NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card now official

Adjust Comment Print

Nvidia claims the 1070 Ti offers more than three times the performance of previous-generation graphics cards. More importantly perhaps, AMD's recently launched RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 have brought additional competition to the high-end GPU market, and while the GTX 1080 normally beats the Vega 64, the Vega 56 actually placed slightly ahead of the GTX 1070 in quite a few games. Nvidia's partners have built cards with thermals and power accessories that allow gamers to push performance way past stock specifications. The new card carries 2432 cores as compared to GTX 1070 which features 1920 cores. Apart from that an issue with the GeForce GTX 1080 laptop (with G-Sync) has been addressed and now stuttering is gone.

According to PC World, NVIDIA has equipped GTX 1070 Ti "with the same vapor chamber cooling and five-phase dual-FET power design as the GTX 1080 Founders Edition".

Today, Nvidia officially reveled the specs and pricing for its upcoming GTX 1070 Ti graphics card. Numerous manufacturers will offer Ti-based cards, including Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, and PNY. There's a limit of two per customer, and if you're insane enough to pick up a pair, you can also grab an SLI bridge from there for $40.

How much will the 1070 Ti cost?

The street price will vary due to the existence of cryptocurrency mining. The 1070 Ti also has a base clock speed of 1607MHz (improving on the 1070's base speed of 1506MHz), which can be boosted to 1683MHz (the same top speed as the 1070), and has 8GB GDDR5 of onboard memory (like the 1070).

The card will launch on November 2 with an RRP of £419, which reflects the spot it will be occupying in Nvdia's line-up between the vanilla 1070 and the 1080.
