The GTX 1070 Ti is very close to the original GTX 1080, spec-wise, and this makes it more appealing for crypto-miers. It's supposed to be released in late October for around US$430.

There were some rumors concerning a possible GTX 1070 Ti release last week, but it looks like the card is as good as confirmed now. Another Chinese source is confidently citing the alleged specs, an approximate release date and the price.  Apparently, the first rumors got the CUDA core count wrong.

According to the latest Chinese source, the GP104 chip that comes with the GTX1070 Ti has only 128 CUDA cores and 12 Texture Mapping Units less than the original GTX 1080. The new Ti card should be a direct competitor for AMD's RX Vega 56. The alleged specs now include:
•    2432 CUDA cores
•    152 TMUs
•    64 ROPs
•    7.8 TFLOPS compute power
•    1607 MHz core clock
•    1683 MHz boost clock
•    8 GB 256-bit GDDR5 VRAM
•    256 GB/s memory bandwidth

The new specs seem to indicate that this Ti version could be aimed at crypto-miners, with its less power hungry GDDR5 memory, stripped cores and almost the same clocks as the GTX 1080. The expected launch date for the GTX 1070 Ti is some time around Halloween and the Chinese source mentions an MSRP of ~$US430.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
