EVGA, the makers of the world’s most popular GPU, are making their way to CES 2017.
The first in the company’s “EVGA VR Ready” line, the company has revealed the first of two products based on the GeForce GTX 1080.
First up is the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti – which will reportedly be available on the first day of the show, with a price tag of $999.99.
The GPU itself will apparently be powered by a new Pascal architecture, but the graphics card itself is powered by the same GPU found in the EVG GeForce GTX 1060 Pro – the same one that has been on sale for the past couple of years.
This is one of the first GPUs to feature the new Pascal Architecture, which is currently being tested at several NVIDIA-run facilities.
The 1080 Ti is also the first GPU to feature a 12nm FinFET process, which means the company says the card should have better performance than previous-generation cards, with much better efficiency, and better power efficiency.
That should mean that the 1070 Ti should be able to run at a lower power draw and will also have a significantly higher overclocking potential.
The other GPU in the lineup is the GeForce 1070 Ti Founders Edition.
This GPU is supposed to be the first to launch with the Pascal architecture – but it will be available with a base clock of 1206MHz, which would make it a very competitive GPU.
This makes the 1070 Titan the first EVGA product to use a 12,000MHz GPU, but unlike the 1080 Ti, the 1070 GT will not have a factory overclock.
Instead, the Founders Edition will be able use the standard factory overclocking options available to all Founders Edition cards.
The GTX 1070 GT, however, does have a few other interesting changes over the 1080 Titan, including a few new features.
EVGA has decided to include two additional memory chips, dubbed the “Gigabyte GTX 1070 Gigabyte” and the “HBM2 GTX 1070 HBM2.”
These chips are based on Pascal architecture (Pascal-C), which means they’re going to support GDDR5X memory (currently only used in the GTX 980 Ti), and the GTX 1070 Titan will be limited to GDDR5.
EVG says the two new memory chips will add up to 20% more performance, but there’s no word on how much.
Finally, EVGA also announced that the Founders GTX 1070 will have an additional GPU cooler, which will presumably be a reference design.
This new cooler will be the third in the Evga lineup, and it will apparently use the company-designed CoolerMaster GX110 Cooler, which has also been on the market for the GTX 1080 Ti.
The GTX 1070’s reference cooler is the GX120, and while the Gx120 is the standard cooler for the EVM-X series, the EVP version of the cooler is currently on sale.
The cooler is going to be a little bit wider than the GXP110, and will be a bit taller than the GTX 1070’s.
EVA has not provided any details on pricing for the cooler, but it is likely to be $100 cheaper than the reference cooler.
The second GPU in EVGA’s lineup is going the route of the 1080 GTX Titan – which is rumored to be available in the first half of 2017.
This will be powered with a new GPU design called the “GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition,” which is still being tested in a number of NVIDIA facilities.
This version of this GPU will feature a base Clock of 1276MHz, and the GPU will also feature a new GDDR5 memory bus.
The GeForce GTX Titan will also be limited in the number of CUDA cores it can support, but will be capable of using up to 32GB of GDDR5 RAM.
This means that the GeForce 1080 Ti will have a higher overclocker potential than the 1080 GT, but also likely a lower base clock and a slightly lower overclock potential than this GTX 1080 Titan.
This is a very exciting time for GPU enthusiasts, and we can’t wait to see what the EVA GeForce GTX lineup has in store.
