    I'm using opera which is based on chromium.

    I will try some other browsers when I get home. The other thing I will do is open up my publisher and paint the page black and swap my text to white. If it still does it there... I would say we've discovered a display flaw.

    We are consistently reproducing the issue again and are finalizing the thermal chamber testing tomorrow (hopefully). Was supposed to be done that today, however we’ve had some serious weather and the lab techs didn’t make it to the office.


    Next up will be the assessment of the DRAM’s.

    That's good news they have been able to reproduce it again. Thanks for the update.

    Also, another reader has offered us a card that is Space Invaders as well. Looking at putting the funding together to buy that one too. Would certainly give us a solid result hopefully.

    You should put together a donation poll for this, I will happily toss you some bones because this is important. I'm thinking I'm not the only one who would.

    It does it in MS Edge too. Not in my publishing software. Not in the current release of Firefox from what I saw. Doesn't do it in Libre Office either.

    No issues with my RTX 2080 which I've had for over a month now. DDR6 is from Samsung.

    My 2080 Ti has a first-run serial and it's still running well about 5 months later. Has Micron GDDR6. I even got the balls to put a 500 MT/s overclock on the memory with AB :nailbiting:.

    To clarify this is my 2nd 2080 Ti but first AMP. My first 2080 Ti was Palit 2080 Ti Dual and it died after one week.

    The 2080 Ti I got in November is still going strong, although it is an EVGA and not an FE. It's under water and boosts to over 2,100 along with a +500 memory OC. I've pushed memory to +650 at one point with no issues but I decided on +500 for everyday use.

    It's sad to hear that this is still happening. Hopefully it was a card from an initial batch that was sitting on a shelf. Nvidia should have sorted the problem by now, that's for sure.

    I did my build this last weekend using 2x 2080 ti's. The only issue I have had so far is screen flickering when watching hardware accelerated video in Firefox. Not sure whats causing it, but disabling hardware accelerated video fixed it. I tried in other video players that also use hardware acceleration and didnt have any issues.

    I have a buddy with a founders 2080 Ti that seems to behave differently than mine. Under full load with default fan curve, mine will eventually reach 84C or so before it throttles back a bit with the fan at 67%.

    His card (launch day model) seems to hit 85C and the fans just goes nuts, to 100%. He thought it was perhaps a poor case ventilation issue so he just moved to a Meshify case and it's still going at it with plenty of cooling. Unfortunately I don't have direct access to test, but has anyone come across this? He feels like it started a couple of driver updates ago but was normal prior. It sounds like the clocks aren't adjusting properly.

    My first 2080Ti would hit temps like that, even in an excessively ventilated case. There were more reports like this earlier on in the 2080Ti release cycle. I don't think it's the drivers, I think it's more related to the board itself failing. Sounds like he has a bad video card. I would Imagine it will start manifesting artifacts eventually under load. Haven't really seen anything like this in a while (aside from the few boards that space invader from time to time).

    I got a FE and a zotac amp 2080TI and I put both on water blocks and they are oc'ed to the same level as yours ad they have been going strong since mid October. I think the cards are getting too hot or VRM's are too hot since all of us with waterblocks are not having cards fail.

    The issue with the card getting that hot to begin with, even on air, is a bad sign. Water block or no, the card should not be getting that hot. That's an issue that plagued some of us in the very beginning. Waterblocks are great and all, but if the card is overheating in standard usage there's an issue with the card itself. I have a 2080Ti (my third card) that I can run all day long without it ever ramping up the fans or generating a massive amount of heat. I can even max my overclock and it never gets that hot.
