GRAPHICS CARD VENDOR EVGA has issued a partial recall of its Geforce GTX 670 Superclock boards claiming that some units did not go through its quality testing resulting in an 'isolated problem'.
EVGA, a popular brand with enthusiasts and known for its transferable lifetime warranty, pulled a batch of its Geforce GTX 670 Superclock boards with the part number 02G-P3-2672-KR. According to the firm, the boards did not go through EVGA's quality control procedures resulting in an isolated problem affecting an early batch of cards.
EVGA issued a statement to HardOCP in which it said, "EVGA has isolated this problem to an early batch of GTX 670 Superclock cards (P/N: 02G-P3-2672-KR) that were not properly screened during QA/QC procedure. We have already been working with our partners to retest this particular batch. In the meantime, our R&D has also done numerous tests, burn in and component quality verification to confirm that the EVGA GTX 670 Superclock is a well designed product."
EVGA did not go into what exactly is the problem with some of its Geforce GTX 670 boards but in a highly commendable move, the firm asked punters with iffy boards to come forward to receive an upgrade.
The firm said, "If any of your users are experiencing issues with their EVGA GTX 670 Superclock boards, please ask them to email Jacob Freeman [mailto link], and he will assist in getting them setup with an RMA cross shipment along with EVGA upgrading them to the GTX 670 FTW version (P/N: 02G-P3-2685-KR) for the inconvenience of this." µ
