Just a few weeks after the first alleged leak of a cooler shroud for Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070, another image has surfaced today showing the full cooler shroud in all its glory. The GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics card are said to be coming with Nvidia’s highly anticipated Pascal GP104 GPU, which is rumoured to be a replacement for the older Maxwell GM204 GPU.
The leaked image of the full cooler shroud for the GTX 1080 was originally spotted by a user on Chinese search engine Baidu. Folks over at VideoCardz have analysed the photo and found that it is rather believable. This is because if, say, this GTX 1080 cooler shroud was a fake, the screws on the cooler shroud should align with Nvidia’s previous NVTTM cooler used in its 900 series graphics cards – in this case, it does not.
Speaking of Nvidia’s NVTTM coolers, knowing that the screws do not align with that of the 900 series, one wouldn’t be wrong to assume that Nvidia may unveil a new GPU cooling solution alongside its Pascal-based graphics cards. Though some might argue otherwise, we do think that the alleged cooler shroud for the GTX 1080 looks absolutely stunning.
If this leak is to be believed, the rumours of a June unveiling of consumer Pascal-based graphics cards seems very likely. Without trying to sound like a broken record, as with any other Pascal rumours and leaks, this one should be taken with a grain of salt.
