A few days ago we heard some rumours about a new GeForce card from NVIDIA. Turns out that NVIDIA might be working on a GTX 1070 Ti GPU! Now rumours are usually just that, rumours, but now some specifications for the alleged card have appeared and the 1070 Ti could very well be a more wallet-friendly GPU with the performance that close to the 1080s. Reports say that the 1070TI will feature the same GP104 chip found in the 1070 and the 1080.The 1070 TI is said t have 2432 CUDA cores, a core clock of 1607Mhz and a boost clock of 1683Mhz. MSRP is also rumoured to be $429, which is $70 cheaper than the base 1080. Now keep in mind that these ARE alleged specs and that we really don’t know if anything is true, but the question is, would you buy a 1070 Ti if it were real? Leave a comment.
