NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080ti Confirmed?

DSOGaming has the image of European retail packaging for Halo Wars 2 that appears to be a confirmation of plans for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080ti graphics cards. NVIDIA usually offers a ti variant as a top-end card, but none has yet been announced for the 1080, in spite of rampant rumors. The box offers Ultra system requirements, and under GPU they list the AMD R9 Fury X and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080ti.

Out of the Blue

I dropped our glass coffee carafe today, and it broke. There was nothing dramatic about it, as all the shards were contained in the empty sink. So cleanup was a breeze, and we've already secured a replacement. It's not much of a story, but at this point I feel strongly compelled to accurately report all coffee-making disasters in the BlueTower in a timely manner. I've cced my lawyer, so I think I'm covered.
