As we approach the alleged release window of NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce GTX 11 series, the rumors that are flirting with today's and the alleged GeForce GTX 1170 are getting louder. As always, this is a huge rumor and I doubt it's almost real, but let's take a look anyway.
The new alleged GeForce GTX 1
NVIDIA used a wall with GPU clock speeds with Pascal, even with the most enthusiastic GTX 1080/1080 Ti, which reached a maximum GPU clock of 2.2 GHz, unless it was heavily modified to more Achieve performance. When that happened, the walls were raised to 2.5GHz and the path to 2.7-2.8GHz was opened.
The alleged GeForce GTX 1170 beats not only the GTX 1080 Ti, but every other graphics card on the market. AMD has no chance, because his now 12-month-old Radeon RX Vega 64 gets her red ass handed over from the GTX 1170 to AMD. All predecessors of the GTX 10 series would bow to the GTX 11 series if they did not have EOL (end of life) in the months after the launch of the GTX 11 series.
