[TCA] Nvidia Settles Graphic Card False Advertising Class Action Lawsuit - Page 14

Those things you mentioned should not really effect the bandwidth that much, it is just the card architecture that is crap. And i used GPU-Z to check the VRAM the card uses. I only noticed alot of stuttering in GTA V which used 3,4 GB but could have been the drivers.

But was perfectly happy with the GTX 970 right until i heard about the Nvidia cover-up lie. and then i BIOS hacked it so it can run 1582+ mhz and overclocked the memory to about 1995 mhz (about 10 GHz) and then i didn't really notice the stuttering anymore after that smile.gif

But now i don't thrust Nvidia, and just now it seems they can't even figure out how to make drivers (last few months drivers), so when Radeon releases Vega then i'm selling my card.
Well Nai himself even said that for tests to be accurate, you shouldn't be using the gpu you're testing. So I'm not sure there are any grounds to claim that the card might as well be 3GB. A better claim would be that the card did not have a true operational 256-bit memory bus. It couldn't do a complete read or write operation via 256 bits. It had to be 224 of one and 32 of the other.

Could be why, but didn't go to much into the details i just saw the results as they were. wink.gif

Well, that 's dragging it a bit too far...butterfly effect and all, someone abiding to this Lorenz-ian logic could claim that everything affects us somehow, thus everything is our business...

Kinda like how you driving your car influences my Asthma and thus is part of my business? Seems pretty out there to say something like that.

And then you suddenly find out how much responsibility we actually have as humans beings. We have to become aware of what we do and the influence we have. Every time we give money to McDonald's instead of say organic food, we are supporting the whole line that allows the production of junk food and failing to support a healthy food production system.

Same goes for gaming. We can't be perfect but we can strive to make it better.

AMD has done its fair share of negative things as well, but not so much for the market to be 80/20 in favor of nVidia. If we can work to make it 50/50 it's better for all of us. Especially right now that nVidia is taking advantage of their customers, we have a good reason to do it.

But you're often seen going out of your way to convince people AMD GPUs are crap and that Nvidia is the only company to buy GPUs from...

maybe you should look at the positives instead of negatives ?

Nvidia makes fast efficient GPUs, thats why they have 80%

No they have 80% because of illegal market practices...
