NVIDIA's NV40 first hands-on

Some guys from the inquirer got their hands on a sample of NVIDIA's NV40:
We agreed not to photograph what we saw, but can confirm the following.

When removing the heatsink, we noted that the NV40 GPU itself was, in comparison to what we have seen before, quite large.

However whilst our earlier information indicated that it comprised of 205 -210 million transistors, our sources currently say that what we were holding was a 175 million transistor part.

With the heatsink removed we could see that a small formed surrounding was employed to assist leveling of the heatsink.
