GeForce GTX 1080 Ti resurrected from the dead?

Published by


And yes, we do mean that literally, as the GPU has been declared end-of-life for a long time already. But, much like the production ramp-up for 1050 Ti and RTX 2060, the GTX 1080 Ti might be revived.

Recently a user of South Korean tech platform Quasar Zone had his four-year-old GTX 1080 To returned the card for a repair, and he received a brand new 1080 Ti as a replacement. He had a peek, and despite this GPU being EOL; he noticed the serial number indicating the product was produced in 2021. Indicating it's a fresh batch.

It would not be uncommon for Nvidia to put an older GPU back into production with the current shortages, and older it is as it was released in 2017. Baked at 16nm FinFEt NVIDIA might have found some production capacity somewhere. Hey, it's still a very decent WQHD card.  There are so many contradictions to this story that I would not know where to begin. Perhaps a batch was fdabbed just for RMA replacements, who knows. So for now take it with a grain or two of salt and as-is.
