NVIDIA Kepler GPU launches its third generation with its new GeForce GT 640/630 V2

NVIDIA Kepler GPU launches its third generation with its new GeForce GT 640/630 V2

A few months ago, Nvidia revealed he was working on the third generation of its graphics architecture Kepler (GK20x Series) , GPUs were revealed a few weeks ago in the Encode SDK and make its official debut today.

Nvidia has quietly launched their new and GeForce V2, its first based graphics core (Kepler’s generation), which unlike the first two generations of Kepler , apparently brings full support DirectX 11.1 GPUs as AMD Radeon HD 7000 .

Currently Nvidia has not revealed much information about this new GPU, but as we have specifications very similar to GK107 (used in GPUs and GeForce GT 640 ), but has a memory bus of only 64 bits.

GeForce GT 640 V2:

  • Graphics Core GK208 third generation.
  • 384 shader processors operating at 1046MHz.
  • 16 texture units (TMUs).
  • Eight rendering units (ROPs).
  • 1GB 64-bit GDDR5 memory running at 1250MHz (5000MHz effective).
  • TDP of 49W.

GeForce GT 630 V2:

  • Graphics Core Kepler GK208 third generation.
  • 384 shader processors running at 902MHz.
  • 16 texture units (TMUs).
  • Eight rendering units (ROPs).
  • 1GB 64-bit DDR3 memory running at 900MHz (1800MHz effective).
  • 25W TDP.

The new GPUs should offer very similar performance, while offering lower consumption, lower manufacturing cost, and probably a very similar to the models they replace (GeForce GT 640 and GeForce GT 630 respectively).
