GF100 / Fermi GF100-375-A3 Die Shot
GeForce GTX 480 GPU

This shot of Fermi / GF100 GPU has been taken by a member of forums. The die size is approximately 530mm2. The reference is GF100-375-A3. The A3 stepping is the retail revision.

Concerning the features, the GeForce GTX 480 (GPU: GF100-375-A3) has 480 shaders processors or CUDA cores and according to this news that means the GTX 480 has 480/32 = 15 Streaming Multiprocessors (CUDA terminilogy) or Compute Units (OpenCL terminilogy). The GeForce GTX 480 comes with 1.5GB (1536MB to be accurate!) of GDDR5 memory with a 384-bit memory bus.

The GeForce GTX 470 (GPU: GF100-275-A3) has 14 SM which leads to 14*32 = 448 CUDA cores and is equipped with 1.25GB of GDDR5 memory (1280MB, 384-bit).

The difference between the GTX 480 and the GTX 470 is only ONE COMPUTE UNIT !!!

For the sake of memory, her is a comparison table between the G80 (GeForce 8800 GTX), the GT200 (GeForce GTX 280) and the full version of the GF100 (GeForce GTX 490 😉 )

    Insane DIE size overengineered and therefore extremly ridiculous power consumption and getting very hot. Fermi facts so far point to a total failure just like NV30.

    On the NVidia website they say the Fermi architecture has 512 cuda cores. The GTX 480 has 480 CUDA cores. Is the GTX 480 really a Fermi ?

    Remove my comment, I didn’t read the whole thing… once again. The “full” Fermi must be the GTX 490 with 512 cores, the 480 and 470 being cheaper versions.
