I know this is old and dead, so sorry for that, but I have 2x760 2gb in sli on a 1440 monitor and it runs every game fine, without a hiccup smile.gif

On what settings? Asking because I ran 770 tri sli years ago. 2 770s at 1440p did run but on lower settings newer games anyway. 2gb is eaten up really quick

Sorry, but I'm guessing by your usage of the plural form 'years ago', that it was at least 2 years ago when you ran these 'tests'.

Which games are you claiming that you ran out of VRAM on more than 1 year ago on your 770s?

Just one year ago I saw a comparison - even at 1440 - between the 2gb and 4gb models, and the difference was....... practically zero.

They ran out of grunt on the chips before the vram ceiling became an issue.

I'm still seeing that even to this day on my 760 sli set-up.

Can you clarify which games 'years ago' a 770 sli wouldn't cut it?

Even today I'm running a 760 2gb sli set up and getting playable frames on every game. That's at 1440 @100hz....

Yes june 2013.

You did not answer what settings you can run games at?

Tri sli was just for fun, I only gamed with the 2. I like to play everything on ultra usually with msaa .fxaa or whatever looks better, at its highest or close too.

I'm busy occing the crap out of my 980tis atm.

Let's see.

Skyrim
Bf4
Gta4
Cod
Asc4
Crysis 3
Tomb raider

All used more than 2gb with maximum settings @1440

Hell I'm pretty sure I hit a wall with skyrim and Crysis and at 1080p under maximum settings.

I think we have different expectations. I'm paying a premium to pc game
I want 60 fps+ without compromising graphics quality. Just didn't do it for me.

I switched to 770 classy x2 4gb I think.

Games like unity, witcher 3, gta5 just wont cut it on 2gb. Nothing is future proof anymore with how technology is being released. Even my 980tis will not last long. I will be jumping on the pascal train.

Yes, they will be using more than 2gb, because you had more than 2gb for them to use.

I think we're conflating issues a little bit here redface.gif The reason my cards can't run everything maxed at 1440 in 2015 isn't because of the VRAM. The chips hit the ceiling of what they can do before VRAM limits it, apart from a few games which just have stupidly high res textures anyway.

For example, I run a fully texture modded Skyrim @1440 and constantly hit 100fps. That's with 4xAA as well.

And saying 'nothing is future proof anymore' is kinda pointless. Nothing has ever been future proof. That's always been the case and will continue to be the case smile.gif

I've had these cards for 2 years now and will be looking to update them soon - 2gb VRAM has served me perfectly well in that time, but I will be looking to get more on my next build thumb.gif

Apples and oranges lol

Too true. I mean to say lately stuff has been released alot faster. To me anyway. Haswell and refresh then skylake

Will you be going for pascal?
