The GeForce GTX 1170 is a high-end graphics card from NVIDIA based on the Turing architecture and 12nm process technology set for release in 2018.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1170 – Specs, Price & Release Date (Preliminary)

I’d be remiss if I did not mention that this information is preliminary and subject to change as more information is revealed and/or existing information is confirmed or debunked. This page will be kept up to date with the latest information available at any given time.

According to the latest leaks, rumors and information provided to wccftech the GeForce GTX 1170 is powered by a 104 class GPU, codenamed GT104 that measures around ~400mm². The GTX 1170 would have around 2688 CUDA cores, a 256-bit GDDR6 memory interface and 8 to 16 gigabytes of 12Gbps GDDR6 memory, which is slightly slower memory than the GTX 1180. The graphics card is expected to have a core clock of around ~1.5GHz and a boost clock of around ~1.8GHz. The TDP of this graphics card is unconfirmed to date, but is expected to be somewhere between 140-160W.


Peak FP32 compute performance is expected to be around 9.75 TFLOPS, depending on how high of a clock speed the graphics card will be able to hit and how often. This puts it in the same league of NVIDIA’s existing GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

So you can expect around GTX 1080 Ti performance or slightly better with aftermarket models, but at significantly lower power consumption.

Price & Release Date

Pricing and the release date are the most fluid parts of a product launch, so this could definitely change. But, you can expect the GeForce GTX 1170 to be released in the summer. All leaks and rumors point to a debut around the same time as the GTX 1180 in July, so you can expect the GTX 1170 to be available on shelves at the same time as the 1180 or a couple of weeks later in August.

[updated] Latest leaks & rumors indicate a launch date at Gamescom in late August, between the 21st and the 25th.

In terms of pricing, whispers say that NVIDIA is looking to charge more for the GTX 1170 as compared to the GTX 1070, with some whispers pointing to a price tag of around $499.
