Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 2080 Prototype Shows Up In The Wild

Reddit user (opens in new tab) Ascendance 22 purchased a prototype GeForce 20 series graphics card on eBay branded “GTX”. As you can see in the GPU-Z image, the GeForce GTX 2080 sample looks like his GeForce RTX 2080 with the same Nvidia Founders Edition cooler and his TU104 die. But apparently Nvidia has disabled the RT cores on this prototype, with his GTX badge on the GPU and no ‘GeForce RTX 2080’ badge on the front.

Purchased by a Reddit user GeForce GTX 2080 on eBay (opens in new tab) — Nobody knows what you were doing on eBay in the first place. But it’s fair to say that it’s very rare to see such a prototype in the wild, and usually he’s always kept secret by Nvidia. An eBay merchant sells these GeForce GTX 2080s for $359.95 each as GeForce RTX 2080 engineering samples. There were early rumors that Nvidia was considering launching his GeForce GTX 1180, so this his GeForce GTX 2080 could be the Turing graphics card that never made it to market.
