In an unusual move, Asus shifted blame for its overheating ROG STRIX 5700 series graphics cards to AMD, claiming the GPU maker's mounting pressure guidelines delivered inadequate mounting force.

1. Asus has enough experience, they should have caught the issue before it went out to customers. No other company has had the same issues.

2. There are more problems with the Asus RX 5700 series cards, like the horrible VRAM cooling. Even if the blame can be shifted to AMD for poor design specifications for cooler pressure, it cannot explain how absolutely horrible these cards are

Yeah, like Asus TUF RX5700 with literally no VRM passive on it was a great idea and AMD is to blame for ASUS's mistakes... This is really pathetic from ASUS. Instead of making proper passive cooling, they try to blame engineers. And also More pressure would not make that much difference. There is a question though if thermal paste/pads are of good enough quality to make thermal contact with the chips (they are not)

AMD.... everything they make overheats. It's not optimized. Hell NVidia and Intel makes better stuff.

So what ASUS is saying is they don't do Q/C on their cards? That sounds more worrying than anything else.

If AMD cannot competed we get crap product from Intel and Nvidia too! I don't think RTX 3000 would be fantastic if AMD couldn't deliver the competition. Remember RTX 2080 couldn't beat their own GTX1080 because AMD delivery zero competition from AMD. While Intel has to lower their price to compete with Ryzen. Don't be a fan boy. Be smarter.

I bet it's also AMD fault for Asus faking their vrm temps on x470 and x570 too hey !!!

AMD: know for inability to control thermal from the beginning. Intel overheat = thtrotle down / shutdown. AMD overheat = burned smell

Asus: quality getting worse over the years. They built quality going down the drain starting 5-6 years ago.

What a load of crap, you don't see any other company needing to do this, their tuf cards were literally a joke. As for the moron claiming Intel and Nvidia have cooler running products, they clearly haven't owned a newer generation CPU from Intel in a while.

My MSI overcooked xt5700 works fine and runs cool and quiet.

I bet the 40PSI is for the graphite thermal pad which is used on the reference design. Asus clearly changed the design and used thermal paste. Pads and paste are very different and paste is not solid, and does not function in the same way. Hope someone at ASUS has their engineering degree revoked.
