    If you have a RTX Space Invaders, drop me a mail. I am looking for a RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition card to buy. So before you send it in for RMA to NVIDIA, give me a chance to buy it.

    Planning to run it with your other Space Invaders card to test SLI performance?

    Oh hell, what is Kyle up to? Going to throw them into the oven and try to bake them? Use it as a second SLI card? Giant keychain?

    TELL US!

    Where were you years ago Kyle! I had plenty of IBM DeskStar 75GXP's I coulda sold to you. Don't know where you're going with the borked 2080's but I LIKE IT.

    I would imagine this call is to test the full Ray Tracing capabilities of the hidden Space Invaders game that was included in all the RTX GPUs.
    It looks like you unlock the game by simply overheating the GPU during normal use.

    Me thinks that we will have new tests. How many 2080 ti's does it take to stop a .50 cal.....:D

    This is great!.....except despite all the happily expectant posters this news has generated; none (myself included) have been able to proffer the wanted item.

    The graphical glitch when a RTX card bites the dust is reminiscent of playing Space Invaders.

    My bet: he thinks he knows what's wrong. Needs to be able to repeat the cure.

    Best way to be sure you've identified the problem, bro. A million ways to break a card. Only one to fix it. If you can manipulate the card into working condition, then you've exactly located the issue. It's just a guess. It's what I'd be trying to prove.

    Go to 19:35 on this video on gamersnexus.


    You see space invaders right when furmark (Kombustor) crashes. Yet NO ONE mentions this, not even Steve...

    Uh, excuse me, why would you attempt to get us to skip past the adorable Snowflake?! Is that a bannable offense or just like, an infraction. Seriously, I want to pet that cat ( might be the Double IPA, whiskey, and Vodka all talking though.)

    Still running my 2080ti FE no problem. If it dies though i'll let you know. I'm past the point of no return for the return period.

    Better be careful, Kyle. There's a rumor going 'round that you can get a social disease from a bad RTX 2080 ti if you don't mount it right:

    I'm certainly trying my best.

    Core and memory overclocked to the limit and marathon sessions of graphically intensive games with the frame cap turned off. If it's going to go out, I want it to happen BEFORE I slap a waterblock on it.

    So far it's holding strong and I don't expect that to change, despite the issues we've heard about.

    I wonder if Kyle is going to cook them in an oven or something. Stranger things have worked before.
