Hello everyone, I have a Galax 2080 ti Dual Black and the GPU-Z 2.38.0 reports 107c on these sensors.
Could this be a read error?

Seems like you need to replace the TIM, high hotspot temperature usually indicate that the GPU die is not fully covered by TIM.

That doesn't appear to be an error.

Normal hotspot is 15 - 30c hotter than GPU temp.

You can try repasting but there is no guarantee it will lower temps. I'd recommend a non-conductive paste and to be very generous with the application.

i see that hot spot and mem temp about one month ago. Gainward 2080 GS has it, my Evga 1080 only hot spot temp. 2070 strix only hot temp sensor.
I see about 92C maximum in both sensors with 2080. i only play red dead 2. For now i raise fans in afterburner when i play, along with case fans and cpu fan.
When i have about 65C on gpu, i see 85C on sensors.
Room temp about 22c or lower when i open windows.

Regarding your gpu, open afterburner on fan settings, and raise fans about 80%, apply, and test.
My 2080 has dust for over 1,5 years...i was thinking to clean it today. But i do not like at all >90c on this 1200 euro card.( price that i pay).
In over 20 years, i notice that all my cards that stay at about 85-90C in games, they all died in about maybe one year.( gts8800 640, etc).
