NVIDIA, via a blog post on its forums, has confirmed widespread reports of failures affecting their flagship RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. The issues, which resulted in “crashes, black screens, blue screen of death issues, artifacts and cards that fail to work entirely,” 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.
