Is this the new GeForce GTX 1000 family?

Guys over at WCCFTech discovered a new ‘leak’ with Pascal GeForce GTX graphics cards.

GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 cooling shroud leaked?

Assuming that these photos are real (and I did my best to check if they are) we could finally get the answer to what is going to  happen to GeForce GTX naming schema.

The leak suggest that NVIDIA will unveil new iteration of NVTTM cooling solution branded with GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 logos.

I noticed that for some reason the 1080 logo is very sharp, meanwhile 1070 logo is not. It probably doesn’t mean anything, as I did check if these were copy pasted in any way, and they were not. Plus the logos are using official GeForce font.

While I’m sceptical about this leak, I do believe that the photos are real. We just can’t be sure if photographs were taken close to the production line, or in a small company where one worker was just so bored that he decided to design those on CNC machine (but would anyone do such a thing?). Also why are those  photos so dark, is this a normal thing for CNC production?

I’m tagging this post as a rumor and until proven otherwise, and I not changing thoughts about GTX 1800/1700 naming schema for now. But what do you guys think about this ‘leak’?

The inversion usually shows if any parts were copy pasted.

By enhancing brightness and contrast on both photos, we have a better view on the cutting fluid. It looks different on each photos, so both shrouds were probably cut in separate runs.
