PX1 is working very well for me. If you also fail then it could be the software needs to be updated to support the new rtx series. I just want to make sure it's not faulty hardware. NDoss thank you the link is www. Running it with the Titan X Pascal also in my system it runs all the way thru fine. Jealous of the cards in his thread, pretty sure I lost the silicon lottery.
Seems like my FTW3 has almost no headroom. I've never seen my core go above 69C, memory never above 80C. The Crunchinator. The third generation of our Compute Benchmark is now finally feature complete. This time we were able to trim the whole core and especially the bit integer calculations.These issues range from artifacting to the cards completely failing to work. One GeForce forum user writes that out of the three RTX Ti cards they bought, two of them—both founders editions—have died after 2 — 3 weeks of use, which they say is due to progressive degradation of GDDR6 memory.
There are more reports of these problems on Redditincluding claims of blue screens of death and constant crashes. But the most worrying element for Nvidia could be that some users who sent back their GPUs for an RMA found that the replacements were also faulty. Most reports involve Founders Edition cards, though there are some mentions of third-party variants also failing.
According to a number of online reports, many of these expensive pieces of hardware are already failing. Load Comments User Comments: 32 Got something to say? Post a comment. Recently commented stories Jump to forum mode.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Review: Memories of the Future

Since Nvidia is the only one to sell its own Founders Edition cards, that leaves us at a relative dead end for learning more about those cards in particular. When it comes to the AIB partner cards, though, we were more successful. Average return rate is about 3. The two highest selling cards Overclockers UK has had in the past couple of years display similar number, he told us.
They averaged a 3. Those numbers suggest that the AIB partner Ti cards are as reliable if not slightly more so than most graphics cards. However, those numbers are skewed slightly favorably due to the relative youth of the GPUs. We also received tips from several GPU manufacturers on the condition of anonymity, that they had experienced no issues with new cards.
One well established, UK-based system builder told us that they had seen zero failures among the Ti-equipped systems. We also received tips from several GPU manufacturers on the condition of anonymity, that they had experienced no issues with new cards, Ti or otherwise.
Well, with no numbers from Nvidia when it comes to the Founders Edition cards, all we can do is look to anecdotal evidence. That said, based on the results of our own investigation and the numbers of complaints on various social platforms, it would at least suggest that of the cards that are failing, the Ti Founders Editions are the most likely of all Turing GPUs to experience these problems.
So, why is that?
Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti failure rates not at unusual levels according to UK retailers
Several investigations have been launched by multiple organizations to try to find out. TomsHardware Germany performed some thermal testing of a Ti reference card to see if the memory was overheating.My RTX 2080 ti FE died! Did Nvidia take care of it?
Although some chips did reach around 85 degrees Celsius, that is within the safe operating temperature of the Micron GDDR6 packages. However, it did report that Nvidia uses different thermal pads from multiple manufacturers with its cards. That could mean that some cards have slightly different thermal pads, which in theory, could lead to less-than-ideal contact between memory chips and coolers. Blue screens of death and crash to desktop errors appear to be caused by a combination of problems with high refresh rate monitors, G-Sync, and particular games.
It would be remiss of us not to point out that with the lack of hard numbers on card failure rates it is entirely possible that the ones being reported are not hugely substantial. That said, there are clearly some problems cropping up with RTX cards and of those cards, the most problematic are Tis.
And of the Tis, the most problematic are the Founders Edition cards.The last two months have been a period of tit-for-tat in the PC video card industry. Performance is going up while last-minute maneuvering has brought prices slightly down, all the while the two major players in the GPU space look to solidify their product lineups and secure their competitive edge against their competition.
Unsurprisingly then, the vanilla RTX is on its way out. This helps with binning, of course, but it also gave NVIDIA some breathing room to bump up their performance should they ever need to. Now, with the RTX Super, they are doing just that. The notable exception here will be on the render backend side of things; RTX already shipped with all 64 ROPs enabled — as well as the associated L2 cache — so there are no hardware improvements here.
Instead, pushing the card even farther are higher clockspeeds, coupled with a very generous W TDP. Meanwhile, unlike enabling more SMs, this benefits every facet of the video card, so front-end and back-end performance is all getting faster.
As a result, the card gets to run at full throttle a lot more than the originalor for that matter the Ti or the Super. Since the first GDDR6-equipped video cards launched a year ago, every card has shipped with 14Gbps or lower memory. So for curious overclockers, there is a bit more memory headroom to play with here, with the usual warnings about overclocking.
It also means that overclocking is going to be a bit more one-dimensional, with GPU clockspeeds being the biggest factor by a significant degree. These are the same TU GPUs using memory validated to run on the same PCBs, so board partners can quickly tap their existing designs to bring new cards to market.
Their reference card is still going to be sold under the Founders Edition branding, however it should perform identically to any other reference-clocked cards. As part of their overall product stack realignment, NVIDIA is looking to increase the value of their cards without actually cutting prices, so this is another way to achieve that.

That's not letting the public know what was wrong with the cards and what steps they are taking to improve quality.
People want to know so that they can feel confident in purchasing NVIDIA products and know that it will not start a literal fire. MacLeod Supreme [H]ardness. Joined Jul 28, Messages 7,Join us now!

A number of RTX 2080 Ti owners say the cards are failing
I bought the First GPU threw a third party seller and have all documentation as well as Tech Support calls with the last failure, I returned the first card back to seller on Amazon and got a full refund and said to myself Now last night Can I just get a card that works from you guys and we can move on from this?
I disagree. If someone from EVGA is reading this These problems cant be a mystery. There is speculations on the failures on other sites.
This looks like worst nvidia line ever.
Nvidia addresses failing GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards
The amount of failures is unbelievable. I think the VRM is getting too hot causing this issue. The VRAM has thermal pads connecting them to the thermal plate but there is no thermal padding connecting the thermal plate in that spot to the heatsink.
My VRAM is hitting over 90c in a very well ventilated case. It's already locked up with artifacts on me once. I don't see this card lasting long. I'll be looking elsewhere for my next GPU. Online the theory is that its faulty Micron Memory and that is what is in my card.
My last card was even artifact'ing at Windows load up screens and not even exclusively to gaming. My temps are even pretty stable and under 60c most of the time without a heavyload.That guidance has changed, thanks to additional problem analysis. This certainly does appear to be the case. Supposedly cards coming back from Nvidia have Samsung memory instead of Micron.
Given that at least one of the failed cards literally burst into flames, we recommend gamers who have purchased an RTX Ti keep a careful eye on their systems. The good news, if you want to call it that, is that this failure appears to happen relatively quickly. There were initially reports that some people were on their second failed RTX Tibut now that Nvidia has presumably identified the problem it can avoid that happening in the future as well.
What Nvidia needs to do now, if at all possible, is release information that will help gamers identify if they have a defective GPU before it fails, in order to request replacements as quickly as possible and avoid potential system damage.
