The NVIDIA RTX 2060 Founders Edition is more difficult to open than even the previous RTX FE cards, now adding more glue to the process.

Our review is available separately: https://ai-tube.com/videoai/o4Xsep3xx_p

The RTX 2060 is a significantly more competitive RTX offering than previous RTX cards, but still faces the same challenges in assembly for the Founders Edition model. There are still a lot of screws, there's still glue, but now it's more difficult to get the cooler off, thus making it more difficult to replace the thermal paste on the RTX 2060. Servicing the RTX 2060 Founders Edition model will be difficult.

Glue LOL

I remember how the 200 series nvidia cards featured these wrap around full body back plates, and they really felt high quality vs what was previously done with bare PCBs

This hurt to watch him slam the cards around on the table...

Red Loctite on GPU Screws? Hell, Red Loctite is for shit like Engine Flywheels.

Does RTX 2060 has the same GDDR6 memory problems like the 2080? Is it the same Micron GDDR?

Meanwhile at Nivida: Do think Steve will figure out we did this just to fuck with him?

Why do you take the cards apart?

Nvidia is taking the Apple business model applying it to video cards. For every extra screw they use that's another $10 they add to the cost. Because everybody knows the more screws used makes it a better products. Or just shows how much your getting screwed.

amd says hi 😋
Yuurekk
they obviously change screw' sizes to make a common user be frustrated to fix their own product.

Imagine they just glued this card, just for Steve. Sitting there watching sipping tea.
Pityu Iam
"difficult" to open... lmao try a vaio notebook.
MisterCandyMan
Next time fast forward the screwing part wasting time.

Jeez I'll avoid the reference card when I get my RTX 2060. Thanks Tech Jesus!

Nvidia likes to screw us 😂😂😂

This channel becoming whining channel? ^^

We revisit a topic from July of 2017: What do board partners and PSU manufacturers think of cryptomining? What is affecting GPU price?

Article: https://www.gamersnexus.net/industry/3211-what-do-manufacturers-think-of-mining-and-gpu-prices

Find our original coverage of this question here: https://ai-tube.com/videoai/C_bUDCJEJaD

This video visits the topic of GPU prices and video card supply, primarily asking manufacturers and board partners to anonymously share thoughts on the industry. During this discussion, we talk about rising memory prices -- as with RAM -- and tightening memory supply. We also talk cryptomining demand and its impact, GPU mining, and power supply maker thoughts on the same issues.

This is a time where high RAM prices and high GPU prices have made it nearly impossible to build a new gaming PC -- at least, not without spending a fortune. Mining is partly to blame, but supply is also to blame. Vendors are concerned about over-investing in additional graphics cards when a cryptomining crash could mean being left "holding the bag," as it were. This goes further with new architectures undoubtedly looming -- no Turing test needed to figure that out -- as it becomes harder to sell overstock of old architectures at that time.
