NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Cooler Shrouds Leaked

A few weeks ago, partial specification of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 surfaced online. At that point in time, it was uncertain whether the leaked specifications were just fake rumors or close to the real thing. Just recently, a new information regarding the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 was leaked online. This time, it’s a photo that looks like a portion of the alleged upcoming graphic cards’ cooler shrouds. See photo below.

Right now, I am not sure if it’s real. The photos do not seemed to be edited or manipulated, and I am not sure if these shrouds are the real deal. Somebody could have made up these shrouds if they have the right power tools.

But if the photos above are real, then that means the next generation NVIDIA Pascal graphic cards are indeed named “GeForce GTX 1070” and “GeForce GTX 1080”, and not X80 and X70 as claimed by other rumors. This could also mean that NVIDIA will be using aluminum or magnesium alloy as one of the materials used in the cooler shroud on their Pascal graphics cards.

In addition to this new leak, the upcoming NVIDIA Pascal graphics cards GTX 1080, and GTX 1070 are said to feature GDDR5X instead of HBM2, with the HBM2 technology reserved for higher end GPUs later this year. The cards are also rumored to be released by May or June after NVIDIA has officially introduced the next generation Pascal architecture.

What do you think guys? Is this the real deal or not?
