NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Specs Leaked

TechARP obtained leaked specifications of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which is being launching October 26 and available (supposedly) November 2. While the cards will carry a suggested retail price of $429 USD, which incidentally is higher than the Radeon RX Vega 56, it is anyone's guess what they will actually retail at if miners take an interest in the card.

As anticipated, only one of "GP104" Pascal's twenty streaming multiprocessors is being disabled, which means the GTX 1070 Ti will have 2432 CUDA cores, along with 152 TMUs and 64 ROPs. Core clock speed is being raised to 1607 MHz, unfortunately the boost speed (1683 MHz) is identical to that of the GTX 1070. The increased performance comes not surprisingly with a higher TDP (180 W), which is the same as the GTX 1080. All of which points to performance very close to the existing GeForce GTX 1080. And, if you are wondering how the GTX 1070 Ti stacks up against Radeon's RX Vega, TechARP prepared a chart of that as well:

Couldn't they just put it dead center between 1070 and 1080. This is too close to 1080.
Then again having roughly 1080 performance for less money is always a welcome.

1080 will just go EOL, once current stocks have been sold & I bet the 1080Ti will get a price reduction in the new year to keep sales ticking over until Volta arrives.

1080 still has a spot in the lineup. The memory bandwidth is clear delineation they want the 1070ti to be a 1080p card and the GTX1080 at resolutions above that, up to 4k, with the ti as their 4k card. If anything it's the vanilla 1070 whose days are numbered, I imagine they'd slot the new ti @$400-425 where it's highly competitive with the 56 and nips at the 64 in terms of value. So the 1070 will either go away or see a price cut.

EDIT: I'm a derp and didn't read msrp was $429.

the cores amount very close to GTX 1080 but fear not, Nvidia bottlenecking GTX 1070 Ti by using GDDR5 instead of 5X
to hopefully widen the performance gap between them

95% of Cuda count. 80% of bandwidth. clearly resulting performance sits at 88-90% of GTX 1080.
Oh cmon the bandwith is just too low. 256GB/s is a single stack of HBM2.

256GB/s is more than enough for 1080p, and they gotta protect the gtx 1080 somehow.

A lot of Vega 56's run at 563 Gb/s, mine does.

+ nearly the GTX1080 power in geometry

Driver optimizations aside, that 100+GP/s is why nV are steadily kicking Radeon ass these days at most resolutions. It took a long time for either camp to hit that mark, but nV have been there for a while now. Even now, just 10GP/s will get you gaming decent on 720p Low/Med for the most part. That mark was hit over 10 years ago.

There is still no single Radeon GPU that attains 100GP/s stock. A Vega64 OC'd will do it, but so will a stock 980Ti. AMD's graphics division's high end will always be second-tier until they fucking re-realize that GP/s is largely the basis of GPU performance. They knew it back when it was 4870 vs GTX260, and before that, X800 vs 7800GTX . Sure, game engines differ, and camp bias can happen, but hardware makes the win happen.

It just looks bad when the RX580 has less than 10% higher GP/s than the fucking GeForce 580.

If they went this route it wouldn't be the first time they did something like this. It would be like the step they took with the GTX 275. Once the 275 launched, they pulled the GTX 280.

...but replaced it with a GTX 285

They have bumped 1080 memory up to 11Gbps and delibrately starved 1070ti with 8Gbps memory in order to keep the performance gap open, so I doubt 1080 will be phased out. Until something could challenge 1080ti from AMD , we wouldn't see any price reduction soon (this makes sense business wise anyway).

NV are trying to take sales from Vega56 as well as better utilise those GP104s which don't qualify as 1080 but yet have more usable cuda cores than 1920 on the original 1070.

Considering it's been 15 months since the 1070 released, we're for sure due on the 1070ti. If you don't have a 1070/56 or higher yet it's a nice little performance boost essentially for the same price.

The 1070 is a fairly decent miner and since this uses GDDR5 too rather than the problematic 5X, it will probably be sought after by miners even though the mining performance will be very close to the 1070.

I just dont see the point of this... like at all.
We will see a new generation soon enough, if you want to compete more then drop the prices a little of what you have and there you go.

Why release another card for that little market in between the two....sigh

They're probably dumping hardware.

There's always a "reason for it" if money is to be made. :D

Well, all of my thoughts on this have already been touched on so I will just say

Pascal was released over 16 months ago, they are just winding down the days. I'm sure this was not meant to be a long term competitor to Vega. Perhaps it will be their competitor/filler until the 1160 launches.

I will run my machine until it dies the way current prices of parts are going.

I think I seen the 8600K at Microcenter for $350 and 8700K for $500. They're out of stock but wtf. DRAM prices are stupid too. I hate to say but I almost can't recommend not building a PC for gaming cause of terrible prices.

Knowing the current mining scene this will be too pricey as well.

....only at 4K, really... which, who runs a 1070 of any flavor there and expects good FPS with high/ultra settings?

So that's these guys idea of competing with each other: Releasing a slightly faster card but more expensive. This is just stupid.
Where I live there's $50 difference between gtx 1070 and 1080. So what is really the point of this? really, because it will surelly be even more expensive and overpriced than 1080.
Not to mention it will suck at higher resolutions because o that bandwidth. Who buys a card in this price range just for 1080p anyway?

we had that info already before them, why do writers of TPU not look at their own database
