His sample didn't die on him though? Gary Key implied Anandtech has lost 4 8800GT cards now... If G92 cards are having problems with sudden deaths, then that would conveniently explain why Nvidia has released so few of them and been slow to meet demand if nothing else.

Nah, mine has already survived 24hours non stop 3D overclocked 680/2000, looks like they did something wrong ?

Didn't have the time to test those cards week after week, sorry :/
EDIT: seems like they can die shortly after arrival, electromigration perhaps? Although 65nm is not that new, it is the first time NVIDIA build such an powerful processor that small, a failure in design?

I really don't know. I haven't browsed any NVIDIA support forums to check just how many issues are being reported, but despite the lack of supply I am noticing some threads reporting artifacting with 8800GT cards already.
