Compared to the 1070, the 1070 Ti offers improvements when it comes to specs, offering 2,432 CUDA cores compared to the 1,920 offered by the original 1070, putting it closer to the 2,560 CUDA cores found in the 1080.

Nvidia is also positioning the 1070 Ti as an upgrade specifically for the company's last-generation GTX 970 GPU, noting that the new card offers twice the performance of the popular older model.

This week the folks at NVIDIA have revealed their NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card with Pascal GPU technology inside. The 180W TDP GPU features a 1607 MHz base clock and 1683 MHz boost clock.

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti-based graphics cards will begin shipping November 2 - across 238 countries and territories - from the NVIDIA GeForce Partner Network, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac.

The eurozone's growth rate also caught up with the United Kingdom in 2016, and has outpaced the United Kingdom so far this year. The Bank's deputy governor said on Monday that a rate rise in November remained an "open question".

How much will the 1070 Ti cost?

"And our partners have built cards with thermals and power supplies that allow gamers to push performance way past stock specifications", NVIDIA said.

As you can see from the numbers, the 1070 Ti performs nearly double as compared to the previous generation GTX 970 and this is using DX12. More importantly perhaps, AMD's recently launched RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 have brought additional competition to the high-end GPU market, and while the GTX 1080 normally beats the Vega 64, the Vega 56 actually placed slightly ahead of the GTX 1070 in quite a few games.

The rumours were all true: the new card will have GDDR5 memory instead of GDDR5X - as with the GTX 1080 - and has a bandwidth of 8Gb/s, 3Gb/s slower than the 1080. In the meantime, you can pre-order the card now for $449 ahead of its November 2 retail release. As with previous cards, Nvidia is offering its own Founder's Edition through its online store.
