    GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FAILS After Gaming for 2 Hours

    I have bought and owned NVIDIA graphics cards for a long time. There has been a lot of talk about the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition failing lately, a lot of that just being anecdotal. After playing games for two hours this evening this is what I was met with. Unlucky? Or do RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition video cards have some issues?

    Is Neil Young a 2080ti user?

    Looks like little Space Invaders...Cool!

    Seriously though, this is more than just a little concerning, especially considering the cost of the hardware.

    Glad I resisted the urge to buy one at release, hopefully this gets sorted soon so I can eventually pull the trigger.

    It does look like Spaced Invaders. Maybe the cards just come with that free game? Lol

    So Nvidia got a bad batch of Micron GDDR6 chips and if you send it in for RMA you will get a card with Samsung GDDR6 instead? And the card works too? Wow better make a sensationalist blog post about how Nvidia shit the bed because you OC'ed bunk memory.

    Guess the card is in the bottom .01%

    Yeah. Sure.

    Kyle said the card was running at stock clocks - given that there is no voltage control on RTX cards, I find it hard to believe that the couple hours it spent overclocked damaged the card.

    If the card (memory) dies even after a small overclock, then I wouldn't trust it with longevity anyways.

    I mean, these days the cards have lock on how much power can be used. Even if you overclock the card, it's still within that locked power target, so if it dies inside of that "we think this is the practical limit lock", then it's just shitty hardware.

    You're acting as if any overclocking at all should break things. This is not the norm, this should not happen en masse. But it does, so yeah, it's shit QA. So fuck nvidia is entirely warranted.

    He was running an OC while it was artifacting for a couple hours. Maybe don't do that? Maybe just RMA the card and get a new one?

    Or just cry about it without posting any specifics. That works too.

    nVidia has these cards locked down so tight. If 5% OC and 20% more power kills a card it was on it’s way out anyways. What an assinine post.

    Because overclocking has never, EVER killed an otherwise functional video card in the past, right? Don't push the limits if you can handle the consequences. The fact that Kyle's post has very little specifics such as what the OC was and how he was loading the card and instead is heavy on how his new card just died "it wuz on stock guis, don't mind that previous OC" tells me all I need to know.

    Well since this was his first time OC a video card, you might question it......

    There is a pattern of them dying which I guess if you open your eyes, you might see a small one as well. He is simply stating how his experience went. You started to Reeeeeeeee!

    Yeah, the pattern so far seems to be with a small batch of Micron GDD6 chips giving up the ghost. Funny I'm the "Reeeeeeee!" man pointing this out.

    If it’s a properly built card it’s impossible to kill off Turing. It’s not like you can jack voltage like the old days. Everything is locked down. If he did something that would be able to kill the card it wouldn’t be covered by warranty but it is.

    funny, everytime an Nvidia card failed on me it was due to the memory shitting the bed, giving similar/same results as this.

    Aww, another anti-Nvidia brigade member who measures penises with electronic based white knight-ism . Sorry, I'm not conforming to your little echo chamber.

    I think your definition of white knightism is skewed as you seem to be the one white knighting nvidia. Nvidia thinks you’re a nice guy but just wants to be friends.

    What am I saying, carry on I’m here for the lulz
