Nvidia partners working around GTX 1070 Ti factory-overclock ban

Posted October 28, 2017

And it will need just one eight-pin PCI-E power connector from your PC's power supply. More importantly perhaps, AMD's recently launched RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 have brought additional competition to the high-end GPU market, and while the GTX 1080 normally beats the Vega 64, the Vega 56 actually placed slightly ahead of the GTX 1070 in quite a few games. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has the same base clock as the GeForce GTX 1080 (1,607MHz base / 1,733MHz boost) and same boost clock as the GeForce GTX 1070 (1,506MHz base / 1,683MHz boost). It has the same GP104 GPU design as the GeForce GTX 1080. The GTX 1070 Ti is being marketed as a mid-step option for those who want something more powerful than the GTX 1070, but can not afford the more costly GTX 1080.

Nvidia has been teasing it for months, but it took a really long time for the company to finally acknowledge that the GTX 1070 TI - a spruced up version of the GTX 1070 - is real.it's so real that production started months ago, and the card is set to ship and hit shelves as early as next week.

Third party GPU makers like ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac will soon be launching their versions of the 1070 Ti next month.

NVIDIA stated that they "designed the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti to be an overclocking monster with plenty of headroom for gamers to crank up the clock speeds". You can find one custom-cooed Inno3D model listed on some online retailers for Rs 42,000.
