    Someone donate me BF5 so I can test in on my PG27UQ using the 2080Ti with Raytracing and HDR. I am not buying the game lol. EA can get rekt. I actually refunded BFV after playing it for a bit using origin access premier. IT had literally no content and felt just like BF1.

    well that's pretty fucking inconvenient, how on earth nvidia have botched this so badly is beyond me.

    they had total market dominance and this is what they did, release a card no-one in their right mind wants to pay for (I'm not even sorry that is just too much dosh for a GPU - and no i'm no cheapskate i paid $1300 for a 1080Ti) and it's failing because of this shit.

    What amazes me is that there's all this, asking prices are actually still climbing, and yet there are still folk anxious to get their hands on the things. The things people will do to be cutting edge, hey huh?

    well no wonder u dont see flooded complaints on EVGA or Gigabyte forums about dead 2080Ti's...its just Nvidia's forums with dead FE's.

    I dunno about the legitimacy of that EVGA card bursting into flames. He might have shorted it or shunt modded it. But who knows. If more keep popping up then its prob legit.

    I have a very hard to get Titan XP watercooled and guaranteed not to catch fire. It can be all yours for the low low price of $2200*

    It's a crazy rip-off by the vendors. Even buying directly in the US, cost you still 2,000 AUD + postage. I wonder what will happen, when nVidia itself actually starts selling the Ti Founder Edition at the advertised price of 1,199 USD = 1600 AUD.

    Seems to be legit. Otherwise, why would nVidia admit that some of the "early" Ti Founder Editions boards had faulty components.

    I think he means the incident with the EVGA card catching fire. As in effecting them also and just not FE cards.

    Already now it seems to be legit. Otherwise, why would nVidia admit that some of the "early" Ti Founder Editions boards had faulty components.

    ok, I see. :) It might be an EVGA issue, and not related to the other problems with the 2080 TI Founder Edition that nVidia admitted.
