Long story short, I’m trying to figure out if I just need to RMA this card, or if there’s something I’m missing or another check I can do.
Long story longer… I got a 6800 XT, but it has no video output (on BIOS or OS), but the old GTX 1060 it’s meant to replace does. Doesn’t matter the PCIE slot (I’ve swapped them and the 1060 works) nor the cable (DVI or HDMI) as both work on the 1060, and not on the 6800 XT. I’ve tried it in both slots alone and in tandem with the 1060, and it never has an output.
It is “seen” by the OS (though I’m running Fedora Silverblue).
Motherboard: ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PRO (updated BIOS 4802)
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core Processor
OS: Fedora Linux 38.20230915.0 (Silverblue)

I’ve no idea how to make the driver actually run (I’ve removed Nvidia drivers and kernel parameter blacklists, but this is what is running.
$ glxinfo | grep -i device Device: NV136 (0x1c03)
My understanding is that the linux kernel has drivers built in (and I still have no idea why the BIOS never shows – that’s what makes me think RMA), but my understanding is that the below output seems to suggest I have drivers that should work.

Posted on Fedora Forums here, but I’m mostly trying to figure out if I just need to RMA a 6800xt I just got to replace my GTX 1060.
I’m willing to believe I’m an idiot and have overlooked something basic, but I’ve also never had to RMA before, so want to ensure I’m not missing something obvious as I’d rather it work.
Any advice or guidance appreciated. Happy to post additional output if useful.
