Have nVidia ever really gotten power delivery right on their GPU's?

Doesn't nVidia just make the chip? Pretty sure it's up to the board partners to properly lay out everything else.

I want to point out that the 1080 FTW was EVGA's fault, not Nvidia's. That was a completely custom PCB that had very little resemblance to the reference card.

 

The 1080 Ti VRM was very solid for the reference card. There's more than one reason why the 1080 Ti is considered the best card Nvidia released in the past 15+ years.

i believe the early 30 series VRM were inadequate for the spikes. Both nvidia and partners share the blame on the new world launch (if a game can fry a card it's not the game).

 

At the very least evga has cheaped out on the 6xx 9xx (fire hazard) and the early 30 series

They’re trying to make a cost effective mass marketable product they can sell to the masses, and the average consumer is for some reason broke as shit and only ever buys things on the price to performance metric which is what is slowly killing consumer variety. But that’s a whole other topic

 

tldr it doesn’t matter what card you buy, because unless it’s a colorful Kudan edition or something it’s going to have the bare minimum to be functional and as cheap as every other option

if you want something that’s higher quality I recommend looking at much higher end options than the reference cards and basic AIB designs.

there’s a reason why the above 1080ti cost three times as much as a regular 1080ti, and it’s not just the obscene cooling solution, it’s the insanely high quality componentry used, the chips chosen, and then the side effect of the increased production costs raising the retail value which less people will be willing to buy, leaving it priced even higher to deal with low demand.

Thats why all the regular cards suck, you want something that’s actually good, it’s going to cost way more than the cheaper options.
