As we get closer to the purported release window of NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce GTX 11 series, the more juicy the rumors get - leading into today and the purported GeForce GTX 1170. As always, this is a huge rumor and I doubt it's even close to real, but let's take a look at it anyway.

The new purported GeForce GTX 1170 has been benchmarked with an Intel Core i5-8600K processor in 3DMark, beating out NVIDIA's best consumer GeForce graphics card, the GTX 1080 Ti. Inside, the GTX 1170 reportedly runs a 256-bit memory bus with 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and a GPU clock speed of 2.5GHz, which is huge.

NVIDIA used a brick wall with GPU clock speeds with Pascal with even the most enthusiast-focused GTX 1080/1080 Ti hitting a maximum GPU clock of 2.2GHz, unless it was heavily modded to take more power. When that happened, the walls to 2.5GHz were risen, and the path to 2.7-2.8GHz were opened.

The purported GeForce GTX 1170 beats not just the GTX 1080 Ti, but every other graphics card on the market. AMD has no chance with its now 12-month-old Radeon RX Vega 64 getting its red ass handed to AMD by the GTX 1170. All previous-gen GTX 10 series cards would bow down to the GTX 11 series, unless they went EOL (end of life) in the months post-launch of the GTX 11 series.
