Nvidia’s RTX 3080 has got off to a shaky start. Not only is the GPU out of stock just about everywhere, but now people who managed to get their palms on a person are complaining of crashes all through gaming.  

Nvidia’s Founders Edition playing cards feel to be in the very clear, as ComputerBase experiences that the problem seems to be affecting customized variants of the RTX 3080. This features the Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity, the EVGA RTX 3080 XC, and the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ventus 3X OC – all of which have been overclocked by their respective makers. 

In accordance to numerous discussion board threads and social media posts, the GPUs are crashing to desktop (CTD), which sees a match freezing or crashing prior to returning to the desktop. Some consumers have also claimed black screens, usually associated with CTDs.   

The cause of the CTD issues remain a thriller, although many are suggesting that the difficulty occurs when the graphics card exceeds boost clock speeds of 2.0GHz. 

There’s no formal repair as of yet both, whilst some are recommending manually decreasing the clock speeds by up to 100MHz and disabling Hardware-accelerated GPU organizing in Home windows 10 alleviates the problem as a non permanent answer. 

Some are also recommending underneath-volting the RTX 3080, although this is only attainable by way of the  MSI Afterburner four.6.three BETA 2 utility. 

Nvidia, nor its board associates, have yet to offer an formal response, and it remains to be observed no matter if Nvidia RTX 3090 and RTX 3070 graphics playing cards are also influenced by the glitch.
