Hasn't it been extant in mobile form for a while now? So a natural enough thing for them to do, although suspect they'd maybe have already done it if they were going to.

Mobile version has 2048 cores, 80% of GeForce GTX 1080. For the Ti version to have 2304 means it's 90% of full version. How will the 2304 and 2560 be significantly differentiated in performance? In price?

According to a different source (Baidu), it's going to be 256-bit GDDR5 9Gbps, so the GTX 1080 will still lead overall.

Odd product placement - competing with Vega?
We will have to see if this product replaces the GTX 1070 at $399 or slots in between the two existing models ($449?). Either way, it's amazing how GP104 (almost 1.5 year old) is still so competitive at 314 mm² while using a traditional 256-bit GDDR5 memory setup. Also, I bet NVIDIA wants to ride the wave of Coffee Lake builders, i5-8600K/i7-8700K + GTX 1070 Ti could prove a popular combo.

256-bit GDDR5 9 GT/s: 288 GB/s

Sounds like a memory subsystem for Ethereum mining.

On a side note: A cursory glance of GeForce GTX 1070s at PCPartPicker United States shows a drop in price of several models in the last week.

Wasn't there rumors that nVidia was going to hike prices due to the memory price spike? They could sell this for $449 and either sell the 1080 11 Ghz for $549 or make a new SKU based upon GP102 for $599.

Isn't GDDR5X bad for mining? Wonder if this card is intended to target miners. With a higher MSRP, NV gets more of the pot.

With Volta perhaps still 6 months away, does feel like a weird time to drop, but NV does when NV does (make money).
