The Founder’s Edition of the GTX 1070 Ti.
The GTX 1070 Ti is here. As a graphics card that falls somewhere in-between the GTX 1070 and 1080 in terms of both performance and price, it’s a little curious of a release from NVIDIA… Until you consider the competition.
Back in August, AMD finally released their long-awaited RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 graphics cards, meant to compete with NVIDIA’s high-end Pascal GPUs. The general conclusion was that it was too little too late, with poor availability at launch to further spoil the few positives with the cards. Vega 56 was the more interesting out of the two, offering better performance for a slightly higher price compared to the GTX 1070.
The GTX 1070 Ti is NVIDIA’s answer to RX Vega 56, but it also raises a number of questions related to the $400-$500 graphics card price range.
So, how does the 1070 Ti fair against the competition? Let’s investigate.
