Folks, it looks like the previously reported rumour about Nvidia’s plans to release another high-end graphics card this year is being fuelled once again thanks to a recent update regarding the matter. According to Nordic Hardware, Nvidia will be unveiling the GTX 1070 Ti graphics card on 26 October, possibly during the company’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) event in Taiwan.
For those who are not aware: Nvidia’s GTX 1070 Ti graphics card is said to be released by Nvidia to rival Radeon’s lineup of Vega graphics cards. Speaking of which, this graphics card is expected to come with a price tag of around US$400. If this were to be true, then the GTX 1070 Ti may just be a rather enticing graphics card for consumers in terms of pricing – the Radeon RX Vega 64 came with a MSRP of US$499.
When it comes to specifications, Nvidia’s GTX 1070 Ti graphics card is expected to be endowed with 2,432 CUDA cores, 7.8 TFLOPS of compute performance, along with base and boost clock speeds of 1607MHz and 1683MHz respectively. That said, the memory capacity (8GB) and frequency speed (8Gbps) of this graphics card may remain somewhat similar compared to the GTX 1070.
Despite this, we do recommend our beloved readers to take the aforementioned specifications of the GTX 1070 Ti with a pinch of salt, for now. Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see just how well Nvidia’s next graphics card will perform when compared against Radeon’s current offerings. Do keep in mind that the Nvidia GTC Taiwan keynote will be taking place on 26 October at 10am local time.
