As per details from pnosker.com, Nvidia’s Kepler chip manufacturer TSMC had its information leaked regarding Nvidia to recall all its GTX 600 series graphics cards which includes the GTX 670, GTX 680 and the GTX 690.

Soon after the launch of its 600 series, Nvidia had run into serious supply issues with the 28nm chips having low yield and unable to meet up with demands that significantly lead to the delay in launching the GTX 670, 680 and the 690 besides also inflating prices of the aforementioned graphics cards.

Similarly related to the recall, EVGA has called back its GTX 670 SuperClocked graphics cards and replacing them with GTX 670 FTW editions free of charge as apparently many users are encountering artifacts with the particular card variant.

Nevertheless as per the report, the new Kepler GPUs tend to suffer in terms of performance when stressed over for long periods of time. This seems similar as to Intel’s 6 series chipset ‘Cougar Point’ fiasco.

Looks like anything that is related to the 6 series is plagued with issues. Keep in mind this is still a RUMOR but some do confirm this. We’ll keep you updated as we get more information on this.
