The rumors were true. On Thursday, Nvidia announced a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, a new graphics label designed to graze into a mark between a $350 GTX 1070 and $500 GTX 1080 in the GeForce lineup. The label was expected expelled usually to explain a opening climax behind from AMD’s $400 Radeon Vega 56, that out-punches a GTX 1070 in many games.
The $450 GTX 1070 Ti, that launches Nov 2, uses a same “GP104” GPU as a GeForce cards it straddles, yet it’s a distant reduction cut-down chronicle than a chip in a namesake GTX 1070. In fact, a GTX 1070 Ti hews awfully close to a “full” GP104 GPU in the GTX 1080. Here are a CUDA cores in any graphics card:
- GTX 1080: 2,560 CUDA cores
- GTX 1070 Ti: 2,432 CUDA cores
- GTX 1070: 1,920 CUDA cores
That’s one approach to flog mud in a Vega 56’s face. And it’s not a usually one, as you’ll shortly see.
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti specs
The card’s time speeds appropriate elements from both of a cousins, too. The GTX 1070 Ti ships with a 1607MHz bottom time and 1683MHz boost clock. By comparison, a GTX 1070 clocks during 1506/1683MHz, and a GTX 1080 hums along during 1607/1733MHz, yet in existence Nvidia’s GPU Boost 3 record typically pushes those cards to aloft speeds, generally in customized cards with brawny cooling solutions.
And notwithstanding what some dumb early rumors claimed, a GTX 1070 Ti can indeed be overclocked. In fact, Nvidia versed a label with a same fog cover cooling and five-phase dual-FET energy pattern as a GTX 1080 Founders Edition—a step adult over a stepped-down capabilities of a baseline GTX 1070 Ti.
Nvidia’s GTX 1070 Ti packs 8GB of onboard memory, yet it’s customary GDDR5 instead of a faster, some-more fit GDDR5X found in a GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti. Like a GTX 1070, a Ti uses a 256-bit train for an altogether memory bandwidth of 256GBps, compared to a GTX 1080’s 320GBps.
With so most of a GTX 1070 Ti’s GP104 chip is unlocked, it final a same 180W TDP and 8-pin energy connector as a GTX 1080. The label also sports an matching outlay pattern as a predecessors: 3 DisplayPorts, an HDMI 2.0b connection, and dual-link DVI. The GTX 1070 Ti can also take advantage of Nvidia’s GeForce Experience software, including GFE’s stellar Ansel and ShadowPlay Highlights tools.
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti cost and recover date
If you’re meddlesome in a $450 GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition, we can preorder it on Nvidia’s website today.
You might not wish to, though. While a universe is still watchful for customized Radeon Vega options, a full lineup of tradition GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards from a likes of EVGA, Asus, Zotac, PNY, MSI, and Gigabyte will be accessible when Nvidia’s new label launches on Nov 2. Third-party GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 hardware has been accessible for over a year, so that creates sense.
The GTX 1070 Ti will also make an coming in brutal tradition PCs from boutique vendors like Origin PC, that now offers EVGA and PNY variants of a GTX 1070 Ti as an choice in a Chronos, Millennium, Genesis, Omni, and Neuron desktops. (We’ve tested new versions of a itty-bitty Chronos and all-in-one Omni, and came divided rarely impressed, indeed.)
Bottom line: Nvidia’s new graphics label might be called a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, yet this hardware is some-more like a GTX 1080 in all yet name. (And, uh, a memory.) The Radeon Vega 56’s feat over Nvidia’s lineup might breeze adult being passing indeed. Look for a PCWorld examination of a GTX 1070 Ti in a really nearby future.
