At long last, initial photos of the GT300, NVIDIA’s revolutionary new video card has been unvieled for the world to see, and to photograph!
At the NVIDIA GTC conference being hosted today in San Jose, Hardware Canucks got the chance to cover the event in hopes we would see the long awaited video card rear its head, and show itself it did!
Thankfully this thing doesn’t appear to be a behmoth like the competition. It takes a practical approach and simple dual slot cooler, however this is said to be the Telsa model and therefore intended for workstations and GPU computing tasks, rather than gaming. It is suspected that the final product for desktops will look slightly different. The card also features only a single DVI port, but again, likely for the reasons mentioned above. It would appear that the card is powered solely by a single 8-pin PCIe power connector at the back of the card, bringing questions about the rumoured high power requirement of the card.
The images below feature NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang holding the card and imaged on a 3D screen (hence the blur).
Update: Pictures have been added of shots of the card itself close up, as well as the physical Fermi chip.
