    Asking release dates for cards that haven't even been officially announced will never get you much closer to the truth.

    Nvidia might BAN OVERCLOCKING on new 1070Ti
    Rumors point to a frequency lock on Nvidia's next graphics card.
    http://www.pcgamer.com/you-might-not-be-able-to-overclock-nvidias-geforce-gtx-1070-ti/

    "We are fairly confident that Nvidia is readying a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card that slip into its product lineup between the non-Ti variant and the higher-end GeForce GTX 1080. However, if you are hoping to squeeze out GTX 1080-like performance through overclocking, you might be in for a rude awakening—the latest rumors suggest Nvidia is locking the frequency on the GTX 1070 Ti."

    Nvidia might BAN OVERCLOCKING on new 1070Ti - WAN Show October 13, 2017
    01:01:52 - Rumored 1070 Ti rumored to not be overclockable
    00:09:26 - OnePlus OxygenOS built-in analytics
    00:19:34 - Apple not intentionally slowing down iPhones
    00:27:00 - Sponsor: Squarespace
    00:28:41 - Sponsor: Mack Weldon
    00:31:20 - Sponsor: Savage Jerky
    00:34:34 - Airbnb building in Florida
    00:39:38 - iOS and Samsung market share tied in US
    00:41:24 - Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update
    00:47:42 - Floatplane
    00:51:24 - FLIR cameras have unremovable backdoors
    00:54:40 - Floatplane (cont)
    01:00:28 - AU Optronics roadmap
    01:01:52 - Rumored 1070 Ti rumored to not be overclockable
    01:04:11 - Razer teased first smartphone
    01:06:22 - Two new Oculus headsets coming
    01:09:44 - Coffee Lake in short supply


    It sounds like Nvidia is having 2nd thoughts about releasing a GPU cheaper than the GTX1080 that could conceivably OC to the same or higher performance than the GTX1080.

    The AMD Vega RX56 has nothing to fear from either the GTX1080 nor the GTX1070ti :)

    Nvidia is so greedy i wouldnt be surprised if by the next gpu model release they start to sell 2 models of every gpu. Just like intel cpus one model will be locked and the other will be unlocked for overclocking. And of course the unlocked one will be more expensive. When does it end??

    Saw this over on Guru3D, over there the census was that AIB cards wouldn't be able to offer overclocked versions, but that manual overclocking would be allowed. If that's the case then no problem, we'll just overclock them ourselves. However, if NVidia really do block overclocking by the end user on this specific card then I am dead against that, just as I was with NVidia's brief restriction of overclocking on mobile GPUs - I'd kick up a fuss about that, just as I did with the mobile variants! NVidia did a 180 deg turn & re-enabled overclocking on mobile GPU's after everyone kicked up a stink! Banning or limiting overclocking on any of their cards will NOT be popular at all - the internet is likely to explode! Was called the "Clock-Block", my memory re-ignited after a bit of googling just now!

    EDIT: Linus talking some rubbish in that video though, talking about overlap of 1070ti with 1080ti, I think he meant GTX 1080! No way is GTX 1070ti when overclocked a competitor to 1080ti, it's a GTX 1080 overlap more to the point.

    There's no way Nvidia would do that, it'd doom the GPU to DOA status before it releases.

    And, if Nvidia didn't lock down the "GTX1070ti" it would overclock past the GTX1080, killing sales for the GTX1080.

    Which is why I thought the GTX1070ti was a bad idea in the first place.

    Maybe they don't want to sell many more GTX 1080's, maybe their current silicon & GDDR memory type is better suited to GTX 1070ti production.
