The Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Multiview (Cont’d)

In Figure 4, you can see the video card with its cooler removed. It uses only solid capacitors and ferrite-core coils (which makes the regulator present higher efficiency because they present lower energy loss than iron-core coils). The voltage regulator circuit has six phases for the graphics chip and one phase for the memory chips, and is controlled by a CHiL CHL8318 chip, using a digital design.

The GPU heatsink can be seen in Figures 6 and 7. It has a copper base, two 8 mm heatpipes, aluminum fins, and a 75 mm fan.

The Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Multiview uses eight 1 Gbit GDDR5 memory chips, making its 1 GB memory (1 Gbit x 8 = 1 GB). The chips used are K4G10325FE-HC04 parts from Samsung, which support up to 2.5 GHz (5 GHz DDR), and since on this video card memory is accessed at 2 GHz (4 GHz DDR), there is still a huge 25% margin for you to increase the memory clock rate while keeping the chips inside the maximum they support. Of course, you can always try to overclock the memory chips above their specs.
