EVGA discovers that poor craftsmanship is to blame for its bricked NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 cards ↺


Recommended Posts


Apparently, EVGA learned from X-ray images that the defective graphics cards had poor solder joints around their MOSFET circuits, which help a card regulate its voltage. Presumably, the voltage spikes overloaded these, but EVGA has not offered a further explanation on the matter.


However, the company claims that less than 1% of all RTX 3090 cards that it has sold are affected. Fortunately, EVGA is replacing the affected graphics cards for free. It does not seem as though any other EVGA graphics cards suffer from a similar problem, either.




Not new new news but now makes you wonder if you are part of the affected 😞
