I bought a 970 on my new build and ya'll starting to make me feel riped-off.

I had previously checked the benchmark tests for it and it seemed to have a decent performance to cost ratio.

nigger, look at some gaming benchmarks before you talk out of your ass, a 970 is equally or faster than a 290x (both non oc versions of course)

They were always gimped. Nvidia lied about it and hoped no one would find out before the next gen were released.

lol, fucking idiot.

>>595688907
regardless of the overkill or not, 4gb is going to be the new standard, and the majority of the community is still on 1080p.

plus, purests will continue to dump money to maintain 1080p max settings zero dips, especially if you're running 120+ hz and/or DSR.

Probably the 295X2 or 980. Titans are shit.

All of these contradicting benchmark results. Having myself a chuckle. Benchmarks are basically useless.
>>
>>595690513
Whoever is telling you the 970 is the best GPU on the market is retarded.
295X2 is basically 2 290X's in 1 card. They're about $750 ea.

It doesn't matter to most people because the 970 still performs as it does on benchmarks made prior to this controversy. People bought the 970 based on those benchmarks, and as long as the 970 continues to meet those benchmarks, I'll be happy with it.

>>595690175
The 295x2 is the best GPU out at the moment, but you'll only need one unless you're running games at stupid resolutions with insane graphics. SLI titan blacks would be very powerful too.

If you can hang on a couple of months AMD are releasing their 300 series which are rumored to be pretty good, especially the 390x

Keep in mine having 2 of them means they will probably need to be watercooled. And you're going to need a giant PSU (~1500W)

>>595691085
Aw ok.
>>
>>595691519
Uhh probably not. That would basically be 4 290X's crossfired. They start to run into hitching when you have that many GPU's.
One would be sufficient. Spend the money from the extra 295X2 on a 4k Monitor instead to view all the glory.

No and no

But to be truthful I have not tried to use the card to its potential yet, only run basic games like League and Planetside2. I'll try ray tracing rendering and see how it performs then.

I kind of bought it with future generations of games in mind and I'd be very sad if it didn't deliver what was promised by the benchmarks.

>Whats matters in this discussion

The 970 is completely in line with price vs performance ratios of other nvidia cards. If you prefer Nvidia, this means you weren't ripped off, you got the performance you paid for.

http://techreport.com/news/27721/nvidia-admits-explains-geforce-gtx-970-memory-allocation-issue
>We understand there have been some questions about how the GTX 970 will perform when it accesses the 0.5GB memory segment. The best way to test that is to look at game performance. Compare a GTX 980 to a 970 on a game that uses less than 3.5GB. Then turn up the settings so the game needs more than 3.5GB and compare 980 and 970 performance again.
----

The other point of contention is comparing the card versus its competition, the R9 290x.

If you bother taking a look at multiple benchmarks at multiple resolutions, you will clearly find that the 970 pulls ahead in some benchmarks and the 290x pulls ahead in others. While the 290x has slightly better performance overall in 4k scenarios, BOTH cards under perform in 4k.

SLI / Crossfire comparisons are stupid, imo. Both are annoying as fuck to deal with (drivers issues on new games, poor scaling, etc). You really shouldn't jump into the world of multi gpu's if you aren't knowledgeable (plus have lots of money to burn).

>you're an nvidia fanboy
As of today, yup. I have a nvidia 770 which I bought after having two amd 6870's, before that a ati 4870, and before that an nvidia 8800gts. As of right now, my opinion leans towards nvidia. They have more image quality settings and (in my experience) slightly better drivers. BOTH companies have a long history of shitty drivers though.

All of the idiots here who have a superficial knowledge of computer hardware are hilarious, especially given that >50% of you are running on laptop and can only play LoL or tf2 or some dating sim.
