It is only one retailer but AMD is still a long way behind Nvidia.

Doesn't surprise me, Most of the vendors do terrible jobs with their cards, Through my own experience the best AIB for AMD is Sapphire, 2nd is XFX, The rest seem to put no real effort in at all, They get their Nvidia design, Reduce the quality and then use it on the AMD card.

Yeah, as that article points out, not only were most of the RMA's are with PowerColor, but it was the Red Devil SKU specifically accounting for the significant majority of RMA's across the whole stack. If you take that SKU out they have lower RMA rates than NVidia, surprised that Red Devil ever made it to manufacture with almost 1 in 6 failing.

It was probably due to poor contact between the cold plate and die, AMD's partners seem to be making a habit of making really good coolers but having terrible contact on the actual die, The Radeon VII being a prime example, Made by Coolermaster I think ? And that had terrible contact with the die, Gamers Nexus did a video on it showing the majority of the die has zero contact with the cooler.

The records that Animal Crossing has been breaking have been quite impressive, after only 4 months its now the best selling single SKU game in Japan ever made, or the third best selling total after the first two Pokemon games.
