NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Spotted? Shipping Manifest Shows GP102 with 10GB Memory

Well it looks like someone has spotted a shipping manifest which includes an interesting listing. It has an NVIDIA GP102 GPU listed with 10 GB of graphics memory. Could this be the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti? Below is the actual line from the shipping manifest.

FOC / PG611 SKU0010 GPU / 384-BIT 10240MB GDDR COMPUTER GRAPHICS CARDS, 699-1G611-0010-000

It is no surprise that NVIDIA would use the GP102 GPU on the GTX 1080 Ti. NVIDIA would have the choice to use the same variant that is used on the GTX 1080 or use a cut-down version of the Titan X. The manifest clearly shows that the card does have 10 GB of memory and we have not seen any graphics cards yet with 10 GB of video memory.

Now do not know that this is in fact the GTX 1080 Ti, but we do know that the PG611 board is equipped with GP102 GPU. The actual product number for the Titan X Pascal card is 699-1G611-0000-000, which translates to PG611 SKU 00. The product in the shipping manifest is PG611 SKU 10 (699-1G611-0010-000). So to our knowledge this is a brand new card, unless the listing in the manifest is a total mistake, which is unlikely.

We can also see that the memory bus is 384-bit. If NVIDIA would be using 10 GB for this card it would more than likely require only a 320-bit bus. So the 384-bit bus does not make sense, but this would not be the first time that NVIDIA would make use of more memory controllers than what is really necessary.

Looking at the actual value of the board, if we do the conversion from Rupees it is around $1010, which is cheaper than the Titan X.
