Why ? As far as I know, the current 3.5 GB segment has 196 GB/s of bandwidth (and not 224 GB/s), so you're saying it would be even slower ? Why and how much ?The ROPs and L2 cache aren't on their site, it's not part of the specs sheet, so they can get away with saying that they didn't print the specs wrong because they actually never did print those specs (as I said, debatable peak memory bandwidth numbers aside). The technical PR material handed to the tech media on the...
You're missing the point and are actually using the same line of defense as some of the tech media that went on to self justify with the obvious - of course the card still performs the same as it did in the games they tested, that much should go without saying - but in this case it didn't, and that is the curious situation we're in - Nvidia essentially threw the tech media under the bus.They have said that they didn't advertise any of the wrong specs - and technically, on...
I can't help but feel insulted again.No, you didn't describe it at all to begin with, so this is clearly the wrong way to start the message.As fas as I understand it, this is overplaying the difference for dramatic purposes. They can have 3.5 GB. Making a reference to 3 GB and the tone of 1 GB extra being a great thing is just to convey the message "hey, would you rather have a card with only 3 GB of VRAM?", when it seems it's not the case at all.So this is an official...
Ars coverage of the matter: http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/02/lenovo-honestly-thought-youd-enjoy-that-superfish-https-spyware/ http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/02/lenovo-pcs-ship-with-man-in-the-middle-adware-that-breaks-https-connections/ http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/02/lenovo-cto-says-we-didnt-do-enough-promises-to-wipe-superfish-off-pcs/
The greater picture here - and it applies to all current and future Internet of things devices - is that these brands should be making clear that consumers are essentially getting a TV with the processing internals of a smartphone / tablet and a comparable mobile OS. Since you only pay for the TV and not the continued usage of the Internet services (and OS updates / security updates) they provide, the consumer is essentially the product sold to third parties that helps...

Exactly. They are in full damage control mode, and that implies saying as little as possible to avoid both admitting that there is a problem and the additional exposure, hoping that the matter goes away, which, let's be honest, with a viral video already at 500k+ views in less than a week isn't going to happen.That is why the comment about helping people with returns was removed. It's all happening at the retailer level in a non standard manner, meaning you will get a...
From their current 'full damage control mode' stance, I'd say not a chance, that would imply admitting that there is something wrong with the 970.What I can see happening is the following:- 970 Ti with 1792 CUDA cores, full L2 cache and 64 ROPs, for $10 MSRP more than the 970's launch price (price has to be different so they can deflect criticism easier), for practically the same performance of the 980. Will make the 980 even more niche than it already is, but it's the...
Indeed. Done.http://www.overclock.net/t/1538810/pcper-via-videocardz-is-will-g-sync-module-be-unneeded
So Nvidia's GM204 can use Adaptive Sync / Freesync, and they will be enabling it on laptops. A bit doubtful whether calling it G-Sync is the best of ideas, firstly because they are piggybacking on AMD's work (even though G-Sync came out earlier truth be told, but still), and secondly because this won't give people the whole experience since it lacks the module, hence it's not really G-Sync. I wonder what kind of excuse they will give the desktop customers to not enable...
