I recently received 3 new Power 8's. With them I also received two new
HMC's. Both were loaded with 8.8.1. They were only one hot fix behind. I
also received 8.8.1 media. Now, I 'think' that came in a separate box
with a bunch of other media, like IBM i and AIX and websphere, websphere
and them some websphere and after that even more websphere media.

As Others have said, It Depends. It sounds to me though like you were
thinking about the HMC rather than the Power System since you mentioned
version 8.1.0.

Unlike Cisco where gear is often in warehouses for months before it
ships
to customers, IBM loads them just prior to shipping them which means
they
are very current both version and fix levels when you get them.

If you ordered a Power8 and you're getting a new HMC with it, then I
would
expect it will show up with 8.1.0 on it but I have not yet seen this
combination ordered so I could be wrong. My customers have had existing
HMCs to this point.

Would anyone know what versions would ship with the system, would they
be
preloaded with the 8.1.0 or would it all come un-installed. Do they
ship
it with DVD's to get it current or are they counting on internet access
to
do all this.
