Nvidia may be working on a successor to the GTX 1070 Ti. A RTX 2070 Ti with 7.5 Gigabyte VRAM has appeared in the UserBenchmark database.
Why an RTX 2070 Ti would make sense
With the Turing generation, Nvidia has eliminated some of the old burdens. This also includes the fact that there is no successor to the GTX 1070 Ti. The graphics card came onto the market before AMD’s RX Vega generation as a direct opponent of the RX Vega 56. With 8 gigabytes of GDDR5 memory and significantly more CUDA cores, it positioned itself right between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, a point AMD wanted to meet with a low-cost RX Vega 56. The GTX 1070 Ti was from now on a cheaper alternative to the GTX 1080 and overclocked partially as good as the next bigger graphics card.
With Turing, there was no successor for the GTX 1070 Ti in the form of an RTX 2070 Ti. Nvidia currently only released the four RTX models RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, RTX 2070 and RTX 2060. Among them is the GTX 16 series. But even an RTX 2070 Ti would still have room in this lineup. Since AMD introduced the Radeon VII to the market, the performance of it has been between the RTX 2070 and the RTX 2080, and the RX 3080 of the upcoming RX Navi generation might also be at the level of the RTX 2070. A 2070 Ti would again be a possibility for Nvidia to parade AMD into the competition. Exactly such a card might now have appeared in a benchmark.
Potential RTX 2070 Ti in UserBenchmark database
The colleagues of wccftechhave found an entry in the UserBenchmark database. The entry contains a generic Nvidia graphics card with some exciting details. First of all: the name of the graphics card is not mentioned, but based on the performance it could very well be an intermediate level between RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. The performance lies exactly between these two graphics cards. The potential RTX 2070 Ti is a good 6 percent faster than the RTX 2070, while the RTX 2080 is a further 6 percent faster. The displayed specifications are a bit more strange. The graphics card has 7.5 gigabytes of VRAM. The graphics processor clock is 1,590 MHz, the memory clock 3,150 MHz.
Whether the entry is a fake or the parameters were not read correctly is currently difficult to determine. Especially the 7.5 gigabyte of memory are very strange. Whether an RTX 2070 Ti is planned at all or could soon be launched on the market will only become clear in the future. On the one hand it could be planned as an opponent for the Radeon VII and the RX 3080 and on the other hand it could also absorb faulty TU104 chips which are not good for the RTX 2080.
