Linked from Anandtech:

"VR-Zone has got the goods on the reference design of the upcoming NVIDIA NV35 which sports a 450MHz/425MHz core/memory clock, 256MB of memory, and although the reference design shows a card that occupies 2 card slots, the retail version is likely to only take up a single slot.

NVIDIA has released their latest NV35 reference card samples to the card manufacturers already and apparently the mass production of the NV35 cards will start rolling in June so there will be no delay this time. From the sources we have heard, NVIDIA is confident of NV35 this time and a new set of Detonator FX driver will be used to enhance performance. NV35 will be made by both TSMC and IBM but NVIDIA has not decided how many GPUs each foundry will make. The memory clock initially at 425Mhz was improved to 450Mhz on the latest NV35 card samples. From the picture below, it seems like NV35 card is still occupying 2 slots like the NV30 but the retail cards should only occupy a single slot."

any word on the 'noise' factor? lol

Ugh...why cant these people put a normal 4-pin Molex connector on there in the upper right corner pointing toward where your PSU wiring normally would be and just LEAVE IT??

Yeah we have to hope they addressed that. I am interested in that drum fan design...I like how the airflow radiates out and blows over the memory heat sinks also...so they constantly get moving air across them. Except for that one memory chip behind the DVI...that one doesn't appear to get it like the other 3.

As for the molex....it's a much smaller footprint standing it up vertically. There's no room on the board to lay it down...not enough unused real estate.
