    The buildings will all crumble.
    Nvidia will be forced to sell everything for pennies and their employee's will turn into homeless beggars; wrapped in old blankets and cardboard boxes wandering the streets for eternity wondering if things could have been different.

  4. Nvidia exposed, LMAO ... what people found out wasn't something new. It has happened before. Nor does it play a factor in every day scenarios.

    The 970 will continue to sell because it's a non factor for many many people. Don't like the issue then don't buy it. There is also a good chance of a revision of the 970.

    Not a lot. The card is still a big seller, and of those people returning it some are trading up to a 980. Of the returned cards...they'll be refurbished and onsold at a (small) discount. EVGA does a roaring trade with its trade in's from its Step Up program (B Stock, models suffixed -RX).

    I read a report [in spanish] last week that only about 1-2% were returned according to retailers; according to Jon Peddie Research the figure was about 5%.

    The only people that would care about this at all are the ones running 4k or greater resolutions as this is the only thing that you would need anything over 3.5GGB of RAM for anyway.

    As an owner, can confirm: don't give a **** really. It's an amazing card that plays everything I need just fine.
