FPS takes a HUGE hit going from 1920x1080 to 2560x1440. 1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600 pixels, 2560 x 1440 = 3,686,400 pixels that is 1.78 times more or 78% more pixels your GPU is tasked with rendering. VRAM is very important but horsepower is nearly as important. i've had my Shimian for almost 14 months now. i benchmarked heavily the difference going from 1080 to 1440. i originally had a single GTX 670. after getting the Shimian i eventually added a second for SLi as i was getting 40 fps and below in graphic heavy games like BF3, Far Cry 3, ect at max settings.
here are my Heaven 3.0 before/after scores:
