The first 3DMark benchmark scores of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card have surfaced online, suggesting that the card could well be on par or even slightly ahead of AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 56, at least when it comes to synthetic benchmark performance.
In the 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme test, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti manages a score of around 9500, slightly ahead of the Radeon RX Vega 56 in Balanced mode. However, in the Turbo mode, Radeon RX Vega 56 jumps ahead slightly. For reference, a regular GeForce GTX 1070 manages a score of under 9000 in the same test.
Moving on to 3DMark Time Spy, the GTX 1070 Ti scores around 6800 points, higher than the Radeon RX Vega 56 in both Balanced and Turbo modes. The GTX 1070 scores around 6100 points in the test, while the GTX 1080 score around 7800. This suggests the GTX 1070 Ti will be much closer to the GTX 1070 in terms of performance than the GTX 1080. And if rumors are to be believed, the upcoming GTX 1070 Ti will not overclock quite well, so you will not be able to push the card much to even get close to the GTX 1080 performance wise. However, we should keep in mind that these are only early scores, the final benchmark performance could potentially be slightly better.
