So I was playing Red Dead Redemption 2 this morning, when I hear Windows make a sound they make when they detect hardware change. I am like WTF so I swich the TV input to PC and…
black, no signal detected.
So I try different ports, monitor instead of TV, restarts and what not…
Nothing. No signal, even on boot, so the BIOS stuff is not visible either. I look at the RTX and see the light is not lit and the fans are not turning.
So I put back my trusty old 1070 and everything works again.
Seems I got myself a dead RTX. Funny, I read how Founder Edition RTX 2080Tis are dying in large numbers, so my nonFounder nonTi decided to join in on the fun I guess.
Now I just hope the RMA will be a painless process, or I get my money back.
I am not all that bothered since I am playing RDR2 now anyway and 1070 is still perfectly fine piece of hardware. I am glad I didn’t sell it though.
