NVIDIA’s Turing Card Is Actually Made Specifically for Crypto-Mining

Well it turns out that "Turing" is named after British scientist Alan Turing, who is credited with leading a team of mathematicians that broke the Nazi "Enigma" cryptography. In any case NVIDIA's "Turing" is a crypto-mining and blockchain compute accelerator. It is designed to be compact, efficient, and ready to be deployed in large scale.

Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP! Edition Graphics Card Review

NVIDIA introduced their "Pascal" GPU architecture all the way back in May 2016. Since that time NVIDIA has been practically unchallenged by AMD in the mainstream and performance segments until AMD's Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards were released recently. Most people I talked to said that the Vega 56 card was the real winner of the two. Its performance sat right between the GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 and gave buyers looking in that price / performance area an actual choice between two cards. At the same time the GeForce GTX 1070 had been out for quite a while, so the new Vega 56 did look more appealing to many gamers. So with the holiday season approaching NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which will sit between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has 2432 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8.0 GHz (GDDR5-effective). Today we are checking out Zotac's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP Edition, which features their IceStorm cooling solution, full metal backplate, RGB lighting, and more. Since NVIDIA has not allowed for any factory overclocks this card ships at the default base clock of 1607 MHz and boosts up to 1683 MHz. Let's get this card on the test bench and see what it can do!

Possible NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti On Its Way

According to a news post over at TechPowerUp, NVIDIA is preparing a refresh of the GTX 1070, expected to be known as the GTX 1070 Ti. This would probably place this new card in between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 in performance, and possibly price. It could also be poised to replace the 1070 altogether, while also setting its sights on dominating AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56 by providing a better performacne to power efficiency ratio.

AMD RX Vega Die Size Confirmed at 484 mm2

The die size of AMD's upcoming RX Vega chips has been sort of informally confirmed by Raja Koduri (head of Radeon Technologies Group) on Twitter. His post came as a response to people asking him about PC Perspective's prognosis on Vega's die size to be 512 mm². Koduri's did not answer directly, but cryptically responded with, "the number is the closest perfect square actually."
