    No they are doing nothing, bar sending a few people out to various forums to all tell us the same thing "in my opinion its a great card, we are so proud of it " blar blar blar

    Even the tone of this PeterS bloke, the nVidia dude who said he'd personally help with refunds (lol) and a driver fix was being planned to address the way the 0.5gb was used has changed his tune and tone now
    He even edited his original post and removed all traces of the pm me for help getting a refund line..... what a :wanker:

    I have read on the most popular tech forum here in the UK that nVidia have specifically told retailers NOT to accept returns for these cards, as there has been no mis-selling. ROPs and L2 cache were not advertised at the point of sale.

    Yes, because his comment along the line of... if you live in (North?) America, PM and I'll help you out...was even worse, and potentially infuriating for any NV customer NOT living in NA.

    "I have read on the most popular tech forum here in the UK that nVidia have specifically told retailers NOT to accept returns for these cards"

    OMG REO! I know that song "
    Heard it from a friend who, Heard it from a friend who, Heard it from another you been messin' around"

    Peter also said.. go ahead and hate on us we can take it. See some are doing just what he said.

    How can you expect others to be honest when you wont be?

    As for Peter leaving out PM.. this is what is posted at the end "I realize that you may be looking for other options with your retailers and board manufacturers. If you need help, let me know.

    UPDATE: Since there was some confusion, I updated this post to clarify my comments about drivers, other options and added some relative links.
    --Peter"

    Guess what.. I can send PM any time to him or others. So how can we believe this guy and some others when they TWIST some words to fit what they want to say.

    My card runs super does not suffer from these problems. Whats written and what I got.. lol I dont care. It does great and runs better then the R 290 that is a hot jet card. Great card just to hot and loud for ME!

    NV didnt make your card those that did say there is nothing wrong with it.. YEAH THEY SIAD..didnt hear this from some guy that heard it from some other that posted.. pffft. You can go to GIGABYTE and ASUS and MSI and just CALL EMAIL and ask. So Nvidia is helping. They cant give back what they didnt sell. There is so much more going on here then..its all NV fault. The partners all have a say. Strange how MOST if not all leave this out. They just post "Its ALL NV's fault".

    Its TEXT relax..not personal in any way.

    Thanks for the free thread bump, since you didn't look at either graph :p. The Shadow of Mordor one demonstrates the issue perfectly (and is not a game fault), and the Battlefield 4 one is even worse there.

    To me I think both a driver and a BIOS update could help on this issue but that depends on what game you are playing.

    Well I contacted that AMD rep who was saying on Twitter that they're doing a promotion for GTX 970 owners. I was redirect by him to some XFX rep and I'm waiting for a reply to see what they're going to offer.

    If they can offer a nice 290X (as in their best cooled model) for my 970 I might take it, it saves me the effort of dealing with mail-in rebate bull**** which I would have had to do otherwise if I wanted to get 290X directly from the same shop I got my GTX 970.

    AMD must be losing money with every sale on that price.

    Suppose it depends if they are selling cards they wouldn't have otherwise sold, and also pulling nvidia owners to the red side for life / good few upgrades
