It's been quite the year for GPUs, first with AMD returning to the scene in a big way with its Vega line (which we'll have a review going up for soon), and now too with Nvidia closing out the year with the long-awaited GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. Offering up near-1080 performance at around about the same price as the 1070 was less than a week ago, it's certainly a powerful card.
And so we took the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti for spin, and thanks to its impressive cooling and overclocking abilities walked away impressed. Well, not so much walk away as kept sitting at our desk and watching the RGB lights sync up with our motherboard's.
With 2432 CUDA cores, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti boasts 27% more graphics-processing horsepower than the base 1070 which only has 1920 CUDA cores. And we say only because in this game of comparing GPUs, anything less than the best is worth deriding. This boost puts it in striking distance of the GTX 1080’s 2560 CUDA cores. The 1683MHz Boost clock remains the same as the base 1070. As does the speed of the 8GB of GDDR5 memory. Which is a shame because many were hoping thath the 1070 Ti would include the 1080’s GDDR5X speeds of 11Gbps over the now standard 8Gbps.

But, on the bright side ASUS got the 1683MHz Boost clock to an impressive 1759MHz here. And thanks to the impressive cooling of the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti you can push that a lot further.
