|There have been some problems reported with certain GeForce GTX 1070 cards. After further investigation it became apparent that the issues like flickering and poor memory overclocking results on the memory sub-system are graphics memory related. GeForce GTX 1070 cards fitted with Samsung memory do not have any issues, however some manufacturers have or switched towards Micron chips, and these are the culprit of the reported issues. Especially during overclocking of the graphics memory problems will appear fast with bad results like checkerboard patterns.|
if micron memory is being used for other gtx cards using gddr5 (non X), we could see problems in cards like the gtx 1060, 1050, and 1080ti too.
