Components returns rates
by Marc Prieur
Published on October 22, 2009

Graphics cards

- PNY 1.69%
- ASUSTeK 1.71%
- MSI 2.05%
- Gigabyte 2.63%
- Sapphire 2.7%
- Gainward 3.15%
- Point Of View 4.67%

ASUSTeK like PNY have improved their rates, but PNY more so which gives them the best figures. Though Point of View have improved their score, they’re still bringing up the rear. Let’s now take a look at the stats per chipset:

- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260: 2.4%
- ATI Radeon HD 4850: 3.3%
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295: 6.5%
- ATI Radeon HD 4870: 6.1%
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280: 8.3%
- ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2: 10.5%

Like 6 months ago, the GTX 280s have the highest mono-GPU card rates. The bad surprise is with the Radeon HD 4870, which though pretty good previously now have a particularly high returns rate! High-end and reliability do not go hand in hand, and the 4870 X2’s score does nothing to contradict this.

Here are the least 10 reliable models:

- Sapphire 4870 X2 10.6%
- Gigabyte GV-N98TOC-1GH 10.6%
- Sapphire 4870 512 MB 10.1%
- Gainward GTX 280 8.7%
- Gigabyte GV-N98XPZL-1GH 8.1%
- Gainward 4870 512 MB GS 7.5%
- ASUSTeK GTX 280 7.4%
- Point Of View 9800 GT 7%
- Gainward 4850 512 MB GS 6.9%
- Gigabyte N28-1GH-B 6.4%

The poor scores of the Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 and 4870 X2, that make up the large majority of cards sold, have in fact pulled the overall rates for these GPUs upwards. Nevertheless you can see that Gainward has also had reliability problems with the Radeon HD 4800s.
