It looks like we’re pretty much set for the imminent launch of Nvidia’s GTX 1070 Ti graphics card. New information has come to light regarding this heavily rumoured graphics card, but this time, it’s listed on an overclocking tool: MSI Afterburner 4.4.0 Beta 19. Prior to this, rumours have surfaced regarding the possible launch date for the GTX 1070 Ti (read more about it here).
The MSI Afterburner 4.4.0 Beta 19 GPU tweaking tool comes with the following excerpt in its changelog: added core voltage control for reference design Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti series graphics cards. The addition of support for this graphics card on a well known overclocking tool is a pretty big indication that the GTX 1070 Ti really does exist.
Based on previous rumours, it’s said that the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti graphics card will likely be equipped with the Pascal GP104 GPU – similar to that found on the original GTX 1070 card. Of course, the GTX 1070 Ti will feature higher performance output and efficiency rate. That said, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see this graphics card being equipped with the “normal” GDDR5 memory controller instead of GDDR5X.
That aside, another new feature that comes with MSI Afterburner 4.4.0 Beta 19 is the addition of low-level access for AMD’s Vega graphics cards. This new feature allows for Afterburner users to have much deeper controls over their Vega graphics cards like voltage control. Regardless, if you’re in the market for a new high-end graphics card and you favour Nvidia cards more than AMD’s, then it’s best to start saving for the GTX 1070 Ti now.
