So there’s a rumor NVIDIA may be preparing a new GTX 1070…
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti
I will just say it once, I don’t know if this is true. No one seems to be able to confirm it (yet). The story is that NVIDIA is allegedly working on a new GTX 1070 Ti graphics card with few more cores. According to the rumor, the new card would have 2304 CUDA cores (which I find hard to believe because it would very close to 1080 and the gap is not really that big). So as much as I love making charts for specs comparison, I think it’s too early to make one here.
Why would NVIDIA make GTX 1070 Ti? Well, it’s quite obvious that Vega 56 is faster in this price segment (at least when official price is considered). NVIDIA could either lower the price of GTX 1080 or bring a new part.
Partially the reason why I’m posting this rumor is this photograph, clearly showing ASUS GTX 1070 Ti STRIX O8G. It may just be a typo, which may just be adding unnecessary fuss to the story, or it may be a real thing. Whatever it is, it has been a while since we had a rumor about a new high-end card from NVIDIA, so have a look:
