    This is pathetic, no-one wanted a refund until this whole thing came to light, now suddenly the cards are no good any more

    The cards are the same as they were the day you bought them, same performance, same specs, just because you find out the specs are different now, doesn't change anything about the card you bought and the enjoyment you have had from it until now

    The specs aren't false.

    The card has 4GBs. You just can't utilize all 4GBs at the same time. Nowhere does anything say you can.
    Say hi to the next generation.

    I dunno about anyone else, but I care more about gaming performance out of a GPU than i care how large a bowl of triangle soup it can manage. As for being incapable of using that last half gig, well that's simple not true. It is on the card,and it runs. It runs at one seventh the speed, but it runs. And for having such a weird and brain-dead memory scheme, it still kicks ass on games and benchmarks, unless they are written to specifically use craptons of memory, in order to flush out this type of thing.

    So quite honestly, If i were you, the hassle of returning it, or the bother of exchanging it for an AMD card, with their higher power draw and hotter typical temps, with matching performance, isn't worth it, even if you are mortally offended by the idea that you have instead of the VRAM equivalent of a 55 gallon drum, you have a 50 gallon drum and a 5 gallon bucket.

    The R9 290
    >Performs better
    >Utilizes all 4GBs
    >Isn't overpriced

    Why would you want lower power draw?

    Please contact the point of purchase if you wish to exchange it for an alternative product like the R9 290X or upgrade to the 980. However, if you read and understand the details of the situation, and don't buy products on x numbers alone - on real world performance - the concern is overblown. We appreciate your concern but we feel the GTX 970 is a great performing, highly efficient card.

    This is already being discussed at the link provided here too:
