RMA upgrades?

I recently RMA'ed my EVGA 1070 SC2, Only weird thing is that I got a 1070ti FTW2 back in its place. Is this normal or just something they do if they run out of the card you need?

EVGA is well known for having an awesome RMA service. They often send people better stuff for various reasons.

Their policy is probably to send you something of equal value, and since 1070tis are cheaper, it was probably easier for them to send that

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

I was so shocked when I read the box. like that's 25% more cuda cores for free.

what makes a 1070ti ftw cheaper then a SC2. is there some stock differences or something?

My brother bought a GTX 980 Ti SC on EVGA's b-stock for 299$ on sale.

It got to him with huge coil whine despite it worked fine, he still decided to RMA it either ways, they sent him an Evga branded Founders Edition GTX 1080... always buy EVGA.

Stock is one possible explanation. Why don't you contact them and ask? They can't exactly take it back from you.

Probably EVGA can't fix the 1070 SC2 for some reason, but don't have any 1070 SC2 available to ship back. 1070 and above arent produced anymore. Of course they can't give you a slower GPU, so they get one that's one step better instead.
