Rumor: Zotac tweet basically confirms the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti

Zotac's official Twitter account seems to have added another log to the fire this morning concerning the existence of a new member in Nvidia's GeForce 10-series lineup. The company tweeted out a now-removed post with a picture of three video cards and a reference to a "GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Series" product family. The tweet did not include any additional information about clock speeds, shader core counts, or memory type, and the link in the Tweet didn't go anywhere. The image suggests that the company will offer at least three distinct flavors of GeForce GTX 1070 Ti with different PCB sizes and either two or three fans.

Nvidia hasn't yet confirmed the existence of any potential GeForce GTX 1070 Ti product, but Zotac's tweet suggests that such a product is in the wings and that it will arrive soon. The rollout of such a card at this point just before the holiday shopping season also seems to confirm CEO Jensen Huang's comments that the company feels its Pascal architecture "is just unbeatable" for the remainder of the year, at least.

As Jeff has speculated, the naming of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti suggests a card that will occupy a performance niche somewhere between the GeForce GTX 1070 and the GeForce GTX 1080. The GTX 1070 hasn't been updated since its release back in July 2016, but its GeForce GTX 1080 sibling received a memory clock speed boost with 11 GT/s chips in April of this year. Stay tuned for more details if and when we get them.

    What’s the point of a 1070Ti?

    The performance gulf between the two isn’t that big, and a hot-clocked 1070Ti will nip the heels of a 1080 anyway.

    Seems like a waste?

    I’m not beign facetious either – I’d love someone to spell it out for me if you can!

      Basically everything in the NVidia product stack moves down one price level.

      1060 gets cheaper
      1070 is now around 1-1.25x price of 1060
      1070Ti takes place of 1070
      1080 likely gets discontinued – will be around for a while for a small premium until inventory clears out
      1080Ti drops to again 1-1.25x 1080 prices

      And we wait for Volta in 6-9 months. Only difference between this and the last few series have been A) the 1070 was stronger than normal – further from the 1060 and closer to the 1080 and B) They released the 1080Ti like 3-6 months earlier than usual. Killed the Vega before it even had a chance.

        Thanks, Dave! Appreciate the detailed response mate, and what you say makes sense.

        It’ll be interesting, if it goes the way you’ve suggested, to see what the 1080 does on the second-hand market. I’m on a 980Ti (which kind of contributes to my ‘why bother’ perspective, I guess), but if I start seeing 1080s pop up around the $400 mark, I’ll probably jump. Few more frames in ARK wouldn’t hurt 🙂

    Rumor or no rumor the hype is nauseating.

    What has been? Two months of free advertising -for a rumor! day after day- on all hardware news sites for a videocard that no-one needs and almost has no market place.

    Where’s the 1180? We are [i<]a bit[/i<] lacking on performance in videogames even for 1080p: [url<]http://youtu.be/WEK1XvwQNJ4?t=221[/url<]

      If your post was clever satire aimed at pointing out the irony of the last 2 years of Vega hype then I apologize for the downthumbs.

      But if you were serious then my only regret is that I couldn’t add more downthumbs.

        • Aquilino

        Ok. So if anybody is dumb we all have to be dumb.

        And you are comparing a single videocard that nobody was sure that it even existed vs. a new generation of videocards that could add competition on a monopolized market. That’s fair.

          Uh… wait you were actually serious when you made that idiot post?

          As for “monopolized markets” the fact that AMD has basically monopolized and ruined the console market in a manner that has had negative spillover into PC gaming ought to be addressed too.

      To get a meaningful upgrade over the 1080 to warrant a new 1180, Pascal would probably need a process shrink. Since 10 nm at TSMC hasn’t given us anything larger than the A11, I don’t think that the 1180 would come anytime before next summer.

    Now why does ‘Tweet’ always reminds me of Donald Trump these days?

      • smilingcrow

      Because it’s very similar to the word Twat maybe!

    The GTX1070Ti is rumored to launch tomorrow (10/26) does NDA prevent you from even sharing that info?

      • Jeff Kampman
      • 2 years ago

      What NDA? We know as much as anybody else on the street does at this point (i.e. nothing).

        Teaser photos are legal now aren’t they? (based on past precedent of Threadripper)

        Will keep this post and feed you crow when Oct 26th becomes confirmed tomorrow. How would you like it prepared? Grilled or Pan-Fried?

    GTX-1070’s of unusual size? I don’t think they exist.

      • Redocbew
      • 2 years ago

      Inconceivable!

        I do not think this means what you think it means.

      +3 for a [i<]Princess Bride[/i<] reference.
