RTX 2070 Quandry

Hi I'm looking for some advice, recently I decided to change my Evga 1080 supeclocked 2 for an Msi 2070 gaming Z. All was fine for a week until it started with the artifact issue, so I returned it to where I bought it and replaced it with an Evga rtx 2070 xc ultra. Now this has started with the same issue! I'm at a loss, is the micron memory issue a lottery or is there a manufacturer that can be trusted not to manifest this issue? I'm beginning to think that i'll either stick with my 1080 or wait to see what the red team will offer with the navi iteration of card. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

It's the Micron memory and yes it's a lottery as no retailer would tell you as they wouldn't sell any.

I'd stick with the 1080 for now unless you desperately need 20% more performance or so.

thanks for the input if there really is no "safe"manufacturer then its looking like I will stick with my 1080. Tbh I like the card but was interested in the 20 series cards and i'm sucker for new shiny things! the visual fidelity on my 1440p monitor was great but I dont think the issues are worth the hassle, 2 cards in a month is looking like my limit. I've never had to rma a card before this and now its looking like 2 in a month

I’m personally sticking with my 1080 Ti Strix, it’s more than capable of running todays games at 1440p. And as much as I love shiny new things as well, paying the amount which is asked for, for the 20 series, for only a 20-30% perfomance increase? That’s just insane and not worth it in my opinion.

Mate of mine bought his son a 2070 and himself a 2080 Ti, Both developed artifacting issues with days of eachother, As Alien said it's a memory issue, Stick with your 1080 for at least another generation until GDDR6 matures.
