Don't worry about it% from statistics I have read.

 

They fail so little that it isn't worth your time to choose a card based on failure rates.

this.

Probs about the same. Dont worry about failure rates. Only worry about it if it happens to you!

I think the better question isn't amd vs nvidia RMA's, but card manufactures of GPU's.

  1. Lets see I have MSI hd7870 rma'd twice(3year warranty) arrived from newegg had artifacts RMA'd, replacement arived from MSI they had the fans locked at 100%-seriously sounded like a BOEing 747 (argued with the moron & RMA'd again, didn't pay shipping this time) 3rd card arrived & works like a wet-dream :wub:  for the past year. OC's 20% stable but had to backoff a little do to temps & noise (I like peace & quiet).
  2. XFX hd 5570 rma'd for a broken fan blade (no warranty) XFX gave me a new gpu & payed for shipping, was very pleased. :)
  3. EVGA 7900 GT DOA, went back up to Fry's electronics same day for a replacement :D

 

I ve only had 2 Hdd (160gb & 40gbs old mechanical 7200rpm) fail on me, 3 Gpu's, 1 mobo, 1 PSU, 1 monitor, 7 mice, 4 keyboards. That's about it covering 7 desktops & 2 laptops threw 25 years.

I had a gigabyte gtx760 fail on me after less than a week.

But just RMA'd and got a new one.

Also, if they fail within the first 2 years you can just rma, if they fail later you need a replacement anyways :P and afaik they either fail really quickly or almost never. My 8600gts is still going stronk ;)

How is this AMD vs Nvidia? This is a common error on most peoples part >.< Unless cards are COMPLETELY REFERENCE which is rare cause most reference people buy aren't directly from manufacturer (amd or nvidia) and go through a few OEMS which do slight modifications even to reference cards like new thermal paste and bios...  95% of the time blame the card producer like ASUS GIGABYTE EVGA PNY ect...

TSMC produces chips for both companies so failure rate should be equal on a chip level (very low percentage) its what happens after that, so quality of components used on the card etc.
