There has been a lot of hype surrounding the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti since we first got a look at it being mentioned in a hardware specifications chart. If you thought that this was some kind of typo then you are wrong as Gigabyte has confirmed that the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti Will be coming out before the end of October.
Some specifications of the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti have made their way to the internet and if these numbers are indeed true then we are looking at a GPU that will be very close in performance to the GTX 1080. Which makes sense as the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti will be competing with the AMD Vega 56 but with these specs, the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti should be able to blow the competition out of the water.
According to the specification the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti will feature the GP104 GPU which can also be found on the GTX 1080. The upcoming graphics card will feature 2432 CUDA cores and 152 Texture Mapping Units which is just 128 CUDA cores and 12 TMUs less than the GTX 1080. You can check out other specifications below:
The graphics card will have the same base clock as the 1080 and the same boost clock as the GTX 1070, 1607 MHz and 1683 MHz respectively. So what is the catch here? Is everything so good about this upcoming GPU? No, the catch here is that while the GTX 1080 uses 11 Gbps GDDR5X memory the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti will use 8 Gbps GDDR5 memory instead.
Memory could be a bit of a turn-off but considering that the graphics card is rumored to cost $399, it seems like money well spent. The price has not been confirmed by Nvidia or any other AIB partner so you should take this with a grain of salt and other reports are claiming that the price will be $425 so better to wait than to take this number to heart so soon.
Let us know what you think about the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti and whether or not this is something that you might be interested in.
