I remember back in the day I had bought the 970 to play Shadow of Mordor.  Silky Smooth for a little while then turned into a choppy beast.   I researched at the time and learnt it had something to do with only accessing 3.5gig of the ram?  I stepped up and got a GTX 980, which didnt have this issue, and it made the game silky smooth for me again.
 
I cannot for the life of me find a story from back then that gave a technical explanation of what was going on.  Anybody know what I mean? Thanks
