GTX 1070 Ti: Coming Soon

NVIDIA is rumored to be mere weeks away from launching its new GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card, something that will completely bury AMD's luke-warm-but-runs-so-hot Radeon RX Vega 56, but the new rumors are very interesting.


Our friends at eTeknix are reporting that the GTX 1070 Ti "can't be overclocked", with the site saying: "An industry insider told eTeknix that the GTX 1070 Ti can't be overclocked. In addition, we've been informed that NVIDIA will not release any reference cards and all AIB partner cards will be locked to the same speeds. However, price and aesthetics are expected to differ across partner cards". If this rumor is true, it would be a big change in direction for NVIDIA and its board partners.

EXPreview also reported similar news, where they said: "NVIDIA will be fully unified market GTX 1070 Ti frequency, that is, regardless of which you buy a GTX 1070 Ti their frequency will be fixed at 1607MHz-1683MHz , if you want to be stronger performance only Can be manual overclocking, for non-hardware enthusiasts are not friendly, or graphics card manufacturers have to surprise, such as get a software overclocking to avoid restrictions on NVIDIA".

NVIDIA is reportedly launching the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti with 2432 CUDA cores, up from the 1920 CUDA cores on GTX 1070, while both cards will have 8GB of GDDR5 RAM and a 256-bit memory bus. The GTX 1070 Ti however, will bump up the TMU count to 152, up from 120 TMUs on the GTX 1070, while both cards have 64 ROPs. GTX 1070 Ti will push 7.8 TFLOPs of compute performance, up significantly from the 5.8 TFLOPs on the standard GTX 1070. GTX 1070 Ti will also require 180W, while just 150W is required on the GTX 1070.
