This article is a bit more honest about the situation:
http://www.pcgamer.com/you-might-not-be-able-to-overclock-nvidias-geforce-gtx-1070-ti/


I had read the Chinese website from the article. It did say all GTX 1070Ti share the same clock speed regardless of the manufacturer you buy the card from. It said if you want better performance you could only manually overclock the card. It is very user unfriendly. But how to overclock the card now if the clock speed is locked by the Nvidia? They provided you solution that it could only be done at manufacturer level by means such as providing overclocking tools to bypass the restriction. But Nvidia is kinda strict on the matter as I read through different forums.

It's best to just wait until review samples are sent out and the NDA is lifted to know the truth for sure.
Hmm...

So which are you going for TC?

I'm putting a few builds together, I'm trying to find one for around 1,000 bucks, I'm leaning towards Vega as it should last a little longer for me than the 1070 but the prices are comparable.

This is what I have selected (I already have an SSD at home so I didn't include one in the build):

Looks nice. If you're looking to hit 1000 then I'd go with a non-modular (cheaper) PSU and drop the HDD, put in your SSD and pick up a HDD on either a Black Friday sale or later on.

Would wait for the non-reference models of Vega 56, if you are going to get one.

This, or another name for it is aftermarket. This way you can get a cheaper freesync monitor and the 56 is supposely 20% more powerful than a 1070. And or if you are a dirty no good miner.

Typically, because AMD GPUs tend to have more hardware on them than their nVidia market competitors, they scale better to higher resolutions. It's not always the case, but it's often the case. nVidia's GPUs are more efficient, which allows them to reduce frametimes in easier workloads, but for beefier rendering tasks, AMD usually scales better and ages better.

If you're targeting high framerates, Intel/nVidia is the way to go. For low framerates and high resolutions, AMD/AMD is often the better value. For a good mix, AMD/nVidia or Intel/AMD are actually a nice middle ground, usually.
