    If that is real that is pretty impressive for a single 1170 performance-wise

    So temp limit is 83 degrees and power limit 100% and no overclock and showing no voltage. Seems like stock but its running at 42 degrees which i can only assume is after the bench so under water? because only the FE cooler would be on this and running at 42 degrees seems cool after a bench.

    After benchmarking the temp would drop down to just above ambient given a few minutes.

    yep... zeed came up trumps, thanks for that :)

    My sensible head was saying "wait for the Ti!" but if that 1170 is legit, and assuming the 1180 is 20-30% quicker again there is no chance i am waiting another 9-12 months.

    Has it not been said that it is **** easy to fake those benchmarks i.e. just changing the hardware info such as name + clocks through config files or something?

    +1

    Think it needs to be taken with the usual amount of salt but if legit very impressive.

    It's very easy to change the name and maybe clocks, if you play around with the gpu bios. But i'm not sure about the ram size. But this pic is so bad quality. He could've made a screenshot, faked it with photoshop and then made a bad quality picture, so that people don't see the fake. I don't believe in a 16Gb 1170, so i think it's fake. Only 1180 might come with 16 GB Ram.

    Call me cynical but I'd have to agree. It's a lot of faff to take a phone picture for upload when you can just hit the Print Screen button on your keyboard...

    Probably right, but surely if you gonna fake a screen shot, you would do just that, not take a photo of it.
    I have no idea how fast that is showing us the 1170 supposedly is, as I cannot find a similar 1080ti run. Obviously if it is 100% faster then that would certainly mean its nonsense, but if only just, then maybe.

    16GB seems a bit OTT, and probably expensive, not surprised at the supposed 2.5 GHz though.

    But yes it is probably fake.

    Well, on this related tangent, Window's ClearType on text is actually quite tricky to duplicate in Photoshop, as would text displays on benchmarking UIs (the antialiasing algorithm and resulting colour compositing against backgrounds essentially). So if you were going to fake it, you'd grab a load of screens and get your text rendering in Photoshop to be just close enough and then take a bad phone picture so your monitor's pixel grid and refresh rate dirties the picture, thus conceiling any flaws in your Photoshop work.

    I also don't buy 16GB on a midrange card.
