There's a 380x coming out...?
Think so, based on the 290x but faster and has the super ram
Oh it's Amd. Duh.
I'm brain dead today
Sent an email to retailer where I got my SLI GTX970's with regards to their policy on returning and upgrading to SLI GTX980's due to the 3.5GB vram issue.
At this stage returns are not being accepted as NVidia have not officially acknowledged that there was an issue with the product. If they do acknowledge there is an issue then cards may be accepted for return.
But they have acknowledged an issue with the product lol
I wonder if this aligns with Australian consumer law. ie/ 4gb advertised. 3.5gb is what was supplied. Not as described.
My desktop is sluggish as hell when I have a game in the background cause of the memory usage. It is a problem!
it is covered under the law as not sold as advertised (as long as that IS the case)
what the dribble down effect may be is cheaper prices...a fire sale on 970's perfect for the little 1920 crowd I think
It's not the 3.5GB RAM that is their problem, it is the other misreported specs (ROPs etc.) Which means they sold you a product that is different to what was advertised. You don't need nVidia to say anything the retailer has to refund you.
Pccasegear is refusing, they are making me fight with them over this.
I don't get it. I've spent thousands with these guys, give me a break.
They want to do it under the fact that i'm having performance issues, so they need to replicate the issues i'm experiencing. Preposterous.
You guys with 970s need to file a lawsuit like in the states
Lmao. I wouldn't know where to start
talk to a lawyer or make one of those daft online petitions.
I'm just going to make pccasegear take this damn useless card back, so i can enjoy my 980 which doesn't have similar flaws.
I would but then I remembered I don't give a fuck!
yeah their not too sharp on understanding legalities from my experience. I had to point them to legislation and they had to have their "legal department" have a look before they would do anything for me. I also have spent 7.5k+ with them. Replicating a fault by them also will prove to be somewhat futile. I gave them the specific hardware and said im damn sure if you try this particular combo you will experience my drama. long story short, many arguements later, gigabyte Au involvement and denial, 1 guy at PCCG did the right thing and tested exactly my combo, replicated fault and then they still begrudginlgly decided to make an exception and honour a warranty.
Dont step back. Know your rights and exercise them in good manner
Oh, I plan to. Don't you worry. Thanks for the feedback, good to know.
They are good but they can be a pain with this stuff, very defensive. Their argument was the price point of the item is appropriate for the card as it is.
Seriously? That means nothing to me. Now they're telling me it is advertised correctly. We'll see how we go with my response.
MSY have been awesome with me, really pleased with them.
