NVIDIA is prepping up for their launch, scheduled on 26th October, for the GTX 1070 Ti, aimed at competing with the Radeon RX Vega 56. The Vega 56 was covering a performance segment between the $400 GTX 1070 and the $550 GTX 1080, at the same price as the 1070. Before the launch and the start of sales on 2nd November, the details and specifications have already been making the rounds on the internet.
Now some new reports about the card have surfaced, including full specifications from Expreview and also some juicy details which if prove to be true might piss off some people. Word on the street is that the card would come with locked down clock frequencies. That is a surprise, isn’t it?
But if you think about it, it does make sense. The specs are very close to that of the 1080 and it’s a 100 US$ cheaper. Now, NVIDIA isn’t exactly known for charity so it makes sense that to restrict the performance of the 1070Ti, NVIDIA would lock down it’s core clock. A rumor is still a rumor, so as long as the official green slides don’t drop it’s still not certain.
It will use the same GP104 GPU as the 1070 and 1080
2432 CUDA cores with 152 TMUs and 64 ROPs
The base clock speed has been increased to 1607 Mhz from 1506 Mhz in the GTX 1070
8GB GDDR5 Memory
A TDP of 180W, same as the GTX 1080, and 30W more than the 1070
It is expected to launch later this month (26th October as rumored) and we’ll have updates for you soon enough, so stay tuned.
