Shocking Interview with Nvidia over the GTX 970 Issues


Over the past while we have been talking a lot about Nvidia, from the release of their new GTX 960 GPUs to mobile G-Sync and Nvidia's false specifications for their GTX 970 GPU. This article will be looking further into the latter.

Nvidia has initially lied about the specifications of the GTX 970, with the GPU having 1792KB of L2 Cache instead of 2024KB, 56 ROPs instead of 64 and two separate partitions of GPU VRAM on at full speed (3.5GB) and one which is said to operate at much lower speeds (0.5GB).

Here is a table showing Nvidia's Original Specifications compared to it's read specifications.


 Nvidia GTX 970Corrected GTX 970
GPU28nm GM204-20028nm GM204-200
CUDA Cores16641664
L2 Cache2048KB1792KB
Memory Bus256-bit256-bit
Memory Size4GB4GB (3.5GB + 0.5GB)
Memory Bandwidth224 GB/sec196 GB/sec + 28 GB/sec


Nvidia have screwed up as they have not fully disclosed the true architecture of the GTX 970, and things may have just turned for the worse for Nvidia as an interview with an Nvidia Engineer claims that they have know about it the whole time.

Please watch the whole interview below, what it shows is pretty hard to believe. 


I hope you guys had as much of a laugh as me and TTL did. Obviously this is a work of satire and not a real interview with an Nvidia Engineer. You can read more about the Nvidia GTX 970 controversy in out article about it here

That video was pretty funny.. not about Nvidia but the dude's laugh

Also found a typo: You put GTX 9960. Supposed to be 960 in first sentence.. unless you're hinting at a super uber 960Quote
