Despite multiple alleged reports of NVIDIA’s RTX 2080 Ti failing spectacularly, Gamers Nexus’s board-partner contacts suggest there isn’t anything inherently wrong with how the $1,000+ GPUs were put together, as the amount of RMA requests have been typical and sitting at under 0.01%. Steve also notes that GTX 1080 Ti stock is dwindling, which is of little surprise to anyone who has been browsing the usual storefronts for a 2080 alternative. Talking to all of our board partner contacts off-record, none of them have reported higher RMA requests than normally. We trust our contacts on these and spoke with nearly everyone in the market. The most common RMA reasons haven’t changed from previous generations, and actual RMA rate is exceptionally low right now. Some board partners are at under 0.01%, which is just because these devices are so new that no one has even had a chance to encounter serious problems yet.
