NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970/PCIe/SSE2 - Technical Information.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 is a graphics card for the PC manufactured by NVIDIA. It is part of the GeForce 900 series and was released in 2014. Here is some technical information about the GTX 970:

- GPU:
The GTX 970 uses NVIDIA's Maxwell GM204 GPU.

- CUDA Cores:
It has 1664 CUDA cores.

- Memory:
The GTX 970 comes with 4GB of GDDR5 video memory.

- Memory Bus:
The GTX 970's memory bus is 256-bit wide.

- PCIe:
The GTX 970 uses the PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) connector, which provides a high-speed connection between the graphics card and the motherboard.

- SSE2:
The graphics card supports SSE2 (Streaming SIMD Extensions 2), an instruction set extension for microprocessors introduced by Intel.

The GTX 970 was a popular choice for PC gaming in its day, offering good performance for gaming in 1080p and 1440p resolutions.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970/PCIe/SSE2, known issues and bugs.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 was a powerful graphics card, but it wasn't without its problems and known bugs. Some of the most common issues reported by users include:

1. 3.5GB memory controversy:
One of the most well-known issues with the GTX 970 was the memory controversy. NVIDIA advertised the card as having 4GB of VRAM, but in fact only 3.5GB had full bandwidth, while the remaining 0.5GB had significantly slower access. This resulted in performance degradation in some scenarios, particularly in games that require a lot of VRAM.

2. Thermal Issues:
Some users reported thermal issues with certain models of the GTX 970, particularly when the card was under heavy load. This led to overheating issues and possibly even crashes.

3. Driver Incompatibilities:
As with most graphics cards, driver incompatibilities can occur, which can lead to various issues including crashes, graphics artifacts, or poor performance.

4. Coil Whine:
Some users reported a high-frequency noise known as "coil whine" when the GTX 970 is under load. This can be seen as annoying, although it usually has no impact on performance.

5. Power Consumption and Energy Efficiency:
While not necessarily a flaw in the traditional sense, the GTX 970 has been criticized for its relatively high power consumption compared to other graphics cards of similar performance.

It's important to note that not all users experienced these issues, and many GTX 970 owners had a positive experience with the card. However, these are some of the most common issues and bugs reported with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970.
