Introduction

It has been more than two years since NVIDIA introduced Pascal to the world. Since its launch, the Pascal architecture has been refined for various markets, including gaming. The GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1060 were updated with better memory configurations, the GTX 1080 Ti got a ton of custom models and the Titan Xp reigns supreme over them all.

It won’t be a mistake to say that the Pascal lineup feels complete from top to bottom, offering good competition in every segment (not only gaming). Even after AMD’s Radeon RX Vega launch, NVIDIA doesn’t feel much threatened as they have maintained their performance against AMD’s 2017 parts with their 2016 parts. The GTX 1070 is made to compete with the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the GTX 1080 is made to compete with the Radeon RX Vega 64. All of these cards trade blows and manage to slightly outperform each other depending on the game being tested and what GPU the game engine is optimized for.

While the updated GTX 1080 cards do well against the Radeon RX Vega 64, the Radeon RX Vega 56 with its more attractive price and performance has taken some attention away from NVIDIA’s GTX 1070. The card did receive a small price cut but didn’t get any update from NVIDIA directly so far. But more than a year after its launch, the GTX 1070 gets an update, not in the form of the changes we saw on the GTX 1080 or GTX 1060, but in the form of a completely new card.

Meet the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, the latest entrant in NVIDIA’s GeForce 10 series card and most probably the last before we get to see the first Volta based GeForce cards next year. Today, I’ll check out MSI’s GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Titanium graphics card which isn’t a whole lot different than MSI’s GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming which I tested earlier this month.

Meet GeForce 10 Series – One More Ti In The Pack, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti

With Pascal, NVIDIA launched a new generation of GeForce cards, the GeForce 10 series. The GeForce 10 series comprises the Pascal based GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070, GTX 1060, GTX 1050, GT 1030 and now, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. All cards feature the same Pascal DNA and aim at the entire top-to-bottom segment of the gaming market.

Aside from the GeForce cards, NVIDIA also has their semi-pro ‘Prosumer’ variants under the Titan branding. These include the GeForce GTX Titan X(p) (2016) and the GeForce GTX Titan Xp (2017). Both cards have optimized GeForce drivers built for them that delivers significant boost in pro work-loads where they are better suited.
