Is this the first solid evidence of the highly anticipated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti making its way to the hands of eager gamers? Sometime last week a computer graphics card with 10GB of GDDR5 memory arrived from China and was noted by officials in Bangalore. The serial numbers, stored on Zauba (via VideoCardz) were pretty close to those from previously shipped GeForce GTX Titan X Pascal cards but with some key differences.
If we pick through the 'description' above, there are a few things to note.
- PG611 SKU0010 GPU is basically the Zauba 'description' of the Pascal Titan X card incremented by 10.
- PG611 is the PCB design, comes with GP102 GPU.
- 10GB of VRAM is 2GB less than the Titan X.
- The RAM is attached to the GPU via a 384-bit interface.
Several sites speculate about how many Streaming Multiprocessors and CUDA cores the GP102 in the 10GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will have activated. It's likely to be somewhere in between the Pascal GTX Titan X (3,584 CUDA cores) and the regular GTX 1080 (2,560 CUDA cores). That will position it comfortably for Nvidia, noticeably outperforming the GTX 1080 while not cannibalising its GTX Titan X sales.
Last but not least, a price of 68,276 Rupees is on the shipping manifest for customs purposes, which translates to roughly £800, or US$1,000. However, Zauba value indicators don't always correlate to market prices for various business reasons.
