Channel Vendors Demand Recall of Desktop NVIDIA Products

Lack of proper clarification by NVIDIA on exactly which products have defects that require a recall, certain channel vendors now demand that some of their desktop graphics cards be recalled for a replacement. It had been established that certain discrete graphics processors for the mobile platforms had problems caused due to manufacturing defects and announcements were made on NVIDIA's part that they would recall and replace the faulty parts.

NVIDIA has commented that the faulty notebook GPU problem only exists in a few specific notebook models made by specific clients. The company contended that desktop-based discrete graphics card products are not affected by the issue.Source: DigiTimes

According to charlie demirjian,All the g84,g86 and g200 chips were manufactured from the same charge of wafer.
And probably all those chips are defected

Hint: This is an open invitation to card owners who are affected to OC till their cards explode. (if you have morals you won't but...)

If nVidia says the desktop GPU's aren't affected, then the case closed.

All major companies seem to follow the same principal in these matters, deny everything untill the bitter end. Would not be that shocked to see that this news has a truth behind it too.

It's not wafers that caused it. It's the ball soldering, wafers from the same source go to several companies for ball soldering. Obviously Charlie is 'fabricating'. What's new? :ohwell:
