Nvidia partners working around GTX 1070 Ti factory-overclock ban

Nvidia claims the 1070 Ti offers more than three times the performance of previous-generation graphics cards. It aims to be the main rival of AMD's recently launched Radeon RX Vega 56. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has one CUDA cluster disabled.

Pre-orders for the GTX 1070Ti are available at the moment, you can order now from Amazon, NewEgg, BestBuy etc. It has the same GP104 GPU design as the GeForce GTX 1080. The GTX 1070 Ti is more powerful than the existing GTX 1070 similar to what GTX 1080 Ti was to GTX 1080.

Nvidia has unveiled the pricing, specs, and release date for its upcoming graphics card the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. This is a significant improvement than the 1920 cores in the GTX 1070. However, this price tag might slightly vary depending on the 3rd party vendors. Likewise, the base clock speed sits at 1607MHz as opposed to 1070's 1506Mhz base speed.

There are a couple of custom Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti models that you can choose from that will provide you with custom coolers which means lower temps and better performance. For all intents and purposes, it's very almost as powerful as a GTX 1080: you have the same core clock speed as the pricier board, and only slight hits to the CUDA core count (2,432 vs. 2,560), texture units (152 vs. 160) and boost clock (1,683MHz vs. 1,733MHz).

The GTX 1070Ti goes on sale starting from today. Board partners chose to use their GTX 1080 coolers and PCB designs for GTX 1070 Ti rather than GTX 1070's.

Performance in both gaming and mining will need to be thoroughly tested (and we'll do just that with our own review soon), but Nvidia's Pascal architecture has proven to be extremely malleable and reliable already.
