Is Pascal’s consumer flagship getting a new lease on life?

Is Nvidia resurrecting its back catalogue in order to solve the graphics card shortage crisis? If a new report is right, the GTX 1080 Ti, a former consumer flagship, will be the next product to be revived.

The rumor, and that’s all it is right now, comes from regular leaker Harukaze5719 (via PCGamesN). They spotted a post on Korean hardware forum Quasarzone suggesting the card, launched in March 2017, could be given a new lease of life.

A forum user writes that they returned their old card for an RMA since it was already under warranty for three years. Nothing out of the ordinary there, but the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti they got in exchange was brand new, with a release date of 2021.

This does not actually indicate that the Pascal card is being resurrected; it is likely that these new cards are a small batch created for warranty replacements, and the internet has a reputation for forgery. However, history shows that a re-release of the GTX 1080 Ti is a clear possibility.

The global chip scarcity, cryptominers, and scalpers have merged to produce a perfect storm, making obtaining a new graphics card virtually impossible and pricey. As a result of the crisis, Nvidia has resumed development of the GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1650, and RTX 2060 in the hopes of bringing more cards into the hands of gamers.

The GTX 1080 Ti is still in demand today. If the card is relaunched, it is expected to rise from its current position of 18th on the Steam Hardware Survey. It also performs well in relation to recent releases—check out our feature from last year that compared it to the RTX 2070 and Radeon 5700 XT, where it delivered comparable performance to the Turing GPU. Also, see how the GTX 1080 Ti compares to the GTX 980 Ti and RTX 2080 Ti.
