NVIDIA Confirms Issues with Early Versions of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti @ TechPowerUp

Published: | Posted By:

The lines between clickbait and actual news have become blurred enough that it is often difficult to tell what the truth actually is.  In the November mainshow for the Hardware Asylum Podcast we take a jaded look at clickbait and how powerful it can be.

As annoying as it is, I cannot argue at how well it works and sometimes which I could stoop to that level.

It would seem that NVIDIA has finally admitted that there are issues with the RTX 2080 Ti, which is something we addressed in our podcast, and as we predicted it really was a minor issue in the grand scheme that exploded in the hardware circles.

The issues started cropping up throughout tech forums, before reaching a critical mass that warranted coverage - just in case this was exactly what it seemed, ie, a production issue.

It seems this was just so, and that the problem was luckily limited to some early manufacturing issues or QA controls. As NVIDIA themselves put it, "Limited test escapes from early boards caused the issues some customers have experienced with RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition." The company then says that they stand ready to help customers who are experiencing problems - but nothing else was to be expected, really.

As you can imagine dropping 1200 bux on something will get people rather excited when the stuff don't work.
