I believe it! I do not like my Gigabyte GTX 670 I just got last week. Its nonstop crashing and stuttering, sending it back this week.

Hmmm...strange. I don't know, yields are certainly low.

But i'll tell you what i got out of Nvidia's PR. A few days ago (unrelated to this).

I was told that the PR firm knew about the 680, 690 and 670 launches from the beginning. However, they've not been told anything else with certainty. the 660 Ti seems due for Nvidia's third quarter, which is somewhere around sept-oct, but there's not a 100% certainty when it'll come.

Will ask about this stuff, though i doubt i'll get much info.

P.S. this isn't at all like the SATA issue. If there were simply a few defective display outputs then it would have been a fair comparison. SB chips weren't at fault. More like IB's OC heating issues.

Never heard of either of those sites before, and they don't give any sources aside from claiming it's a "leak from TSMC."

Smells like bullshit to me.

Well if this does affect many cards then it will be problem, its already problematic considering the problems at TSMC making it hard to find a gtx 680 in stock. But apparently Evga is offering to replace defective Gtx670 SC with Gtx670 FTW editions.

Had mine over a week now with stress testing and normal gaming and no issues (EVGA version).

Hmmm... not very likely... But if there is too many of those cards that have problems, it would by itself be a bad gredibility problem. It is guite normal that there are some defective chip this early of production cycle. The problem is if they can not reliable screen them out from production line.

Im gonna have to call BS.....Im an ATI fan but I know Nvidia usually never makes mistakes this big, and Im sure they had to have done some serious stress testing on prototype models. If it is true than that could be catastrophic for the company financially and reputation wise. Sucks to because I was honestly thinking of getting a 670 this fall once the supply issue was handled. I wonder what the supposed degredation rate is

Well, no. EVGA's gtx 670 had some quality checking issues but that's just EVGA, Not nvidia.

I'll believe it when I see it. In the meantime, I'll be enjoying my overclocked GTX 670 and will continue to happily give it "long periods of heavy load".

Hopefully this isn't true but if it does turn out to be so then maybe some of the 6 series users who have contributed to this thread will keep us updated on their experiences.

UPDATE: Thanks to XbitLabs, we have a response from NVIDIA:
