    I get what you're saying but if we take money out of the equation I'm more sympathetic as even with the best will in the world things go wrong, that and how EVGA have handled the whole thing when compared to other recent tech company issues (NZXT, Gigabyte, SSD manufactures).

    Poor workmanship, are these things not done by a machine then, I would have expected them to be, and as such the number of faulty cards to be higher as I suspect the machine would make a lot more cards than 'two dozen'.
    Seems odd to me..

    As per Corky, all manufactured products have issues. It's how the company handles it that makes the difference. By the sounds of it EVGA did very well.

    As for the description of "poor workmanship", I'd guess that's a quote from the person who checked the solder joins and found them wanting. Likely someone very experienced with hands on soldering. I can certainly imagine how these machines might have an intermittent fault. Soldering is one of those things where repeated process doesn't always yield repeatable results. Because my soldering iron hates me.

    Depends on how many users limit their frame rates (I do on my FE for example), how many users play games that have an uncapped UI etc. There are probably more out there from the same batch, that have the same issues that haven't reared their head yet.

    Got to admit, at least EVGA don't duck and cover and actually deal with the problem properly.

    Re: EVGA says New World RTX 3090 issues were due to solder

    Yeah the way they have handled it, sending out cards before they received the faulty ones is a good sign, however, for me the numbers don't add up, there were only about 2 dozen cards out there they think that have the issue and yet the number of those cards that have been killed by this game ties up, sounds off to me, surely there are cards that were in this bad batch that haven't been killed yet, if they were really good and this was really the problem I would expect them to reach out to the customers of those cards (if they've been registered on the EVGA site) and offer to send out a newer card, then when the customer has received said card then send the other one back...
