    Is this just equalising trace lengths?

    Hmm I thought VIA's introduced parasitic capacitance and inductance so why are there are there lots on the RAM chips? I have a pretty dense FPGA board with BGA mounted packages infront of me and I can only see three vias, seem like a veyr large number on this board. Does anyone know how many layers this is?

    Technically you showed us pictures of the heat spreader. Now rip that off and show us the die!

    GPUs basically all have exposed dies under the heatsinks, and R770 is no exception; that is the die, not a heat spreader.

    remind me back in the days of the pentium 2......... hopefully this card will set the precedence, waiting on invidia.... in terms of price and hopefully somewhat matured drivers and reliable/efficient drivers... i'd even consider having all the systems drivers on an integrated flash bank, that can be written or read from when needed....

    Let me guess, you had the flashlight pointed straight down when you took the picture of those rams. Next time, hold the light from the side, at almost board level, and let the light spill across the device sideways, on edge. You will find that doing this makes the laser etch show up much clearer than in that picture you posted., which is barely ledgable BTW.
