NVIDIA Introducies GeForce GTX 1070 Ti

The Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti comes sporting 2,432 NVIDIA CUDA Cores, well above the original Nvidia GTX 1070's 1,920 core count. As its name clearly suggests, the GTX 1070 Ti is positioned between NVIDIA's GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 GPUs. The GTX 1070 had five SMMs turned off and only 1920 cores, so this is a significant step up in performance.

Furthermore NVIDIA is running a Destiny 2 promotion providing the game for free with a GeForce GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti, a pre-built gaming PC or laptop with NVIDIA GPUs inside.

The GTX 1070 Ti will offer a 1607MHz base clock and 1683MHz boost clock, compared to the GTX 1070 at 1506/1683MHz and the GTX 1080 at 1607/1733MHz. Sliding a card in between the GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 is somewhat of a balancing act, and there is bound to be some overlap. The 1070 Ti does raise the board TDP to 180W, matching the 1080's TDP, which isn't suprising considering the other specs.

How much will the 1070 Ti cost?

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti-based graphics cards will begin shipping November 2 - across 238 countries and territories - from the NVIDIA GeForce Partner Network, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. At that price point, it's looking to give the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 a run for its money.

When is the GTX 1070 Ti release date?

That's not typically the case, meaning GTX 1080 levels of performance just got $50 cheaper, and perhaps we'll see even lower prices on the GTX 1070-that hit its all-time low of $350 back in February/March, before the cryptocurrency rush caused a surge in prices.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is created to handle the graphical demands of DirectX 12, HDR, immersive VR and scream through games like Destiny 2, Shadows of War, Star Wars Battlefront II and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
