This story is a rumor. It is based on two reports from other websites, so bear in mind that it may not all be true.

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti: same frequency for all custom cards?

On October 26th NVIDIA is launching its new GTX 1070 Ti graphics card. This model is a direct response to Radeon RX Vega 56, which is clearly a better performer.

According to reports from Eteknix and Expreview, there won’t be a reference model of GTX 1070 Ti. Instead, only custom variants will be available. However, every single one of these will be locked to the same frequency.

The GTX 1070 Ti is said to be running at 1607/1683 MHz clocks (base and boost respectively). The important and rather controversial part of this rumor suggests that this frequency cannot be changed by board partners.

Eteknix:

An industry insider told eTeknix that the GTX 1070 Ti can’t be overclocked. In addition, we’ve been informed that NVIDIA will not release any reference cards and all AIB partner cards will be locked to the same speeds. However, price and aesthetics are expected to differ across partner cards.

Expreview (machine translation):

NVIDIA will be fully unified market GTX 1070 Ti frequency, that is, regardless of which you buy a GTX 1070 Ti their frequency will be fixed at 1607MHz-1683MHz , if you want to be stronger performance only Can be manual overclocking, for non-hardware enthusiasts are not friendly, or graphics card manufacturers have to surprise, such as get a software overclocking to avoid restrictions on NVIDIA.

So as you can see one report clearly says that no overclocking will be possible, while the other suggests that there might be a solution for these restrictions.

Both reports are still quite fresh, so we expect to hear more whispers in the coming days. Of course, we will keep you updated.
