You have not been able to get the new and talked about video cards from NVIDIA In the first launch wave? Maybe you actually came out cheap
Cheap capacitors, immature drivers or lack of communication between NVIDIA To its partners - no one still knows the exact reason for this, but it seems that an increasing amount of documented complaints about unforeseen technical glitches in the cards can not be ignored.GeForce RTX 3080 (and also in the modelsRTX 3090) The new ones, which are manifested in sudden collapses, the appearance of visual artifacts and other characteristics that indicate instability in the operation of these advanced and prestigious models.
It is difficult to estimate the extent of these unforeseen glitches when we do not know how many RTX 3080 cards have been offered for sale around the globe so far, but Official acknowledgments from all major manufacturers in the field In fact, the existence of the problem is a good indication that these are not some strange and exclusive cases, but something more extensive and significant that is impossible to sweep under the rug.
The leading estimates at the moment indicate that the choice of capacitors that are not of high quality and stable enough in accordance with the minimum threshold requirement of NVIDIA (But contrary to its recommendation), combined with the GPU Boost system that purports to provide as high operating frequencies as possible, can create unexpected failure points - which led, among other things, to the creation of "blacklists" on the network of models using suspicious capacitor arrays, to their displeasure Of the manufacturers themselves who are in no hurry to put the blame on the engineering choices that went through their approval and verification processes and also of the people NVIDIA themselves.
However, some reports of crashes even on Ampere cards that include higher quality and more advanced capacitor arrays may indicate that the problem is not limited to selecting these components - it is possible that the maximum GPU Boost frequencies the cards try to reach may cause failures in almost every model. Appropriate, and it is possible that the source of the problem lies in a different material or software area. The bottom line is thatNVIDIA And the manufacturers who supply most of the new generation cards to stores will need to provide explanations and actions to please the early efforts that paid the best for their glittering hardware, as well as restore the trust of many thousands who stand in line (digital) for future purchase. The RDNA 2 fromAMD.
At best, it seems that the problem can be solved by using updated drivers that will change the acceleration frequencies for the different cards. Another option is firmware updates from card makers that will try to address issues - and the most problematic option is certain models that will require a hardware update (or in other words - RMA) in order to get back to the beneficiary. It is worth noting that all the GPU Boost frequencies to which the cards can reach from home NVIDIA When they are at their best they do not constitute a rigid commitment on the part of the company, with the maximum frequency that will define a card as normal is the standard Boost frequency which may be lower than 200MHz and higher than the observed real-time analysis software - so resolving crashes may reduce performance for consumers so.
We still do not know how this story will end, but there is no doubt that it is a worthy reminder that in the world of hardware it is not always good to be in front of everyone.

updating: A new driver from version 456.55 has been distributed on the network, operation Changes behind the scenes - and solves most of the crashes in most cases and for most models it seems, without steeping in the specific types of capacitors that are hidden behind the coreAmpere. Happily, these adjustments did not require any significant performance compromise in exchange for stability, with initial direct comparisons between the new driver and the previous one showing almost identical capabilities with differences amounting to reasonable statistical errors.
The acceleration potential for some models may have been reduced to ensure the new stability, but in general - it seems that inNVIDIA Managed to solve the problem that drove hardware enthusiasts crazy quickly and efficiently with minimal harm to those who managed to invest their money and get the new hardware ahead of everyone else. We will keep our fingers crossed that from now on everything will work as planned, without any other unwanted and unpleasant surprises.
