The EVGA GTX 1080ti has the name illuminated, the MSI RTX 2060 above it does not.

In a different rig the EVGA RTX 3060 is not lit up, the EVGA GTX 1070 in a third machine is illuminated.

So my question is: why? what? how? :unsure:

Well FWIW the 1080ti and the 1070 each have 2x 8 pin vga hookups and they both light up, whereas the RTX 2060 & RTX2060 have one connector and are not lit. :unsure:

Flagship card versus budget card (or just different classes of the same for that matter - think K|ngp|n versus XC in Evga - it's a tiering thing)
Different heatsinks
Different BRANDS, even.
Power/connectors have nothing to do with it..they are LEDs that sip on power.
These don't feel similar enough to be comparing them...(?)

The MSI card simply doesn't do it. :)
