NVIDIA Developing Software Fix For GeForce GTX 970 Memory Issues

Category: Video Cards
Posted: 05:56PM

With the recent launch of the GeForce GTX 970, users were reporting a drop in performance with their cards. NVIDIA has come out and acknowledged that the problem is related to the way the 4GB of VRAM is divided, causing a performance drop when reaching 3.5GB of VRAM used. NVIDIA employee PeterS took to the NVIDIA forums to tell users that a driver update is in the works that will address the performance issues, stating that the driver will "tune what's allocated where in memory to further improve performance." He went on to add that users who no longer want their cards should "return it and get a refund or exchange. If you have any problems getting that done, let me know and I'll do my best to help." The driver won't be able to give users access to the full 4GB of VRAM, but should increase performance when using large amounts of memory.
