The highly anticipated Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti is going to be announced later this month and with the announcement being just around the corner we are getting new information regarding the GPU. It seems that slower memory is not the only price that you are going to pay with the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti.
That’s right folks, it seems that there is more to it than what meets the eye. We already know that one of the let downs of the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti is that although it will have similar specs as compared to the GTX 1080, it will have GDDR5 memory instead of GDDR5X.
New reports claim that the clock speeds on the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti will also be locked. Why is that the case you ask? well the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti is going to come out with specs similar to the GTX 1080 and if that is the case then there are chances that people might be able to overclock the GPU to give better performance than the GTX 1080.
The Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti will also be $100 cheaper than the GTX 1080 and if people are able to get better performance than the GTX 1080 using a GPU that is $100 cheaper then that would make the higher-end, more expensive GPU obsolete and Nvidia does not want that to happen. That is why the performance of the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti will be locked so it does not beat the GTX 1080.
The following are the specifications of the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti:
- 7.2 billion transistors
- 314mm2 die,
- 2432 cores
- 19 enabled SM units
- 152 TMUs
- 64 ROPs
- 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked @ 8 Gbps
- 256 GB/s bandwidth

In other news, the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti will only be available in custom models and that means that pricing will be different but keep in mind that the GPU is supposed to be $100 cheaper than the GTX 1080 the pricing should be between $399-429 US. There is speculation that the GTX 1070 could get a price but there also evidence to suppose otherwise.
let us know whether or not you are interested in getting the Nvidia 1070 Ti.
