They didn't lied, they just have slow ram issues or something like that. The card does have 4gb, it's when it hits the last .5gb that is had problems.

Has NVIDIA ever fired shots against AMD like this?

 

Well. Nobody at Nvidia is going to cry over this. They are companies, not our buddies. Publicly traded companies, no less.

 

This is a fun move from AMD. I'm intrigued what the deal might be.

Nvidia is what most of us would call a pussy when it comes to their PR. AMD actually has a backbone to point fingers when someone screws up.

I'll still go with the 970, thank you though AMD. :)

 

 

idk I'd have to see what kind of deal. I love my reference 970, and I enjoy folding on a machine that takes about the same power as my laptop.

 

My laptop can draw ~300 watts. 

great to see people are not falling for this amd's dirty tactics

They did lie, they straight up advertised the device as having  56 more ROPs and more cache then it actually does.

and sure the 4gb may be there but only 3.5gb usable is kinda......

 

My point is NVIDIA does all this shit in the name of marketing and we have tons of people defending them and when AMD plays off it they get attacked and are apparently stooping so low?

 

Come off it x.x

Welcome to the world of marketing. 
 
"Our competition did something really shitty! come buy one of our cards! we didnt do that one thing that they just did!"
 
I love that when nvidia does shady as shit marketing its "just marketing, settle down" but when AMD plays off a nvidia marketing failure in the name of marketing the forum cries "childish!"

 

 

There's always been a double standard when it comes to internet buzz between AMD and Nvidia.  as the old proverb goes: "The nail that sticks out gets hammered down," and AMD love sticking out.

 

Plus, it's easy to Slam AMD because they have their hands on everything in the micro-processor industry and are 45 years old. They're a monolith that take few shots but when they do, they are precise. With Nvidia you say one critical thing and people flock to protect them like a mother defending their child. It's uncanny really.

If this is so I dislike AMD even more for leeching off of the succes of others by simply not doing anything interesting or innovative and point out wrongdoings in other people's ambitions then good job AMD. I dislike you even more.

 

This is very cheap on their part. And I don't believe a word of it.

i dont care. I will always take what has the best price/performance or feature i want. This is good for the consumer. The more battles between AMD and Nvidia better the price, performance and software will be.

Always going for cheap is NOT good for us consumers. It shifts focus from quality to quantity in the long run.

Calm down , Nvidia took a jab at their drivers.

It only normal for AMD to take advantage of this.

Yes, they can be equally bad for being dicks about it. One person's bad actions does not justify the bad behaviour of the other. And what AMD is doing now is uninspired and juvinile. I mean, the guy who posted the "4GB means 4GB" is even using memes. I mean really? You have a high position in a company and you use memes? 

 

If someone hits you in the face, and you stab him you will still go to jail.

they took a jab at thier drivers because amd drivers have been crap 100's of time's whereas nvidia has made a single mistake 

the amd:nvidia mistake ratio is 100*10^100:1

What nvidia did is crap too lol?

 

And their drivers have been mostly fixed.

 

This is just two companies sharing banter between them.

 

NVIDIA were assholes and AMD are being assholes okay?

People like identifying with "their" company because they feel like its personal. They forget that they are multi-million (or sometimes billion) dollar corporations that couldnt care less about you as a person. And most people cant remember more than a few product cycles back and forget how good AMD has been for so many years, just because they have had a few cycles of bad CPUs or hot GPUs, and totally forget how nVidia has had cards i could fry eggs on. Or the other way around for god knows how many other things.

 

People are stupid, companies are just around to make money.

 

Buy whats best for you, and ignore companies you dont agree with.

 

Stop white knighting fucking companies, they have lawyers for that shit.
