Some are saying that lots of 2080 Ti's are dying. Some are finding that even the cards supplied after an RMA are dying too.

I haven't experienced any issues with both my 2080Ti … other than they seem to run very poorly single GPU in Vulkan based apps/games (guess that's a driver issue).

But for every "world is ending" thread about 2080Ti there are equal or more "world is not ending" thread for 2080Ti and nVidia's response here.

But I believe this thread has come up before, so this isn't new news.

Cheers, Rob.

So it has come up before. Didn't see that thread down there. Feel free to obliterate this topic.

I had a Zotac 2080TI that was DOA. Sent it back and bought another one through a different seller.

Lets hope it doesn't turn into a major issue Scott.

And as a result of poor sales and a glut of unsold Pascal boards

The article seems to suggest the decline in cryptocurrency leaving too many Pascal cards in inventory, Bitcoin dropped 10%+ in a day (yesterday) at an already low and now even lower price at 5552 and seems to be on course for yet another collapse from it's initial collapse (less than a year ago it was 17549).

As far as dead 2080Ti, a friend just reported to me one of his died also ... personally I think it's a heating problem, these cards on stock air coolers were running 93-100C on my PC that has a very good case for cooling.  Like I said earlier, I've stopped using the cards until I get my EK waterblocks installed on them.

Cheers, Rob.

Mine is running P3D @ 50C, and Time Spy benchmark @ 60C max.
Maybe EVGA has a better stock cooling solution although quite noisy.

Pretty close to the same temp here in P3D.  The fans aren't unusually loud, though.  I set a fan curve in Precision X1 that's flat at 40% fan speed until 30 deg C, then a linear ramp-up to 100% at 75 deg C.  If I force myself to listen for them, I can hear them on the rare occasions when they're above ~75% or so, but almost always the fan noise is easily overcome by the engine/wind noise from my sound system.

Nivida have apparently just admitted that yes, they had misjudged the crypto mining thing and that yes, 2080 Ti cards are dying.

 That 3.5% is just for AIB's I believe. And that link was from 11 days ago.

It's a vague statement that addresses that yes, there are issues with some RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition boards. But the statement doesn't suggest what the specific issue is, nor how many cards are affected.

Nvidia hasn't said what percentage of RTX 2080 Ti FE cards are affected, either, so it's unclear whether buyers should steer clear for now

Time will tell I guess.
