As per details from pnosker.com, Nvidia’s Kepler chip manufacturer TSMC had its information leaked regarding Nvidia to recall all its GTX 600 series graphics cards which includes the GTX 670, GTX 680 and the GTX 690.
I can't even find a 670 or 680 :(
I still hope this stays as a rumor. But sources from the chip manufacturer themselves are citing this as accurate.
all the GTX670 680 and 690 are sold out cause Nvidia seems to like to have a limited release before they flood the market. so if there are problems then hopefully they will be corrected before the full release. looking forward to the GTX660ti
@ NYC Gamer Yeah dude. As soon as they are available online, it's freaking gone in a heartbeat.
I was planning on buying the EVGA GTX 680 FTW edition (if I could find it), but perhaps I'll just wait a bit on this. It's too soon to know for sure if this is legit, but I do know that if I bought one of these cards and had sold my old card that it replaced, I would not be pleased if this turns out to be true.
I'm wondering if they've got anything in place to replace the recalled cards, myself.
Now I am glad that I've decided to wait on new computer tech. I usually am a sucker for anything high end and always end up with at least doing one RMA.
Fear not peeps and do not believe every piece of bullshit you read. http://www.xbitlabs.com/new... I've been pushing my 670oc with more oc and playing Pcars on 3 screens for hours at a time and my clock speeds haven't dropped a bit.
Excuse me so everyone who owns that EVGA GTX 670 superclocked are having their cards with artifacts on normal windows as bullshitting as well? Remember Apple's iPhone 4 death grip? Apple claimed we were holding the phones wrong. Similarly Nvidia denies this. Talk sense.
"Excuse me so everyone who owns that EVGA GTX 670 superclocked are having their cards with artifacts on normal windows as bullshitting as well?" So its nvidias fault if EVGA have messed up?
The EVGA GTX 670SC issue is different than the "NVIDIA recalling 600 Series" Fiasco. Pnosker started the rumor and Chinese site PCpop that NVIDIA might recall 600 Series due to performance degradation when running the GPU at loads for sometime. However Xbitlabs have reported that the rumor is false as stated by NVIDIA's spokesman. The EVGA issue is related to V-Sync issues. Buyers specifically using the SuperClocked variant of the 670 are facing these issues. Might be due to higher clock speeds however the issue has been addressed and EVGA is now replacing their cards with FTW variants which are working well.
