update: According to current research, Hardwareluxx caused defective Geforce RTX 2080 Ti reports. As you know, many reports are from the publishers of the Founders, which sold directly from Nvidia.
Infrared images are taken with these thermal cameras, and then the Hardwareluxx sensor, according to which graphics cards are overclocked, with GDDR6 memory cards installed on FE graphics cards in some areas up to 92 degrees. The maximum temperature of memory chips – the manufacturer Micron 95 degrees. So there is not a lot of space here.
If there are still some deviations in the measurements, possibly with one or more computer compartments, the VRAM temperature can cause the graphics card to fail.

Gamers Nexus is studying the dead Geforce RTX 2080 Ti if readers are ready to dispatch it. In addition, the website links with the source of the video producers and officially talks with Nvidia partner. Not one of them reported a large number of defective maps and corresponding refunds.

The causes of RMA provided by customers have not changed, and in fact, the RMA indicator is very low. For some producers it is less than 0.01%. However, this may also be due to the fact that there are few copies. Players want Nexus to explore this issue further.
