wiwi20Hi Sorry. Let me rephrase my question. I sent my 3080 Ultra FTW for RMA (faulty fan) and got a 3090 Ultra FTW in return. Was given a new serial number which is reflected on 1) my products page, 2) Sticker on GPU and 3)the box but the model/part number on the products page, gpu and box remains 10G-P5-3897 (3080 Model). What happens if i have an issue with my replacement 3090? Thanks!
wiwi20They want me to return the card. I waited so long for the replacement and now I am gonna have to wait again?
XrayMan If they don't have the same card, you could get a card similar in performance, or better in return.
the_Scarlet_oneXrayMan If they don't have the same card, you could get a card similar in performance, or better in return.The box, the cooler, the serial number, and the registered product on the EVGA website all say 3080, but GPU-z says 3090. That is not an upgrade due to lack of stock, that is a mistake. They don’t upgrade by giving an upgraded PCB with all of the wrong original information mismatching the PCB.wiwi20They want me to return the card. I waited so long for the replacement and now I am gonna have to wait again?Does the card have an NVlink fingers? That is a tell-tale sign since no other 3000 series GPU’s have NVlink capability. And yes, if you paid for a 3080, you should get a 3080. There is no telling how a 3090 ended up with a 3080 serial number or if that 3090 even has the correct thermal pads on the back. Hopefully EVGA can expedite you a card back to make the wait shorter.
