Let’s Strike Back
The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti comes with improvements made to the GeForce GTX 1070 model. It fills the gap between affordable GTX 1070 and the premium GTX 1080 lineup. The ASUS Strix series has been popular for past few years, and there’s a good reason for that. ASUS has really improved on their gaming graphics cards, taking steps to make cooling better and efficient. ASUS has its own design with patented Wing-Blade fan design with IP5X dust-resistance to improve lifespan. ASUS has opted out for the standard blower-style configuration. Instead, they went ahead with the traditional style large tripleslot cooler on their card, which we’ve seen on other Strix models from the company before. It provides massive cooling potential and keeps the card at low temperatures. ASUS cards have good stability while overclocking and the obsession with RGB lighting is still here.
Now, let’s talk about CUDA core count. Basically, the higher the number the better the performance, and the introduction of the Pascal architecture based GPU from NVIDIA offered massive improvements over last gen 900-series GPU. With 2432 CUDA cores, the GTX 1070 Ti boasts 30 percent more graphics than the base GTX 1070 which has only 1920 CUDA cores. So, you can expect a similar performance like the GTX 1080 graphics card.

Now it’s time to reveal the performance of the new beast Graphics card. Although it’s a mid-range GTX 1000 series graphics card, it performs similar to GTX 1080. We put ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti into test by playing graphics intensive and popular games like Battlefield 1, The Division and GTA V. From the test result, we able to play Battlefield 1 at ultra setting with average 136fps, The Division at ultra setting with average 126fps and GTA V at high setting with average 153fps. After benchmark, we can say that it performed like a beast without any thermal throttling.
