Recently we already wrote about the GeForce GTX 1180. Recall, if you believe the data, the card will receive 3584 CUDA cores and 16 GB of memory with a frequency of 12 GHz. Today there are also options Junior GTX 1170. Considering how these data relate to each other, we can assume that they are still correct.
So, GTX 1170 is based on the same GPU as the older model. But this time the source calls the GPU GT104, not GV104 that should indicate the word “Turing” to be used for naming of the new generation. The core of this will have an area of about 400 mm2, that is, it will be about a quarter larger than the current GP104. The parameters of this map are as follows:
- The number of CUDA cores — 2688
- Core clock — MHz 1500-1800
- Memory — 8-16 GB
- Memory frequency — 12 GHz
- Bus — 256 bit
- TDP — 140-160 W
Thus, we have that GTX 1170 will have 20% fewer CUDA cores than the GTX 1180. It’s about the same difference as between a GTX 1080 GTX 1070 and, that is, the difference in performance will be roughly equivalent.
What’s not pleasing is the price. If the source is right, the card will ask for $ 500. At the same time, let me remind you, GTX 1070 at the time, started with $ 370 for the most affordable monitored by PWM version, and the REFs asked for 450 bucks. If $ 500 for a GTX 1170 is the price of the Ref, the cards with the original design should be cheaper. But if this is the recommended value for all adapters that are somehow a little expensive and it’s easy to imagine how cheap will the GTX 1180.
And what performance? The source is data only about the performance of the adapter in the floating-point (FP32). It will be about a 9.75 TFLOPS.
Here is the chart just based on this value, but in games the relation to the other cards may be different. However, the result is encouraging.
