According to recent rumors, production of one of the best graphics cards released to date could soon resume, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti . According to a message posted on the Quasar Zone forum, a user allegedly received a freshly produced batch regarding the GPU in question after sending their old 1080 Ti for RMA.
It’s been more than four years since NVIDIA launched its flagship graphics card: Based on the Pascal GP102 GPU , the GTX 1080 Ti offered a huge performance boost over previous generation Maxwell flagships and completely destroyed the competition with the ‘only response from rival AMD that was the Vega 64 .
Basically, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was a great card in its day and still offers great performance to this day, but so is it making a comeback with a new production? Well, according to Korean forums, a user with RMA of his old GTX 1080 Ti graphics card would have received a new one and what is surprising is that the card would have reported a production date of 2021. The received card is more specifically an EVGA SC model. .
Of course the guy wasn’t alone – another user pointed out that the recently received FTW model also features a production date of 2021. As EVGA issues a 3-year warranty on its graphics cards based on this manufacturer ‘s GPUs. , it all sounds pretty weird since usually most replacement cards are produced early anyway, and no later than 4 years later. This leaves room for multiple hypotheses.
With eyes on the future with the H100 HOPPER project , NVIDIA recently resumed production of its older GTX 1050 , GTX 1650 and RTX 2060 series graphics cards to combat the shortage of gaming graphics cards. The GTX 1080 Ti is likely to make a comeback in these desperate times as well, but we still have to wait for statements from the company, as nothing has been officially confirmed right now.
