NVIDIA Job Listing Confirms GTX 1080 Ti and Reveals 'Club GeForce Elite'
NVIDIA's rumored high-performance graphics card and a new loyalty program confirmed via LinkedIn.
NVIDIA has been tight-lipped about the existence of the GTX 1080 Ti, but a job posting on LinkedIn has confirmed that the card is part of the company's upcoming products. An upcoming NVIDIA loyalty was detailed in the job listing as well.
The good news if you bought the GTX 980 Ti is that NVIDIA plans to reward you with " the first spot in line for GTX 1080 Ti pre-orders." There may also be a "Step Up" offer that provides an incentive for upgrading to the GTX 1080 Ti.
NVIDIA will also be introducing Club GeForce, a program which offers rewards to those signed up for GeForce Experience. Benefits will include a free indie game, free skins or in-game items for AAA games every few months, and early access to Talos and NVIDIA's first-party content. Club GeForce members will also qualify for weekly giveaways of free game codes, in-game currency, beta access to games, gaming accessories, and gaming event tickets.
NVIDIA also plans to offer a Club GeForce Elite service for $10 per month. Those who subscribe will get access to a rotating bundle of free games from the GeForce Experience App Store which will launch alongside the Club GeForce service, as well as a "GeForce PC in the cloud" subscription, in-game items, exclusive skins, and more.
There will also be incentives for submitting bug reports and suggesting new features, as well as forum interaction. Game codes will be given to those that affect the community in a positive way the most.
More than likely the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be announced at CES next month. Performance and pricing haven't been announced, but rumors state it will have similar stats to the Titan X except instead of GDDR5X memory it will have GDDR5 RAM. Stay tuned to Shacknews for more on the GTX 1080 Ti as news becomes available.
