Two ASUS GTX 1070 Ti GPU models have been pictured

Neither of these models are OC editions.



Read more on ASUS' GTX 1070 Ti designs.

Given the recent leaks I'm not surprised, all the 1070Ti seems to be is an overclocked 1070 with a few extra CUDAs enabled.

Well then the 1080 is also "just" an overclocked 1070
They are all the same chip = GP104
The 1060 is GP106
And 1080 ti/titan is GP102

They really are milking Pascal for all its worth. Although ethically wrong Nvidia are just doing what businesses do. This card is purely aimed at kicking AMD square in the nuts with their poor performing power hungry cards and I had such high hopes for Vega

How is it ethically wrong?

Bumping prices and charging what they do plus releasing pointless products to milk consumers for every penny. I would says that's morally wrong

The 1080 ti was cheaper than i expected. The 1080 dropped in price, when the ti launched. A friend of mine just purchased 2x 1080 ti at a sale = 10.000 DKK and our VAT is 25% = Just below 1200£
Asus Turbo versions, but still its a ti

Normally I would agree (I love getting stuck into nasty corporations, did you notice? ) but there is no problem with them holding onto Pascal for longer.

The issue is usually that hardware moves so fast that devs don't ever really get to truly get to grips with something before they can "cheat" and use faster hardware to disguise crappy coding. If Pascal holds on for longer it will mean they have no choice. IE - they can't just order a crapload of workstations with the highest end latest hardware in it and use that to sort their code with.

We had the Sinclair Spectrum for years, we had the Xbox (as an example of a console) for years. Looking back at games that came out at launch and the ones at the end? yeah, marked difference tbh.

So yeah, I don't think it will hurt anything. It also means that whatever card you buy will hold its value for longer. That was never a bad thing, IMO. 1080 has been out ages (I am spoilt by the fast pace of the PC component industry) and you could still get a good chunk of your original investment back should you sell one now.

That "pointless" product is poining at Vega56. I guess competition is only when AMD is trying to catch up. AMD bumps prices by doing all they can to be appealing to miners and not meet the demand. Nvidia bumps prices cause AMD sucks and they can do it.
At the same time AMD announced prices that are not real or possible.
