The statement "the 'leak' PC having the same clocks, voltages, and temperatures across all 16 cores. 24C in Shadow of the Tomb Raider" is not true at all if you look at the original source. The CPU clocks, and voltages are locked for testing purpose, while the temperatures did vary during the testing.

Nope, this is most honest leak ever, it is as fake as availability of new graphic cards anywhere remotely close to reasonable price. :-D

Jokes aside, it is not like nVidia has any incentive to make better cards when they basically immediately sell anything they can make. Good problem for nVidia yo have, but bad for consumers who can't get new cards.

Two things.

  1. You're assuming the card was actually tested, which as we've noted in the text is highly unlikely given the number of discrepancies in the data and screenshots provided.
  2. If the cards were tested, they should all be tested the same way, and screenshots of performance should be comparable. How do you test cards at the same settings (locked clocks, etc.) and then capture a bogus screenshot?
I can see from the images that temperatures "varied," but how exactly was a benchmark run where CPU temps were 24C across all cores for a screenshot? Answer: Either it wasn't run, or the screenshot was doctored. And if it's the latter, then what else was doctored?
