Default Nvidia still working on 8800 texture slowdowns

IT SEEMS THAT Nvidia's Geforce 8800 series of graphics cards suffers random slowdowns, and this can be particularly problematic for owners of the Geforce 8800GTS 320MB, the cheapest 8800 out there. The problem lies in fact that the G80 GPU has some trouble with texture memory management. In many unrelated cases, this bug starts leaving textures in video memory and system memory, causing the board to run out of texture memory. Once you run out of memory for textures on your graphics card and system, you will experience a lot of swapping with textures on a hard drive, and that is recipe for disaster, at least as far as framerates are concerned.

No kidding! How long ago did the 8800 release to the market?
Sooner or later NVDA will be another MS; use my product or shut up

At least I did not make much contribution to NVDA except taking some money from their stock.
