I assume because of how each card allocates memory - 2GB cards need to be more efficient with their VRAM than 3-6GB cards.
I think 2GB will be enough at 1080p for all but the most heavily modded games for the next 2-3 years. For 1440p, maybe a year or two.
This is why every forums market place is flooded with GTX 6XX for sale and there are wanted ads for HD 79XX lol.
not really man, not because of that and you've said that before.
exaggeration so calm down..
people wanting the GTX 7 series for one and they have somewhat fixed the Folding with Radeon issue.
but yes extra VRAM especially in a single GPU config can be a good thing but not the main or only reason.
smh,,,, your pro Radeon because of Bitcoin mining..Edited by malmental - 5/16/13 at 8:20pm
