The GTX 970 Total Fail?
Nvidia, that leading tech company who released it’s latest 900 series GPU’s over the last couple of months have (if you haven’t heard) come under much fire from it’s consumers lately, not only for it’s latest fail, namely the GTX 960 but for it’s failure to be honest with it’s GTX 970 buyers.
Before release Nvidia boasted that it’s GTX 970 would eat up many major game titles out there with it’s impressive stats, not least the 4gb of onboard memory, but several weeks after the 970’s release a pc geek revealed that after tests the GTX 970 was only capable of utilizing 3.5gb of it’s 4gb due to badly managed memory allocation, meaning 0.5gb of the cards ram was totally accessible.
Reddit and /g/ naturally blew up
But Nvidia are on the case, after releasing it’s initial apology a few days ago they have now said that within the coming days they will make a driver update available to all GTX970 users and this should fix the issue.
We’ll wait with baited breath, this is Nvidia afterall!
