Nvidia is reportedly coming up with a Ti-version of GeForce GTX 1070 after all. The information revealed by Chinese-based tech website EXPReview.com includes the complete specification of this graphics card, along with pricing.

Last month, it was reported that NVIDIA would come out with the "Ti" version of GeForce GTX 1070 in October. Many tech analysts perceived this move as NVIDIA’s way of preventing AMD from completely taking the reigns as the leading graphics card manufacturer with the release of RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64.

Price and specifications

The latest buzz suggests that NVIDIA will introduce GeForce GTX 1070 Ti on Oct. 26th and is expected to be on sale by Nov. 2nd. But what caught the eyes of many tech analysts is the graphics card’s base clock of 1607MHz and TDP of 180W which is the same as Geforce Gtx 1080. What’s unusual with GTX 1070 Ti is its boost clock which is tagged at 1683MHz – the same value as the non-Ti version.

Aside from these two features, almost all other hardware specifications are the same – 16nm FinFET process, 314mm2 die size, 7.2B transistors, 8GB GDDR5 RAM, 8Gbps memory speed and 256GB/s memory bandwidth. The other specifications of the upcoming NVIDIA graphics card sit somewhere in between – 2432 Stream Processor (CUDA Cores), 244.3GT/s Texture Fillrate, and 8.1 FP32 TFLOPs.

The value of Single Precision (TFLOPs) is yet to be determined.

Closer to GTX 1080

The upcoming NVIDIA graphics card is reportedly based on an entirely new core variant. The SKU of the non-Ti GPU is GP104-200 while GTX 1080 is GP104-400. The GTX 1070 Ti sits right in between with a new SKU known as GP104-300.

According to tech website WCCFTech.com, the difference is just one SM being disabled compared to GTX 1080.

This means that the upcoming graphics card is closer to GTX 1080 in terms of specifications and performance when compared to its non-Ti version.

Manual overclocking only

The same report suggested that NVIDIA will lock the frequency of GTX 1070 Ti – base clock of 1607MHz up to its boost clock of 1683MHz. However, the GPU giant won't release software for overclocking.

This means that any attempt to overclock GTX 1070 Ti must be done manually. However, since NVIDIA partner AIBs will have their hands on this graphics card, there could be a chance that non-hardware enthusiasts will get overclocking software.

The GTX 1070 Ti is reportedly going on sale for only $429; $20 less than the price at launch of the non-Ti version. For a graphics card being compared to GTX 1080 which is tagged at $549, that’s a savings of $120.
