Agree they do get away with far too much
Even going back to the nvidia bump gate saga g86 ect what 8 10 years ago
I was working for a friends firm back then and that was an absolute nightmare for him laptops where dropping like flies within less than a year all down to screen corruptions basically the ball grid solder coming away hair line cracks .
had to recall over 100 laptops in the field at the time to reinforced the chips on the corners with hard poly glue on the corners it still did not help there was endless failures
if i remember correctly it was over 60% of them that died within the 1 to 2 years some even sooner
it took him over 4 years to get any compensation form nvidia ..dell hp ibm and that did not even cover the time being spent resolving over 100 laptops ...
nvidia learned form that and cost them dearly but i am sure they still say it was not an issue
The problem was not known till it was too late with too many of them chips in the field ...The strange thing is it was not all of them i still have a g86 dell here from that time working there and its still going strong with every other day use ..so would seem it was a batch problem
But for me the one that hurt me was the 970 ram gate
i had sold alot of 970's at the time its a great card for the price but what nividia did there was a mega @@@@up
cost me dearly with time mainly dealing with clients never mind endless chats with manufactures distributor and nvidia i must have had over 30 returns of the 970 in less than a week at one point .
nvidia as a company i dislike very much but some of the there products are great when they work
one thing i will give nvidia praise for is there efficiency with Maxwell and above ....
just wish they would iron out issues 1st before releasing a cards into the wild
