It is quite possible; that the guys who enjoy writing such an editor, had 980TI and probably didn't see the point in upgrading until a 1080 TI comes out, (as 980TI is only 10% slower than 1080).
That's my *theory* :-)
But; in all honest.. I do think it's a dream...
Nvidia have a MASSIVE Research & Development budget to support; they don't want people overclocking because it jeopardises sales slightly, on their next release. Not to mention potential RMA costs.A lot of hardware roomers have turned out to be untrue lately....
Nvidia never even announced 1080TI at CES!!!:I pulled this off a website:"In the months leading up to CES, there were several rumours floating around claiming that Nvidia would be showing off the GTX 1080Ti- something that ultimately turned out to be untrue. However, the rumour mill doesn’t stop spinning, leading to new reports that the card will now be shown at PAX East on March 10th instead.
Given that past reports turned out to be unreliable, I would recommend taking this information with a dose of scepticism but according to a add-in Board partner source speaking with Tech Buyer’s Guide, the GTX 1080Ti will make its appearance at PAX East in March with variants from MSI.
Apparently Nvidia has chosen to sit on the GTX 1080Ti for a few extra months in order to see what AMD has brewing with Vega 10. Judging from the report, board partners are already preparing variants of the GPU for launch but a founder’s edition wasn’t mentioned at all.
Obviously, the source on this information is anonymous but supposedly this person works for MSI, assuming the source is legitimate to begin with."
Don't even remember why I heard it. Like I said....probably not a very reliable source.....the guy has a friend with a cousin, who's uncle knows a guy that works as a janitor at NVIDIA, and he says "X" type of thing, most likely.
It's my understanding that the guy that makes the editors, is the same guy that does CPUz. W1zzard? Something like that. He makes his home at TPU forums. He'd been working on one, but NVIDIA locked it down pretty tight I guess. Not sure if there's been any progress, but.....if one was to want to go straight to the source, that'd be where I'd start.
I'm not even really concerned about it anymore.....until someone starts beating my scores again, then I'll get interested. haha
