Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti are in the market, however, these GPUs have problems of their own. Users are reporting that these newly released Nvidia RTX GPUs have fan and display issues.
When users buy a new GPU they expect the GPU to be an improvement over the previous. However, some users have reported that Nvidia RTX GPUs including RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti are having issues.
As you can see in the image below, the display is all pixelated and this is one of the users who are facing this issue with Nvidia RTX GPUs.
Not only that, users have reported that they are also facing fan issues like fans are not working at all or only one of them is working. This results in GPU temperature to increase which causes the performance to drop.
Nvidia hasn’t issued any statement regarding these issues with Nvidia RTX GPUs. However, we are hopeful that Nvidia will soon be addressing it.
These issues could be the result of faulty display drivers for Nivida RTX GPUs and a driver update will be needed to resolve them.
Speaking of Nvidia RTX GPUs, reportedly Nvidia has locked RTX 2080 Ti’s performance. Meaning the money you are paying for the GPU, you are no getting the performance it is capable of delivering.
Furthermore, with the launch of Nvidia RTX GPUs, PC enthusiasts wasted no time testing the GPUs for cryptocurrency mining. The results are interesting, to say the least.
Testers used the Nvidia RTX 2080 Founders Edition and RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition. The Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition managed to reach 49 MH / s clock speed while consuming 260 W of power.
The RTX 2080 Founders Edition managed to reach 36 MH / s clock speed. Compared to Radeon RX Vega 64, the RTX 2080 Ti has achieved some impressive numbers.
Furthermore, Nvidia has also brought power consumption fixes with driver version 411.70. According to the tests, the driver improves Power consumption for both Nvidia RTX GPUs. But still, the power consumption is not as-as good as the Pascal GPUs aka Geforce GTX 10 series.
