Some of the AIB's are using cheaper out of spec capacitors.   The current theory is that its causing a problem with some cards when boosting.

It's Nvidia's fault for giving them poor reference designs and not allowing them to test the cards properly without a real driver.

Guys I already payed for a Zotac Trinity 3080 before being worse than FE and POSCAPs and MLCCs things were discovered. How many performance(in %) i'm losing if i stick with Zotac? I mean, it would take months if I try to change to Asus Tuf or another better AIB. 5% is not that bad imo.. so somebody can help me there?

I'd return it if you don't lose money. You'll regret it every day if you don't.

But if I were you I'd just return it and get nothing until all this shit is sorted out. Launch has been a joke and actually am glad for the bots.

I would return it solely on the basis that it's not from EVGA.

 

I hate to dick ride EVGA, but... They have continually shown me with the build quality from their entry level black series, all the way up to the top tier FTW3 models and the fucking fantastic warranty and custom service that they far and away the best brand for graphics cards. Asus is probably a respectable 2nd, and maybe 1st for motherboards.

 

Zotac I thought was good until recently, maybe it's only their amp extreme cards that are good.

 

Gigabyte from my last experience 3 weeks ago is trash imo. Will never buy another gigabyte product. 

 

MSI used to be my go to for graphics cards, 980ti was fantastic. Not sure anymore, no experience. Motherboard however are trash imo, last 4 I've used have been an iasue.

 

My 2 cents.... probably worth much less lol

Don´t panic.

Many reviewer cards and cards used in promotion material have 6 POSCAPs, but I've watched many unboxings and see mostly 4 POSCAPs 2 MLCCs cards.

 

The msi ventus I ordered is one on the cards that is shown to have 6 POSCAPs when looking at pictures of it, but in all the unboxings I've seen it has 4 POSCAPs and 2 groups of MLCCs.

 

So hopefully most people will be getting the better power delivery.

 

Edit:

 

I have now seen an msi ventus with 5 POSCAPs and 1 group of MLCCs.

 

So just the msi ventus has at least 3 different power delivery configurations, its likely other AIB's do also, so I guess it another lottery finding out what power delivery you have.

I wonder if there's a hardware mod that can fix these, so you don't have to gimp the crap out of it with a VBIOS update.


Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in? Yes? Then have you tried downloading more RAM?
