GT212: Reputed specs of Nvidia GPU sighted
The new information about the specifications of the GT212 GPU supposedly come from sources close to Nvidia.
While GT200(b) GPUs have more than 240 shader ALUs the GT212 chip should offer 384 shader ALUs. The quantity of shader clusters will be raised from ten to twelve. Every shader cluster will supposedly have 32 stream processors instead of 24. The number of texture units per shader cluster therefore will stay the same with 96 TMUs altogether.
Unlike the GT200(b) GPUs the GT212 will probably not have GDDR3 memory but GDDR5 RAM. The memory interface will allegedly have 256 Bit only. The quantity of transistors of the GT212 is supposed to be risen to 1,800 millions.
The 40 nanometer GT212 will probably span less than 300 square millimeters which is slightly half the size of the GT200 GPU. As Hardware-Infos reports the chip shall be released in the second quarter 2009 and shall be produced at a reasonable price.
