EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti with 15-watt factory cooling system hits $499 (part 2)
NVIDIA announced today that the EVGA GTX 1070 series graphics cards are hitting the market for the first time ever with a new price: $499.
That’s a significant jump from the current $329 MSRP, which is the base price for the card, but it’s still less than the $399 price tag on the GTX 980 Ti, which went on sale earlier this year.
The GTX 1070 and 1070 Ti are EVGA’s latest and most powerful GeForce GTX cards, and they’ll be arriving in select markets this summer.
They’re also the first new NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs to arrive in the United States in years.
The EVGA 1080 Ti comes in two variants, the base edition and the Premium edition.
The base edition is the standard model, while the Premium Edition will have a higher factory overclocking power (up to 8GHz) and a slightly higher factory cooling output.
Both the 1080 Ti and 1070 will be available in black and white, with both variants featuring the same 10.6-inch panel and GeForce GTX 980Ti-branded packaging.
EVGA has also added a black-and-white variant of the 1080Ti, which you can see in the gallery above.
The 1080 Ti is a dual-slot card, so you’ll need to pair the card with an SLI or CrossFireX motherboard if you want to run both cards side by side.
The 1070 Ti is the new flagship graphics card for EVGA, and the company says it’s the fastest GeForce GTX GPU ever made.
This new GPU is powered by the same 8-core GM204 GPU as the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but with a 20 percent increase in GPU Boost Clock speed.
The 1070 Ti also features 8GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1000MHz.EVGA has put the 1070 Ti through a few different iterations, but today’s new render card is the first to run a fully optimized version of the 1070 GPU.
It’s also the only EVGA card with dual-link DVI support, which allows two GPUs to communicate via DisplayPort or HDMI simultaneously.
The new render, which has been leaked via a user-generated screenshot, also includes a few new performance tweaks.
First up, we see EVGA tweaking the GPU clocks.
The clock speed is now boosted to 815MHz, up from 825MHz, while memory clocks are boosted from 900MHz to 1175MHz.
EVGAS 1080 Ti also now supports 4K gaming with the company’s new 4K Boost mode.
The card also has an additional 256GB of VRAM, which can be shared with an NVIDIA GeForce 1080 Ti SLI system.
This is a major change, but EVGA says it also made a few other improvements to the 1070 in the rendering engine.
The company also tweaked its new GPU profile, tweaking its clock speed, memory clock, and VRAM clocks.
This should improve performance on 1080 Ti cards and should result in higher GPU Boost clocks on the 1070.
This renders a lot like a reference card, except instead of a GTX 1080, the EVGGA 1080Ti features a GTX 1070, which uses the same GM204 core as the GTX 1080.
This means the 1070 has a similar power delivery to the GTX 1070.
EVGPX 1070 Ti and the GeForce GT1050.
In this case, we’re seeing some minor changes to the fan and thermal design.
The cooling system is also slightly different, as we see the cooling fan mounted on the top of the card instead of the bottom.
