Zotac GTX 1070 Ti Unleashed

Now if you’re in the loop then you’ll be well aware that the GTX 1070 Ti is coming and very soon in fact. In some places you pre-order the card and others you’ll be able to grab one on the 2nd November. Pretty exciting times for us system builders out there.

Today however we’ll be having a little preview of three of these cards from Zotac. These are the Ti AMP Extreme, AMP Edition and the Mini.

AMP Extreme


The AMP Extreme will be Zotacs flagship 1070 Ti and will cost £499.99 or thereabouts depending on the retailer. It will feature 8GB GDDR5, which is the same as the 1070. However the Ti will have around 22% more CUDA cores. The regular 1070 has 1920 whereas the Ti will see that increase to 2432. Power consumption will be down 18% from 250W to 180W, this means you shouldn’t have to make any power supply changes.

Engine clock speed will be down though. Its drops from 1632 MHz to 1607 MHz on the base clock and also sees a drop on the boost of 202 MHz. The boost is 1835 MHz for the 1070 and 1683 MHz for the Ti. It looks like the extended boost frequency is gone, this isn’t just Zotac as it looks like its common for all the 1070 Tis.

Design wise not a deal has changed from the 1070 and it features pretty much an identical front facia and fan setup. You also get the Spectra lighting accents as you do on the 1070. Its just as big too coming in at 325mm, so make sure that your case can accommodate it.


The backplate is pretty much the same too and you’ll either love it or hate it. I personally like the design, but some of its features make it a little harder to match with other components in your system.


Rear IO is the same as well. It features 3 display port 1.4, a single HDMI 2.0b and a DVI-D.


Other features like Icestorm, powerboost, SPECTRA, EKO fan and EXOARMOR will return as well. If you are unfamiliar with these, then check out Zotacs site and it’ll explain exactly how all these benefit you.

AMP Edition


The AMP edition will be the second tier card at launch at £469 which is £30 cheaper than the Extreme variant. This again will feature the same specs as the Extreme. What you will lose is the accent lighting on the faceplate and the extra fan. But if that isn’t a deal breaker then this could be a good option to save you a little cash.

It does however lose out against the 1070 in clock speeds coming down from 1797 MHz boost to 1683 MHz. The base clock stays the same however at 1607 MHz.


The backplate maybe a feature that helps swing your vote as well. Its more colour neutral and should be easier to pair with the rest of your build.


Again this will have all the same features as the 1070 AMP edition including the rear ports.




Last but by no means least is the Mini variant. This will be the cheapest of the three and cost £419. Again it has the same specs as the other cards making this the best value for money. Well in terms of price to performance.


This would be perfect for an ultra compact ITX system due to its compact nature. Its actually, currently the worlds smallest 1070Ti. It has lighting accents and has been cleaned up a lot since the 1070. It also has a backplate, which is something the 1070 mini did not have.


IO is the same too, so it will be equally as capable at running multiple monitors.
