is my 3090 a dud

i bought the founders edition because it's much cheaper than the aib cards, it's got really good cooling and i could overclock it to the same as AIB cards overclock. but ive noticed when stock it only boosts to 1700mhz and that seems very low considering in the reviews the card is getting up to 2ghz. should i RMA?

Specs, temps, case,...

 

Basically the 3090 boosts as high as it's temps allows. However this does not mean that it runnin at for example 80c means it's running nice and cool it downclocks itself for safety reasons quickly between 80-85c to prevent overheating. So could just be bad airflow causing it

you can only RMA if the behavior is not as advertised. Are you reaching the clock speeds listed on their webpage as the intentional clocks?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

no but anything above the advertised clock speeds is just a bonus and is not guaranteed in any way by the manufacturer, so a card that adheres strictly to the listed boost clocks is not defective.

I have talked to them about a rma they said the same as you but my card has awful coil whine which they said is a fault and I can get a replacement

Just thinking if I should refund it and get a aib card instead

I have seen people successfully RMA for "coil whine" which technically isn't a defect either (and likely not even the cards fault lol) 

 

In any case, maybe returning the card to the seller would be an option, especially in case it's Amazon?

what if the "reviews" showing much higher clock speeds were sponsored by the manufacturer, would that not be false advertising then? (just in theory but I suppose many "reviews" are in fact sponsored by the manufacturer)

Let me guess...you game at 1080p and the card is sitting there with 50% usage and you wonder why it's not boosting?

check the actual power draw of the card and make sure afterburner isn't limiting it at like 250w, it's happened to others before.

well then why don't you just return it if you have that option? 

 

does it work as "advertised"? probably 

is it a "dud"? well, yeah 

 

what are we supposed to do about it? 

 

Return it, sell it, keep it...

not sure what your prob is with Afterburner but I've tested it "extensively", shows the exact same data as hwinfo, hwmonitor, gpuz, PrecisionX... they're all just reading the sensors, there's not much that you can do wrong there... 

 

I really like Afterburner, it's a bit clunky sure, but it works really well and as long you don't go too deep into settings it's easy to control too... 

 

meanwhile I do like PrecisionX more, but mostly just because it's more stylish, the osd is easier to set up... (and yet, I can't get auto oc to work no matter what, which wasn't an issue with Afterburner at all...)

Except that until mid-August, it misread my 5700XT sensors... That's over 6 months without accurate readings through Afterburner, and 0 seconds of inaccurate readings from HWiNFO. Can you see why I recommend against Afterburner now?

Eh, I see, weird. I haven't noticed anything like that with my nvidia cards tho. And I've never used Afterburner for AMD cards because I heard it doesn't work so great... which I haven't tested personally but I can imagine it being true either way...
