Hello,
 
I bought a new 3080 evga ftw3 ultra just before christmas and have been experiencing multiple problems going from windows crashes (DPC atchdog violation, WHEA uncorrectable error, IRQL, etc...) to a lot of graphical artefacts in games such as flashing textures/lighting. even browsing chrome I get some blue or red artifacts often on the 2nd screen like in this video around 5 seconds:

Is this something known with a fix or should I RMA this broken card?
 
Thanks.

    If it acts the same way in another pc I would rma it.

    So your recommandation is to get a new pc to test the card in before rmaing?!

    No, test the card in another pc like your friends, or a pc shop near you.

    Download psx1 if you haven't already. Under clock the card and see if the artifacts go away. If they do your card is bad.

    I think this may be a good idea.

    Thanks, unfortunately I cant reproduce it at will 100%, it happens mostly when I have escape from tarkov. I doubt switching computers and trying something else would be easy to troubleshoot this.
    I'll try downclocking to 1710 see if the problems go away as per you guys' suggestions.

    If you're getting artifacts on desktop, it's either bad drivers or a bad card.  I had this issue with my 3080 FTW3 Ultra on one specific set of Beta/HotFix drivers NVidia put out back when I had my 3080, and reverting drivers solved it.
     
    So, first I would try different drivers, if it still occurs, RMA the card because it's le broken.  I'm currently using the 461.09s and have not had any issues with them, so if you're not on those, give them a try.

    Save up to 10% on eVGA.com purchases, use my Associates Code: 47AQQ6KPU2IZNXY
    My system on ModRigs: https://www.modsrigs.com/detail.aspx?BuildID=42686 
    System Specs (Brief Summary):
    i9 9900k @ 5GHz - Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Master - eVGA 1200W P2 - 4x8GB G.Skill TridentZ @ 3600MHz CL16
    eVGA RTX 3090 K|NGP|N :D - Samsung Odyssey G9 49" Super-Ultrawide 240Hz Monitor

    Well I reinstalled windows fresh to see if that would fix it running on 461.09 and it's still occuring :(
     
    I'll try to see if my old pc can support the 3080 to troubleshoot, but I know this build didnt exhibit this bug with my 1070 before getting the 3080 about 2 months ago...
     
    Anything else I should try before RMA?

    Hi Nutronx,
     
    I see another post, where a user was getting mostly red video, with some blue speckles, after some game play.
    They tried everything on the laptop, hardware, drivers, etc.   
    They said the problem went away when they unplugged the monitor, and plugged it back in, along with the video cable.
    Next time it happens, try that, if that fixes it for the moment, it may be your monitor, or cable.

    BTW we are having the same problem as above, and will check the monitor next time.
     
     
    Thanks,
