The GeForce GTX 1170 is high-end graphics card from NVIDIA based on Turing architecture and 12nm process technology set for release in 2018. The information I’ll be mentioning is based on rumours and subject to change as soon as I have any confirmation. This page will be kept up to date with the latest information once available.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1170 – Specs, Price & Release Date
GTX 1170 Specifications
According to latest rumours GeForce GTX 1170 is powered by 104 class GPU – codename GT104 that measures around ~400mm². The GTX 1170 would have around 2688 CUDA cores with a 256-bit GDDR6 memory interface and 8 to 16 gigs of 12Gbps GDDR6 memory which is slightly lowered compared to GTX 1180. This graphics card is expected to have a core clock clocking at ~1.5GHz and boost clock of around ~1.8GHz. The TDP of GTX 1170 is unconfirmed, but it is supposed to be somewhere between 140-160W.
GTX 1170 Performance
The expected performance of GTX 1170 is 9.75 TFLOPS depending on how high the clock speed it will be able to hit. This puts it in the league of GTX 1080 Ti.
So you can expect around GTX 1080 Ti performance or slightly better with aftermarket models but at significantly lower power consumption.
GTX 1170 Release Date
Pricing information and release date are primary part user show interest in, this information I mentioned earlier is based on rumours so it could be changed. The expected release date of GTX 1170 is this summer. All leaks and rumours point to a debut around the same time as the GTX 1080 in July. So you can expect the launch of GTX 1170 in July or maybe a couple of weeks later in August.
GTX 1170 Price
