NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Allegedly Spotted On Shipping Manifest With 10GB Of Memory
A database discovery corroborates findings of a PG611 with 10GB GDDR Memory
There's a lot of detail here actually, so let's dig in. First, this report is different than the other report that was discovered in the wild. It shows the same origin country of China and the same port of discharge (India) which is a place where shipments are dispersed from a vessel like an aircraft. It may or may not be the final port of destination, however. The description of the product, of course, is where the meat is. In fact, we do have a product dubbed "PG611" with the SKU 0010 GPU, that has a 384-bit memory bus (hello full fat GP102 Pascal memory bandwidth!) and yes, 10240MB GDDR, or 10GB of RAM. The other obvious details are that it is indeed a "computer graphics card" but also with a per unit value of 68,276 INR or Indian Rupee (₹). This would equate to roughly a $1,010.00 value for this one unit quantity. That, however, likely does not represent actual NVIDIA
So what have we learned here and what can we say definitively? Definitively, we can't say much of anything. All of this is speculation and rumor at this point. However, we do know that there was likely a shipment out there that went from China to India on the 8th of November. On that shipment was a product designated as a computer graphics card with a 384-bit memory bus and 10GB of GDDR memory with the PG611 GPU designation, which NVIDIA otherwise refers to as GP102.
At the very least this spells out a GP102 GPU strapped with only 10GB of memory, versus the full 12GB on the Titan X. Should we call it a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti? We're not sure what we should call it and we don't know critical details like core and memory clock speeds, how many SM Units are enabled, etc. However, with the rumblings of a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti making a debut possibly in or around the CES time frame, it's an interesting possibility that is seemingly coming more into focus.
