PNY punts 'lifetime warranty' graphics cards
If it breaks in 2029, they'll replace it
PNY Technologies has come over all generous and announced a plan to provide lifetime warranties with some of its graphics cards.
From 1 September, the firm’s XLR8 GeForce GTX series of graphics cards will have a standard one-year out-of-box warranty. Once you register your purchase on the firm’s website, PNY will then reward you with a lifetime of coverage.
The cards covered by the offer are the GTX 295 1792MB, GTX 285 1024MB, GTX 275 896MB and the GTX 260 896MB.
The XLR8 GTX cards are firmly aimed at gamers - the very group of customers most likely to replace their graphics cards on a regular basis. As such, PNY must surely not expect to be called on too often to replace any of the four XL8 cards that will come with the lifetime warranty offer.
There's no sign that the deal covers damage caused by overclocking, not that we'd expect it to. ®
