In a world of constant product leaks and early product listings, it should come as no surprise that specifications for NVIDIA’s rumored GTX 1070 Ti have leaked. The folks over at Tech ARP have updated their original story about the GTX 1070 Ti to included additional details as they have been obtained. According to Tech ARP’s sources, the GTX 1070 Ti will be launched on October 26th with an MSRP of $429, and availability beginning on November 2nd.
Spec wise, the GTX 1070 Ti is based on the NVIDIA GP104 GPU found in the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. With 2432 GPU cores, the GTX 1070 Ti fits squarely between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. The base clock is set at 1607 MHz, same as the GTX 1080, and the boost clock comes in at 1683 MHz, same as the GTX 1070. 8GB of GDDR5 will give the GTX 1070 Ti 256 GB/s of memory bandwidth, matching the GTX 1070, but below the GTX 1080’s 320 GB/s GDDR5X solution.
Comparing the leaked specifications of the GTX 1070 Ti to those of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56, it is clear that the two cards will be in direct competition.
With October 26th right around the corner, and Halloween not long after, gamers have a new “treat” to look forward to. Hopefully there are no availability issues, mining-based or otherwise, that turn this upcoming release into a “trick”.
