Bright Side of News has another update about the upcoming GT300 GPU from NVIDIA, the site claims the part is still on track for Q3 2009 and that the chip shoots for a 225W TDP, just slightly more than the GeForce GTX 275.
The GT300 part targets a thermal range of 225W and should feature two 6-pin PEG [PCI Express Graphics] power connectors, same as on the current GTX285 graphics card. The target was not previously rumored 300W, e.g. one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe. Then again, nVidia should hold off from opening the champagne, since ATI's Evergreen uses just one 6-pin PEG. Dual Evergreen will probably use the conventional high-end arrangement off one 8-pin and one 6-pin PEG connector.
There you go. You have a 40nm chip targeting clocks of 700 MHz for the core, 1600 MHz for those 512 MIMD shader cores and nice 1.1 GHz QDR, e.g. 4.4 GT/s for the GDDR5 memory... sucking same amount of power as the actual GTX285.
