Reference AMD Radeon 7900 GPUs may contain a faulty batch. Igor Wallossek offered a quick update on the findings of Der8auer. Keep in mind that Der8auer just released a video discussing thermal throttling concerns with AMD Radeon 7900 reference cards. While he hasn’t given us a comprehensive explanation just yet, he says that defective vapor chambers are probably to blame for GPU hot spots and thermal throttling.
Today, Igor contributes by relaying a letter from a board member. Reportedly, the unnamed OEM anticipates at least one defective Radeon 7900 series batch may have escaped the factory. The potential issue identified is inadequate coolant addition to the vapor chamber. Igor does not wish to reveal the der8auer’s new findings; therefore, it is vital to note that the YouTuber is scheduled to upload a new video tomorrow, which should contain further information.
It is too soon to know if these statements are accurate for individuals who have been impacted. Even if a faulty batch of Radeon 7900 reference cards exists, it is currently unknown how many were produced and where they were distributed.
