Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti rumours: launch day, selling price and specs
The GTX 1070 is in excess of a 12 months previous now and it seems that Nvidia is about to announce a speedier Ti edition at the end of October fairly than hold out right up until it launches the subsequent-gen Volta cards.
Whether or not this interim card is especially to compete with AMD’s modern Vega 56 is pure speculation, but the rumour mill is now operating at comprehensive tilt.
What specs will the GTX 1070 Ti have?
In accordance to several resources, which include Wccftech, these are the highlights:
- 2432 CUDA cores
- 1607MHz base clock
- 1683MHz increase clock
- 8GB GDDR5 memory
- 8Gb/s memory throughput
Nvidia superfans will presently know that this provides the core count of the 1070 Ti near to the GTX 1080, which has 2560 CUDA cores.
And the base clock velocity of 1607MHz is the exact as the 1080, nevertheless the increase velocity is the exact as the 1070.
If the rumours are real, the new card will have GDDR5 memory as a substitute of GDDR5X – as with the GTX 1080 – and will reportedly have a bandwidth of 8Gb/s, 3Gb/s slower than the 1080.
How a great deal will the 1070 Ti price?
Some experiences reckon it will be about US$70 (about £50) significantly less than the GTX 1080, which signifies that inventory variations could possibly start out at £430 or marginally far more.
The Vega 56 – the cheapest variations at any amount – at the moment price about £460, so the 1070 Ti seems to be priced to undercut it.
When is the GTX 1070 Ti launch day?
It is envisioned that the card will launch at the end of October and – as spotted by Hexus – Gigabyte has posted a Halloween-model image on its Facebook feed with the letters ‘TI’ and a caption “Ti will get you too… eventually… #comingsoon”
The marginally confusing image also has a wallet with a bank notice being lifted by a balloon and the caption “YOU’LL FLOAT TOO”. This is a line from Stephen King’s IT, but fairly what it signifies in relation to a graphics card is anyone’s guess.
Nvidia may perhaps pick out to announce the card at its GTC (GPU Know-how Convention) on 10-twelve October with an on-sale day of 31 October, which could be the motive behind Gigabyte’s image.
We’ll have to hold out and see, but with GTC only a number of times absent, there’s not extensive to go.
