Test results

Despite the fact that, compared to the older GTX 1080, a certain number of graphics units are missing here, it can catch up with the old card, and even surpass it in some ways. In the event that you apply the «overclocking» profile recommended by the manufacturer, you can squeeze another six percent more performance out of the card. However, whether you should buy the 1070 Ti or the 1080 is ultimately a matter of cost. At the time of publication, its cost is about 320$ on the computeruniverse.com online market.

Advantages

good performance for 1440p

Flaws

almost no different from the GTX 1080

At first glance, it looks like a creation on the principle of “nothing to do”: they took a couple of unnecessary GP104 GPUs, deactivated a couple of shaders, lowered Boost frequencies and soldered GDDR5 graphics memory — that’s the GTX 1070 Ti, that is, practically the GTX 1080 Light.

We are still asking ourselves the question of what the target audience of this map should be. Between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 there is almost no «space» that should be covered by other models. Maybe the whole thing is just a PR campaign, so that there is a reason to once again mention the manufacturer?

After all, Nvidia didn’t announce a single new card over the past summer. Our test results, unfortunately, will not help you much in deciding whether to buy a 1070 Ti or a 1080: both non-overclocked and overclocked 1070 Ti are in the immediate vicinity of 1080 both with the “OC” designation and without it . Despite this, of course, we will not hide the test results from you.

Factory overclocked item

Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP Extreme video card test: identity crisisIn the case of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, NVIDIA made a strange decision: customization partners can install their own cooling systems, but they are not allowed to touch the GPU clock speed.

This means the following: although over the heatsink Zotac GTX 1070 Ti AMP! The Extreme is powered by three fans, the base clock speed is the usual 1607 MHz, which increases to 1683 MHz in Boost mode.

Who wants more, must make some effort. However, you can still count on some support from manufacturers. For example, Zotac offers a pre-built profile for its Firestorm overclocking software. Once this profile is applied to the GTX 1070 Ti AMP! Extreme, the clock frequency will increase by 150 MHz. A difference that should not be overlooked.Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP Extreme video card test: identity crisis

Benchmarks (07.11.2017)

But even without overclocking, this graphics card does not perform so badly at all. In the 3DMark Fire Strike synthetic benchmark set, this model performed slightly worse than the overclocked GTX 1080. Also, in most gaming benchmarks, of course, this card loses several frames per second (fps) compared to the performance of its older sister.

Only at 1080p can it deliver a few more fps in games like GTA V and Ashes of the Singularity. But all questions are removed as soon as we turn on the OC-mode. The 1070 Ti achieves a score of 5106 in Fire Strike (Ultra). For comparison, the Asus GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX OC Edition scores 5341 points. At the same time, it turns out to be more efficient than the non-overclocked GTX 1080 with 5029 points we measured.

Depending on the 1070-Ti version purchased, overclocked or not, you get a card between 1070 and 1080 or between 1080 and 1080 OC.

Benchmarks (02.11.2017)

The initial test on November 2, 2017 was conducted on a different system from the one we use to test graphics cards to ensure comparability of results for ranking. System configuration: Ryzen 7 1700, 16 GByte DDR4-2400, MSI B350 Tomahawk.

With the current version of the 1070 Ti driver in synthetic benchmarks, 3DMark shows results only 4-7 percent worse than the noticeably faster and more shader-enabled GTX 1080. In our two gaming benchmarks, the picture also literally turns upside down: in «Total War: Warhammer» there is practically no difference, in «Rise of the Tomb Raider» the younger sister performs even better.

We are not yet able to determine exactly where these somewhat abstract results come from. The GTX 1070 Ti has more texture units than the GTX 1080 (202 instead of 160). Also, the clock speed of GDDR5 memory itself is higher than that of the GDDR5X memory of the GTX 1080. At least those are the biggest differences, aside from clock speeds and the number of shaders.

Alternatives

Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP Extreme video card test: identity crisisVega 64 from AMD: GigaByte Radeon RX Vega 56 8G (GV-RXVEGA56-8GD-B)

It was almost impossible to get AMD Vega cards by the time of release.

At present, the situation has improved slightly. You can get a good RX Vega 64, a direct competitor of the GTX 1080, for a decent price of about 400$.

Significantly cheaper with GTX 1060: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Pulse 8GB (11265-05-20G)

Those who don’t want to spend that much money can get a still excellent mid-range graphics card with the GTX 1060 for about 260$.
