Introduction: ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced GAMING 8GB
On November 2nd Nvidia released yet another SKU this time the GTX 1070 Ti and Asus sent us their ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti STRIX Advanced 8G GAMING 8GB (STRIX-GTX1070TI-A8G-GAMING) which is a 3 fan variant of the 1070 Ti. Now when Asus releases a Strix card you can believe they mean business and this beauty is filled with premium features. Starting with the Asus Strix Strix GTX 1070 Ti Advanced Gaming 8GB cores totaling 2432 a mere 128 shaders less than the mighty GTX 1080 performance will be similar to the GTX 1080 but perhaps a couple of FPS less, so by specifications the true differences between a GTX 1080 and a GTX 1070 Ti is the GTX 1070 gets GDDR5 and 2432 shaders while the GTX 1080 gets 2530 shaders and GDDR5X. Since most games and applications don’t saturate the current memory bandwidth performance differences should be minimal.
Asus packed the goodies into the ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced GAMING 8GB, MaxContact technology, Patented Wing-Blade Fan Design, ASUS FanConnect II, Auto-Extreme Technology with Super Alloy Power II with no human intervention in the manufacturing process. ASUS Aura Sync on the GTX 1070 Ti Gaming for RGB LED synchronization, two VR-friendly HDMI ports and of course GPU Tweak 2 for overclocking.
Power, style and Asus technology packed onto a 3 fan video card making for one impressive package of gaming whip butt in a more affordable price range than higher level models. The GTX 1070 Ti models start at $449 and range upwards from there. Currently, Asus plans on 3 1070 Ti SKU’s:
ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced GAMING 8GB $499
