NVIDIA Announces the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Graphics Card

NVIDIA today announced a refresh of the performance-segment of its graphics card lineup, with the new GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. This card is positioned to fill the rather large performance and price/performance gap between the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080. Based on the same "GP104" silicon as those two, the GTX 1070 Ti makes the "Pascal" architecture look fresh again, in the wake of AMD's Radeon RX Vega family launch. The GTX 1070 Ti is endowed with 2,432 CUDA cores, just 128 fewer than the GTX 1080. Its TMU count is proportionally lower at 152 (out of 160). It carries over its entire memory sub-system from the GTX 1070, in featuring 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8.00 GHz, which works out to a memory bandwidth of 256 GB/s.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti also features marginally lower clock speeds than the GTX 1080, with its core clocked at 1607 MHz, with a GPU Boost frequency of 1683 MHz, compared to the 1506/1683 MHz clocks of the GTX 1070, and the 1607/1733 MHz of the GTX 1080. So it has the nominal clocks of the GTX 1080 and the GPU Boost clocks of the GTX 1070. NVIDIA appears to have a limited stash of GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition (reference-design) cards, although it's unclear if the company will sell them as a separate SKU. The MSRP for this SKU is USD $429. NVIDIA's AIC (add-in card) partners will roll out their custom-design cards immediately.

An overclocked 1070 reaches and surpasses a stock 1080, I really don't know what we're talking about here.

Wait...wha?! How did Nvidia manage to sneak this past us?

Price gap... yep.. Performance.. not so much... especially when you consider the gap from 1080 and 1080Ti...

Also, there is a typo... you want "rather" instead of rater. :)

EDIT: Looks someone edited it now. :)

I need a Titan XpTI.... GOGOGO..... or just some VOLTA POWER........

This is the 1060Ti for all I care.
192 bit 10 GHz ~ 256 bit 8 Ghz.
6 or 8GB pretty much OK frame buffer for me. Remember the GTX 660 Ti shared the same core count as 670. Where is that now. 2432 or 1920 is all the same. Especially when bottlenecked.

If they release a 1060 Ti then it might disrupt the entire discrete graphics industry made up of 2 players. Then the two companies won't be able to pass off the facade of competition. Almost every major player in computer hardware is part of the conspiracy, right? ;)

It's still more exciting than anything from the other team…

I bet it's probably out of stock already, this "1080 miner's edition".

And where's your backing up for this? Also, I guess you can overclock a 1080 as well so...

Looks like a somewhat pointless product, or Nvidia is delaying Volta and wants to make some more money of the chips that doesn't quite make it to 1080 grade...

I think nVidia is has two things going on here with the 1070Ti launch:

1.) Given the competition, they don't feel the need to release Volta at an accelerated pace. They'll likely release it to the professional/server market first and wait on releasing consumer parts until they need to do it to compete.
2.) They want something on the market for the holiday season to compete with the Vega 56, and they release they cut the GTX1070 down too much for it to compete with Vega 56.

Looks like Nvidia is just adding the cherry on top since VEGA 56 is still priced above the msrp of the 1070Ti's $429.

IDK, I guess if you haven't yet bought a card for 1440p is nice(r), while for 4K it's still entry at best, Getting into VR is perhaps a good choice, but now right kind feel as another said it's a miners version, but in that case not near a Vega56. Face it... it's just a way to off-load binned chips and one-up Vega. But even for that Nvidia didn't push the envelope knowing even once Vega production start really flowing (and say miner stop buying) even then it can't go to "war" on price. This 1070Ti just premium grade market milk, and that not meant as derogatory as it sounds it's just the way things are tripping-up.

£20+ difference atm comparing to 1070 to 1070ti and then £40+ difference for a 1080 non ti.

Let's see how long this GPU stays in stock. I am happy with the V56 and will be for some time

As suspected, the GP104 will remain a thorn in AMD's side, that pesky fast and efficient bitch.
