    to everyone:

    please excuse me if i make a dumb, not too tech pro statement, since i may not be so tech experienced as many user here, or if maybe this was already discussed, i havent read this whole thread, (just searched for words "1709" "1803" "1809" with no results), but this video, and other i recently watched, dont remeber exactly where, where a RTX user is also having similar issues while playing shadow of the tomb rider where the game has a lot of pauses while in game, just like this video, reminds me that i recently did a test on a spare HDD with a clean installed windows 10 pro version 1809, 17763.55 with latest updates and with NV drivers 416.16, 416.34, and even the latest 416.81 with a GTX980TI , i7 4770k @4.2hz, 8GB ram system and i have experienced very similar issues like those videos on rise of the tomb rider testing at full settings no AA@ 1920x1080 dx12 API, where the game has a lot of in game pauses similar to those videos. however, the interesting thing is that the issue does not occur in a clean installation of windows 10 pro version 1709 using same settings, same hardware, same drivers, same game scene.

    i have the feeling that in 1809 there may be something broken with VRAM management since those in game pauses are typical issues when a video card runs out of VRAM. it would be interesting to know if there are RTX users on the 1709 version having all those issues which seems related to VRAM (visual artifacting, pauses, etc).

    so even if my test was not performed with RTX card, i think it can be worth to share my experience, and since 1809 is known to be a very rushed update, who knows? it could be a potencial culprit of all this RTX mess? in fact a have experienced other gaming issues with 1809 like in evil within 2, which has some random mouse stutters when i play it at 75 fps@75hz, an issue that also does not occur in 1709

    Wouldn't it be funny if Win10 were killing the cards?

    That would be really funny to me; Win10 the eternal Beta OS.

    "We're Winning!!"

    It's stories like this that make me glad I decided to cheap out and stick with my gtx 1080 while waiting for 7nm parts.

    Interesting, running 1803 here. So far still works. Makes me hesitant to go Fall update...

    Guess I'm extra glad I got an EVGA card rather than an FE.

    I'm getting those stutters too in Call of Duty when I have SLI enabled. The game might graphically freeze for 10-20 seconds at a time before proceeding to normal. Removing SLI they went away, but I'm hoping this is just a driver problem, as I haven't seen any other issues.

    Looks like Nvidia has pulled the 2080ti FE cards from its own website, they are no longer listed at all. Not notify or anything.

    I ordered a thermal imaging camera to look into this a little closer.

    Also, I talked to a couple of people that actually BUILD video cards and I got the same feedback as to what I expected.....memory issues. And yes the card does have Micron on it.

    Multi monitor is reported as causing problems and I don't believe the latest update fixed it at all. The only issue fixed is the g-sync related BSOD currently.

    But it was the greatest 2 hours of gaming of my life. Looking forward to Nvidia365 where we can rent our cards.

    Guess bad batch micron is high on the suspect list or a cooling implementation failure.

    My Gainward RTX 2080Ti Phoenix Golden Sample finally got returned for RMA, it should arrive at the retailer tomorrow and I am curious if they'll just refund me. They have said that because of the many RTX 2080Ti issues they are currently not restocking those models.

    Also Nvidia are changing the prefix on the cards now.

    What cam?
    Wish I'd known you were in the market, could have pointed you in the right direction. Because I don't see you getting 384x288 (actual thermal resolution, not some doubled CMOS bullshit marketing) VOx sensor for 800-1k USD anywhere else ;)
    Currently developing a product that uses 1024x768 Gen2 aSi microbolometers @ 120Hz with custom optics... so know a thing or two about them lol.

    Will be very interesting to see what you find.

    Hook me up then. Bought mine Flir on Amazon, so I can easily return it.

    Ah of course, you need temperature point measurement which is a bit different to what I'm doing. I'll dig tonight and see what I can find for you.

    That's why I chose just the 2080 Ti and not the Xtra Charred edition.

    Fine print: Cool card using water block only. Fans only excite small sparks and flames.

    Wow, you would think that at the new highest of high price points, QC would be top notch or at least better than before but ...

    Now that 2080ti cards are actually available here and there, I look at my rig and get that upgrade itch ... then I think about the teething issues that people are posting and muster up enough willpower to put my wallet away and click away from the buy it now / add to cart.

    Since it's a FE card, I hope Nvidia takes care of this pronto!

    So I got my thermal camera in today to see if I can get this card fired back up and see if the RAM is getting that hot. Not counting on it though. Used live chat to initiate the RMA. They did not give me an RMA, just asked about issues, and told me I would be contacted by RMA department.

    It just works, it just works, it just... crashes, overheats the memory, locks at 1350 mhz, bsods, ctds, screen artifacts and all that good stuff.

    What the hell? A $1200 video card does not get excuses. This is a hell of a problematic launch for Nvidia.

    Looks like they launched a 'Beta' product.

    I'm waiting for 30 series, so I can skip the early adopter pains of the 20 series! LOL. Oh and maybe Ray Tracing will actually be working in games by 2020 or whenever it is 30 series comes out. :p

    Waiting for customer? No. No you are not. I am waiting for NVIDIA.

    This bullshit is what i'm most worried about if my card does fail. Having to deal with Digital River and whatever horeshit contract they have going with Nvidia is not going to be good.

    I'd have gotten EVGA if the card was available given their better customer service.

    I submitted an RMA (withing 30 days). It took them a bit to respond, but when they did it was fairly straightforward and has a 30 day return period, which is pretty generous. I'm debating whether to keep the FE or grab an EVGA in light of the issues.

    I'd go EVGA due to the somewhat better RMA process and with the 3 slot cooler design in particular you'll be able to push it harder.

    I only get the FE myself because it was the only one available, but I really wanted the XC ultra.
