NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is a final nail in the coffin of the it-was-on-life-support-anyway Radeon RX Vega 56. AMD had quite the winner with the RX Vega 56 as it offered GTX 1070-1080 level performance, an area that NVIDIA had a large gap between its SKUs... until GTX 1070 Ti.
Another area where GTX 1070 Ti will do well is with cryptocurrency mining, as the GTX 1070 was one of the best value for money graphics cards for miners, the GTX 1070 Ti will only be better again. The controlled GPU clocks also make sense, but I really want to sink my teeth into the power consumption of these cards. That'll be interesting - GTX 1070/1080 against GTX 1070 Ti and RX Vega 56.
The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti really is a knee-jerk reaction from NVIDIA against AMD's increased Vega threat, and it drops on the day that AMD announces its new Ryzen Mobile processors with Vega GPU tech. Interesting, isn't it?
NVIDIA has the power to do this; they have the money to make another graphics card without touching their bottom line. This isn't good for AMD at all, as they haven't even got custom RX Vega graphics cards onto the market yet, and NVIDIA is already throwing another log onto the fire.
