Nvidia's new $450 GTX 1070 Ti card comes out on November 2

That's okay because the real question is how it performs, so there is still some anticipation left and room to speculate.

The 1070 Ti will be available from NVIDIA as a Founders Edition card and from hardware partners for starting price of $449.

Nvidia has launched a new GPU called the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which fits in between the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 launched in 2016. So, what are we looking at here?

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti ships with 2432 CUDA Cores and 19 SM units.

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is packed with 2,432 cores and 8 GB of memory running at 8Gbps for a total bandwidth of 256 GB/s.

Quite a lot less than a GTX 1080. In this case, the clockspeeds bump up against each card.

It comes with a 1607 MHz base clock which is similar to the GTX 1080. The card has a TDP of 180W.

NVIDIA has announced yet another graphics card based on the Pascal architecture, the GTX 1070 Ti.

According to the manufacturer, the card is an excellent alternative to the GTX 1070 with almost identical performance when compared to the GTX 1080.

In other words, "Pshaw!" It is claimed to deliver up to 35% more performance over the GTX 1080, which was launched previous year.

The real dilemma is whether or not it's worth springing for the 1070 Ti, at least those models that cling to the stock specifications. With that said, keep an eye out for overclocked third-party boards that don't carry a significant premium - those may hit the sweet spot and give you a reason to jump to the 1070 Ti instead of sticking to the regular 1070 or AMD's offerings. We will have our own numbers to share once we get our hands on one and have a chance to run it through our gauntlet of benchmarks.

Pre-orders for the GTX 1070Ti are available at the moment, you can order now from Amazon, NewEgg, BestBuy etc.
