Is there a better GPU choice than the Jetstream GTX 970?

-Best price/performance ratio
-Low power consumption
-4GB VRAM
-nice blue&black design

dude take 980
u pay more but u get real 4GB VRAM

Do you really need that 970 to play CoD, WoW and browse the 4chan? protip: you don't

Correction that's 3.5g of usable ram.

If you're going to go NVIDIA go with a 980
It's what I'm using and its basically perfect for any game at almost any resolution.
I was using AMD R9 290x before and to be honest it was a way better value, granted slightly less powerful than my 980.

There is 4 GB, it's just that you can't access both of them at the same time. As to whether or not that affects performance, I personally haven't seen any issues but people claim otherwise.

Stay new kiddos, I also heard from the internet that a black and blue dress was actually white and gold. Kek

>>601113445
GTX 970 is tremendous value right now, if you can afford it. So, "is there a better GPU choice"? If you can afford one, not really.

I do understand how it works, and there is a reason that people are so pissed off about it right now. NVIDIA are a bunch of greedy cunts trying to run a monopoly on the market and people are starting to wonder why their hardware that isnt that well built is so fucking expensive.
>>
>>601115635
>calls people new
>gets facts blatantly wrong

You can access it all at any time, but .5 gig of it is slow as fuck. And when the card starts using the last .5 gigs, the rest of the memory downclocks to match the lowest speed of active memory.

Man it must feel good to be so wrong. Here's a picture on the problem. Notice that you can't access the 7th and 8th at the same time, as they share a common line.
>>
>>601116036
I'm not saying Nvidia didn't screw up. I think people are focusing way too much on the VRAM issue in the wrong manner. The card has 4 GB of VRAM, but no one would have expected it to be designed the way it was. I think more the issue was the fact that no one knew, rather than it being an actual performance issue. But that's from personal testing. Not to mention the fact that they mistakenly or otherwise put the L2 Cache size and the ROP count for the 970 to that of a 980, when it isn't.

4gb VRAM
>>
>>601116690
>>601116205
Also I should add that both 3.5 GB and 0.5 GB of VRAM have the same speed per GB. So you would be incorrect in that as well. The main 3.5 GB has 7/8th the total speed and the 0.5 has 1/8th the total speed. For a collective 4 GB at ~220 GB/s. But again, you can't take advantage of that at the same time, because they can't be accessed at the same time.

>>601116690
You can though, it will just be without the l2 cache of the second block.

As per nvidia statement about the issue: "When a game needs less than 3.5GB of video memory per draw command then it will only access the first partition, and 3rd party applications that measure memory usage will report 3.5GB of memory in use on GTX 970, but may report more for GTX 980 if there is more memory used by other commands. When a game requires more than 3.5GB of memory then we use both segments."
>>
>>601117161
I also like how there are so many people that talk shit about how unreliable AMD is (as a whole), but in my personal experience AMD has served me fucking leagues better than NVIDIA has and for less money. Same goes for my friends. Granted maybe me and my friends always got lucky and had the best hardware from AMD, but I kind of find it hard to justify spending so much more money for slightly better performance in a piece that in my case I can guarantee will be broken in about a year.

>>601117729
Technically it can access both. The problem is that the first 7 have have priority of that of the 8th. Which means that if the first 7, specifically the 7th and 8th cannot share the same if the 7th is already fully utilizing it. As to how this could be the case otherwise would be impossible. The card just switches between them rapidly.

>>
>>601118853
Another statement from the leader: "However, the upper 512MB of the additional 1GB is segmented and has reduced bandwidth"

I'm pretty sure it can in fact access all of it at once, but at half the speed. Even if it can't, assuming you're right about the l2 switching rapidly, the end result would still be a net 50% decrease in the access speed of that last segment. So, same thing. And as we've seen in the past with issues like this, both in regards of RAM and cache and video memory in SLI, the lowest speed sets the pace for the rest, to remain in sync.

I just bought me a nvidia gtx 980 a few days ago. I fucking love it. Will overclock it eventually

The only problem i read about the Jetstream 970 is that after a certain time(probably heat related) it may change colors to white&gold.

Unless you buy a 290x or 780 which are better and cheaper.

So are Sega Genesis gaming systems but that doesn't make them better shit licker.

Because every case, PSU, mobo all are blue as well....... oh wait...... they aren't.

Depends on how much you can spend, also it does not have 4 gigs of vram. Any fag that even looks at the internet should know this. Buy a 980 unless you are cancer

I honestly don't have any problems with my 970

I can render lots of games at 1440p like BF4, and can play Skyrim with over 130 mods at 40-60fps

It's not as futureproof as I thought it would be, and Nvidia is a bunch of dirty jews for misrepresenting what the card is, but it still performs fine, and I'll wait and see what the next gen of cards will be from Team Red and Green as there are no better options out there right now
