The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is based on GP104 GPU, like the GTX 1070. This Pascal-based card from NVIDIA is a level up from its predecessor. The card is launched to bridge the gap between GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. It takes advantage of the pre-existing cards’ board designs and coding solutions.
The new titanium version offers comparatively higher performance at a lower price point. It sports 2,432 NVIDIA CUDA Cores compared to 1080’s 2560 cores, as it disables one SMM cluster of 128 cores. This is a significant improvement from the 1920 cores in GTX 1070.
It also offers an impressive base clock speed of 1,607 MHz and a boost frequency of 1,683 MHz, akin the GTX 1080. The memory specifications remain unchanged, with 8GB GDDR5 memory. The memory runs at a speed of 8 GB/s across a 256-bit bus.
The company stated, “We designed the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti to be an overclocking monster with plenty of headroom for gamers to crank up the clock speeds”. They also added, “Our partners have built cards with thermals and power supplies that allow gamers to push performance way past stock specifications”.
The GTX 1000 series is claimed to offer a 3X faster performance compared to the last generation cards. The features 1070 Ti include support for simultaneous multi-projection, VR content, two-way SLI, G-Sync, and display resolutions up to 7680 × 4320 at 60Hz.
The cards will hit the global market on November 2, 2017. According to the company, the card will be available in 238 countries. However, it is available for preorders from retailers and system builders. Customers can avail the upper mid-range card at a price of $449.
