Gigabyte rtx 3080 gaming oc missing memory chip ??!?

Today my mate from pc part shop asked to check my 3080, he sent me photo from clients gigabyte 3080 gaming oc and i have this model too. CHECK PHOTO

it's bottom of the card, i think there should be memory chip, i checked my card and i see exactly the same. Any explanation ?

Normal.

Technical reason why it is done.

No no, if you check every dissasembly of this card, there should be memory chip there 100% but it's missing

It's fine, all 3080s are configured like that. They tend to be missing certain memory chips. If it works and shows up as 10gb then you should be fine.

Please quote or tag me @Void Master,so i can see your reply.

 

Everyone was a noob at the beginning, don't be discouraged by toxic trolls even if u lose 15 times in a row. Keep training and pushing yourself further and further, so u can show those sorry lots how it's done !

Be a supportive player, and make sure to reflect a good image of the game community you are a part of. 

Don't kick a player unless they willingly want to ruin your experience.

Was this bought right away at launch? Maybe they rushed the production... Who knows.? Are there any performance drawbacks?

3080 GPUs come with 10GB memory, with that empty slot filled you will get 12GB (and a bit more bus width, increasing bandwidth). RTX 3090 has further doubled that (with memory chips on both sides of the PCB) to 24GB.

i have it for 3 months, main issue poor thermal pads, and gigabyte doesnt allow to change it yourself

Each GDDR6 module is 16Gb or 2GB in capacity.

Main problem is , that it's odd that there is no memory module in that spot, if you check gigabyte gaming oc dissasembly in each video you will see that only upper 1 out of 3 banks are populated, and bottom one should be populated aswell, but it's not

Which one being empty doesnt matter as far as the GPU's concerned. I'm not sure if Nvidia forces it to be done in a certain way but if Nvidia didn't, it's up to the board partner to decide how to fit their design

There are different NVidia SKUs. Each one is missing the memory in a different position. Gigabyte was probably just to lazy to adjust the production line so they always place the thermalpad there even through it is useless.

Then your card should have 2 chips on the top, to reach the required capacity/bus width. Don't worry, if it works normally. Memory chip locations can change between revision and revision, and considering the current situation, and the stress and demand on production of these gpus, things might be "changed without notice".

i would think the spot changes depending on which part of the die is disabled

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

It can still be a different revision of the same model. 10 GB VRAM is 10 GB VRAM. If you really want to be paranoid check e.g. the V20057 with your card and any other reference serial number you can find, but it might even be undocumented as it really doesn't matter to a consumer as long as there is 10 GB of working VRAM.

Gigabyte is known for being the anti-neat freak, with so many revisions in their lineup sharing the same name. Dont worry.

Yes, but do you understand that if your card reads as 10G there is no memory chip "missing"?

 

You're repeating the same thing without telling us what your card actually reads (unless i missed it)

 

Can you post a screen shot of the first page when you open GPUZ?  That should clearly show if something is "missing" or not.

Makes sense.
