This is the first hardware-level defect we’ve looked at. We’re still working through all of them, but this one is unique in its frozen clock speed!

This RTX 2080 Ti XC Gaming is stuck at 1350MHz and will not clock up to base or boost at all. Overclocking is impossible, and trying to boost clocks results in hard crashes, crashes to desktop, or system locks and black screens. Even if we leave the frequency alone, it still can’t get normal performance. Performance is significantly below a known good 2080 Ti.
