Reports Suggests earlier this week that AIB partners such as Gigabyte are already working custom variants of the GTX 1070 Ti. It’s possible some may even be ready to launch alongside the reference model 1070 Ti on October 26th.
The rumours continue to chug along for Nvidia’s touted GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, this time with several sources claiming the high-end graphics card will be launching on October 26th. Designed to slot in between the GeForce GTX 1070 and the GeForce GTX 1080, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti could be the perfect counterpoint to AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56.
Leaked specs for the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti suggest will feature 2432 CUDA cores, just 5% less than the GeForce GTX 1080 (2560), and 27% more than the GeForce GTX 1070, which has 1920 CUDA cores. It will also feature 8GB GDDR5 memory, the same as the GeForce GTX 1070, rather than the faster GDDR5X memory seen onboard the GTX 1080.
The expected launch price of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is now potentially at the $400 mark, $30 less than we heard last time. In terms of raw performance, leaked specs suggest the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti should only fall around 5% short of the GeForce GTX 1080. Considering most GeForce GTX 1080’s cost 20-30% more than the expected cost of the GTX 1070 Ti, this could make Nvidia’s upcoming GPU quite a bargain.
If everything we’ve heard is true then it’s a graphics card which will sit a little awkwardly between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, but at a price and spec that could make it a more attractive option than both.
