Leaked Images Show Nvidia GTX 1000 Shroud

/ 3 years ago


The latest graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia are on their way, and that means one thing, someone has them! The new cards are no doubt undergoing a lot of development, testing and manufacturing in various parts of the world, so leaked information is always inevitable. The latest batch of images show us what appears to be a new shroud design for the 1000 series of cards from Nvidia, namely their GTX 1070 and 1080 designs.


The revised NVTTM cooling solution design features a similar design to the current crop of cards,  but with a much more aggressive and angular design. Of course, we’ve seen many leaks in the past and for the most part these days, they’re often right on the money. However, after the whole Nintendo NX controller fiasco, we have to advice you all to take these images with one more pinch of salt than usual.


That being said, we’re about two months away from Computex, and only a week away from Nvidia GTC, so it makes sense that some cards would be getting produced, at least in terms of visual design, to be featured at these shows. Nvidia are going to want to show off something at their own event and Computex, it just makes sense.


You can see the metal housing in the images, as well as CNC machines and cutting fluid. Could this be an Nvidia production line, or just part of an elaborate hoax? My gut instinct is saying these are real, but with any luck, we won’t have much longer to find out the truth.

Are you looking forwards to the 1000 series of cards from Nvidia? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I can’t see this being a hoax as it costs way too much in time,resources and finances to set a CNC machine up. Everytime there is a new product a separate program needs to be written and usually the operation is multi-parted (unless the equipment is pretty high standard with multiple uses such as bending pressing drilling routing etc).

    BUT then again nothing in this world surprises me anymore so it may very well be. One thing is certain though, the person who took these is gonna be in some serious trouble.

      No it doesnt cost that much.

        yeah really it does.

          Maybe where you work there isnt any small metal factory that has a cnc machine or a school that has it. But where i live there is both and you could ask them to make it or help you.
          And that doesnt cost much. Also the sheet of metal needed im sure doesnt cost much ,im sure that the amount needed would only cost about 40-60 euro, and yes cnc machines cost much.

            The company I worked for is the biggest supplier of pharmaceutical products in the world. You obviously have no idea how much time it takes to set up a CNC machine for a brand new run, not to mention the quality testing of the first 100 samples or so to make sure they fall within the specifications, these specs usually deal in microns (those are one thousandth of a millimetre). It is not a case of just chucking a bit of metal into the cnc and seeing what happens each program has several parts to it, and being as it is a brand new run that program needs to be written from scratch. If you seriously believe that only those two were made you are very very mistaken, when you set up a run after all tolerances have been met a large run is prepared consisting of thousands of pieces.

            Ok i was wrong. I was talking about a laser cutter but thats another thing. The thing about the “program” is that the factory i was talking about uses in house made program that is a lot like sketchup ,a program with 3d view 2d view and not like command prompt in windows, so you dont need to make a new “program”. Also you said that you where in the pharmacerutical market not a custom metal “stuff” making market. Did you make things like on the picture.
            And did you work in the EU ?

          • grumpytrooper says:

            Yes I was based in the UK, I have worked with all sorts of materials ranging from Rubber to stainless steel to plastics and iron. I can’t comment on a laser cutting machine as I have never used one personally but the programs for the CNC machines were all pretty much entered manually and then saved as a numbered file for future use. For example if we had to make 30,000 table structures we would just go through the menu’s and select program number four, load the jigs that held the legs and frame in place then pressed start and the machine would then weld,drill,tap and polish the materials.

            Befroe the Pharmaceutical job came up I was running a robot welder at a local steel factory that made office furniture like chairs, tables and desks etc, the pharma job was mostly rubber/plastic based but there was a separate workshop where all of the press tools were made. If you ever go to hospital and have an injection the little black rubber stopper at the end of the plunger will have been made by the company I used to work for and for blood tests we also made the vacuum stoppers on top of the test tubes where the blood is collected…….imagine how many of those items are used worldwide on a daily basis 🙂

            Where are you from ?

    It’s not a leak.

    It’s scheduled and precisely controlled paper-launch. 🙂
