GTX 1080 Ti: it could be back on the market to fill the shelves!

GTX 1080 Ti: it could be back on the market to fill the shelves!

As we all know, at the moment, the GPU market is in complete chaos. Between the drops of some cards here and there, the crazy prices that do not respect the recommended prices, etc… We do not know who to believe anymore. However, a new rumor is coming to light. Indeed, if we believe it PCGamesN nVidia could bring one of its old GPUs back to life. After the GTX 1050 Ti, RTX 2060and GTX 1650it is the GTX 1080 Ti that could come back on the market!

GTX 1080 Ti: the card could return to the market [rumors]!

GTX 1080 TiGiven the particular situation of the graphics card market, the greens could well revive their old flagship. The goal behind this would be, of course, to offer cards for sale. As it is, our flagship stores: LDLC, Top Achat or materiel.net have no stock to display… Or at what price! If we jump on Amazon.com we find four RTX 3080 iChill x3 from Inno3D at… 2300€ !!! As a reminder, the recommended price for an RTX 3080 is $699. That’s more than three times the price!

In short, we understand why it is urgent to offer something on this completely empty market. Rumor has it that the GTX 1080 Ti could be back, and even after four years it still offers solid performance. In the latest tests by TechpowerUp the card did a little better than an RTX 3060 as it stands, coming up to the level of an RTX 2070 Super.

On the other hand, if such a card were to make a comeback in 2021, how much would it cost? That’s a legitimate question since it’s hard to imagine it coming back at its MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested price) of $699. Yes, that’s the same price as the 3080. Considering the performance/consumption ratio, a price close to that of an RTX 3060 would be a good compromise, provided that it is listed at $329 on the market and not 800 for example.

Anyway, at the moment, it’s just a rumor, so we’ll just have to wait and see if it is confirmed or not. In the meantime, our colleagues have approached EVGA and nVidia to get a comment … But again, a priori, we will have to wait a long time for the answer.
