Performance Summary Charts

Performance summary charts

Here are the summary charts of 35 games and 4 synthetic tests. The highest settings are always chosen, and DX12 is picked above DX11 where available, and the settings are ultra or maxed.  Specific settings are listed on the performance charts.  The benches were run at 1920×1080, 2560×1440, and at 3840×2160.

All results, except for VRMark, FireStrike and Time Spy, show average framerates and higher is always better. Minimum frame rates are shown next to the averages in italics and in a slightly smaller font.  In-game settings are fully maxed-out and they are identically high or ultra across all platforms.

The GTX 1070 Ti sits right between the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080 in performance, but is generally closer to the GTX 1080.  Although the GTX 1070 Ti at $449 is intended to compete with the reference and future aftermarket RX Vega 56 in the same price range, it does very well even against AMD’s $699 top card, the premium-clocked RX Vega 64 which is much faster than the Vega 56.  The stock GTX 1070 Ti FE wins 23 individual game benchmarks out of 105 against the premium RX Vega 64 LC, while the stock GTX 1080 FE takes the majority with 54 wins.

Performance scaling with 10 Games

We tested ten demanding games where the stock GTX 1070 Ti originally performed well-behind the GTX 1080 and the RX Vega 64 LC.  We tested at our maximum preliminary overclock of 200MHz offset to the core and 400MHz offset to the memory at stock voltage as detailed earlier in the overclocking section.  In the first yellow column we show the performance improvement of the overclocked GTX 1070 Ti over its stock performance, and then we compare overclocked results with the stock results of the GTX 1070 FE and with stock GTX 1080 and the RX Vega 64 Liquid-cooled edition.


We can conclude that the GTX 1070 Ti scaling is very good from our preliminary overclock, averaging between an approximately 10% to 13% increase in overclocked framerates over stock.  In almost each case, the overclocked $450 GTX 1070 Ti catches or beats a stock $500 GTX 1080 which also means that while overclocked it may also be faster than the stock premium $700 RX Vega 64 Liquid-cooled edition!

Let’s head for our conclusion.
