My single 480 can push 2560x1600, but runs out of GPU power as said before... back when i had them in SLi, they managed Metro 2033 maxed out at 1600p with around 40fps.

Here is a small video i made: ignore the rant at the beginning, i had an argument with someone at the time, and err ye...


This is a single card being trashed at a stupid high resolution....

Vram starts to take effect at 4k res with 1536MB.

Some other high res video's i have made.

Downsampled 1050p video:


In all video's, my 480's GPU horsepower is on show, not Vram!

In 1 to 2 years? I seriously doubt it. 1280x1024 was the most common res up until a year ago I believe. I say 1920x1080 stays the median for the next 3-4 years.

Even at 1920x1080, heavy bf3 multiplayer gamers should go with a 3GB card...2.5GB would be the minimum but expect to saturate the gddr from time to time.

How is what he's saying any different than what all the other "you absolutely need a billion gigs of VRAM" people are saying? They all got agreed with and told how they are making a good point that 2GB isn't enough for 1080p, but he says the same thing in different terms ("2.5Gb is the minimum" as opposed to "2Gb is not enough") and he catches crap for it? Jeez decide which side of the bandwagon you're on, OCN.

This whole topic is a little silly from my perspective but I just don't understand how it was determined that this guy needs to get called out amongst all the others saying equally extreme things.
