Asus teases the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti on Twitter

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has been rumoured for quite some time and its launch is imminent. However, it looks like some of NVIDIA's hardware partners are unable to curb their excitement. This weekend Asus ROG's twitter handle tweeted a couple of images giving clues of what is about to come. In the first picture there is a math equation with (1080 - 1070) x 107 = ? and the second picture has bunch of bow ties. It is quite easy to decipher that Asus is talking about the GTX 1070 Ti. If rumours are to be believed, then NVIDIA might make the 1070 Ti official on October 26th with a US MSRP of $429 (Rs. 27912 approx. directly converted).

If Asus’ teaser wasn't enough, Gigabyte almost made its GTX 1070 Ti page live on its website. Sadly there were no pictures of the full GPU. On the other hand images of the GTX 1070 Ti’s by Galax and KFA did end up on the web. As far as specifications are concerned, Techarp reported that the upcoming GPU may have 2432 GPU (CUDA) cores with a base clock of 1607MHz and a boost clock of 1683MHz. The GPU is expected to use the same 8GB GDDR5 VRAM found on the GTX 1070 and is likely to have the same 256GB/s memory bandwidth. These specifications put the upcoming GPU just below the GTX 1080 and make it much more powerful than the GTX 1070.

Some rumours suggest that the new GPU might not be overclockable, but we take this with a pinch of salt as something like this seems unlikely. Moreover, it begs the question, why would NVIDIA lock overclocking on the GTX 1070 Ti in the first place as it is a premium segment card? We believe, the answers for all such queries will be answered as soon as NVIDIA announces the GTX 1070 Ti. We expect an India release to follow soon after the announcement.
