Every time I head to PAX I am amazed with how CRAZY the fans get of ths eSport championship. And industry speaking, NVIDIA is really taking it to AMD. Funny how you don't hear much about AMD like we used too. If it wasn't for the consoles, then I really wonder where they would be.

I'm personally never buying nvidia parts again. I bought a shield and a 970 and have had pretty major issues with both. The who 3.5gb debacle with the 970 and the MYRIAD of issues with the crappy tablet(wifi issues, random restarts, cracks in the casing and now the fire hazard battery) are enough to swear me off nvidia forever.

Before people even knew about the 3.5GB instead of 4GB's everyone was praising the card for its price to performance ratio, yes it's sleazy that they hid that but it doesn't mean it's a bad card or a "major issue."

I also own a 970 and have to say that despite the 3.5+ 0.5 gb issue, the GPU is still the best bang for buck for any 1080p gamer and will hold its value on SH markets far better than the AMD 380 or 390, since 970 SLI is more common than 980s

See I just don't understand that mentality. The idea that if a company makes a couple mistakes you write them off forever. Why limit your options due to some misplaced loyalty or disloyalty to certain companies? Do you believe AMD has never made mistakes?

I got a 970 and LOVE it... If 3.5 makes that much of a difference to you then sorry to break it to you but 4gb isnt much more lmao.

Ehhhhhhhhhh...I got a 970 myself the 3.5gb thing sucks sure, but it's not really a problem. You'll peak out the 970s performance before you even hit 3.5gb of vram. It's still an excellent card.

Besides that, I think nividia's quality speaks for itself. Their current line up of cards is almost a year old and in a lot of cases they are better than amd's current line up. That speaks volumes. Only saving grace with AMD atm is HBM memory which Nividia's next line up will have hbm2 anyway which is a infinitely better version of hbm.

Hopefully this hardware wont overheat!

Kenshin_BATT0USAI845d ago

That would be amd, not nividia. lol

Buying a gsync monitor was the best decision I ever made for gaming. No hardware upgrade I've ever done has had as much of a dramatic and an across-the-board impact on the smoothness and responsiveness of my PC games as the Gsync monitor has.

100% concur with this. As an example Witcher 3 was one of the first games to really test my hardware, by dropping below 60 frames at times (mind you after the patches it pretty much stays on 60) - but I wouldnt notice it at all because there is zulch screen tearing on Gsync: The only reason I did notice the drop in frames was because I have a frame counter on the top left corner on my screen. So in a way this technology also extends the lifespan of my video card as I no longer have aim for a constant smooth 60 frames (though I am somewhat of a framerate whore myself, I do like to see on display it hitting a constant 60).
