There have been lots of rumors surrounding NVIDIA's still-unannounced GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, most of which point to a launch happening later this month. Missing from all the chatter, however, has been any benchmarks. Well, that changes today. The first benchmarks (that we are aware of) of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti have leaked out from the Ashes of Singularity: Escalation database.
This is a benchmark we have run ourselves a few times, though on a different settings preset than what's been leaked out. In this case, the preset level was configured to "Extreme," and run at a 2560x1440 (1440p) resolution. On the CPU side, the test system was equipped with an Intel Core i7-7900X processor, a high-end desktop (HEDT) 10-core/20-thread Skylake-X part.
This is an impressive showing for the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, assuming the benchmark run is legitimate. It scored 6,200 while averaging 65.5 frames per second. That is higher than any of the database's GeForce GTX 1070 results, and even tops some GeForce GTX 1080 benchmark runs.
Here is a look at our own collection of benchmarks is Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, which also includes results from AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56 and 64 graphics cards.
We use the same 1440p resolution in our benchmark runs, but a higher "Crazy" image quality preset. That means you can't compare the numbers directly, though it does add a bit of context to the score.
Based on previous leaks and rumors, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will wield a GP140-300 GPU with 7.2 billion transistors crammed onto a die that measures 314mm2. It is said to have 2,423 stream processors on 19 of 20 enabled SM units, 152 TMUs (textured mapping units), 64 ROPs (raster output units), and 8GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8Gbps, giving it 256GB/s of memory bandwidth. For the sake of comparison, the GeForce GTX 1080 has 2,560 stream processors, 160 TMUs, and the same number of ROPs, while the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1,920 stream processors, 120 TMUs, and also the same ROP count.
There have also been rumors that NVIDIA may lock the frequencies on the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and disallow its hardware partners (and maybe consumers too) from overclocking. We will find out soon enough, as the card is said to launch on or around October 24.
