GeForce GTX 1080 comes with a bug

Bad news for those of you who have already spent cash on a shiny new GeForce GTX 1080 video card – the new tech wonder comes with a nasty bug.

It turns out that the fan that is installed on reference-design GTX 1080 cards has a mind of its own. Users of the new card have published numerous complaints online which come down to this – the GPU fan revs from 2000 rpm to 3000 rpm randomly and then drops back to idle speed. The issue also cannot be connected to clock speeds or rising GPU temperatures and what’s even worse is that some variations in fan speed are so intense that the noise produced becomes distracting.

NVIDIA has admitted the issue and there’s some good news – it appears that the problem is caused by drivers so a new driver release, due really soon, should fix the issue. In fact the new driver release has passed internal NVIDIA quality testing so expect it within a few days. Even then NVIDIA has been having issues with its drivers and products lately, which is something that is not nice.
