With the release of AMD’s RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 this year AMD made a come back to Nvidia’s Pascal series but was it a little too late? Vega 56 is targeted towards the Nvidia GTX 1070 while the Vega 64 is targeted towards the GTX 1080 although benchmarks say otherwise. Vega 56 has been doing much better than the GTX 1070 and often beating it in certain games, while Vega 56 is packed with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) and a 2048-bit memory bus on paper it’s a monster though benchmarks say otherwise which is suspected to be because of driver optimizations.
A comparison of between RX Vega 56 and the GTX 1070.
Introducing the Nvidia GTX 1070Ti
A GPU to compete with the Vega 56 and beat the competition. The 1070Ti is something that happens when big graphic card companies do not have any massive competition for years and can utilize their talent to bring out something even more powerful for a less price.

If you are looking for the best bang for your buck the GTX 1070Ti is for you.
Many companies have announced that they will be making custom PCB’s for the GTX 1070Ti we can expect them from brands like Asus, MSI, EVGA, Zotac right after the release date.
