Nvidia makes the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti official

It's official: Nvidia announced the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti this morning. The GP104 GPU on board the card will have 2432 stream processors, 152 texture units, and 64 ROPs. That chip will be paired with 8 GB of GDDR5 RAM running at 8 GT/s on a 256-bit bus for a total of 256 GB/s of memory bandwidth. If you want to know how the GTX 1070 Ti stacks up against a wide range of today's graphics cards, we already did that math. The short story is that the GTX 1070 Ti is most of a GTX 1080 with a potentially lower price tag.

The GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition gets the same vapor-chamber cooler and five-phase "dual-FET" power-delivery subsystem as the GTX 1080 Founders Edition. It'll also inherit the same eight-pin power plug and 180W board power rating from its fully-enabled GP104 sibling. Reference clocks ring in at 1607 MHz base and 1683 MHz boost speeds. Contrary to rumors, overclocking will still be supported on the GTX 1070 Ti, and Nvidia's choice to clothe the chip in GTX 1080 FE raiments should only bolster its headroom.

Nvidia says the GTX 1070 Ti is an ideal upgrade for GTX 970 owners. The company claims its latest card will generally offer those folks a 2X boost in performance. The real job of the card would seem to be taking the wind out of the Radeon RX Vega 56's sails, though. Indeed, Nvidia's internal performance numbers claim anywhere from a 6% to 16% typical lead over the RX Vega 56, excluding a couple outliers.

Nvidia says the GTX 1070 Ti will enjoy "immediate availability" on November 2 with a suggested price of $449. We're already seeing a wide range of partner cards pop up, and we'll be covering them as we can get to them. With GTX 1080 cards still going for a little over $500 and up, though, reviews will have to tease out whether GTX 1070 Ti cards offer enough of the performance of the GTX 1080 for enough of a discount to make them compelling picks. We hope to find out soon.

    I suspect the only reason Nvidia hasn’t bother releasing a “1060Ti” (50-66% of a GP104) is because they don’t want to hurt the margins on their current 1060 6GiB (cheaper to make then GP104) and AMD hasn’t release a part SKU outpaces 1060 6GiB by a good margin is on the tail of the 1070.

    I supposed that AMD could release a “Vega 48” but I suspect HBM supply issues alone prevent them from selling subpar Vega 10 silicon.

    FYI: You can pre-order the GTX 1070 Ti FOUNDERS EDITION directly from Nvidia for $449 with free shipping.

    And yesterday Jeff said all those ppl knew nothing about the1070ti. Going to paste his quote when I get home.

      • chuckula
      • 2 years ago

      Here’s what he said:
      [quote<]What NDA? We know as much as anybody else on the street does at this point (i.e. nothing).[/quote<] I don't see what's incorrect about that statement unless you think he had NDA'd information and was lying about it.

        • mudcore
        • 2 years ago

        I can see where someone is confused by the exact intention of the statement. There clearly was an NDA, some outlets clearly had samples on hand before today, etc. That statement isn’t “I haven’t signed an NDA.” It was questioning the existence of one at all and that people “on the street” don’t know more than he does.

        Seems an outlet needs a YT channel these days to get early information.

          • Jeff Kampman

          My statement specifically addressed the original question posed by another commenter (“The GTX1070Ti is rumored to launch tomorrow (10/26) does NDA prevent you from even sharing that info?”). The response “What NDA?” was supposed to be a pithy way of saying that we hadn’t signed one and hadn’t been pre-briefed, just like any other member of the general public. I’d urge people to read my words in context.

            • Jeff Kampman
            • 2 years ago

            Also, we weren’t the only site in the dark ahead of the launch; Anandtech also claims it wasn’t briefed:

            [quote<]"The million dollar question of course is "why now?" and while NVIDIA hasn't said anything about the product - in fact they haven't even briefed the press ahead of today's announcement - the obvious X factor right now is AMD."[/quote<] [url<]https://www.anandtech.com/show/11966/nvidia-reveals-geforce-gtx-1070-ti-available-for-preorders-today[/url<]

            • mudcore
            • 2 years ago

            I would still interpret your response as a shoot down of any NDA existing, not just a statement of you having not signed one. But whatever, clearly your statement wasn’t confusing at all and it’s the readers fault.

