the 3GB card is slower... wink.gif
Testing For Memory Interface Limitations: 1920x1080
post #1822 of 3662
Thread Starter 
Even the GTX 670 with 256-bit was slower than the puny 7870, so it's hard to take that bench as something conclusive.

Is there even such a thing as "too much VRAM"? wink.gif

I just looked at a few reviews and the 3Gb is even slower at times than the 2Gb version..... I guess I will be better off with the 2 Gb version.

The 3gb card was 2-3FPS slower, if you look on the first page of that review, there are 7 660 Ti's, some of them are clocked higher, some lower. Some may boost higher idk, but I'm guessing that would account for the 2-3 FPS. It would help if they mentioned which card they used against the 3gb.

Now if I was gonna shell out on two cards, and the difference in price between 2gb and 3gb is small enough to not matter, why not go for the 3gb? If the review was even accurate in SLI are you really going to miss those 2-3FPS? Maybe, but not as much as you would miss the vram if you start hitting your limit.

Now I don't deny the bus limitations, but I have hit 2.6gb usage in modded skyrim and still maintained over 60FPS.. The other 99% of games I play stay below 2gb though tongue.gif

yes, there actually is.... too much VRAM in a few cards make them all run slower, I have seem more comparisons than this..

indeed... that's the way to go with the 660 Ti...
they say the GTX 670 4GB model is a waste too and would have been better as a 3GB model.
my 670 and my 660 Ti are both 2GB models.

do I need to go find my posting about 'memory allocation'...?

Everything running on stock voltage, fan profile made by me - 24 degrees idle, maximum 58 degrees full load in benchmark. Fan never goes above 44%.
How the heck did you get that graphics score? I have a 1320 Mz Kepler boost and 7366 MHz effective memory and I only get like 9800 graphics score.

@agoniizing

I got this GPU score with stable 1280 MHz clock for 90% of test. Your card is probably downclocking itself during test due to power usage or temps. Now with my 1346 MHz core clock I have even more wink.gif And it also depends on drivers.

Well I know its not my temps, my max temp is around 63C. What score do you get with Heaven 3 max 1080p?
