Information appeared on the Internet that one of the users of the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card sent his defective card for a complaint, but it was resolved in an unexpected way. Nowadays, in the event of an acute shortage of cards, we could expect a refund, but the owner received a brand new piece. According to the number 11G-P4-6693-K7, it should probably be an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 and the serial number started with the number “21”, which indicates the year of manufacture 2021.
Now the question is how it is possible that EVGA produced a card of this type this year, respectively. where she came to these chips on the Pascal architecture. It could be an iron supply of chips for a complaint procedure, it could also be a new batch of chips that Nvidia wants to address the lack of graphics cards. We may not see this until the coming weeks if GeForce 1080 Ti appears in stores.
