    Reducing performance compared to competition must be one of the crappiest ways to drive HW sales.

      Folding at home is affected as well.

      FAHbench should show the difference.

        I don't agree with original statement, but will be devils advocate. Cards with tons of VRAM are nto affected, they are current generation cards.

        On my 780TI with 3gigs of VRAM downgrade to older version of driver made all the difference in the world for Deus Ex and DOTA2. Especially for Deus Ex.

          Using all available memory is good not bad. Only using more than available is bad. So there was only improvements to be seen in the benchmarks you made.

          So they are making latest generation faster at the expense of older hardware.
