    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    I'm with you on that. I had a 970 and had about the same results. Mine was an open box Asus Strix that I think the last owner overclocked to much. It ran great in Far Cry 4 but started to get empty polygons and other distortions. I might buy a replacement or wait to see what AMD is going to...
