It is said that NVIDIA has resumed production of the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the graphics card may return.
It has been suggested that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti model, which is shown as one of the best graphics cards by NVIDIA to date, may begin to be supplied again. The source of this claim was that one of the users in a forum called Quasar Zone told him that he received a newly manufactured GeForce GTX 1080 Ti after sending the old 1080 Ti graphics card to a replacement due to a malfunction.
More than 4 years have passed since the launch of the flagship Pascal graphics card GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The Pascal GP102 GPU-based GTX 1080 Ti offered a significant performance boost over previous Maxwell generation flagships. AMD’s only answer to this was the Vega 64, which can only compete with the GTX 1080. It took several years for AMD to provide a serious response to NVIDIA. AMD made a competitive comeback in the gaming graphics segment for high-performance enthusiasts with Big Navi GPUs at the end of last year.
Of course, the return of the graphics card, which still performs successfully, will be remarkable. The production date of the new card sent to the return is 2021, creating a question mark in the minds. Note that the card is an EVGA SC model.
Considering that EVGA has given a 3-year warranty to NVIDIA GPU-based graphics cards, it is stated that this is not possible. It doesn’t make much sense to produce new batches of a card that has been replaced with newer offers, even if it’s for guarantee. Most replacement units are manufactured early, not 4 years after launch. On the other hand, it is also possible for EVGA to use its spare units to produce new units.
NVIDIA has recently resumed production of legacy GTX 1050, GTX 1650 and RTX 2060 series graphics cards to combat video card and GPU deficiencies. The GTX 1080 Ti is likely to make a comeback during this period. Let’s see if an official statement will come from the NVIDIA front.
