It's a darn Video card, and has to get that straight. It's like getting a smartphone where its shoots 4K videos at 1000fps, but drops the call after every 30 seconds.

$620 actually, gotta love Canada.

I agree, and I know FOR SURE i would be losing my mind if I was hit hard by this issue. I have been a strict AMD/ATI GPU user for a very long time now and this is actually the first nVidia card I bought probably within the last 6-7 years. I got tired of the loud, and very hot running AMD cards and this seemed to be a perfect upgrade considering I upgraded my monitor too. But i know if I was getting stuttering in videos like everyone else, or even the issue at under 200FPS then I honestly could just as well be telling myself "Why the hell did I ever come back to the green side". Opinions will always lie on either side of the fence but Im trying to look at it the best way I can right now, and even though the reason I stayed away from nVidia for so long was the driver issues I had many years ago... I can see now that they are atleast trying to fix this issue and the hotfix out now worked for me, so I am going to keep my new "faith" with them and see where it goes.

Hope I don't get the issue then, or if I do, that its fixed before I go to college in 2 weeks...

You don't have any of these issues? Games or videos don't stutter?

I was completely unaware of this issue before and during the first couple days of using my 1070. I noticed absolutely nothing wrong and was blown away how well the 1070 handled 1440p at Ultra/Max settings in Overwatch, ARK, CSGO, WoW, and H1Z1 to name the games that i tested it in. I also tested 1080p movies, youtube playback and no stuttering for any of them, also streaming from chromecast to TV and nothing at all.. I then came across this thread because of its growing popularity and decided to see what LatencyMon would throw me. LatencyMon pretty much told me that the card is effected by this issue and my computer was having issues, but again I noticed nothing wrong. I installed the hotfix driver and ran LatencyMon again and this time it seemed to have cleared up big time but still with higher stats then what I was being told "should" be shown from this thread, but also again I did not notice any difference before or after the hotfix driver. So for my application, I get absolutely no stutter so I use it how it is and its been a very good upgrade, and just to clarify I am also using the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X purchased from another OCN member here who tested it and had no issue with it either, literally brand new.

Alright, because I'll be getting the Gaming X as well. How is overclocking?

Personally, I have not delved to deep into this because I really haven't had a reason to yet. I do run the MSI Gaming App in its Overclocked Mode which cranks the card to ~1994Mhz range (sometimes see over 2k) and it slays whatever I am playing at 60+ FPS which is all I need without having to hand OC it myself, but I do plan on seeing where I can take it this weekend using MSI Afterburner and will post the results.

Alright, guess I'll grab the 1070 Gaming X.

Make sure you are absolutely ready to make this decision! Personally, I have a very "dont look back, no regrets" type of mindset now that I really never used to have and my life improved dramatically because of it (not trying to rant). I was struck with the question.."Do i really need to spend almost $1000 to upgrade my computer gaming experience.." (New 1440p monitor, GTX1070, Zowie EC2A, New mousepad, sweet LED lighting behind my 3 monitors, upgraded fans for case) and the question was NO. I do not NEED to do it, but i WANTED to and that made the purchase feel so much better. I am pretty straight with my money, and have always questioned my buys after the fact. But when it came to this with computers being my main hobby and me spending so much time at work and at home on the computer, it was totally justifiable to myself. Needless to say, I am extremely happy with my upgrades and it just makes the experience so much better now for gaming. Also considering I fell off from the competitive, best stats best gameplay type to a more "try hard casual" competitive player. I prefer beautiful, ultra settings now at 1440p, smoothness and just overall immersion into the game now.

You won't regret the upgrade GRANTED you do not get an extremely crappy card but you always have options to RMA, sell, try something else out. But if everything goes as planned (and if your a huge geek like me) be prepared for something great! (i may take these things a little too serious, but whatever tongue.gif )

I don't really play games all that much anymore. I'm more of a Nintendo guy to be honest, but once in a while I'll binge on those sweet 60FPS+, 1080p+ and Ultra settings. I'm also very interested in computers, so I like to screw around with them. I'm actually paranoid about my components. I'll spend half an hour some days just staring at my PC, making sure my MOBO isn't flexing, etc.

Haha i know exactly what you mean, I do my weird things also... (lay on the floor next to my computer with the side panel off and adjusting each fans volt/rpm ever so slightly until I get that perfect pitch) My gf has spotted me doing this many times and she looks at me like im some kind of nut job but she can take a hike (lol).
