EVGA is losing its value since all this issues happening. At least here in Canada either at Canada Computers they have ton of them in stock or no one even bother and Newegg price went from $2,499 to $2,900 for 3090FTW and no one is grabbing.
EVGA will have hard time recovering from this fiasco


What has this got to do with this to his problem?

For a card that was just “slapped together”, it seems to be doing pretty well setting records in Timespy and Port Royal.



ROFLMAO... another clown. if those people are having to take the cards apart and put them back together with appropriately applied thermal paste etc. or other modifications... I'd say those test results are moot at best, and falsified at worst. Reminds me of the Focus RS fanboys who touted track performance of their cars, after having to spend $4,000 on a rear diff oil-cooler system because the stock rear drive would overheat forcing them off the track. SUMMARY = if the cards require modification out of the box to perform up to spec, they're trash.


Even the Strix cards are being pulled apart and power modded, yet you seem not to care about that? There’s a user further down up in the top 8% on PR with his non modded card. Just relax man and maybe do some more reading? Interesting that there aren’t any MSI cards there either, despite the trio having the ability to pull that power too after a mod. You can’t falsify those results... you realise that right? You seem to want to exclude those results because they just don’t fit your narrative of “terrible card”.

I’m sorry you couldn’t get a 3080 or a focus RS. Seems to have created a bit of a complex for you, but I wish you luck in the future.

Don't take my word for it the proff is in the pudding and it seems there not much pudding there to start with, yes normally evga goes all out with the FTW this time around doesn't seem to be the case.


I’m literally not taking your word for it, I’m taking Timespy and PR results, plus my own experience with the card that I own...

Very happy with mine. I can pass all the 3Dmark at +195 +1150.

Top 2% in Timespy Graphics, top 5% in Time Spy Extreme Graphics , Top 8% in Port Royal. Passed all at +195 +1150 on air with no other cooling help. Going to get the Hybrid Cooler for sure. It all comes down to luck of the draw for all cards how well your chip is binned.

Wish I could get that high. +165 +1200 is about as high as I can get.

EVGA 3000 series cards losing to competitors now. I work with big crowd of guys that use their cards for gaming and professional work and they were desperately waiting for EVGA GPU's, now after seen so many cards death, # of RMAs and cards still dying and good amount of them still have issues here and there 90% of these guys turned to either Asus or MSi, more towards Asus. 
 
At least here in Canada, either Canada Computers or Newegg  there is no interest from people and I can see for days and week the inventory remains the same, ton of them in stock.
 
EVGA will have hard time recovering from this, word spreads quickly and sticks for a long time.
 


Just like many brands, they are sitting because they’re 3090s and are overpriced, not because they’re evga.

Raising the power limit does absolutely nothing if the silicon isn't stable above a certain frequency. The power limit has zero effect on how high the silicon is able to overclock stable.

From what i understand, both Asus TUF and Asus Strix 3080's use 6 MLCC's vs EVGA's 2 MLCC's + 4 SP-CAPS. Asus ones are gonna be better at overclocking because MLCC's work better at higher frequencies, as far as i'm aware.

 My TUF ran at 61c max after an hour stress testing it at 100% usage, with +17% Power Limit, and +200 core, +500 memory. It was stable in everything. 



You had a 3080 that could run Timespy Extreme at +200 core and 61c?  That's an insane golden sample.  Do you have any score links for it?

None of your 2 latest threads are even helping with his problem or even contributing period but just bashing a card you don't even own. By looking at the case he has with 6 fans blowing in and only 3 fans as exhaust as he says but I googled his case he uses and how can he even have fans blowing from the side of the case when it has no fan mounts at all. 3 fans pulling air out isn't even enough with 6 fans blowing in as it isn't taking enough air out of the case to even cool the card period. This is the case he has as per his post he made. This is he said in posting of his fans configuration. [My case is a Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL. I have 3 Noctua P12 120mm fans as bottom in-takes, providing fresh air to the GPU. I have 3 Arctic F12 120mm on the side as an intake to provide the case with fresh air. I have a 360mm radiator up top as an exhaust, to help exhaust air, and a 120mm Noctua P12 as a rear exhaust.]

