From everything I've read so far it's the caps, VRM's etc... that are going pop, This to me says low quality materials being used which wouldn't surprise me considering these cards were announced during a time when raw materials were starting to become very expensive due to the pandemic.

IMO companies cheaped out on VRM's, Caps etc... high FPS should not be enough to kill a card.

I reckon there's a driver level fix incoming like with furmark which used to fry GPUs at some point.

Though you are correct, it’s mainly specifically EVGA cards that are affected.
