Detailed Specs

The GeForce GTX 1070 is powered by the same GP104 GPU that was used in the GTX 1080, with 7.2 billion transistors. The GTX 1070 Ti has 2432 CUDA cores, 152 TMUs, and 19 SMs, while there's 8GB of GDDR5 clocked at 8Gbps on a 256-bit memory bus.

This is compared to the 1920 CUDA cores on the GTX 1070, and its 120 TMUs, and 15 SMs. It has the same 8GB of GDDR5 @ 8Gbps, though. The use of 8GB of GDDR5 @ 8Gbps on the GTX 1070 Ti keeps the reigns on its performance, as it would beat out the GTX 1080 if it were using GDDR5X @ 10Gbps.

NVIDIA has set the GPU clocks at 1607MHz for base, and 1683MHz boost on the GTX 1070 Ti. This is faster than the GTX 1070 and its 1506/1683MHz, but only with its higher base GPU clocks.

With a beefed up GPU over the GTX 1070, but the same VRAM, the GTX 1070 Ti has much more compute performance with 7.8 TFLOPs against the 5.8 TFLOPs on the GTX 1070. A considerable improvement in GPU grunt, while the 8GB of GDDR5 @ 8Gbps keeps it from being a cheaper monster than the GTX 1080.

The single 8-pin PCIe power connectors means we have a 180W TDP, with NVIDIA using the same vapor chamber cooling technology that was used on the 250W GPUs. This means the Founders Edition still has great cooling capacity, yet we're still seeing 84C temperatures under load and power consumption of around 270W total.
