I can't remove my GPU from the motherboard.



The tail end of the GPU is STUCK into the end latch.

I pressed down the latch prior to removal yet the GPU has jammed itself in there.

I tried pushing down the plastic latch with a screwdriver but the GPU is simply not budging.

Help?

Some latches work by being moved to the side.
I can't tell from the photo how yours works
Its a push down latch.

In any case, I managed to do it with a lot of brute force and with the help of my brother.

The tail end of my GPU seems really thick.

Good that you fixed it.
I always check how the latch works before installing a graphics card.
Unfortunately, by the time I need to use the latch, I forget.
The issue was removing the GPU as opposed to installing.

It's odd because I did not have any issues with my previous RTX 2080. It was very easy to remove.

This RX 570 on the other hand gets stuck every single time.
