooled PC with two graphics cards in SLI setup. The cards pictured are quite similar to the one presented as GF100 with Fermi chip - so apparently Nvidia has at least two working devices. ;-)
Nvidia has furthermore confirmed that the GF100 which has been pictured while rendering the Unigine Engine benchmark, is 10.5 inches long and thus has the same size as the graphics cards of the Geforce GTX 200 series. This piece of information has been published on Facebook.
In metrical system this means the card is 26.7 centimeters long which would exactly be as long as a Geforce GTX 285 with the default layout. Thus the GF100 Fermi would be shorter than Nvida's current dual GPU flagship Geforce GTX 295, which is 27 centimeters long, and also shorter than AMD's current single GPU top dog Radeon HD 5870 which is 28 centimeters long.
