Nvidia finally announce the GTX 1070 Ti, and it's an overclocking monster

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti

Nvidia have finally confirmed the details for their latest graphics card - the GTX 1070 Ti. While its existence has been far from a secret, Nvidia have now locked down and released the specs and pricing of their most likely final Pascal-based card. You never know, they might always have a 1060 Ti up their sleeves...

Only the best gaming monitors can make the most out of that shiny new graphics card.

The GTX 1070 Ti will launch worldwide on November 2, 2017 to the tune of $449 / £419. This puts the Pascal-based card in the prime spot between the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 in terms of pricing. However, it unfortunately means we will have to wait a little longer for definitive performance benchmark results.

The GTX 1070 Ti features 2,432 CUDA cores - entailing 152 texture units, and 64 ROPS. This is only 128 cores less than the GTX 1080, essentially a single streaming multiprocessor (SM) block removed from the full-fat GP104 GPU. The GTX 1070 Ti will feature 8GB of GDDR5 memory, running at 8Gbps speeds for a total bandwidth of 256GB/s.

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti

Nvidia claim they “designed the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti to be an overclocking monster, with plenty of headroom for gamers to crank up the clock speeds.” Well, that dispels those rumours

Founders edition cards are available from today on the Nvidia GeForce site and, thankfully, will arrive at MSRP. A heap of third-party cards will also launch alongside the Nvidia reference card, although these cards likely won’t be featuring any factory overclocks at first.

The GTX 1070 Ti slots in right between the GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 in Nvidia’s product stack, so it comes at no surprise that early performance leaks put the card right between these two cards in terms of performance. With Nvidia’s latest claims of fantastic overclocking performance, it would be unrealistic to believe these cards may be able to eke out performance similar to the GTX 1080 with only a little convincing.

Check back on November 2nd for our full review along with in-depth benchmarking of the GTX 1070 Ti.
