The folks over at Overclock3D posted up some early coverage on the ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1070 Ti Advanced graphics card the other day and it looks like they also included some performance results. NVIDIA has done a really good job keeping everything quiet on the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, so to have benchmark numbers leak just a week ahead of launch is impressive. In the slides posted by Overclock3D it shows the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition reference card getting 8,985 points on 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme at 1607 MHz base and 1683 MHz boost. ASUS then shows their ROG-STRIX-GTX1070TI-A8G-GAMING card running in OC mode (1683MHz base and 1759MHz boost) scoring 9,153 points. The bar chart that ASUS used made the difference look huge since the Y-axis didn’t start at zero, but it’s a 1.9% performance improvement from a 4.5% higher boost clock.
ASUS also had another slide that compared to the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition to their custom card in Doom and Gears of War 4 and did the same Y-axis trickery. Their STRIX card performed between 2.1% to 3.75% better than the Founders Edition.
Not bad looking numbers, but you also need to keep in mind that the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Advanced runs $499.99 shipped while the Founders Edition card is available to pre-order for $449.00 shipped. That means you are paying an extra 11.4% ($50.99) for the ASUS model and for that price premium you are getting less than a 4% performance boost according to the slides they gave Overclockers3D.
We’ll have to wait for the reviews to come out on Thursday, November 2nd to be more impressed as the STRIX card will likely manually overclock further, run cooler and have a quieter GPU cooler. Oh, and you know the STRIX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will have RGB lighting support with Aura Sync!
