    this guy will beg to differ ?

    It's choking hard in Watch Dogs. Whenever there is any vehicle use the GPU usage drops to 80% or significantly lower. And I can't figure out why. It can't be CPU limited, I know that since with the GTX 970 I had no issues and it's at 4.4GHz FFS.

    And not being able to overclock for unknown reasons is pretty horrendous, I bought it with the assumption that it could get a minimal overclock, but after stressing it further I've found the maximum it can do without increased voltage is 1090MHz at best. Further stress tests may show it to be lower.

    It has awkward issues which I've never encountered in the past. I knew about the thermal throttling and I know others who have 290X cards but none of them have ever told me about random throttling or being unable to adjust the voltage.

    No performance problems here..Dying Light used 3823MB of VRAM and it was perfectly smooth.Go troll somewhere else.

    I do not see how he is trolling.

    There are videos of people playing Dying Light showing the 3.5G problem, you say you have none, simple enough to prove, record your findings and show us. V-Sync off, show FPS and Frame Times.

    There are a few apologists in this thread, you aren't contributing to the topic at hand.

    He is using 8GB RAM and the game has memory leak making 8GB of RAM not enough.The devs are working on a fix.

    i must be one of the lucky people.... In shadows of mordor maxed out @ 1080p it sits right around something like 3548mb pretty much the whole time, yet im not getting a single stutter or any noticeable slow down. Vsync off and fps limit at 60 and it stays at 60 the entire time and is smooth as can be for me

    and Ive seen ppl mention that watch dogs stutters too.. which to me seems kind of pointless to mention as that has been a big complaint since its release. But I played a little bit of bad blood last night for the first time with my 970 and that was even fine for me. My old card wasnt anywhere near powerful enough for watch dogs and stuttered and gave me pop in all the time, cant say the same thing with running the 970, it was also smooth and stutter free

    Yeap, Shadow Of Mordor also ran butter smooth here at 1600P/Ultra.

    Boris is clearly a very smart fellow who has done some great work, but his answer here is not logical.

    If all cards show allocation of the last 300-500M as being remapped to system RAM and thus are slower, and if that is the supposed explanation for the 970 slowness- then why did NVidia accept this giant pie in the face?

    NVidia is clearly not going to be in the category of "casual people are incompenent".

    No disrespect to Boris, but I'll take NVidia's answer.


    You and others keep repeating it is flawed. What is the flaw?

    I do not see what that has to do with what he is trying to show. But still post up your video, it would be the great detractor don't you think?

    The original thread was shut down because it lacked any evidence at all. The only "evidence" ever posted in that thread were gameplay videos claimed to be 1080P that were well in excess of 1080P. Some of those supposed 1080P videos were upwards of 4K. You can't go around making claims with no supporting evidence and expect a thread to stay open.

    It is nice of you to thrown around accusations though.... Really shows how little you actually know about what goes on. Claiming that Hilbert supports NVidia's behavior is rather absurd....

    That's kinda funny somebody using themselves as a source for their claims.
    Kinda reminds me of Charlie Douchebag over at SemiAccurate.

    Runs great at 5k(dsr) here.

    Battlefield 4 is very playable @ 5k w/max settings with internal resolution set to about 115%.

    Fps might be somewhat low but very playable.
