The rumours were true, and Nvidia has announced the GTX 1070 Ti. The GTX 1070 had five SMMs turned off and only 1920 cores, so this is a significant step up in performance. Nvidia's partners have built cards with thermals and power accessories that allow gamers to push performance way past stock specifications. Board partners made a decision to use their GTX 1080 coolers and PCB designs for GTX 1070 Ti rather than GTX 1070's. Nvidia has also partnered with Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Zotac, Palit, Galax, PNY and Inno3D to launch the new graphic card.
This week the folks at NVIDIA have revealed their NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card with Pascal GPU technology inside. There's a limit of two per customer, and if you're insane enough to pick up a pair, you can also grab an SLI bridge from there for $40. The street price will vary due to the existence of cryptocurrency mining. It is also good news for gamers who might want to save a few bucks over the GeForce GTX 1080, while achieving similar performance. What's more, it comprises of 2,432 active CUDA cores that are divided into 19 clusters (officially known as Streaming Multiprocessors). Sales will begin worldwide on November 2. With this power, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will be able to handle DirectX 12, 4K HDR and VR content easily.
Clock speeds are reported at 1607MHz base and 1683MHz boost, which is the same as the 1080 and 1070 respectively.
This system uses vapor chamber cooling as and an external design much like its predecessors, using the 1070's 256-bit bus for an overall memory bandwidth of 256GBps as well.
