- Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Cards Have A Serious Problem -- They Keep Dying
I just finished reading a surprisingly large quantity of forum posts and complaints -- at least the ones I'm aware of -- from owners of Nvidia's new flagship RTX graphics cards. They all can be condensed into a single broad statement: the RTX 2080 Ti sure seems to be dying on a lot of people, resulting in some seriously unhappy early adopters. Literally hundreds of them. And this card just launched one month ago.

- Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards are reportedly failing in high numbers
Founders Edition cards seem to be the most bork-prone

SO YOU'VE DROPPED NORTH OF A GRAND on Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti; not only do you expect all the graphics, but you also don't expect it to fail.

But rather worryingly, Nvidia's flagship GPU is failing more often than it should, according to Digital Trends, which reported graphical artefacts and instabilities right after installing the graphics card.

And elsewhere, rather high numbers of other RTX 2080 Ti users are flagging that their cards are failing very quickly.

The 'Founders Edition' RTX 2080 Ti appears to be the card that's most likely to fail, with reports that even replacements from manufacturers are also borking.

These cards are also failing despite the fact that they are locked down and don't allow users to carry out manual overclocking or change the voltage, thereby meaning users can go around borking the high-end GPU.

Nvidia told us it's looking into the issue, but seemed to downplay the borkage somewhat: "We are working with users individually, but we are not seeing any broader issues."

It would look like the issue is perhaps a fault in the early production of the RTX 2080 Ti, and something Nvidia should be able to iron out, though it'll probably cost the company a pretty penny.

- Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards are dying in alarming numbers
Concerns are mounting over the failure rate of Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti graphics card, with increasing numbers of reports of dead and dying cards from early adopters. Some display issues involve artifacting and instability immediately after being installed, while others begin to show signs of degradation after a few days, despite a lack of manual overclocking or voltage manipulation.