Just because I disagree with other peoples assessments doesn't mean I'm not contributing; it means I disagree, people on here (and in general) need to learn how to cope with differential opinions. The 3000 series has issues, and most of it related to providing clean power to the GPU. Until consumers start speaking up about these things, they won't be corrected. Furthermore, the two (2) people I responded to were attacking the OP, when he had valid points on the quality of EVGA cards being built. He also referenced the ASUS card that he used, yet conveniently YOU (and others) don't address that fact, not in any meaningful way. So you deflect to case fans, the case itself, and other obfuscation to misdirect the conversation and pitch it back to the OP.
 
You are correct, I do NOT own a 3000 series card, but I've been building computers long enough, and it doesn't take a mental giant to realize THESE CARDS HAVE ISSUES! They were rushed to the marketplace, and consumers are paying the price. If you disagree, so be it, establish a logical response and we can discuss.

Obviously you need someone to connect the dots for your fan-boy-hood. It means that the quality of the cards is sub-par (overpriced), and they're not performing as they should, further informing the OP that he's not the only one who recognizes this, and that it's a systemic issue with EVGA. Or at least that's what I captured from the poor grammar, but maybe English is his second language.
 
Just let me know if you require any more of my assistance in putting the dots together 'for you'...we'll call it my "civic duty".

The number of crib deaths is astonishing.  Normally, we could say something like "But, only the people with problems post. People who are happy with their cards don't say anything.  So, it seems like a majority have issues, but we are only seeing a small sample compared to the total out there.  In actuality, most are working well."
But, that logic doesn't work very well this generation since the total number in circulation is low.  It seems like an astonishing percent are having issues.  We know that the silicon isn't the best quality.  We know that NIVIDIA rushed the release and screwed the AIB partners out of a proper amount of time to refine their product.

Mine is performing as it should in every game that I have well over FPS of what my 2080Ti does and that is beyond your understanding. You see he hasn't even responded to any of the posts made by this thread. Did you actually read his post what his case he is using? Maybe he should show a picture of his setup with his case he mention with fans on the side panel(which there is none) and plus he has 3 fans pulling out air vs 6 fans pushing in air or so he says. You really think that 3 fans would be enough to pull air out as 6 fans are pushing air in?

I personally had 1x 3090FTW died on me 15 min. into use, my nephew had 3x 3090FTW died on him one RMA after another and so many people suggested if 3 cards died on him it must be his hardware, really!  so when he purchased Strix 3090 all of the sudden everything worked perfectly straight from the box.  EVGA cards undoubtedly have issues.......period.
 
How many of the issues are reported we don't know. Yes, you will have many happy users who still have rock solid card, but the ratio is quite high towards more problematic cards ten good, heck you still have people posting e.g. constantly crashing, red light of death with sparks by 8pin connector, sleep issues, black screen and lost signal and all these have nothing to do with either PSU, drivers or PX1, Its solely related the cards themselves.
 
I am well aware that this has not much to do with the org.  post issue, bu, it is branching out to overall cheep build and components choice on EVGA part, which leads to OC potential and it does links in small part to the org. post.

I got my XC3 Ultra last week Wednesday and after a little tweaking on my new PC build (no OC or undervolting at all), I'm 100% happy with it.
 
The un-optimized AC Valhalla looks amazing in 4k.
 
Cold War looks amazing as well.
 
MS Flight 2020....I think it looks good, but I cannot tell because I cannot get the airplane off the ground without crashing it accidentally. When I am able to get the plane off the ground, I cannot make it fly straight and I wind up crashing shortly thereafter. I need a flight stick and they're all either sold out or over priced. I gave up on that game.
 
