Which is bs in my opinion, because if its new and you register it they should stand by their product for at least a year no matter what. I never had to use the warranty but technically i don't have any warranty on my new evga card because of their policy.
If you don't purchase from an authorized retailer, you don't get any warranty. This is standard operating procedure for any piece of electronics, be it a video card, home theater system, TV, whatever.

I know some brands do not cover such problems until the cards go completely dead.

Of course, my hypothesis is based on after performing thorough tests and having ruled out other hardware being at fault other than the graphic cards.
There's no reason you wouldn't be covered for these issues. Anything that's clearly a manufacturing defect is covered, provided you purchased from an authorized reseller.
