Nvidia is releasing an upgraded version of its GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card.
The GTX 1070 Ti is a newer model of the existing card. For a price of $450, the 1070 Ti will be released on Nov. 2. Because it’s an upgraded model, it’s a bit more expensive than the $400 1070 graphics card, but less expensive than the 1080, which is $550.
Nvidia claims the 1070 Ti offers more than three times the performance of previous-generation graphics cards. The 1070 Ti offers 2,432 CUDA cores to the 1070’s 1,920—in a basic sense, these process data. Likewise, the base clock speed sits at 1607MHz as opposed to 1070’s 1506Mhz base speed.
Both offer 8GB GDDR5 for memory.
The Founder’s Edition GTX 1070 Ti graphics card is available for $450 on the Nvidia store, but versions will also be available through retailers like Amazon, Newegg, and Best Buy, too. Shipping begins Nov. 2. There’s a limit of two per customer, but do you really need more than that?
