Nvidia’s rumoured GTX 1070 Ti is expected to release in late October

 
In recent weeks the rumour mill has been filled with speculation regarding Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 1070 Ti, ab as of yet unconfirmed GPU that will sit somewhere between Nvidia’s GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 GPUs.  

 
This new model is expected to cost somewhere in the region of $400, filling in the price gap between the GTX 1070 and 1080, a price point that AMD’s RX Vega series GPUs occupy (if you can get them at AMD “SEP” prices).   

Nordic Hardware has reported that this GPU is expected to release on October 26th, reporting that Nvidia’s board partners are already testing and refining their own custom GPU models.  

Below are the rumoured specifications of Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 1070Ti, revealing specifications that are closer to the GTX 1080 than the GTX 1070, though the GPU’s memory is expected to be GDDR5, which could be a limiting factor in some situations. 

Specifications below that are in red are from other recent sources that listed the specifications of the GTX 1070 Ti, showcasing the same memory speeds as the GTX 1070.

 It has also been suggested that Nvidia’s GTX 1070 Ti is also designed to cater to the GPU mining market, offering similar core performance to the GTX 1080 while offering more affordable pricing and GDDR5 memory.

Certain cryptocurrencies are known to favour GDDR5 over GDDR5X, making the GTX 1070 Ti look very attractive to miners.
