NVIDIA might release the Ti variant of the GeForce RTX 2070 soon, packing some extra shaders, and a resulting 15-20% performance boost. We already know that NVIDIA is prepping refreshed versions of the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 with faster GDDR6 memory (and maybe even higher core clocks), for an E3 reveal and it’s possible that the GeForce RTX 2070 Ti will be unveiled along with them.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Ti Specs: 2560 Cores Clocked @ 1770MHz
According to a Tweet by a reputed source, the GeForce RTX 2070 Ti will pack 2560 CUDA Cores with a boost clock of 1770MHz. The rest of the config is expected to be the same as
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 and 2080 come with 2304 and 2944 shaders, respectively, meaning that we are looking at a bunch of additional SMs clocked slightly higher than the 2070’s 1710MHz (@ 1770). The surplus SMs and the higher frequencies are where the 15-20% of extra performance will come from.
As far as the price is concerned, it’s a bit of a tough one. If the 2070 Ti is launched with the faster GDD6 chips, then it’ll probably be $50-$100 more than the refreshed 2070 ($550-600 for non-FE). However, if the older memory is used, then expect a price-tag of around $450.
I’m sure you’re wondering if the Super teaser was referring to the RTX 2070 Ti, or are the refreshed RTX Turing cards still inbound. Well, to be fair, we can’t say anything with 100% certainty, but the faster GPUs have been cited by many sources and it’s highly likely that we’ll see them at E3, right alongside AMD’s Radeon Navi and RDNA architecture.
As for the GeForce RTX 2070, it may be announced at E3 or perhaps at a later date (Hot-Chips?). In case you’ve forgotten, the present ray-tracing cards are expected to get a $100 price-cut, with the exception of the RTX 2080 Ti, the only green card without a Radeon rival.
