Months after gamers discovered that Nvidia's GeForce GTX 970 utilizes an unconventional split memory design that can affect gameplay in certain scenarios, the situation finally seems to be coming to a head. The controversy moved beyond online forums late last week, as online retailers began offering full or partial refunds to unhappy GTX 970 buyers and Nvidia was slapped with a class action lawsuit alleging false advertising.
PCWorld's massive graphics card roundup has in-depth performance details about the GTX 970 and a slew of other GPUs, and it even has alternative buying suggestions if more memory is important to you. (Hint: You'll want an AMD Radeon R9 290X.)
