In a bid to take on the Radeon Vega 56, which AMD recently claimed outperformed Nvidia's 1070 GPU with its ability to offer a "smoother gaming experience", Nvidia's new offering uses the same GP104 GPU used in the GTX 1080, packs 2,432 CUDA cores (up from 1,920 in the GTX 1070) and offers 8GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps for a total bandwidth of 256GB/s. The Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti has the same TDP 180W the base clock is the same as the GTX 1080, 1607 MHz and the boost clock is the same as the GTX 1070, 1683 MHz.
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is now officially launched, but there were plenty of questions surrounding the card before its release. Based on specs, this new graphics card should also far surpass the $469 (£419, AU$699) AMD Radeon RX Vega 56. Most well-seasoned PC enthusiasts can already have a good guess about the performance and overclockability of the GTX 1070 Ti as it sits between existing similar designs and the number of CUDA cores and reference clocks are now known.
Of course the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is based upon Nvidia's Pascal architecture and snuggles in specs, performance and pricing between the now available GTX 1070 and 1080 designs. Apart from that an issue with the GeForce GTX 1080 laptop (with G-Sync) has been addressed and now stuttering is gone. But first, let's look at the confirmed specifications of the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti.
The Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti is aimed at the high-end market and the graphics card is both 4K and VR Ready. However, even though it has been launched today, with pre-orders opening up immediately, end users won't get their mitts on these graphics cards until 2 November and onwards. Above is the sample of the Palit GeForce GTX 1070 Ti overclocked quickly with an MSI Afterburner. Are any of you now in the market for a new graphics card?
