== Identifying the faulty memory bank(s) == [[File:Mats example.jpg|thumb|Example report on an RTX 2060 (Figure 2)]] [[File:2060 memory example.jpg|thumb|RTX 2060 faulty memory chips (Figure 3)]] Reading the report example in Figure 2, MATS found errors on D1 and C0, which correspond to the memory chips marked in Figure 3. Usually, only one chip fails and makes the card not output a picture or displays artifacts. In this case however, there was a problem with 2 chips which points to a IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) fault which is inside the core. Luckily, this particular card was dropped by the user. Taking the memory chips off, cleaning the pads and resoldering the chips back fixed it. If you get errors on all channels though, it's either the IMC or a power related issue that either killed all the memories or is not suppling enough power to them. The failing bits can sometimes tell you if the issue is the memory itself or the IMC but replace the memory to make sure.
