Eteknix says it heard from an "industry insider" that the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will not support overclocking in any way, shape, or form.
I can see Nvidia thinking about doing it, but I don't see them actually doing it.

Maybe because once oc'ed it will be faster than a GTX 1080 and nobody will buy them anymore. From a marketing point of view it's possible.

If you can overclock a 1070 ti, what stops you from overclocking a 1080? Jesus or his dad?
To me it just looks like an answer to the vega 56.

Right, this is not going to happen, remember the amount of backlash they got on disabling laptop GPU overclocking? The amount of backlash over this would be insane.

Theres not much control but I still overclocked mine over 200MHz higher than what it'll boost to on its own.

Would not surprise me in the least.

I hate buying nvidia but theres nothing else in the laptop market.

Not really an "answer" imo. The 1070 is over a year old and close enough, they could have just called it a day until the next gen. More like "Look AMD, we don't even have to design something new and just release a beefed up 1070 to beat your new card."

wait how is 1080 being matched by a Vega 56 then

Pretty sure this was clarified to mean there won't be any pre-overclocked AIB cards, but software overclocked will still work as usual.

I'm still waiting for AIB Vega cards.

What about you ?

That's probably the entire reason.

Oh well... overclocking has gotten kinda... vanilla anyway. I remember when it was still seen as kinda taboo what with the FSB and BLK frequency tweaking and all that... Used to be more of an art to overclocking both GPU and CPU alike.

I remember having an x800GTO that you could unlock extra shader cores or something by connecting tracers by drawing a line on the pcb with a pencil

I'm not sure but they could just have enough cores not passing 1080 requirement to call them 1070 ti. Use as many cores as they can instead of throwing them away.
That way they have a vega answer, get some extra money, and be more efficient while getting ready for Volta in 6-8 months from now.

This is exactly it. A 1080 requires all 20 SMs physically present on the GP104 chip to be functioning properly, so if even 1 SM fails then it currently has to be relegated to the 15 SM 1070 and have 4 "good" SMs wastefully lasered off. It's much better to let those "near misses" be used to their full capacity, not to mention that it will provide a minor refresh to the Pascal line while the Volta consumer cards get prepared for market (presumably for Q2 2018).

I am but stock levels were this bad for 1080

but Vega is highly dependent on HBM2 which is the only company pushing HBM2 for a mainstream product at so low price meanwhile 1080 probably had less issues using GDDR5X

I get like 50mhz at most over boost on my 1070. i doubt they would disable overclocking lol