No complaints other than I'm pissed off at myself for not signing up for a FTW3 notify.
 
I cannot remember why I only signed up for the XC3 Ultra. I want that sweet RGB face plate the FTW3 has---so, I signed up for the Step Up program and now I wait.

Dang man. My 3080 FTW3 Ultra is pretty great. With no OC at all I hit 1980+ easy and doesn't budge. Temps are in the low 60's with fan speed at only 50-60% which is basically 100% quiet to me. If I cared I'm sure I could easily get it to 2100+ with still reasonable temps.

Your first card just won the silicon lottery more then your ftw card.

Silicon lottery is the most important thing.
The best chip on a reference pcb will out do the worst chip on the best and most fancy pcb.

Then power and temps come as second place.
If you can feed enough power and keep a bad chip cool enough it will clock as high as a good chip. It will just take more power to do the same which outputs more heat.

Yeah but I want that RGB and it's only $160 to step up. Can just RMA if it's defective. Willing to gamble that by the time I get the StepUp email, EVGA will have sorted their **** and the FTW3 will be even better than my XC3 Ultra.
 
And I just played Cold War multiplayer and had 53C as my average temp. Could not figure out why....considering the single player was like 70c temps.

If all your overclocks have failed, did you try DDU and installing new ones? When I first moved my card from my older machine to my newly built, newly installed windows machine I forgot to install the Game Ready driver and every OC I attempted failed until I installed the driver.

Sometimes drivers have issues even card to card and a DDU might clear the gremlins

Of course I used DDU in Safe Mode, and then restarted and installed.

Bigger issue right now.
 
My audio keeps dipping out. I use NVIDIA HDMI Audio linked to a Receiver for my speakers. Randomly, it'll cut out. It will "drop" for like 0.5s, then return, up to 1s sometimes. I can watch a video and go 5+ minutes without it happening, or have it just happen every 5-10s. I've looked in Event Viewer, nothing. I googled and saw a few people with similar issues on the latest series of drivers - but I find it odd that on my TUF and 1080 Ti those audio issues don't happen. So it can't be the drivers.
 
I tried re-seating the card, as well as messing with the HDMI cables. Nothing. Regardless of the cards other problems, I might have a busted HDMI port and need to #RMA it. Disappointing. I'm going to try and re-seat it again and clean all the contacts, as well as the contacts of the HDMI port using 99% Iso to ensure a clean connection. Lastly, I'll try another HDMI cable...but I mean this one worked just find with my previous cards, so I struggle to imagine what has happened now.
 
I could've dealt with the high temps and noise by tweaking the curves abit more, but having my audio not working properly is a bummer. I somehow managed to get like 100 EVGA bucks by people using my link to buy stuff, and those Hybrid kits are like 108$...so I figured I might as well give that a shot if the Hybrids turn out well.  I can't use EVGA bucks for the Extended Warranty or RMA process. They don't expire so I could horde them I guess for a future series; but I read they can't be used for new and in demand items anyways.

Because no Receivers use Displayport?  As for a cable, it's a HDMI cable from Monoprice. They're good. Been using them for many, many years.

What is it that you are plugging it into?
 
A TV?
 
Which Monoprice cable?

It's plugged directly into the GPU.

It's a good cable. As I said, with my TUF or 1080 Ti Auros, these issues don't happen.

You are seriously using a $4 cable that's not even up to current specs?
 
I am done here, and out.

...Wow, you're pretty ignorant here.  You don't know about Monoprice, and you think it's "not up to spec", for simple HDMI Audio transmission. I'd be happy if you're done here. As said, it works fine on other 3080's...which use the same exact HDMI ports the EVGA does. Clearly it's just a defective port.
 
 
Lmao. "4$ cable"
 
It's ****ing Monoprice. Jesus, really showing your ignorance. You probably bought those 30$ Insignia cables at BestBuy all the time.
