    Those images prove nothing other than the scene changed.

    I'm actually not trying to prove anything. I have nothing to prove. My card does exactly what it was meant to, and does it very well. My only interest in this thread, is trying to make sure it eventually comes to an answer as to whether or not a problem actually exists, if we can even manage to do that. What exactly that answer is, has no bearing on my usage in any way. Folding@Home simulations don't push VRAM usage beyond 1GB at any time. Whether or not we can actually prove anything, depends on people approaching the "issue" with no preconceptions. If you've already decided that an issue exists and are determined to prove such, you're pretty well useless to this thread.

    Running a questionable "benchmark" on 2 cards and seeing different results doesn't prove the existence of a problem. It only proves that an issue may exist within the CUDA API that only affects the GTX970 for some unknown reason.

    I'm actually in complete agreement, at least concerning the validity of this benchmarks output.

    Screenshots prove nothing at all. The source makes no difference.

    Stuttering can be caused by too many different variables for videos to mean anything.

    This is where we had an issue in the previous thread.

    There were reports of this "issue" presenting itself in multiple games. I tested BF4 with more than 3.5GB of VRAM used and experienced no issues at all. Unfortunately, it's the only game I own that's capable of using more than 3GB of VRAM at any settings. The only way I get stuttering in BF4 is running the 64bit executable with Afterburner's OSD enabled and that happens regardless of memory load, but is easily fixed by disabling OSD.

    nvidia already acknowledged the problem in numerous support chats, mails and forum posts. if you're fine with your faulty hardware you can stop posting and be happy. hopefully, we will force nvidia fix it for you. you're welcome btw

    i do not agree.If is benchmark tested as it should there are pretty much accurate results.
    EDIT:if we compare GTX970/980

    Here is a preliminary result of kernel analysis of the last DRAM benchmark kernels that show bad performance.

    The Visual Profiler tool crashes a lot or makes the benchmark test crash a lot so I'm having a hard time gathering/saving results right now.

    Apparently, here's the NVIDIA response:
    http://www.pcper.com/news/Graphics-Cards/NVIDIA-Responds-GTX-970-35GB-Memory-Issue
    TL;DR
    Design choice - all is good.
    Going above 3.5GB will cost you 1 to 3% of performace and that's that.

    The thread started to become derailed when others started heading down the same path as the previous thread. Some of us were trying to keep things unbiased, as they should be, and look for answers to the question of whether or not a problem actually exists with these cards. So far, that hasn't actually been proven. It's only been proven that a questionable "benchmark" shows an unverifiable issue that could have other explanations.

    At this point, getting the thread back on topic is going to be nearly impossible.

    When this thread started, you appeared to be approaching things in a more acceptable and reasonable manor than in the last thread, which is the only reason this thread is still open.

    Pill didn't ruin the previous thread. The subject matter and approach to it are what ruined the last thread. You can't go into a forum and start throwing out accusations without any actual proof and expect the thread to remain open. The owner of this forum does hardware reviews. To permit unproven accusations to be paraded as fact makes the forum look bad and risks hardware makers refusing to submit products for review.

    he knows exactly, but is a nvidia fanboy, i know him from 3denter ;)

    i would be glad if someone could do that.

    it uses p2 state bios clock which is 3005mhz.

    According to that, no problem actually exists.

    Listen guys maybe there a problem

    Nvidia is aware the situation and they are working on it so theres nothing to get crazy about it.There things a lot more important in live than a video card.So at least i take it that way,i'm still playing with my card and have pleasure.

    If Nvidia find a problem they will fixed it,and thats all nothing more to say about it.Talk about it and get mad at others wont bring a fix so we just have to be patient and wait for a solution.

    Have fun guys,take care
