Just as the rumors had suggested, NVIDIA today announced its latest Pascal-based GPU, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. As its name clearly suggests, the GTX 1070 Ti is positioned between NVIDIA’s GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 GPUs.
The new GTX 1070 Ti is based on NVIDIA’s GP104 silicon, just like the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 GPUs. However, instead of just 1920 CUDA cores on the GTX 1070, the GTX 1070 Ti features 2432 CUDA cores. It also includes 152 Texture Mapping Units and 64 ROPs. When it comes to memory, the GTX 1070 Ti is identical to the GTX 1070 with 8GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8.00 GHz for a total bandwidth of 256GB/s. The 180W TDP GPU features a 1607 MHz base clock and 1683 MHz boost clock. In terms of performance, NVIDIA claims that the new GPU delivers double the performance of the GeForce GTX 970. Unlike what some reports had been suggesting, it doesn’t look like NVIDIA has any plans of limiting the overclocking potential of the GPU. In its press release, NVIDIA mentioned that it designed the GTX 1070 Ti to be an “overclocking monster with plenty of headroom for gamers to crank up the clock speeds”.
