NVIDIA has teased the new GTX 1080/1070 Cooler design on the official GeForce site. The new picture on the blog is showcasing that the rumors about NVIDIA Pascal based GTX 1080 / 1070 graphics card cooler design were true, as it looks same as the leaked pictures of the GPU cover which have been appearing in the last couple of weeks.
NVIDIA hasn’t generally changed their “NVTTM” Heatsink outline subsequent to the dispatch of the first GeForce GTX Titan in 2013, so you could say it’s high time for a change. The new GPU cooler will include a more rakish design to flavor things up a bit, whilst as yet keeping a few similitudes to the first format.
The picture on NVIDIA blog is the rear part of graphics card close to the I/O. You can see the full picture below with previously leaked pictures of GTX1080 / GTX 1070 Cooler design as well.
NVIDIA officially teases the new GTX 1080 / GTX 1070 Cooler design
As should be obvious, it creates the impression that the leaked pictures were genuine. NVIDIA is holding a live stream on their Twitch channel tomorrow at 6PM PST. It’s feasible that the organization will uncover their up and coming Pascal-lineup there.
The NVIDIA GeForce 1070 GTX would use a harvested / cut-down version of Pascal GP104 (GP104-200) silicon, possibly with 1664 CUDA Cores, 8 GB of memory GDDR5 by Samsung running @8.00 GHz with memory interface of 256 bits that would result in a bandwidth of 256GB / s.
The GeForce 1080 GTX would use GP104-400 silicon with 2048 CUDA Cores and would be attached to 8 GB of memory GDDR5X manufactured by Micron @ 12 GHz. The new GPU would keep the memory interface to 256 bits and would have a bandwidth that would move between 320/384 GB / s, far from the 720GB / s of Tesla P100 (Pascal GP100) with HBM2 memory, 512 GB / s offered by the Radeon Fury with HBM memory, and very close to the 336 GB / s of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
