    Definitely better than being buried in a monolithic thread. :wink3:

    Damnit, hurry up Zotac.

    Hmmm, I wonder if that's the cause of some of the issues on my GTX 1070. Don't want to take the heatsink off to look, however. And ASUS still haven't provided a firmware yet anyway.

    Hopefully that's the issue. As I'm currently happy with the performance of the GTX 1070, but I hate almost everything else about the card. Enough so that I've been thinking about getting a much slower AMD card so that my day to day activities aren't so horribly impacted.

    Regards,
    SB

    Are you at stock memory clock? It seems to be--as the article says--mainly an issue with overclocking. I posted about it on this board a while ago because I was confused as to why I was seeing a checkerboard at the so-called "safe starting memory overclock". But yeah, not a big deal really (certainly not what some of the lunatic fanboys in the Guru3d comments are making it out to be), especially as this card is a bit bandwidth heavy to begin with. Still, I'll be happy to have the extra headroom if MSI comes through with a fix.

    I made an entire thread about it in the PC forums. I've discovered more issues since then, but haven't bothered to post about them.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it looks like mine uses Samsung memory. Bleh, so it is just crappy drivers then.

    Yeah, stock clocks, seems the issue stems from a wrong BIOS voltage calibration for the memory, the voltages seemed to change too slowly, so that the memory was undervolted when changing to higher P-states. The new BIOS should fix that.
