[NVidia] Offering Free Games for Test Cards

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Didn't see this posted:

Apparently some users are still reporting idle/browser TDRs with 285.62, so Manuel from the official Nvidia forums is asking for people with the issue to actually send in their cards directly to NV for testing (shipping covered by Nvidia).

We can pay for shipping both ways and I can probably get some free game codes to offer you for your time. Please PM if you would be willing to do so. You must be in the USA however since international shipping can complicate things.

Yeah, if I actually had a card atm I'd be all over this

The problem seems to effect GF104 and 114 GPUs more so than others, so if you 460/560/560Ti owners are still getting driver resets, this could be a great opportunity.
