MSI Jumps Into The GTX 1070 Ti Fray With 5 New Graphics Cards

Nvidia locked down all vendors to using the same base/boost speeds for the 1070Ti. It will be up to each AIB board partner to differentiate their models based on cooling design and internals like power phases for overclocking success through GPU management apps like Afterburner and Precision X.

I do not agree with that decision, but it is what it is. Let the chips fall where they may in where the 1070Ti stacks up against the 1080 in price/performance, specifically with comparing a factory overclocked 1080 that can be overclocked to a 1070Ti overclocked from its stock speed.

Yeah, I get that, just saying, no point coming out with 5 different ones... Would do one with blower style, one with 2x fans and one with 3 fans I guess, thats 3 ... but 5...:/

They only need maybe 1-2 models. One shorter card with a lower profile, and a larger card with more or larger fans and better voltage regulation components. As long as the cooling is adequate to sustain the boost clock under full load, that's all you need. Perhaps one with quieter fans or something, but that's it. It was earlier stated that you can't overclock the 1070ti right??

Why do they need 5 different versions of the same card?

I could unsterstand 2...one with a better cooler. Even 3 i guess with different coolers. But 3 of those look like they have the same cooler just a different color?

Just seems like stupid overkill to have 5 versions where 2 at most would be warranted.
