NVIDIA job listing hints at GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and $10/month Club GeForce Elite

Sometimes details about a company's future plans can be found in places you least expect it, like in a job posting at LinkedIn. The page describes the kind of candidate NVIDIA is looking for to fill a position as Senior Marketing Manager for GeForce, Gamer Loyalty & Advocacy.

NVIDIA confirms upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card
The job posting confirms the existence of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and reveals GeForce GTX 980 Ti users will get the first spot in line for GTX 1080 Ti pre-orders or a "Step Up" program. No further details are provided so we don't know how this step up program will work. This card will likely be presented during NVIDIA's keynote at CES 2017 in January.

NVIDIA planning Club GeForce Elite monthly subscription service
The bottom section of the job listing describes the goal of the GeForce Experience tool, it lines out the current direction and it also talks about NVIDIA's plan to launch a Club GeForce Elite to generate a steady stream of cash from people loyal to the GeForce brand. This service will have a $10 a month subscription fee, in return gamers will get a rotating bundle of four free games per quarter from the GeForce Experience app store, as well as a free GeForce GRID subscription and exclusive in-game items and skins.

Here's a full copy of the section in case it disappears:
