It will be at launch.
HBM isnt being used.
I'm talking about discrete GPUs not consoles.
I am often speaking to someone in the US so was being cautious.
I'm going through a return to BK electronics after under 2 weeks of owning an...
Reviewers found their cards were crashing and reported it.
EVGA confirmed the problem and tracked it down to the capacitors used.
All AIBs appear...
Getting a refund has nothing to do with frequency, the cards crash under normal use.
NVidia can fix it but a buyer does not need to accept a...
You can ask for a refund, the cards crash unless downclocked.
A few things went wrong.
This is nothing to do with PCB design or component quality, its down to choosing the right part for the job.
That doesnt explain how reviewers were sent problem cards if they had supposedly already found them to be substandard.
The last people you want to...
Their post confirms cards tested prior to the first driver release had problems.
Those sent to reviewers were in this state, the reviewers proved...
Your linked post seems to confirm it.
But jeez I hope I'm right about saying that, I read it a few days ago and cant locate where.
I think it must have been to hide performance, yes.
What baffles me most is prior to reviews, AIBs couldnt even test with a driver, they only had stress testing software from NVidia!
Based on the previous launch, AMD arent going to do you any favours with price/performance.
They need to make as much money as possible so cant...
It appears some of the Asus Tuf photos are not of the final.
The final uses small caps (light brown).
Its the reason images of caps are being posted.
Igors lab did a write up too.
I would report the problem and ask how long the return window is.
Might as well still have a 3080 until more are in stock.
Be sure to read the post above yours.
That will be caused by this, unstable GPU voltage at very high boost clocks due to bad capacitor choices....
Igors Lab have an article showing crashes are caused by too large capacitors at very high boost clocks, causing voltage supply to the GPU to not...
