GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 3DMark Benchmarks Show NVIDIA Outpacing Radeon RX Vega 56

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is pretty much a foregone conclusion at this point. Thanks to numerous specs and benchmarks leaks, along with a premature Facebook post from Gigabyte, we know that NVIDIA is cooking up the graphics card for a debut sometime around Halloween.

Today, we have some more benchmarks to add to our leak pile, and they come from the popular 3DMark benchmark suite. In this case, there are new benchmarks numbers from the Fire Strike Extreme and Time Spy tests. In Fire Strike Extreme, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti managed to put up a graphics score of 9449 points. This compares to around 9949 for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 that NVIDIA is targeting with this new card. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti comes close, but is not quite able to beat its target.

However, in Time Spy, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti puts on a good show with a graphics score of 6,777 points. This compares to 6627 and 6019 points respectively for the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the standard GeForce GTX 1070 (we've entered these new scores for the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti in our benchmark chart below).

If NVIDIA is looking to push enthusiasts away from picking up the Radeon RX Vega 56, it looks as though the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti could prove to be a powerful elixir. And if NVIDIA can provide an adequate supply of chips in to the channel, it could be a win-win for the company. After all, the Radeon RX Vega 56 is still selling well over its $399 retail price due to supply issues.

One other thing that we can take away from this latest round of benchmarks is that this particular GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has a boost clock 1886MHz compared to 1683MHz for the standard card. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is also expected to be based on the GP104-300 GPU, have 2432 CUDA cores, 152 TMUs (textured mapping units), 64 ROPs (raster output units), and 8GB of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory onboard.

Earlier this week, we saw leaked Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks that also show the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti putting up a good fight against the Radeon RX Vega 56.
