Re: Artifacts

Have you tried to downgrade the drivers to see if it is related to the current drivers?

Also a quick google search shows card failures like this to be common.

Re: Artifacts

@SpendLessTime  yes i have tried several drivers still same results Sad

Onboard GFX are ok , most common answer i was given was memory on card was overheating .

but test show all within parameters , weird

Re: Artifacts

Always worth trying different drivers but as you've done that, it does sound like a hardware issue. Hopefully it is still under guarantee as last time I had a card fail, it was outside Sad

Re: Artifacts

Yes thats typical fails just as warranty runs out 😣.i got 14 month left on this card 3year warranty
I have heard a lot of good reports about ASUS RMA support , i may get lucky if they cant fix it they may replace with latest equivalent . the 980 is no longer mainstream card ,, i may get a new 1080 πŸ‘as a replacement πŸ˜€

Re: Artifacts

@rongtw - Have you checked the fans on the card, that they're not obstructed and running at the correct speed? A blow out with a can of compressed air or a quick going over with the vacuum nozzle can do wonders. Just because the fans look clean doesn't mean there aren't dust bunnies caught in the heatsink.

Re: Artifacts

Are you referring to those black squares? I've seen this a number of times and the cause was a corrupt font. Don't know if this is your problem but it's certainly looking similar. Can you identify the font being used?

See here just in case you need to replace any corrupt fonts...

Re: Artifacts

@MKSlinky thanks for that Thumbs Up  but my 980 is still with ASUS RMA

BUT i have not seen this problem with the 680 i have borrowed , so it points to the 980 as the problem Wink

Re: Artifacts

@rongtw

You paid how much for that GFX card? Holy [-Censored-]..., talk about how the other half lives!! Got any old 'expensive' pc bit's you no longer need? My PC is made from egg boxes and held together with chewing gum cos I couldn't afford real Sellotape. Please nice man Smiley
