This TI-1706SV introduced together with the TI-503SV and TI-1795SV a new calculator design style in 2003. Compared with the first generation of the TI-1706SV the successor has a stylish coloring scheme using a mixture of white, silver and blue elements.

Main difference is the usage of much thicker plastic for the housing parts, the overall weight (without protective cover) raised from 1.9 ounces to 2.3 ounces.

Texas Instruments continued the design of the TI-1706SV and introduced in 2004 the BA II PLUS Professional, TI-84 PLUS Silver Edition, TI-89 Titanium and all-new TI-36X SOLAR.
