I think I spotted Gigabyte 1080 TI Mini ITX on Aorus Destiny 2 bundle page...

    I was curious if my card is valid to redeem destiny 2 bundle from gigabyte and I spotted a model number that looks like 1080TI Mini ITX from Gigabyte, GV-N108TIX-11GD

    Google won't find anything for this model number, while every other card model number leads at least to the gigabyte's page, so I assume it's unannounced yet. I also didn't find anything about 1080 TI mini from gigabyte either.

    It looks like 1080TI Mini ITX to me because:

    1) Gigabyte 1080 TI models are marked with 108T and 11GD marks the 11GB model like the base 1080TI:

    GV-N108TAORUS-11GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N108TAORUS-11GD#kf
    GV-N108TGAMING-11GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N108TGAMING-11GD#kf
    GV-N108TTURBO-11GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N108TTURBO-11GD#kf

    2) Gigabyte Mini ITX models are marked with IX:

    GV-N1060IX-3GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1060IX-3GD-rev-10#kf
    GV-N1060IXOC-3GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1060IXOC-3GD#kf
    GV-N1060IX-6GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1060IX-6GD-rev-10#kf
    GV-N1060IXOC-6GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1060IXOC-6GD#kf
    GV-N1070IX-8GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1070IX-8GD-rev-10#kf
    GV-N1070IXOC-8GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1070IXOC-8GD#kf
    GV-N1080IX-8GD https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1080IX-8GD#kf

    3) Gigabyte 1080 Mini ITX (GV-N1080IX-8GD) is also on that list, just higher between 1080's so it doesn't seem like a typo.

    Am I late to the party for not knowing that Gigabyte is making 1080 TI Mini ITX ? Or did Aorus website really leak that info?

    Dang, may want to upgrade to this if thermals and the price is right. Good find SaperPL!

    I am getting ready to do a build in a MI-6 which only has room for itx video card. I did have plans to get the Gigabyte GTX 1080 mini, might have to wait and see if this one shows up.

    The interesting thing here is that since we should expect a new generation of nvidia GPUs sometime next year, I think, there's not much time where gigabyte could squeeze the 1080TI Mini for a release before it becomes "last gen" release.

    I do believe this is a real product number, it's too specific to be a typo, but that doesn't mean it's getting released, it might be just sitting there on the internal product list while the actual project to 'minify' 1080TI could've been dropped, for example because of thermals.

    Nice find. I hope you're correct. Gigabyte does mini coolers better than Zotac, their 1080 Ti was a bit of a fail. I'm not sure if it's possible to make a truly ITX 250W card (<180mm). Maybe with an all-copper fin stack and a 140mm fan it would be possible (so a very tall PCB), and Gigabyte did implement a huge single fan design on their 1080 Mini Gaming Box, so it's not out of the question.

    SaperPL does make a good point that a 1080 Ti could be made obsolete by the 180W gaming variant of Volta, although Volta won't be as much of a jump as Pascal was, so it's possible that the 1080 Ti will have similar performance to the 2080 or whatever they call it. Also, once they design a cooler for a 250W ITX card, it can easily be transferred to the next generation, so it's definitely not a lost investment. Most likely Nvidia will keep the same mounting holes, so it will literally be a drop-in replacement. I'm not sure if the PCB design will be as transferable, but I can see Gigabyte releasing this as a proof-of-concept nevertheless. I doubt Volta will come out before May anyway, considering AMD has nothing right now.

    I'm letting myself be excited for this, we need an ITX 1080 Ti.
