I forgot about RTX 2080 Ti, they work fine with Titan X:

Name=gpu Type=rtx2080ti File=/dev/nvidia0
Name=gpu Type=rtx2080ti File=/dev/nvidia1
Name=gpu Type=titanx File=/dev/nvidia2
Name=gpu Type=titanx File=/dev/nvidia3
Name=gpu Type=titanx File=/dev/nvidia4
Name=gpu Type=titanx File=/dev/nvidia5
Name=gpu Type=titanx File=/dev/nvidia6
Name=gpu Type=titanx File=/dev/nvidia7
