NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2070 TI Rumored To Feature 2560 CUDA Cores, 1770 MHz Boost Clocks, 8 GB GDDR6 at 14 Gbps
Some rumored specifications for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2070 Ti graphics card have appeared online. According to the specifications, we may be looking at a slight bump in core specs and frequencies but overall, we should expect a 10-15% jump in terms of performance over GeForce RTX 2070.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Ti Allegedly In The Works, Rumored To Feature 2560 Cores and 1770 MHz Clock Speeds
According to the rumor, NVIDIA is allegedly preparing a new graphics card for the GeForce 20 series known as the GeForce RTX 2070 Ti. Just from the name, we can confirm that this variant, rocking the TU104 GPU, will be faster than the RTX 2070 but slower than the RTX 2080. I cannot confirm if this card has anything to do with the 'SUPER' teaser but we will drop our speculation later.

First, let's take a look at the specifications. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Ti is said to feature 2560 CUDA Cores which is a slight bump over the 2304 CUDA Cores on the RTX 2070 and much close to the RTX 2080 with its 2944 CUDA Cores. The GeForce RTX 2070 Ti is also said to retain 14 Gbps, 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM and a boost clock of 1770 MHz. The GeForce RTX 2070 has a boost clock of 1620 MHz on the non-Founders Edition and a 1710 MHz boost clock on the Founders Edition. The boost clock and the higher cores should deliver a 10 to 15 percent increase in performance over the RTX 2070.
The performance difference would make this card a lot similar to the GTX 1070 Ti which had almost similar performance as the GTX 1080 but a $100 US lower price point ($449 vs $549). This rumor does sound like something NVIDIA might do but we don't know if this is what NVIDIA really plans to do as recent rumors regarding the 'SUPER' lineup paint a different story.
Starting off with the first thing, it is rumored that NVIDIA 'SUPER' series would definitely introduce new variants in the RTX 20 series lineup but they would also feature 16 Gbps GDDR6 chips. This is not the case with the specifications for the RTX 2070 Ti. The second detail that is circulating is that all current RTX 20 series would get a price drop of up to $100 US to make way for the new cards.
It looks like the RTX 2070 price drop may not be as significant as $100 because the RTX 2060 is priced at $349 US for the Founders Edition and you can't really drop it down another $100 US to make it compete against NVIDIA's own GeForce 16 series cards. I think the price structure is about to get a dramatic change by NVIDIA but let's wait for further confirmation about these rumors.
