I just got my new card in; MSI N210-MD1G/D3
It has all circuitry on the top of the card.
uP1504T x 2
I find the resistance on the uP1504T VRMs are .760 and .606 on legs 6 so I am guessing these are for memory and core?
Any ideas what the uP0105P does if the other 2 are for core and mem?

The uP0105 is a 2A ultra low dropout linear regulator specifically designed for motherboard, notebook and graphic card applications. This device works with dual supplies, a control input for the control circuitry and a power input as low as 1.2V for providing current to output. The uP0105 delivers high-current and ultra-low-drop output voltage as low as 0.8V for applications where VOUT is very close to VIN.
The uP0105 features comprehensive control and protection functions: a power on reset (POR) circuit for monitoring both control and power inputs for proper operation; an EN input for enabling or disabling the device, a power OK with time delay for indicating the output voltage status, a foldback current limit function, and a thermal shutdown function.
The uP0105 is available in PSOP-8L or WDFN3x3-10L packages with very low thermal resistance.
One big difference from my ASUS card that I am noticing is less caps and other stuff...Edited by k4m1k4z3 - 11/6/12 at 2:57pm
