Introduction

 

It hasn't been a secret that NVIDIA has been working on the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, with rumors beginning in the first half of September, making it a direct reaction to the increased - but still wimpy threat from AMD in the form of Radeon RX Vega 56. RX Vega 56 was the stand out crowd from a release of three different Vega cards that were all mediocre.

NVIDIA doesn't want to feel threatened at any price point, so it decided to make something faster than the GTX 1070, but slower than the GTX 1080 - in order to totally crush any chance of RX Vega 56 living. AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56 is a great card, but it requires 2 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors as well as runs incredibly hot and loud in reference form.

 

 

NVIDIA has built the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti for gamers that are running 3440x1440 UltraWide gaming displays, or want to game at maximum graphics settings at 2560x1440 with AA enabled. This is where most of the higher-end market sits, while everything else wanting something faster would now skip the GTX 1080 and head straight into the muscular arms of the beefy GTX 1080 Ti. GTX 1070 Ti is that good, and NVIDIA has really molded it perfectly.

 

 

Pricing & Availability

 

NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition will cost $449.99 and is available today, November 2, on NVIDIA's own website. All of the custom cards are available now, with certain brands like MSI, ZOTAC and ASUS having custom GeForce GTX 1070 Ti cards available immediately. I have in hand:

 

  • MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Titanium
  • ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition

 

Reviews on these custom GTX 1070 Ti cards will be released over the next week or so, and I'm going to be testing Battlegrounds, Destiny 2, Project CARS 2, and Wolfenstein II on them all.
