Not long after the launch of the new generation of AMD flagship card RX 7900 XTX, it was found that there were defects in the design of the public domain, and the hot spot temperature of the Hot Spot could be as high as 110℃, resulting in wild fan rotation, great noise, reduced frequency and impaired performance.
AMD initially denied that there were defects, but later admitted that there was a problem with the cooling design, adding that the number of impacts was small and would not be recalled.
Recently, Scott Herkelman, senior vice president of AMD and general manager of the graphics division of Radeon, finally talked about it publicly.
He pointed out thatThere is a problem with a small batch of RX 7900 XTX vacuum cavity soaking plates, in which there is less coolant (water). Affected players can contact after-sale to repair.
But,According to the authoritative hardware media Igor'sLab survey, it is found that the return rate of RX 7900 XTX in the German market is as high as 9-11%.
In fact, Igor Wallossek, editor-in-chief of Igor'sLab, was one of them, and the reply he got when he contacted AMD in Germany was not as smooth as it said:
The stock is out of stock, cannot be exchanged, and when the goods will arrive is uncertain, but they can be refunded.
Of course, the return rate of 9-11% does not mean the same failure rate, and it does not rule out that some players are for other reasons or worried about problems, but even if half is removed, it is about 5%, which is quite high.
Before the launch of the RX 7900 XTX, AMD disclosed that the first batch of stock was 200000 yuan, which was 10, 000 yuan at a failure rate of 5 percent, or 2000 yuan even at 1 percent.
Fortunately, due to some reasons, the RX 7900 series of public cards do not enter the domestic market, and domestic players do not have to worry about this.
