So here it can be seen, that to lower MSRP (or probably just BOM) manufactuers cheapen out of filtering caps, which makes card more prone to crashes. nVidia FE are fine in this reagard.
Umm actually it was not exactly EVGA which cheapen out the most, it's still better 50% from those two other cards. ASUS TUF seems to be great in this sense, tho.Man am I glad I decided to not get a 3080. Not that I could have gotten one if I wanted to.
Yeah, this video is bad news for those who bought an EVGA card. EVGA is a brand I love, so this gives me pause for buying a card
Fuck I bought an evga rtx3090 ftw3 hope there not effected.
lmao. i came here to post this. how do you even cheap out on a $700 card? and the fact that every AIB did it. all of them went with either the 6 cheap ones or 5.
Absolutely shocking and i hope they have a lawsuit coming their way.
nvidia is fucked if they had the cheap ones in the reference designs because then they are liable and not the AIBs.
evga 3080 is only using one instead of two. which will still cause issues. do not open it when you do receive it and wait to see how its built. they are pushing power well beyond the 3080 so that thing should have three of those expensive arrays, not just two.
i did. All the AIB gpus he showed were using the cheap parts.Overreact much? No, every AIB did not do it. Please research the facts before saying something like that.
Also lmao at lawsuits. This can be fixed with a bios or driver update. Did you even watch the video?
Yep. same. I was considered trying to get one once the initial rush died down, but I knew they were going to sell out and plus realized that I would want a bit more memory after hearing rumors of a 20GB version coming.Asus seems to be the card to go for.
That said, as much as I want to upgrade to 3080, i'll be waiting for 20gb for that better future proofed performance.
By the time they roll out the 20GB 3080(ti) all these issues will be ironed out.
There is always this risk when you rush to buy the very first batch that rolls out ( of anything ). It always has way more lemons than if you just would have waited a month or two.
Yeah well, wonder how much that TUF is going to cost...
UMMMM, isn't Zotac called here as another brand suffering from this issue?Zotac ftw. Thought I had to be getting expensive brands like msi and gigabyte but nope, my 1080 from zotac has been golden, I'll be buying them from now on. And it was a "mini" model with simple dual (quiet) fans yet without any cuts in performance, clocks (it even was factory OC a bit), etc., like other minis do yet still cheaper.
That's like FE, so fine : )
Ohh so Samsung, Micron memories round 2, great...If that's a stock photo it's not representative of what customers are receiving unfortunately.. Some people are even reporting having different configurations to what's pictured and even different ones to what the reviewers received.
It's a bit of a lottery at the moment with certain AIB's:
I hope all the scalpers sitting there with AIB cards stacked up in their living rooms are now sweating and can't shift them.
