A 3DMark FireStrike benchmark from NVIDIA's Turing-based GeForce GTX 1170 graphics card was reportedly released, showing an absolutely monstrous performance of the new Sweetspot GTX-XX70-class GPU.
So let's go straight to the juicy parts!
Just over two months ago, we had The preliminary specifications released and expected The performance of NVIDIA's GTX 1170 is based on all the current rumors and leaks and we have described it as a potential GTX 1080 Ti killer. If this new leak is to be believed, then we're actually looking at a GTX 1080 Ti killer.  Alleged GTX 1170 3DMark FireStrike benchmark sighted on Polish hardware forums
The GTX 1170 is said to have a 256-bit memory interface paired with 16GB of GDDR6 memory and will run at a whopping ~ 2.5GHz clock rate that is unprecedentedly higher What we have seen at Pascal and Volta, which makes it the highest clocked graphics card. As one has ever seen, if one can believe this alleged leak.
The card has reportedly reached 29752 graphics points in the 3DMark FireStrike, well ahead of NVIDIA's GTX 1080 Ti and well ahead of AMD's RX Vega 64. Based on these numbers we see a map that is no less than 65% faster than the GTX 1070 and not less than 38% faster than the GTX 1080.

There are several warning signs associated with this "alleged" leak, and I'm supposed to say this because we are not quite sure in that "leak" to classify it at this time it is more of a rumor, hence the rumor in this article.
The fact that what we see is a photo of a screen rather than an actual screenshot or even a 3DMark database entry makes this "alleged" leak suspicious because it can be faked. The "Leaker" would just take a screenshot of an ordinary 3DMark result, edit it with the desired GTX 1170 details, display the edited image on the screen, and then take a picture. In fact, we have already seen this exact method in abundance to create leaks.
The second red flag is the fact that we could not find this 3DMark entry in 3DMark's online database, although a cautious tester might be possible Blocking 3DMark when creating an online entry This "alleged" photo shows a database entry instead an offline 3DMark benchmark run. An entry that does not exist online as far as we can distinguish.
The third red flag is the fact that the entry displays the card as a GTX 1170, rather than an NVIDIA "generic VGA" entry, as is common in early graphics card leaks. It is unlikely that 3DMark will correctly identify a GTX 1170 card as a GTX 1170 before launching the card, much more likely to call it a "generic VGA" NVIDIA card.
The fourth and final red flag is the clock speed. A ~ 2.5GHz clock rate from these chips is very unlikely, especially since we are most likely still talking about 12nm silicon and even a 2GHz clock rate out of the box would be optimistic.
At the end of the day, we were simply unable to verify the authenticity of this leak, and although the level of performance it reflects could be very accurate, we would encourage readers to salt it with the usual granule However, we expect big things from NVIDIA's upcoming Turing GPUs and would not be surprised if the upcoming GTX 1170 or whatever NVIDIA could call GTX 1080 Ti-class power deliver or shut down can to him. We'll probably know soon, so next month at Gamescom, so stay tuned.
