"8+6+6 PCI PEG power headers" OMG

I hope it's not another so called "gamer" card that no gamer can actually afford... At least as is. Anyway, wait & see ^^

A lot of engineering samples have stuff like that. It means nothing.

It could be the GTX 880 test pcb. The actual card should release with 8GB. It might also feature some new cooling solution either hybrid or air.

16gb of vram? lol. Surely that's for Quadro or something.

Can't see why they would ever think that 16gb would be needed for gaming, 8 maybe but 16gb?

the power connector is not a problem... on test sample some have even power line outside PCB (mean by cable) it's a "work in progress"...
also they sometime have power con for GPU and another one for mem etc etc...
doesn't mean crazy power watt like on release product.

It could be a 880 based off of a Titan PCB considering this PCB has 16GB of ram. But Who knows at this point.

probably just a test or super rare extreme edition , 750 are the most power effeicient cards and give the best performance for 60W, Maxwell was always meant to put Kepler to shame in all aspects, but power is the main.

Yea this is probably a test card, they are probably testing how much power it draws and at what clocks speeds so they can adjust things accordingly. Having 8+8+6 pin means they have MASSIVE headroom to work with.

If this is Maxwell GTX880 then be sure that it will not launch with anything more than 8+8pin but more than likely 8+6pin like normal. As Maxwell is targeting very lower power consumption.

Unless that extra 6pin connector if for something entirely different and not directly for the GPU core it self? Maybe a second dedicated PhysX or CUDA core????? Hmmmm.... speculation is always a good thing

my guestimate:
  • GM204 (or 104) part
  • 400-ish mm2 die
  • 70%-ish over GTX 770, 10-20% over 780Ti
  • TDP slightly above 680/770
  • 256 bit MC
  • 4GB VRAM

God I hope not. Sure a 256bit bus will keep prices low, but we need wider lanes on the memory for more bandwidth. Having at least 384bit (512bit is a bit overkill) and lower memory clocks means more efficient and more stable memory and also room for overclocking to increase bandwidth.

Remember, the more narrow the memory bus the higher the memory clocks need to be and higher the memory clocks the more power it draws. Take the AMD R9 series as an example, it has 512bit bus but slower clocks memory yet still gives massive amounts of bandwidth. I think AMD needed to go with slower clocks memory as the GPU core it self was set at such a massive TDP (95C target) that any more increase in power draw or heat would of made the card unstable.

However, this is not the case with Maxwell as its designed to be very power efficient so its TDP should be low and target temperatures for the core should also be low allowing them to ramp up memory speeds. But still a 384bit bus would be better as this would lead to lower memory clocks yet still more bandwidth.

I'm not sure i understand your logic? 2x6 would be 12 total pins, yet you ask why 8 pin doesn't get used? an 8 would, if an 8 was sufficient enough.....
