Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti Is Only 2% Slower Overall Than The GTX 1080 And Costs $100 Less
We know that Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti would perform similar to the GTX 1080 but we did not know for sure how close both GPUs would be. We heard that the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti reference design models will be locked but that might not be the case for AIB cards. Some Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks have been leaked and they can tell us the performance difference between the two.
The Ashes of the Singularity Extreme benchmark has been conducted at 1440p and the performance numbers of the 1080 have been included below. The GTX 1080 delivers a score of 6300 points and leaked Ashes of the Singularity GTX 1070 Ti benchmarks reveal a score of 6200. This means that at most the GTX 1070 Ti is 2% slower, at least in Ashes of the Singularity.
The Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti also shows superior performance in the Ashes of the Singularity batch tests. In the normal batch, the 1080 scores 64.3 FPS while the 1070 Ti manages to achieve 65.5 FPS. In the medium batch the 1080 scores 63.7 FPS while the 1070 Ti scores 65.8. Lastly, we have the heavy batch where the GTX 1080 scores 54.7 FPS while the Nvidia GTX 1070 scores 52.4 FPS.
You can check out the benchmarks here. The 1070 Ti has 19 SMs as compared to 20 in the GTX 1080 so you should not expect to see a major hit in performance and that is what we see here. Then again things also vary from game to game and while there is only a 2% difference here, things could be different when playing other titles.
Looking at the numbers here, a 2% slower GPU for a price cut of $100 seems like great value for money considering that Pascal GPUs are known for great overclocking. It is safe to assume that you could overclock this GPU to get the same performance as the GTX 1080 if not more.
Let us know what you think about the GTX 1070 Ti and whether or not you are interested in buying one of these GPUs when they come out next month.
