Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti takes fight to AMD RX Vega 56 for $450

NVIDIA logoFollowing weeks of leaks and rumours Nvidia has made the GTX 1070 Ti graphics card official. A Founders Edition version launches on November 2 for £419/$449/?469, with partner cards from the likes of Asus, MSI, and Zotac expected to launch shortly after.

More powerful than a GTX 1070, but less powerful than a GTX 1080, the GTX 1070 Ti is Nvidia's response to AMD's RX Vega 56 graphics card. Vega 56 proved a potent competitor for the GTX 1070, with better performance for around the same price. Theoretically, the GTX 1070 Ti should be a better performer than Vega 56, but with GPU prices still all over the place thanks to the Ethereum mining craze, it remains to be seen whether retailers will stick close enough to the £419 recommended price to make it a viable competitor.

The 1070 Ti is based on the same GP104 GPU used in the GTX 1080. It features 2,432 CUDA cores (a substantial jump over the 1,920 of the GTX 1070) and 8GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps for a total bandwidth of 256GB/s. The Founders Edition graphics card is equipped with the same five-phase, dual-FET power supply originally used on the GTX 1080, along with the same assortment of DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI connections. The base clock has been bumped up to 1607MHz (versus 1506MHz in the GTX 1070), although the rated boost clock remains the same at 1683MHz.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti

There's not a lot else to say about the GTX 1070 Ti expect that, contrary to some wacky reporting earlier in October, Nvidia hasn't removed the ability to overclock it. The GTX 1080 has only a slight advantage in CUDA cores, which makes it more than likely a GTX 1070 Ti can reach comparable performance when overclocked, even taking into account the GTX 1080's faster GDDR5X memory.

Look out for a review of the GTX 1070 Ti on Ars Technica soon.
