Thanks guys. Sent a message to them, should hear back by Monday morning.
At the rate these seem to be failing, and who knows how long even the ones that are working now are going to last, if it were me, I'd be asking for a refund and skip the 2*** series of cards altogether.
I do not disagree.
I hope it gets sorted for you mate. I've been through that progress with OCUK in the last few weeks and they were really good. I just hope it doesn't happen to my new card.
Yes it's a case of constantly treading on eggshells I think they should be removed from sale clearly not fit for purpose nor reliable
That's why I refunded my 2080 Ti, I don't want to deal with these serious issues and I don't believe Nvidia are telling the truth about the failure rate.
Do we actually have any statistics on the number of failures? Or are failures being highlighted because this is the flagship card?
That’s locked away in Jensen’s leather jacket lol.
Sorry to hear about your cards, hope all goes well with the RMAs.
I count 64 owners in the owners thread and 10 people here with faults (one twice), however, 5 or 6 are listed in this thread but not the other, so that's roughly a 1/7 failure rate.
i have been trawling forums of all the manufacturers and the amount of people with the same issue is staggering. There is clearly something very wrong with the rtx cards and it appears to be a matter of when it will break not if. I will give a second one a go with my first rma and i have every confidence it will do the same.
I've heard it's the Micron memory degrading quickly after purchase. Apparently you can check for it by downclocking the memory and seeing if it runs OK again. Not all RTX use micron. Some use samsung which don't appear to be affected.
I can't confirm the above myself but a youtube video popped up in my recommendation about is yesterday.
I recommend you play space invaders in 4k, you're half way there already
While 1 in 7 seem to be failing saying when not if is going far too far.
Just a quick update on mine and all I can say its I have been very impressed with EVGA's service.
Here is a quick timeline break down, it does include a weekend though:
07/02/19 - Contacted EVGA
07/02/19 - RMA Raised
09/02/19 - RMA Approved
12/02/19 - Card Shipped
14/02/19 - Card Received
EDIT: The new FTW3 card also runs Samsung memory.
EVGA"s service certainly seems to sell itself.
If buying new (chances getting slimmer with every new overpriced release) EVGA would be my top consideration.
I wonder if they will ever release a console...
replacement zotac rtx 2080ti amp came today super fast turnaround by ocuk- all ok so far touch wood been playing new far cry for about 6 hours in 4k ultra no issues yet. Fingers crossed lol
The retailer confirmed my 2080TI Card was knackered and been returned to ASUS for repairs.
Anyone any idea how long the process takes?
It cant do the resale value of RTX cards any good unless the warranty is transferable you might end up with a duff card. the rate these cards are failing over the net if I had one I would be hammering it to death to see if its a good or bad one.
With Asus you've done well to get that far! Generally it takes about 30 days in total but they might have got better over the last couple of years.
