Every company needs to take responsibility for their own quality control. In the case I experienced, EVGA was not acknowledging there was a widespread issue even though many others were reporting the same issue. Many people RMA'd their cards and received replacement cards that had the same issue.
So, no, EVGA doesn't get a free pass on this one.
