A limited edition ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti
While everyone is talking about the Geforce GTX 1070 Ti, Asus has released a limited special edition of the ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti called the Assassin's Creed Origins Edition, which comes with a custom cooler shroud, factory overclock and is, of course, bundled with the Assassin's Creed: Origins game.
Workaround for their custom versions

Shortly after Geforce 388.10 Hotfix

Fixes bugs with Destiny 2 and new Wolfenstein

One way or the other
By now, it is obvious that Nvidia has placed a block on GTX 1070 Ti factory-overclocking for its partners, but it appears that partners are finding different solutions to get their factory-overclocked versions to the market, one way or another.
