    Yeah, I can see the retailers have the logo yeah, but they can't have all have received new stock with these codes in? What they done with the old stock?

    There's not 2 different EANs or anything....

    now all my multi screen issues are sorted out, it was down to my anti virus software stopping the NVidia drivers, feckn bull guard caused load of issues so changed it to something else, now I love my Gigabyte GTX970 G1's even more ... could not be more happy with them.

    Try bitdefender, it just stays out of the way.

    Sure it's not all bells and whistles but it's small and works.

    It's not, it's an email code. I know, as my vendor has agreed to send me one :D

    Probably more due to my previous, now resolved issues.

    Sorry :eek3:

    Well that does it. I wish I had gone to a retailer instead of an e-tailer. I've sent them both an email asking for a code. For one shop I ordered the card 1 day before the action and for the other it is still within the 14 day return period. Please let me have a little bit of luck, just for once! :'(

    GTX980 (MSI gaming)
    Hi, I have been using the gtx970 now for a few weeks (MSI gaming) and while the card seems fine for 3D things I seem to be having trouble with normal desktop usage. For example many times when double click an icon to open a program its window does not fully draw. I either have to drag it off and back on screen or close and open the program again. Its beginning to get quite annoying.

    I have tried all three drivers for the card and none seem to help. Is anyone else having this issue or knows of a fix?

    I have come from a gtx295 to a gtx970 and the problem started with the 970.

    Any ideas?

    Umm, really not sure although that does sound more like a driver issues then a hardware one.

    I'd try using DDU then reinstalling it from scratch.

    I am replacing my HD7950 today with the Asus Strix GTX 970 I got yesterday once UPS drops off my H110.

    Besides going through control panel to remove all the AMD control center and drivers for my GPU is it still needed to run any of the other driver removers as used in the past or is that going to be good enough?

    Also any recommendation on the most stable driver currently? Seeing a decent amount of people staying with 344.16 I think it was.

    Didn't I read that the GM204 Maxwell chip on the 980 was already maxed out and there wouldn't be a Ti version?

    Or was that a dream?

    I can't comment on the 344.60 yet (will upgrade to them tonight as they apparently help fix some performance in Elite Dangerous) but from what I've read they have improved performance over earlier drivers.
    I definitely can say that performance improved for me once I went up from 344.16.

    GM204 is maxed with 980 .
    what they have would be a GM200/210 , much larger die with 384bus , who knows what it would be called (TitanII, 980Ti ) etc .
    the thing is can they do it on 28nm size ,cause if not then it will be a while .
    Whatever it is it will be a lot more than 980, price/performance wise .

    There wont be a such naming scheme, but there will be cards called GM210 that have a 384bit bus, much like 680 to 780 is. Gk104 vs GK110. The 980 is a fully unlocked GM204

    I think people rate them the G1, MSI Gaming, then the Strix.

    I got the Strix as it was the last available ship/sold from Amazon and the difference between the 3 are slight at best.

    I'm happy with my purchase so far put it in last night once I got my H110 also.

    hmm, why, because G1 overclock better and comes with some free cables ?

    Anyway the G1 is way more expensive, I don't need to invest 60$ for just 100 mhz...

    I got my 970 G1's not long after they came out with in 2-3 weeks of release, I had to pay an £40 premium extra on each card due to demand, although after reading through the guru3d reviews of the G1 970 and G1 980 I decided the G1 970 was the sweet spot performance/cost, these G1's as far as I can see have custom build board with stronger parts over the ref design so for me its money well spent regaurdless of the total £80 premium I paid for the cards. loving the G1's worth every penny quality products as are MSI and ASUS cards.
