GTX 560 Ti futureproof? - Page 2

post #11 of 82
Why don't you come up with GTX 560 Ti 1GB and GTX 560 Ti 2GB benchmark instead of checking out 2 differents GPU ?

I'm pretty sure I did see my Vram usage go up to 1.6Gb last day.
Now tell me, the 1Gb would be able to achieve the same as the 2Gb ?
It will stutter, or at least have some slowdowns because it has to fetch from the system memory instead of the onboard GPU's memory.

I gotta admit I loled very hard when I saw that you paid a premium for your 580 too and you said :oh stop with the vram, vram is negligable,


More Vram = more futureproof.


EDIT : I did play BF3 on High with AA/AF maxed and I had stutter with the 1Gb version.
Slapped a GTX 560 2GB with Ultra and AA/AF and no stutter at all.
(I did had somehow low fps thought, that's why I slapped a second in there.)

What? Name one game that the 560ti wont run maxed out? http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/330

If SLIed 2x 560ti will max you out any game on the market currently today at 1080p no problem.... stop talking nonsense and do some research...

A single Ti will struggle to maintain a playable FPS.
It will run the game just fine thought, you will want a second one if you are looking for smooth gameplay.

I currently have a 1gb 560Ti and it will not max out Batman Arkham City (@1ghz core) and it won't max out Metro on a 1080P monitor. Other then that L4D2, BFBC2, Dirt 2, and JC2 can all be maxed out and run smoothly.

A 560Ti will last you for a while but it depends on what you consider playable. No it will max out every game for years to come but that doesn't mean that it won't be playable. I can't max out Batman but I can still easily play it with AA and extreme tessellation. These cards are incredibly powerful and granted games are becoming more and more demanding but what kind of company would put out games which can't be toned down so that you can play them on an average computer. A 560Ti is better then 90% of all computers that are out there considering the enthusiast market is tiny compared to the OEM market that doesn't have cards any where near that powerful. Go look on Dell's website and a good bit of them don't even have dedicated video cards. Game developers need to cater to those markets as well since those make up a large portion of their sales. In conclusion the term "future proof" is complete garbage because it depends solely on what kind of game play you want. If you want to max everything out you're going to need a 580 or whatever the flagship card is that comes out every year. If you want to be able to just be able to play the game with acceptable frame rates and not worry about having every video option turned all the way up then you a 9800gt will most likely still suffice for the games of today.

oh yes, i admit that i fell into the whole vram bs as well. the 580s, wether it be the 1.5gb or the 3gb yield frames nearly identical, and if they arnt they are usually inside the margin of error, even in surround.

non reference 3gb 580 vs 1.5gb reference 580
1309163052zcB17FAWTk_7_4.gif

and in SLI
1309163052zcB17FAWTk_7_4.gif

unable to find 2gb sli 560 ti benches that specify it as 2gbs only the 1gbs, even on guru. so ill give it to you on the 560 ti, think that the 560ti and the 6950 may be the only cards that this applies to because the gpu is actually capable of utilizing the 2gbs of vram. but it still dosnt excuse the fact that most 1gb cards in crossfire or sli will trump a single 2 or 3gb gpu at half the price.

theres another review i was looking for with the 460 768mb sli that yields higher frames in.

It just depends on what you're standard is. 8800gt/9800gt card is still viable for playing todays games in low-medium settings in most cases. I upgraded from my 9800gt because I was intrigued by directx 11 and I was a big wow fan at the time.

The majority of games won't make a big graphical leap until the next console generation debuts in the next 1-2 years.

You'll be good for 3-4 years unless you demand max settings.

A GTX 560 is able to max out nearly all games. It's just games like BF3 you might have to turn a few settings down, but it's fully capable of running high settings, which is more than fine. How that's not "future proof" is beyond me.

It cannot max out BF3 (or BC2), Metro 2033, Just Cause 2, Crysis (or Warhead), GTA4, among others at a proper framerate. How is that future proof?
