It’s no longer a surprise that NVIDIA will be releasing a certain GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, probably early next month (November). We have seen several leaks these past few days and even a photo of Gigabyte’s GTX 1070 Ti Gaming surfaced as well. Today, Videocardz was able to grab some alleged benchmarks scores of the GTX 1070 Ti. On 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, the GTX 1070 Ti got a graphics score of 9449-9546; on Time Spy it got 6777 points; and on 3DMark 11 Extreme it got 9002 points. If we plug these numbers in the benchmarks scores we got from our graphics cards reviews, you can see the result below.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Benchmark Results
As you can see from the graphs above, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti sits in the middle of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. We haven’t tested and reviewed the RX Vega 56, but we do have the Vega 64 LC. Both in Time Spy and Fire Strike Extreme, our VEGA 64 LC scored higher than the GTX 1080. Meanwhile, according to Videocardz’s data, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is faster than the VEGA 56 but not by a huge margin. It’s just fast enough to beat the VEGA 56 on both Time Spy and Fire Strike Extreme.
It’s obvious that NVIDIA plans to demolish AMD’s VEGA 56 with their upcoming GTX 1070 Ti. But until now stocks of the Vega 56 and Vega 64 seems to be having issues. And custom versions of both cards haven’t hit store shelves yet.
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Specs, Price and Release Date
The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is said to be based on GP104 with 2432 CUDA Cores and 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The specs are very similar with the GTX 1070, except that the GTX 1070 Ti has more CUDA cores and a slightly higher TDP. Clock speeds are not confirmed yet, but it’s been recently rumored that NVIDIA will lock the frequencies to a certain speed; probably so that it won’t cannibalize the GTX 1080.
The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is expected to be released first week of November or during Halloween. Gigabyte already teased that on their Facebook page since last month. It is rumored to have a retail price of $429 USD.
