GPU Sagging Could Break VRAM on 20- and 30-Series Models: Report

KrisFix, a German computer repair technician at YouTube, found that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (one of the best graphics cards launched in 2018) can fail late in life due to massive stress from GPU sag. I report that there are many. The technician demonstrated this on his damaged RTX 2080 Ti, where the GDDR6 memory bottom of his module failed to connect with the relevant solder points on the PCB after several years of use under the GPU’s massive sag. I showed that I could lose.

If KrisFix’s report is accurate, the 2080 Ti is starting to die more and more from this issue. Sure, they may be 4+ years old now, but the cards are still very functional and when the previous owner upgraded to something newer and faster like his RTX 4070 , many cards are resold as used cards. Given the root cause, the issue could appear in the next few years with his triple-slotted RTX 30-series and RTX 40-series GPUs. And so are AMD’s larger Radeon RX 6000 and 7000 series. This may result in the need for anti-slack brackets or vertical GPU mounts to extend the life of your GPU.
