der8auers take on the situation.
Damn, can't watch this at work (better not turn audio on)
But thanks for sharing
OMFG, an objective, honest youtuber with actual numbers?
We live in a time when 1000 likes or retweets can end careers, so it's not surprise that a few loud RMAers can taint a videocard reputation.
Mind you, Caseking's numbers are solely based on AIB cards. The biggest complaint for dying cards is for NV's FE edition.
That's the point, this whole thing has spiralled out of control because of an as of yet unknown quantity of problems with the FE.
We'll never get FE failure rates from Nvidia I wouldn't imagine although I still doubt they were anywhere as near as bad as some would have us believe.
Some youtubers have become a cancer with their blatant agendas and brand loyalty, they like to call out Nvidia and Intel on an almost daily basis but it is high time some of them were called out because they do nothing to help situations like these.
They serve only to spread FUD in pursuit of clicks which ultimately confuses customers and poisons the market with unsubstantiated bullsh!t.
At the end of the day, we should only care about our own 2080Ti's failure rates
Mine is still alive on its second date.
I doubt I'll OC it over the factory OC, unless there's a game I really want to play without some heavy trade-offs. So far, no such cases.
Yah, that's another thing, we have no idea how many of these problems were caused by PEBKAC.
Got mine monday after waiting about 2 months.
By doing what?
a simple guess, static hands.
Static hands, incompetent OCing, bad air flow and the list goes on.
Again, I'm not saying PEBKAC is the only reason there are problems, I'm simply saying we do not have any numbers for the FE and the numbers for non FE cards that we do have lead me to believe that there is no inherent problem with them at all.
What's giving me a pause is the fact that out of hundreds of cards sent to reviewers, only 1 (or 2?) died. Am I getting this right?
I'm not saying its PEKBAC either; no opinion atm frankly.
I guess this settles it
Apparently, many 'DOA' cards are simply a driver related problem which should be easily fixed by a driver update (or switching monitors) according to GN.
Anyone else here noticed a really high pitched static noise coming from the FE cards?
The noise is louder than my fans in my system, only happens on high demanding games (anything pulling around 250W+) and the cards let out a high static squeal.
It's really annoying when my system is dead quiet, I have had cards in the past that would do this, but this pretty damn loud for a watercooled system!
We're in the future, where the hearing aid has bluetooth and just bypasses real hearing, going for streaming mode and directly playing the audio over it, I love it!
It will be coil whine.
This is very hard to prevent 100%, some cards will have it, some louder than others.
It could be the plates of an inductor, or any other ferric material in the construction, vibrating as the current direction changes. The changing current changes the direction of E.M.F on anything ferrous which can cause small elements to change direction very quickly, becoming a tiny loudspeaker at the frequency of the changing current or a harmonic of it.
Sometimes it isnt the card but the PSU.
This can happen with a PSU you hadnt noticed before due to different operating frequencies or higher power use.
Get a long tube and listen down it as you move the end round the PC.
Listen for the source of the whine.
If it is the gfx card and its not bearable, its better to return it rather than attempt a fix (that may not work and will look like a visible modification, voiding the warranty).
Yep, that most definitely sounds like coil whine.
I agree with all of this, I'm happy I'm not the only person that sees this.
I used to enjoy watching YouTube years back as it has some interesting content on there. Now it's a marketing machine with angender pushers.
Most if not all youtube commentators come across like a bunch of dick heads to be quite honest.
