GTX 1070 Ti Can’t be Overclocked

/ 2 years ago

NVIDIA is expected to launch the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card later this month, pitched to rival AMD’s RX Vega 56. Many are excited about the new card, especially given its rumoured low price. However, an insider gave us some bad news about the 1070 Ti’s overclocking capacity.

NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti – Can’t be Overclocked

An industry insider told eTeknix that the GTX 1070 Ti can’t be overclocked. In addition, we’ve been informed that NVIDIA will not release any reference cards and all AIB partner cards will be locked to the same speeds. However, price and aesthetics are expected to differ across partner cards.

NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti – What We Know So Far

The 1070 Ti is rumoured to be undercutting the RX Vega 56’s price by up to $100. In fact, reports suggest the card will cost around $420. In addition, multiple sources point to a 26th October release. Since the Vega 56 – and Vega generally – proved to be a disappointment, the 1070 Ti became highly anticipated. The news that the card can’t be overclocked, though, will heavily dent expectations.

    Tash article for saying ryzen been a disappointment

  2. Jonnybox says:

    Ryzen generally a dissapointment, wut?

    • Brandon says:

      I think the author was a little behind on the pc market, ryzen was far from a disappointment, its because the ryzen line up that intel is releasing 6 core i7 and even released the i9 due to the success of ryzen 7. Overall ryzen far exceeded expectations. As for the vega, well yeah the price with performance was way off and the fact that demand was never met, so yes the vega was a failure.

  3. daconmat321 says:

    bit OT but you mentioned this in your article.

    Ryzen is FAR from a disappointment for everyone but blind Intel fanboys. Even for the Intel fans that aren’t dense Ryzen is a good product and they’ll admit it, they’ll just buy Intel because it’s what they prefer or it suits their needs better.

  4. Firov says:

    Ryzen wasn’t a disappointment. Vega, yes, but Ryzen, especially the R7 series, Threadripper, and the R5 1600/X are all very competitive processors.

    If you think those were disappointments, then you haven’t been paying attention.

  5. quicknick says:

    How exactly is Ryzen a disappointment?

  6. Nvidiot says:

    Um….. I really really hope the comment made about Ryzen generally proving to be a disappointment is a typo and you meant to say “Vega”.

  7. noob says:

    Obvious Intel fanbois derrr ryzen disappointing enough to force Intel to make 6 core i7’s lmfao

  8. Dan says:

    Probably would be faster than GTX 1080 if it could be overclocked. Nvidia just wants there 1080s to sell at higher price.

  9. Prad says:

    Ryzen was a disappointment? Are you high or something?

  10. Bob says:

    People should vote Nvidia back to the dark ages where they belong , buy not buying any of their products.

    • Christopher Scott says:

      Why? They are the better GPUs at this time in gaming performance. Nvidia definitely rules the enthusiast market. AMD are getting better but they aren’t where I want them to be with performance. I had high hopes with Vega but as usual AMD dissapointed at the end. The Fury X was the last AMD GPU I owned and that thing was a huge letdown.

    Since the Vega 56 – and Ryzen generally – proved to be a disappointment, the 1070 Ti became highly anticipated

    I’m pretty sure you meant Vega instead of Ryzen here – Ryzen has been very well received and definitely wasn’t a disappointment.

  12. Aid says:

    Ryzen was not a disappointment in the slightest.

  13. Dany Jadot says:

    I stopped reading at Ryzen proved to be a disappointment…

  14. Jordan Eilbert says:


    What universe do you live in where Ryzen and Threadripper are disappointments? XD

    Vega 64 didn’t beat the 1080ti but the Vega 56 is better than the 1070. The only disappointed folks are those who don’t own them because of Crypto currency mining.

  15. Derrick M says:

    “and Ryzen generally – proved to be a disappointment”

    You must be referring to a different Ryzen than the rest of the tech journalism world. The general consensus by everyone — Intel and AMD loyalists alike — is that Ryzen was a huge success and surprised everyone with it’s performance, SMT, core count, and multithreaded benchmarks.

    I’m not sure if you’re just trolling or are actually that clueless, but baseless statements like that really make you look foolish and undermines whatever credibility you may have.

    • Christopher Scott says:

      I’m an Intel user in my gaming PCs and I must admit, I’m impressed with the Ryzen CPUs. Some people always have to be brand loyal and fanboyish

  16. Ron Brown says:

    Calling ryzen generally a disappointment like vega is a bit of a stretch wouldn’t you say? It brought back competition and is selling very well in comparison. Don’t out little bias like that slip through, I feel like your really into coffee lake aren’t you?

  17. Elon Pratt says:

    Ryzen was a disappointment? Have you lost your mind, eTeknix?

  18. Christopher Scott says:

    Most people buy these Ti cards to push to their limit….Personally, I feel the 1070 Ti is a waste of money. You can OC the hell out of a regular 1070 but not the Ti model. This has to be one of the dumbest things I’ve seen from Nvidia since GameWorks. I don’t see this card selling very well. Might as well just spend extra and grab the 1080 instead. Plus we all know this 1070 Ti isn’t going to release at the MSRP. Great job Nvidia. Not.

  19. Leonardo Galindo says:

    Ryzen a disappointment? I think you mean Vega.. ryzen is far from a disappointment.

  20. Dave says:

    Asley Allen, go home you are drunk. Ryzen is an extremely good performer and nothing but an absolute hit with everybody. It is as far from being a disappointment as you can possibly get.

    Saying Vega56 is disappointing is also a stretch, Vega64 certainly is a flop, but Vega56 is rather good its only the pricing that needs fixing.
