Well, if it's manifesting the same issues on all three... of my systems. Then it's the video card. SO, by your logic I should run whatever replacement I get, exclusively, on the new system I'm building in my front room. Fine. Not sure how in the hell that's gonna matter if my lower binned video card is shit like the first three but, I am happy to oblige. It's essentially the same system, in my front room, as my den. 8600 vs 9600 cpu and only 16 GB of ram vs 32. Power Supply is supposed to show up today. We shall see.
This shit is utterly exhausting. None of the three cards I've had have the level of stability I would associate with a stable release of new tech. Dial things back to the 1080Ti era, the odds of receiving 3 bad cards in a row is insanely minor. I have to wait until the 7th for EVGA to respond anyway, they're on vacation according to their website. I have plenty of time to document the failures of the current card.
I am single, I have this inordinate amount of time to play games and such that allow me to study the output of the video card. I have never, in my life, seen this many issues associated with any video card I've ever used. For example, gamed on the current card flawlessly for almost 24 hours on Saturday. I was up til 6am. The issues manifested around 2am. Whatever the card is doing, it gives me a fucking headache, literally. Not because it's failing but because it's fucking with my head. The added strain on my brain from the glitches definitely is wearing my ass out.
I’ve had a bad GPU wreck other systems I tried it in. It’s one reason I replace a system in it’d entirety if it starts dying.
However, in this situation I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility you had multiple bad cards and your systems are fine. There’s been enough reports of it... including from Kyle himself...
