It is likely that Nvidia is going to announce a faster version of the GeForce GTX 1070 as GeForce GTX 1070 Ti version by the end of October instead of waiting for the launch of the next-gen Volta cards.
The confirmation of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti on the new MSI Afterburner Beta has raised curiosity over the expected features of this new graphics card. The new Nvidia graphics card is expected to have 2,432 cuda cores, with a 1,607MHz base clock, which is the same as the GTX 1080 along with 1,683MHz boost clock that is similar to the GTX 1070.
The competition of this interim card is narrowed down to AMD’s recent Vega 56 and the grapevine is abuzz with that speculation.
The specifications of GTX 1070 Ti include highlights like:
2432 CUDA cores8GB GDDR5 memory
1683MHz boost clock
8Gb/s memory throughput
The GTX 1080 has 2560 CUDA cores, and Nvidia fans are aware of the fact that this brings the core count of the 1070 Ti close to the predecessor.
The base clock speed of 1607MHz is the same as the 1080, while the boost speed is the same as the 1070. The new card is also expected to have GDDR5 memory rather than GDDR5X, similar to the GTX 1080, and shall most probably have a bandwidth of 8Gb/s, which is about 3Gb/s slower than the 1080.
According to WCCFTech, the estimated cost of the GTX 1070 Ti is $429, which falls somewhere between the prices of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. The official announcement of the card is scheduled for October 26, while November 2 is the date given for its availability on-the-shelf.
