GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs AMD Vega – Pricing and specifications

Nvidia recently launched its GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which offers high-end performance. The new card sits between the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080 in terms of specifications and performance, and will compete against AMD’s RX Vega graphics cards. The GTX 1070 Ti is based on the same Pascal architecture as the 1070, although it lacks the GDDR5X memory used by the GTX 1080.

AMD’s RX Vega cards – the Vega 56 and Vega 64 – are built on a new architecture and make use of High-Bandwidth Memory Gen.

2 VRAM, which offers a larger interface and better bandwidth than GDDR5 memory.

Comparison

To see how the cards compare, we looked at the local pricing and performance of the components. The air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64 is included in the comparison, as it is closer to the performance levels of the GTX 1070 Ti and is considerably cheaper than the liquid-cooled version. The specifications and pricing of the cards are below.