            And about Anandtech… so I’m right. The manufacturers have nearly all decided if a website does not have an influential YT aka social media presence then you’re probably not going to get info.

            EDIT: It’s a strange approach and attitude you guys (legacy hardware news sites) are taking in my opinion. From a viewers perspective you guys were acting more ignorant than someone who browses forums/social media regularly. Meanwhile a YT channel had a 1070 Ti in hand and was doing a tear on it the moment you guys were just finding out?

            Anandtech’s statement has this in it and from my perspective they’re either admitting they’re entirely out of the loop (and I guess TR is too) or they’re lying? It doesn’t make sense to say this; “in fact they haven’t even briefed the press ahead of today’s announcement “

        He said anyone on the street knows nothing. That turned out to be untrue. Jeff was speading fake news again.

    Awful tight pricing gap to stick a SKU into. Especially in the $400 – $500 range, $50 isn’t significant. Unless they lower the 1070 to somewhere in the $375 range (which would be nice!) the 1070Ti will either overshadow the 1070 (if those two are close in performance) or the 1080 (if those two are close)

    • techguy

    I like the idea of this card – thanks AMD for releasing a competitive product that forced Nvidia to respond.

    What I don’t like is the price – thanks AMD for only having 1 competitive SKU.

    I bought a MSI GTX 1070 X 8G for $369.00 about 6 months ago and still feeling pretty good about it.

    • gmskking
    • 2 years ago

    Might as well just buy a 1080. I don’t get it.

      • jihadjoe

      It’s for miners!

      The 1080 sucks for mining because of GDDR5X. This is nearly a 1080 in terms of active compute units, but with plain old GDDR5.

    • Krogoth

    It is a “1080” replacement as Nvidia phases out 1080 for upcoming Volta SKUs.

    And “officially” over-priced at Newegg.com @ $469-$519
    [url<]https://www.newegg.com/VGA/EventSaleStore/ID-1170?utm%5Fmedium=Email&utm%5Fsource=IGNEFL102617&cm%5Fmmc=EMC%2DIGNEFL102617%2D%5F%2DEMC%2D102617%2DIndex%2D%5F%2D1070Ti%2D%5F%2DHero&Order=PRICE[/url<] Why not just go for a low end 1080? I guess we can hope this pushes regular 1070 prices down... Nearly all models listed on Newegg have a Boost Clock of 1683 MHz. Only two list higher clocks and ASUS states it is available with GPU Tweak only apparently which really means Overclocked doesn't it??? The GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GAMING 8G with: Core Clock 1645 MHz Boost Clock 1733 MHz And the ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1070 Ti with: GPU Tweak (software-enable only): 1759 MHz Gaming Mode (Default): 1683 MHz

      You’ll be waiting a while!

    Did I sleep a week? Wouldn’t immediate availability mean October 26th instead of November 2nd?

      • chuckula

      They meant immediate availability of marketing slides!

      • JosiahBradley
      • 2 years ago

      They are up for sale just pre-orders:

      You did see the quotes, right? Just imagine Doctor Evil saying “Immediate Availability”.

    [KROGOTH-HIPSTER MODE ENGAGED!]

    I was unimpressed with these parts [i<]before it was cool![/i<] More seriously: I'm mostly unimpressed because it's just another market niche product so there really isn't anything new here. The 1070Ti looks to be OK but it's not like there's much to say about it other than it's faster (and more expensive) than the 1070 but slower (and slightly less expensive) than the 1080.

      • Pville_Piper
      • 2 years ago

      I have to agree… Why come out with this, lower the 1080 a bit and forget about the Vega 56.
      I mean, was anybody waiting for this? Gee, why not come out with a 1060 ti, about as much room between the 1060 and the 1070 as there is between the 1070 and the 1080

      • NovusBogus
      • 2 years ago

      I’d be more excited about something that bridges the gap between 1060 and 1070, than 1070 and 1080. Maybe the output is sized well for those 21:9 curved displays or something.
