After the introduction of the GeForce RTX series, questions popped up about what would happen to the current Pascal-based lineup. The GeForce GTX 1080 series is one of the biggest competitors of the GeForce RTX lineup, so it's no surprise to see that NVIDIA is ending production of some parts.

GamersNexus heard from multiple industry sources that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPU is no longer in production. Supply of GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards is dwindling fast, and it won't take long until the card is completely out of stock.
GamersNexus has heard through multiple industry sources that US-based supply of GTX 1080 Tis is dwindling, with manufacturers running low on inventory of the previous flagship. The GTX 1080 Ti Pascal GPU is no longer in production, so we would not expect a refill of stock in the future. The high-end GTX cards will soon be supplanted by the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards, although the second-hand market is still flush with cards from ex-miners. Given that the 1080 Ti is NVIDIA’s biggest competition to its own 2080, this shift in availability will be interesting to observe for its impact on pricing, if there is any.
On a related note, the site also heard that US-based vendors are trying to pull as much inventory as they can to the US, as supply that arrives after January will be subject to the tariff increase. As part of Trump's trade war with China, a 10 percent tariff was slapped on a wide variety of Chinese imports in September, and this rate will increase to 25 percent at year-end. Lots of computer parts are affected, so vendors are scrambling to get supply at the current rate. If US-based vendors bid up, this could mean less supply for the rest of the world, and thus higher prices.
