Video card (1080 ftw) glitch or software glitch (image)?

Recommended Posts

I ran into this the other day.. i booted up a test flight and had this in the image:

 

1080glitch.jpg

 

I should have just closed it down and verified if it was present in all of windows 10, but i didnt.. i just killed p3d and reopened it, second run it was fine.

 

I think given that i was able to screen shot this, it is probably NOT video card hardware related?

 

Throwing this out there in case anyone else has seen it.

 

Thanks

Oops..edit : (no scan lines with LCD).

But it does look that way.

By coincidence, I saw this exact same thing yesterday.  I had just upsized the cursor arrow, to help my failing eyesight :sad:

 

So I put the arrow back to its original size (smallest of three) and the distortion disappeared.

 

I had a job finding the size adjustment, and wonder if what I found is the "floating" (or a name like that) cursor, which has caused problems in the past.

I can confirm this happens with my 1080 FE on my Test PC also ... not very often, has happened about 3 times.  Glad to see it's not just me.

 

Cheers, Rob.

 

EDIT: It's isolated to just my 1080 FE, tested with 970 and Titan X in my test PC and all good.

Ive had this happen once on my PNY 1080 FE

I've got a FE.

 

Never seen something like that, at least til far.

If drivers are up-to-date, I'd also have a look to the connection (healthy cable?) and get rid of any OC.

Geez...

 

Happy flying,

I have had it happen once only on my ASUS FE GTX1080.

 

I was trying the highest SGSS and I thought it was because it ran the card too hot. It went over 87 degrees.

 

At my normal setting, sits about 54 and never seen it since!

Ehm...mine runs at 80°C even with no SGSS with unlimited fps 2560x1440 @144Hz/Gsync, 65-70°C with 30 fps lock.

Quite a difference compared to your readings: am I missing something (maybe W cooling  :Nail Biting:) ?

One can also cap the GPU with a temperature limit. I use EVGA Precision X to do this. I cap the GPU at 70 degrees Celsius and everything is fine.

My Asus Strix 1080 does this on one in ten startups, while not as severe as your picture, maybe one distorted line for a second, it has done this with the last four NVIDIA drivers. Not a heat problem as the card, especially with weather cooling down in Calif. idles around 32c and @ 100% load 70c.

Not cables either.

Overclocking glitch maybe? Moderate overclock under 2000MHz.

You have got to love computers...

 

YMMV has to be THE motto!

 

I am flying the FSLabs A320-X right now and my GTX1080 is 53C.

 

That is using 4x SGSS, 4/8 (8xCSAA), FSX Gold, DX10 Fixer, 30FPS internal locked with 1/2 VSync on a 60hz 27' Dell Monitor.

 

FPS are 29.5 to 30, flying over FTX AUS SP4, with an i7-6700K OC 4.6ghz.

 

It was this airplane at 32x 8/24 8x SGSS that sent the temp up to 87C and I was still at the Gate! (Auscene YPAD Gate 25)...

 

I don't use water cooled, it is a stock day 1 founders addition 1080. But in my computer, it is very sparse grid sensitive. If I run at 2x SGSS, it does not even reach 40C.

 

So I settled on 4x SGSS with 4/8 in the Fixer.

 

I look forward to the BBQ!

 

Regards,

I swear the issue that that they idle the cards at 60c to keep the fans from being loud but I'd rather have a loud fan than a burnt up gpu,if our CPUS idle'd at 60c we'd all be really upset. I set a custom fan curve so that at 60c the fan goes to 100 percent and turns on at 30c,rarely does my card hit 60c now,and I cant even hear the fan over my h110

Thanks for the replies everyone.. i guess what i thought might have been an isolated "bad card" might just be temp or driver related.. its only happened once here too, but my temps were reaching 83ish on average (throttling at the 82 or 83 i guess).. this was on my old hardware i7-4930k at 4.4ghz noctua air cooled with the 15 series.. with the ftw evga 1080 (not overclocked on the video btw)..

