You know, in some surgeries, foreign objects such as gloves or gauze are forgotten inside the patient. For example, an incident occurred in the production of RTX 3090. According to the sharing of Reddit user antonyjeweet, he bought a brand new RTX 3090 Founders Edition graphics card by giving tons of money (it’s known, its prices start from $ 1500), but after installing the card, he saw that the temperature of the graphics card was hovering at 230 degrees.
If a video card gets that hot, he said that there is definitely a problem in the thermal part, and when he opened the card by taking a little risk, he saw that a used finger glove was left inside one of the thermal pads.
“Now I know why my graphics card heats up so fast. Now the temperature peaks at 86 degrees Celsius even after 1.5 hours of voltage testing,” says antonyjeweet.
Nvidia at first stated that the card was out of warranty because antonyjeweet opened the inside of the card, but later on, they renewed the warranty of the card with the spread of the news. They said, “If it works properly, you can keep it, if you have a problem with it, send it and we will fix it” 🙂
Due to the difficulties of supplying chips on a global scale, it is possible for us to compete with such scenes in the future. Because the workers in these factories are in production work day and night, even in a factory in Vietnam, 150,000 workers were sleeping in the factory. In such a working order, both gloves and other things are forgotten in the card.
