    [news] NVIDIA Confirms Issues Affecting Early Production GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Graphics

The issues, which resulted in "crashes, black screens, blue screen of death issues, artifacts and cards that fail to work entirely," started cropping up throughout tech forums, before reaching a critical mass that warranted coverage - just in case this was exactly what it seemed, ie, a production issue.

    It seems this was just so, and that the problem was luckily limited to some early manufacturing issues or QA controls. As NVIDIA themselves put it, "Limited test escapes from early boards caused the issues some customers have experienced with RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition." The company then says that they stand ready to help customers who are experiencing problems - but nothing else was to be expected, really.

    A great place again
    I'd just like to see the massive price gouging stop and for nvidia to put the product on the shelves.

    I think till better and cheaper ASIC cards hit the market, we won't get our graphic cards for the msrp's that they should be...

    ASIC miners. ... Application specific integrated circuits, or ASICs, are chips that are designed with a singular purpose, ranging from audio processing to managing a cellphone call.
    As for the 2080 ti, I usually try to stay away from first gen cards. I think the early adopters and pre-orders were hurt the worse since thye talk about some early QA issues
