A Chinese leak presents the ASUS GTX 1070 Ti STRIX O8G powered by the Pascal GP104 chip that integrates 2304 CUDA cores and includes 8 GB of GDDR5. The GTX 1070 Ti variant would be released later this year for US$350.

While Nvidia is preparing to make the jump to the Volta GPUs next year, we could still see some new GTX 1000 series products this year. Nvidia has the Titanium (Ti) series which essentially further improves the performance from regular versions. The GTX 1080 Ti has been out for more than half a year now, and the GTX 1050 Ti was released a year ago, but it looks like there’s a chance for a GTX 1070 Ti version to be released before the end of the year.

The guys over at Videocardz were kind enough to translate the Chinese information leaked on the Baidu forums. It turns out that the rumored GTX 1070 Ti would feature the Pascal GP104 chip variant, which is similar to the original one found in the GTX 1080. The leaked image presents what appears to be an upcoming ASUS GTX 1070 Ti STRIX O8G with 8 GB 256-bit GDDR5 and 2304 CUDA cores. Performance-wise, this model should bridge the gap between the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080.

There’s the possibility of Nvidia lowering the overall price point for the entire GTX 1000 series by the end of the year, so the GTX 1070 Ti could end up in the US$350 range. That would be a smart move from Nvidia, since the Volta GPUs are slated to make an appearance in early 2018 and the flagship GTX 2080 is rumored to cost over US$600.

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.
