In case you missed it, the new Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 Ti is based on the same GP104 GPU as the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080, but with a single disabled cluster, leaving it with 2432 CUDA cores, 64 ROPs and 152 TMUs. The reference clocks are set at 1607MHz base and 1683MHz GPU Boost clocks and it comes with 8GB of GDDR5 memory, clocked at 8GHz, on a 256-bit memory interface. The TDP is set at 180W, just like on the GTX 1080 and reference versions will make do with a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.
While it is obvious that Nvidia has pressured its AIB partners to limit the factory-overclock, most partners, including EVGA, have found a workaround, marketing all versions as working at 1607+ MHz base and 1683+ MHz GPU Boost clocks, with factory-overclock achievable due to the higher maximum power target, set at 217W and 235W, depending on the version.
EVGA’s lineup starts with a standard GTX 1070 Ti which uses a blower-style cooler and has a standard 5+1 VRM and a power target of 217W. The same goes for the EVGA GTX 1070 Ti SC Black Edition and the GTX 1070 Ti SC Hybrid, both coming with 5+1 VRM and 217W maximum power target.
The GTX 1070 Ti SC Black Edition features EVGA’s well known ACX 3.0 cooler while the GTX 1070 Ti SC Hybrid, as the name suggests, comes with a hybrid cooler, combining a 120 AiO liquid cooling solution for the GPU with a single blower style cooler for the VRM, memory and the rest of the components on the PCB.
The flagship offer in EVGA’s lineup is the GTX 1070 Ti FTW2, which not only features the iCX technology dual-fan cooler with a total of 9 temperature sensors, GPU / Memory / PWM Thermal Status Indicator LEDs, L-shaped contact fins and vented heatsink fin design, safety fuse and adjustable RGB LED lighting, but also features a beefier 10+2-phase VRM, dual BIOS, and a 235W maximum power target, allowing for a much higher factory-overclock.
Bear in mind that these are not actually factory-overclocks and these will not be overclocked out-of-the-box but rather can reach a certain level with manual overclocking.
All four Geforce GTX 1070 Ti versions from EVGA are currently listed for pre-order, with a price set at US $489.99 for the standard version, US $469.99 for the SC Black Edition, US $529.99 for the SC Hybrid version, and US $499.99 for the flagship GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 one.
According to EVGA’s own webshop, first pre-orders are expected to begin shipping on November 2nd.
