sgtmatt1 Posted January 12, 2008 Report Share Posted January 12, 2008 (edited) NEWS FLASH: A lot of people noticed the stuttering of the 8600M GT (And other cards from the 8-Serie) There were some "Stuttering Fixes" on the Notebookreview: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=172717 Those "tweaks" helped a little for most of the 8600M GT users but now Nvidia comes out that there is a problem with the GPU's People from the Notebook Review forum had contact with Nvidia: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=207594 " Hi everyone.. I have now together with "blackbird" from here, found the problem many of us are suffering from when it comes to 8600m and performance, bad gameplay experience and unrelated slowdowns. Sit tight now... this news wont be good. As it is today the stuttering/slowdown/low fps or whatever its been called is a Nvidia error with not too much bright future. The problem occours at random 8xxx series cards without any logical relation to system OS or configuration. To put it simple, its the 8xxx series gpu that randomly screws up managing texture memory, which means it leaves textures in the RAM both on the video card and in physical mem, which eventually with in 10-30seconds will become full, and your machine will slowly choke to death = slowdowns. Nvidia does know this problem and have says to be working on a fix, however! last time they told the public it would be fixed soon was in July 2007 :/ yet we havnt seen any or anything near a fix. So basicly most of us got an expensive laptop wich is broken, so decide people.. wait for the maybe very late nvidia fix, or claim your money back and go buy something with an ATI mobility card instead, because they are by far at the top of the game right now. Nvidia has screwed up BIG time! I could continue for a long time explaining the problem, how it all fits together and such, but instead I advice you all to read the 2 articles below (quite short) and watch the youtube video last. Those 3 will give the preciese explanation of wich many in here couldnt understand. article1: http://keznews.com/20018=Nvidia_pinp...se__delays_fix article2: http://techreport.com/discussions.x/12993 Video: Good luck everyone. And thanks to Blackbird for helping me out." This is the topic that is started on NBR (NEWS ANNOUNCED BY thomaskc.dk from the Notebook Review Forum). So, Let's hope that Nvidia will release a fix soon... Edited January 12, 2008 by sgtmatt1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
