SLI Question regarding the 1070 and 1070TI

Hello, I was wondering why the 1070TI was created I feel like it will cut into the 1080 market and the 1070 market and would just kind of float there and be overlooked but I was wondering if SLI between the 1070Ti and the 1070 was possible. I'm not all that clued up on GPU's but I'd like someone to shed some light on this idea.

No, for SLI to work the GPU has to be the same exact chip(in this case either a 1070 or a 1070Ti) with the exact same VRAM amount.

 

We're all confused as to why the 1070Ti is a thing too haha.

it would be like trying to do SLI with a 1080 and 1080 TI just wont work
yeah the 1070 TI coming out is stupid given how late it is but may be due to AMDs vaga cards.

it sucks coz im waiting to get 2 of the next get 1080s and with the 1070 TI coming out feels like it will be while before they release next gen cards.

Now I was giving this a bit of thought and do you think, given the price point of the card this could try and cut into the cryptocurrency mining boom? These cards come in cheaper and if nvidia was to offer a decent farming card undercutting the vega's it would take away from amd? I was looking at the card price and it seems to only be around £30 give or take on some sites and if it does have a big performance gain I can see it having a big appeal in farming rigs. We saw all the 980TI's get snatched up towards the end of the 900's era GPUs and I feel like it will follow the same flow since we are reaching the end of the cycle. No idea if these cards are efficient farmers so my post may now be pointless 

 

(P.S sorry for the super messy post, new here and posting in between PUBG games :)  )

The GTX 1070 Ti indeed is targeting into the AMD's RX 580 mining market, it is a GTX 1080 using the GDDR5 memory that provides superior performance on mining specific loads that didn't benefit from GDDR5X like games do.

 

Gaming and computing wise the GTX 1070 was competing fine enough against the RX Vega 54 and the GTX 1080 with the RX Vega 64, the only place nVidia was behind was here.
