The GTX 1070 is about a calendar year old now and it seems that Nvidia is about to announce a a lot quicker Ti version at the stop of October rather than wait until eventually it launches the following-gen Volta cards.
Irrespective of whether or not this interim card is specially to contend with AMD’s recent Vega fifty six is pure speculation, but the rumour mill is now jogging at whole tilt.
What specs will the GTX 1070 Ti have?
According to numerous sources, together with Wccftech, these are the highlights:
- 2432 CUDA cores
- 1607MHz base clock
- 1683MHz increase clock
- 8GB GDDR5 memory
- 8Gb/s memory throughput
Nvidia superfans will previously know that this delivers the main rely of the 1070 Ti shut to the GTX 1080, which has 2560 CUDA cores.
And the base clock velocity of 1607MHz is the very same as the 1080, nevertheless the increase velocity is the very same as the 1070.
If the rumours are accurate, the new card will have GDDR5 memory in its place of GDDR5X – as with the GTX 1080 – and will reportedly have a bandwidth of 8Gb/s, 3Gb/s slower than the 1080.
How substantially will the 1070 Ti price tag?
Some reviews reckon it will be all around US$70 (all around £50) less than the GTX 1080, which suggests that inventory variations may possibly start off at £430 or a little much more.
The Vega fifty six – the most economical variations at any rate – presently price tag all around £460, so the 1070 Ti appears to be priced to undercut it.
When is the GTX 1070 Ti release date?
It’s expected that the card will start at the stop of October and – as noticed by Hexus – Gigabyte has posted a Halloween-design impression on its Fb feed with the letters ‘TI’ and a caption “Ti will get you too… eventually… #comingsoon”
The a little bewildering impression also has a wallet with a lender notice getting lifted by a balloon and the caption “YOU’LL FLOAT TOO”. This is a line from Stephen King’s IT, but very what it suggests in relation to a graphics card is anyone’s guess.
Nvidia might choose to announce the card at its GTC (GPU Engineering Conference) on ten-12 October with an on-sale date of 31 October, which could be the rationale behind Gigabyte’s impression.
We’ll have to wait and see, but with GTC only a several times away, there’s not long to go.
