    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    Already covered in the OP, including the specs issue being incorrect as well as the 3.5+0.5GB segmentation not being disclosed and being the part actually causing the practical performance issues. It seems you enjoy repeating things already said in a discussion :confused: . Anywho, the whole...

    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    Two cards, and they're the second-fastest NVidia even sells (hardly mid-range, and equivalent to the top cards that AMD sells at all to boot). Just to put things in perspective :).

    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    Using DSR and/or MSAA is unrealistic? Hardly. I was running a 4k monitor and actually literally returned it because I thought the monitor was defective due to this entire false advertising and card design flaw problem. And even at 2560x1440 native that I'm now running because I sent my 4k back...

    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    The problem isn't just that the framerates go down more than they should, but primarily the huge stuttering and frametime inconsistencies additionally. DSR is both a standard feature on these cards, and a 100% accurate way to test this issue. In reviewers' cases they usually don't, as you said...

    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    It indeed is false advertising. They falsely advertised the number of rops, l2 cache, and the fully accessible memory capacity at advertised speeds, in addition to providing incorrect specifications to reviewers to publish on their behalf for samples they provided to create articles about. Only...

    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    Copying my post from the NVidia boards: As an owner of two MSI Gaming GTX 970 cards running in SLI, I am seeing a huge performance impact in the form of strongly fluctuating frametimes when going over the 3.5gb mark on vram, essentially making it unplayable due to stuttering + choppy motion +...

    [GPU-Z Test Build] BIOS saving on Maxwell

    Whoops, meant to drop my feedback in a couple of days ago but this worked fine on both a single eVGA SC ACX 1.0 GTX 970 and works fine on my current SLI-enabled pair of MSI GTX 970 Gaming cards in the system (two of the same card). VGA driver safely disabled itself briefly even on my 4k MST...

    GTX 980/970 Club

    I actually was a bit worried about that before getting them and found this handy-dandy article to assuage my concerns :) : http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Impact-of-PCI-E-Speed-on-Gaming-Performance-518/ End result with two oc'd titans was margin-of-error differences and a 1fps...

    GTX 980/970 Club

    Here's my result so far (and temps that I end up at after over an hour of play in BF4 and around 90 minutes earlier in Archeage with maxed gpu usage throughout) with the aim being for silent operation & low heat output. This is on a 4.4ghz 2600k running both cards at PCI-E 2.0 x8, to boot...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 SLI

    Hey @W1zzard, are you seeing the same behavior as I outline here with two 970's in SLI (during your review for example)? One card always runs at 50mv lower than the other in SLI mode regardless of voltage settings or which card is where in the system, though both are able to run 1.243-1.2500v...

    When do you plan on buying a 4K monitor?

    Meh, super high distorting on sides aspect ratio for much lower rez and low support gamewise. Rather have my 4k panel... and yeah I voted with my wallet :D.

    When do you plan on buying a 4K monitor?

    Got mine today, paid in the mid-$600 range for a brand new Dell UP2414Q and LOVE it. Amazing build quality, amazing display quality, amazing EVERYTHING. Win8.1 scaling works 100% perfectly for me on everything I've tried (with some programs requiring small tweaks for font size) but photoshop and...

    Radeon R9 290X Clock Speeds Surface, Benchmarked

    And against a $650 or less GTX 780 like the Superclocked ACX or similar, that are faster than Titans right out of the box? It gets murkier there ;). Personally I've sold my GTX 780 and am looking to spend $500-800 on a card or pair of cards to run faster. Right now it's not looking like this...

    MSI Launches a Pair of GeForce GTX 770 Graphics Cards

    So, is the voltage control unlocked i.e. you can go above 1.2125v with software settings? It says unlocked BIOS, and the HardOCP review talks about unlocking power limits and all protections, but that's not specific enough really to know.

    GTX 700 Series Benchmarks Unveiled...

    These are old, "guess"/speculation charts from late April as stated by their original source, not to mention based off of incorrect specs anyway... nothing to see here, folks. It came from here on April 27th: http://www.microcomputer.com.cn/index.php/article/index/id/12894

    NVIDIA Kepler Refresh GPU Family Detailed

    Oh, perhaps it was originally, but GK100 was certainly not "held back" so they could "put out a midrange card as high-end for mad profits!!!!" as some people like to proclaim.

    NVIDIA Kepler Refresh GPU Family Detailed

    It proves nothing. In fact, if anything, it shows nVidia didn't have a great, available GK100. Now that GK110 came out well, they may be releasing it as the high-end. You really need to not be so hung-up on codenames. Considering the Tesla card specs have been outed by a CAD vendor recently...

    I wonder... A) Will this card lift the hardware-limited voltage cap? B) When is this thing coming out...?
