  1. So I discovered an interesting thing regarding the recent RTX 3080 Capacitor fiasco and the ASUS TUF model.

    In the original investigation regarding the various capacitor configurations, the author noted that the ASUS TUF one (which I coincidentally ordered) won't have issues because it has six MLCC groups that look like this:

    But, most retailers have the pictures of the card that have regular capacitors, like the picture here (taken from Newegg):
    14-126-452-V03.jpg

    Which clearly shows 6 regular, large capacitors. This is the same for retailers in my country.

    Now ASUS on their website has a picture, that's already refreshed with the MLCCs:
    HIDLMeW.jpg


    Which means they caught the problem early, and actually changed those capacitors on their GPUs after they sent out GPU pictures to their distribution chain.

    I got lucky with my choice, because there shouldn't be an issue with the TUF card because of that. But I feel for people who ordered worse models or already received them and have those crashes.

      Hang on, let me double check. I thought it was jay's initial cap video, but now I remember that I also watched buildziod's.

      i think the image is a 3d render of the card, it's not a real product (IMO) but i do think you're right ASUS caught it early and fixed it and so did MSI:

      Good that some AIBs managed to catch it before actually selling those cards, as even reviewers got the updated version.

      MSI seems to be correcting the errors as well, however the model that HW Unboxed got for review was the older one
