Good day folks,
I've had this card installed in my system for about 3-4 weeks now and on Sat Oct 31st, all of sudden, both screens turned black with ''No display port signal'' appearing on the screen before they shut down.
I've removed the DP from the GPU then from the Powerbar, then waited few minutes and reinstalled wverything and restarted the system.
It kept going. The black screens appeared randomly (about 2 times after the 1st) they all of suddent a red LED loght appeared on the GPU and doesn't work anymore. 


The GPU is well sit on the PCIe and connectors are all properly plugged in, individually (no split cables).
Neved had a GPU glitch or problem since then, Bios and Drivers updated frequently.
 
Can anybody help ??

System specification:
Mobo: Asus Strix B550-F Gaming
CPU: Ryzen 7 3800XT
RAM: G.Skill Neo 3600mhz CL16 4x8G
PSU: Evga Supernova 750W Gold
AIO: Kraken Z73

    The only thing left to do is try it in another computer. If it works its not the card or try another gpu on yours and if it works the 3080 is dead. Such is the price of early adoption on these things unfortunately. My first 3080 from msi gaming x trio that i stood in line for on release day and ended up backordering came in on the 24th of sept. It was DOA and would always blue/black screen on driver installation. Store tested and confirmed same issue the next day. Refunded and have been in queue for a ftw3 ever since.

    Just tried my old Evga 2070s black edition on the system and its running.

    My question now is, how RMAs work with EVGA, relatively with the queue of existing Orders in B.O. versus the RMA ?
    Would it be fast or do I fall in the same queue as those waiting to receive their purchased copy?
    I went with evga knowing the quality of their after sale service, but never had to use it until now.

    I would imagine theyd prioritize you. Theyre not going to make you wait from what I imagine. Best thing to do is give them a call and theyll start the rma process and explain how it works. Sorry about the issue. For those of us with dead cards it sucks that we waited this long and then it breaks on us. Ive learned my lesson with gpu releases to not buy them on launch again. I foolishly sold my 2080 thinking id have a working 3080 a few weeks after release if i ordered in store.

    Hopefully I won’t have to wait in regular queue as I already did before.
    Was using a 2080s XC Ultra (2070s black is now in my GFs Rig)
    The 2080s was smooth and should have kept it instead of selling it to a friend.
    If
    Only I knew all the troubles the new generation would have, I would have waited but my pre-order was already in and paid for on the 14th of September and only on the 16-17th we started to hear about all those concerns.
    Quite disappointing about the whole situation.

    Exact same issue, same card.  Never installed 450w Bios.  New Corsair 750w PSU.

    Same thing happened to me last Thursday, no video out at all, swapped the card to another box same issue, put the old 2080 TI in and she's up and running again, waiting for them to cross ship my advanced RMA.

    I had to RMA mine, I quickly bought the advanced RMA and then did it so the new one was overnighted, happened on a Thursday and overall it was a one week turn around.

    I had the same issue as you and had to RMA. It's actually pretty fast. I got a brand new card shipped out to me within 3 days of them receiving my dead one.

    Had to go with the RMA.
    Waiting on them to cross-ship it. Says 1-3 days to ship. I’m at the 3rd says and still no advancement.

    I didn't do cross-ship so they had to receive my dead card. Once they received it it took 3 days for them to ship me a new one.. Got a ups email with tracking info on the 3rd day

    Evga 750w psu won't work for 3080 ftw3. Power draw near the PSU limit (750W) will significantly decrease the power delivery quality, which could ultimately damage your GPU.
     
    I bet if you continue to use your 750W PSU you're gonna file another RMA soon.

    All, I just got mine 3080 FTW3 Ultra as well and installed with 850W power.  I used to set it on OC mode and just playing games mostly.  The black screen is happening to my rig just 2 days ago, I thought it was the driver so I clean install to the latest NVIDIA driver 457.30 that just recently released and also use normal mode.  But I continue to have this problem tonight for numerous time, and this seems to happen to many users, now I am reluntant to just get another one that might continue to have this issue.  Also I also having RTX Voice when this problem starting to occurs as well.  I am requesting for a refund from the site but I don't know where to start.  I will give the local toll a call tomorrow and see what happen.

    I'm actually concern that this it is a ticking time bomb and can fail at any time. Look! 3 weeks and pop, it’s so unstable. I truly hope that users who already have the cards for a month or so continue on using without issue, but it seems like the trend is there.

    I had this issue actually Yesterday.. i would get a black screen while gaming and my fans would start going at 100%
    if you are still experiencing a Black screen...
    attempt to connect your display through you mobo
    then Uninstall the nvidia Drivers
    uninstall the GPU from the "Device Manager" and have windows automatically recognized it.
    Restart your PC
    then reinstall the latest NVidia drivers. 
    this some how worked for me. and i have not experienced a black screen since. keeping my fingers crossed

    Not to be a PSU-racist, but it sounds to me like all these 750W PSUs are causing whatever possible issue these batches of 3080s have to become a problem real fast.
    Only way to know that isn't the issue for sure would be to RMA the card for a new one, and upgrade your power supply.
     
    Boggles my brain why people spend $700+ on a GPU but they won't fork out for a high end PSU, heaven forbid it be a little inefficient to run a 850-1200W unit on a system that only pulls 700W most of the time... that most of the time is the problem.

    I had a brief black screen last night while just watching youtube. No warning, no fans spinning up, the screen went black for maybe 4-5 seconds, then everything came back again like nothing had happened.
     
    I also had Civilization V freeze last night, although it was a driver error and from what I can see on Google it's related to the game rather than the GPU, just the timing is a little suspicious since I have not had this error before; "FGXRenderer11::Present failed he=DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED. Driver failure"

    well disregard my previous post.  i think this is a driver issue.  either by windows or nvidia... this is extremely frustrating... i may have to do RMA if this does not get resolved

    FFS just did it again in the middle of using photoshop.. I heard GPU fans spin up, then seconds later screen went black, then about 5 seconds later screen came back but photoshop (and all the work I had done) was gone, and GPU fans went back to normal. This NEVER happened with the 2080Ti.
     
    Earlier today I was just using FireFox browser to look at Amazon, same thing - black screen for a few seconds, then returned.
     
    What the heck?

    Sigh.. just had another black screen freeze for about 8 seconds..  only had firefox open with 4 tabs, and Precision X open ..nothing else. And this is just after finishing a full fresh install of windows. :/   Everything appeared to be frozen for maybe 3-5 seconds first, then black screen for a few more seconds, then everything returned again and was functioning..

    Set power management mode inside the nvcp to max performance globally. Reboot pc. See how that works for you.