 

Now i have just set up and very very briefly tested my new rig.. i7-6700k with the 1080.. but at stock levels.. using the h100i v2 as well.. i have it installed on the top portion of the v51 thermaltake in intake mode per the instructions.. i think the temps are good so far, but i have yet to overclock it..

 

Anyways.. in my brief fsmark07 old school test, the gpu now peaked at 67C, not 83, so clearly either the rig is doing better or the water cooling is helping.. ill keep an eye out for this anomaly and try to not the conditions that brought it on.

If it happens often, you have a problem. Otherwise it is just a glitch that could be the hardware, temps, software or anything else you can think of. I've seen it happen when the card is outputting a resolution the monitor cannot handle, etc.

Apologise for being OT here, but concerning my high temp readings I applied a custom fan profile (1:1) to my GTX 1080 with ASUS GPU Tweak 2, and the GPU temp dropped to 72 celsius in a PMDG flight. Little more noise from the fan but hey, -10 degrees.

Guess at this point that the default fan curve is way too conservative in terms of noise reduction.

 

The bbq at my place is canceled then. :-()

 

Happy flying !

Happened again with mine.. so far, only in two situations, though they are mostly what i'm testing..

 

This time again, paused screen on the fsxmark07 test (full ftx + gex + utx + rex).. i had the screen maximized over all 3 24" screens making it 5760x1080 (not surround mode).. i hit alt enter when it happened, checked the temps in gpuz.. it read 63C/ 1% gpu usage.. though i think p3d had froze after tabbing out or maybe at the moment of the glitch.

 

I also noticed a quick flash of similar pixels/distortion when using the oculus rift.. this has happened on two systems now.. my old 4930k build and now on the 6700k.. i did not get distortion flashes when using rift with the 980ti.. 

 

So at this point, even though others have reported this.. im thinking its a bad card and might need to return it and get another.. not sure if i should still get the same exact model or not though.. i guess this isnt limited to the evga 1080 ftw (as others here reported it on different card models/brands)

Are you running unlimited with VSync off? I have noticed a tendency for my two 980ti's to throw up the occasional artifact (not what you are seeing) in P3D while under heavy load and both cards are peaking at 100% usage. The solution for me is to employ VSync and that reduces usage of both cards to around 90% max. with no displayed artefacts. Temps don't seem to be the issue as my cards run around 70C Max.

interesting, yea vsync off for vr, but as of now in tuning things I have it off in 2D with unlimitted.. I'll have to try that at least on 2D

 

I also wonder if this glitch shows up in other Sims or games? I have done limited other games and Sims but haven't seen it, so maybe it's not the card just p3d pushing too hard

. i tried limiting the fps to 30.. hoping this would help with the glitches i saw in the goggles and on screen per some suggestions.. 

 

No help at all, still glitching with pixels all over the place in flashes at times.. checked gpu utilization both unlimited and with 30 set, wasnt at 99 for some reason like before, either way in my tests.

 

*One big thing, i saw the clock speed on the gpu wasnt going above 1733 or whatever the lower upper limit is.. the overclock SC value of around 2000 wasnt happening with p3d, it happens with 3dmark though.. 

 

I'm going to be swapping this 1080 ftw evga for the 1080 ftw hybrid water cooler version when it comes out, not sure what the eta is on that, either way i'll swap it for a replacement just to be safe since i'm within the window of change here.

I tried updating to the newest nvidia driver to see if the glitching, particularly in the goggles would stop.. they didnt.

 

Tomorrow the 1080 ftw hybrid water cooled arrives.. i will be testing to see how it behaves.

My card did it again last night. Second time since I got it 8 weeks ago. Using the latest Nvida drivers 372.90.   If I change from VC to Spot view then back if fixes it.

Same issue here. GTX 1080 Palit Gamerock Premium (factory overclocked). Windows 10 AU x64. Current drivers 372.90.

I don't think the problem with overheating. I have a custom fan control curve so temperature don't exceed 72-75C.

In other games with extremely high GPU workload (DeusEx MD on 4K resolution, for example) the problem is not seen so far.

I also noted that with previous driver the problem appeared more often.
