how many watts can a 1080 ti (gpu) utilize?

for example lets say i have a 1080 ti in a computer rig with a 1600w psu.

will the 1080 ti be able to get around 1200 watts of the psu? or will the 1080 ti max out (have a limit) on how much watts it is able to utilize?

There is a finite amount of power it can use -- around 300w~ under reasonable overclocks (e.g. no LN2). To get it to use more power you have to overclock it further and push more power to it (which requires better cooling or leads to a dead GPU).

it only draws around 350W of power. if you want it to consume more, overclock it.

It will only use what it needs (~300W), regardless of how powerful your PSU is.

Unless your PSU is not powerful enough, in which case it will either catch fire or shut off.

how do you know that the 1080 ti is able to reach around 300w?
