The Geforce.com forum and Reddit began to receive more and more complaints about the breakdown of new Nvidia GeForce RTX video cards. It should be noted that similar situations happened with previous generations of video accelerators, but this time the number of reports about various defects turned out to be higher than usual.
Judging by the statistics of forum posts, the most problematic are the Nvidia GeForce video cards of the reference design. Most often, buyers complain about the failure of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition, and the second most frequent failure rate is occupied by a similar version of the GeForce RTX 2080. The fewest complaints are about video accelerators produced by Nvidia partners.
As for the problems themselves, among them, in addition to the banal hardware failure, there are image artifacts and unstable operation of video adapters in games.
