ORIGINAL STORY (31 Oct // 1141AM):
About a week ago, we’ve written a report (leak) regarding Asus’ upcoming custom GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards. Today, the company has officially announce one of the graphics card we’ve mentioned inside the aforementioned report: the ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti. In addition to this announcement, the company had also provided us with details regarding the local availability of its newest graphics card.
Before we get to that though, it’s at least worth taking a look at the design and specifications of the ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti first. When it comes to aesthetics, the ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti looks pretty much identical to previously released Strix-branded graphics cards. It comers with an all black cooler shroud, which houses three open-air cooling fans. Worry not RGB fanatics, this graphics card does features LED-lit areas.
As most of our dear readers may have already known, custom GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards will not feature factory overclocked clock speeds out of the box, due “restrictions” imposed by Nvidia. That said, the Asus ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti does come with two clock speed presets which can be enabled using the Asus GPU Tweak tool. In the OC Mode clock speed preset, the ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti has a boost clock speed of 1721MHZ (Standard Edition) and 1759MHz (Advanced Edition) and 1683MHz in Gaming Mode.
According to Asus Malaysia, the ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti will be made available locally by 10 November 2017. Unfortunately, the company did not reveal pricing. That said, we do expect this graphics card to be priced way above RM2,000.
