With NVIDIA’s latest generation of graphics cards less then a month away, benchmarks and other leaks have started showing up online. One such leak is an image of the GTX 1170 benchmark scores from this forum.
The image shows a 3DMark result of the GTX 1170 with an astounding 16GB of VRAM. The GPU clock speed is 2512MHz, while the memory bus clock is at 2,552MHz. The score of 22989 is even higher than that of a 1080Ti, which is very suspicious since there isn’t a significant bump in performance going from TSMC’s 16nm to 12nm nodes.
Another hideous aspect of these images is the benchmark windows that are concealing some details. We also need to consider the fact that the 1170 is a mid-range card and considering how expensive VRAM is, 16GB doesnt quite cut it.
Maybe its a bit too soon for plausible leaks, but if there’s even the slightest chance of these being true, it would be a massive game changer for the entire industry.
