Nvidia will be fixing the GTX 1080's fan revving issues in future driver update

 

GTX 1080 users all over the internet have been reporting their GTX 1080 Founders Edition GPUs have been suffering from fan speed issues, where the GPUs fan rapidly rises from around 1800 RPM to 3000 RPM to then decline again within a few seconds.

Nvidia has confirmed that they will be fixing the GTX 1080 Founders Edition's fan revving issues in an upcoming driver update. This fix has already passed Nvidia's internal testing and will be included in their next driver release.

Below is a screenshot showing how the fans speed changes, with sudden spikes that increase the fans speeds by over 1000 RPM and then decline to normal values. Users have reported that this sounds similar to waves hitting the shore and that they find the sudden and repetitive noise changes very annoying.

Hopefully, this fix will be available to GTX 1080 users soon, likely as a part of Nvidia's Mirror's Edge Game Ready Driver.

It's just sad when NVIDIA themselves start shipping their flagship card and they haven't tweaked that little thing that is the fan curve... I mean, it's shouldn't be much effort from their side....

Things like that show utter lazynessQuote

Maybe the laziness is cause of the Market Share that nVidia has and they thought they could get away with it.

I don't buy for one second that they have fixed it cause of in house testing, i'm waiting until third parties have tested it and it's fixed and then it would be.Quote

Im quite certain that Nvidia are not resting on their laurels. The GTX 1080 was a huge release for nvidia.
The fan speed issue was a minor bug thats been blown well out of proportion by some groups of people. I had the issue in one of the GTX 1080s i had and it really wasnt a problem at all.
I find it amusing that a lot of AMD fans rant about how terrible the thermal throttling (most dont understand GPU boost) and fan speed issues of the GTX 1080 are and have forgotten about the noisy pump issues that plagued the release of the Fury X and black screen issues that AMD still have not fixed with the Fury cards ( i went through 3 fury X cards before i eventually got tired of the pump noise and put a custom block on it).
I would much rather have a slight problem with a driver than a hardware issue every day.Quote
