Nvidia is expected to introduce its newest Geforce 10 series graphics card tomorrow, Oct. 26th. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is expected to become available in the market starting Nov. 2nd.

And just recently, it was also confirmed that a number of custom graphics cards will also be sold at launch: ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, PALIT, PNY, and ZOTAC. Before divulging the specifications custom graphics cards, here are some things we need to remember about the specifications of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti [VIDEO].

Hardware specifications

The upcoming GPU uses an entirely different variant known as GP104-300. This is closer to GTX 1080 in terms of specifications because it only has one SM disabled (19 out of 20).

This means that GTX 1070 Ti has a total of 2432 Stream Processor (CUDA Cores) – 128 less than GTX 1080.

This also translates to 152 TMUs and 64 ROPs. GTX 1070 Ti is expected to have 8GB GDDR5 running at 8Gbps and 256GB/s memory bandwidth. The upcoming graphics card will have the same base clock as GTX 1080 at 1607MHz, but have the same boost clock as the non-Ti version at 1683MHz.

Custom graphics cards

One of the first NVIDIA AIB partners which confirmed the arrival of their GTX 1070 Ti version is ASUS. According to VideoCardz.com, ASUS will have three variants: two (2) ROG STRIX and one from the TURBO series. Last week, ASUS posted a clue on Twitter what customers should expect in the coming days.

MSI is reportedly coming up with five variants, namely: Aero, Armor, Duke, Gaming (or Gaming X), and Titanium (based on QuickSilver).

These cards are reportedly going to have the same base and boost clock like the original NVIDIA model. Meanwhile, Macau-based AIB partner ZOTAC will deliver two variants: AMP Extreme and Mini (a clone of GTX 1080 Mini).

Fan and cooler tweaks

Gigabyte is coming up with only one version of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce graphics card. As reported by VideoCardz.com, this G1 Gaming Series GPU will have a single 8-pin power connector, a total of five (5) display outputs (3xDP + DVI + HDMI), triple-fan and dual-slot WindForce 3X cooler with ‘Fan Stop’ logo. This means that the fans will only run when a certain temperature is reached; thus, it will only use minimal power.

PNY is reportedly going to release two variants of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce graphics card. Integrated with one of these GPUs is a dual-fan cooler which was not used in the non-Ti model. PALIT is also expected to release at least two models: Dual Fan and JetStream with an RGB-enabled dual-fan cooler.

At least four (4) EVGA GTX 1070 Ti variants are expected to become available by November.

Three of these graphics cards are based on higher-end dual-fan ICX models with black and silver designs while the fourth model has a blower-type fan based on reference PCB.
