The card uses a black/white appearance with the usual backplate, including dragon embellishments. Red accents are located between the 'ridges' in the design.
We don't yet know the PCB design. We're thinking it's the Gaming X PCB, which is actually quite good, but with a bigger cooler. We do know that the card has 2x 8-pin headers, stepping down from the 3x 8-pin gimmick configuration of the Lightning Z.
From top-down shots, we can see that a MOSFET cooling plate is located on the bottom of the finstack, making direct contact with the power stages and flanking the chokes.
We might not be looking at this one. Interest in the 15th 1080 Ti review seems to be down, but it's always a possibility. We'd just say not to expect one, at this point. Lots of other stuff to work on.
Japanese site GDM spotted this at Tokyo Game Show, so we will direct you there for the rest of the images.
