no it's not a serial of your card it's something else

Looks like a guid which is a good chance it could be based off model, serial and other things. I have two cards so I got:

Code:

nvidia 0000:84:00.0: irq 106 for MSI/MSI-X
NVRM: GPU at 0000:84:00: GPU-18c849db-bf5b-d1b7-c8f1-8125c962abcd
nvidia 0000:86:00.0: irq 107 for MSI/MSI-X

I got an answer in nvidia forums

"This identifies the GPU to make it easier to tell when errors occur which physical GPU triggered it. It's mostly intended to be used by high performance computing users with thousands of GPUs who might otherwise have trouble telling when two errors are from the same one."
