AMD software let defective graphics cards slip into the channel
AMD reiterates no recall needed for defective graphics cards

I've recently bough new video for my system, MSI RX2600XT 512MB GDDR3 HEATPIPE.
I didn't install that card into system yet, but want to know does this (see article) affected my card?

How to identify? Can this issue be fixed (if found) only by BIOS update or I have to return card to my local reseller?

I'd be interested to find out if you had better luck than me! See my thread today.

I don't have any replies from MSI SUPPORT team (2nd week already).
I will wait for the answer for the next couple of years (centuries?)...

Hopefully, my card isn't affected by that issue.
I've installed it into my system and it works perfectly.  :worship:

Cool, glad it worked out for you. Have you tried running 3dmark or Cyberlink PowerDVDUltra?

As a matter of interest do you know what Catalyst drivers your running? 7.7?

Cheers,

Neil

I'll try to run 3dmark later.

Yep, 7.7

Quote from: Daily Tech
One AMD engineer, also speaking on terms of anonymity, claim that there are no cards in the channel with a UVD problem and they are unaware of faulty products leaving the factory.  "Any report claiming that defective HD 2600 and 2400 [cards] are recalled in the channel is completely untrue."

Perhaps a change in thread title is in order.

usamike,

According to AMD, there was no deffective cards.

You should of opened a thread and tried to fix your problem before jumping to BIOS updates.

All you can do is get a PCI VGA card, use that, then try and flash your 2400 again. Otherwise you will have to RMA it.

Who knows... May be they are just lying because of "good merketingish face".
But my MSI RX2600XT works well.
 
Or probably you have "just a defective" card.
