post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am going to be purchasing a 590GTX and it states it has 3gb of vRam ,now my question is does this get split between the 2 video chips??

As this is the SLI'd Board as most of you probally already know..

Oh if you are wondering why I am getting an older video card well that is an easy one I need 3 DVI - I Connectors for my VGA Projectors.. ;

^ this is 100% accurate. Any sli/crossfire being separate or single card solutions, will always copy the information of one card ito the other like a raid 1 setup, thus having the total availiable amount of one card's memory.

if you are only running VGAx3, i dont think you could ever fill up 1.5gb of vram, haha.
thats what, 1920x480 if you are doing them horizontal?
can i ask what you are doing with this odd resolution setup?

Hi The Resoltuion I will be running is 3072 x 768 120hz.. In Arma2:OA the most Vram I used was about 1200mb in the most crowded scene in Chenaris.. So I think Ill be fine with 1500mb..

If you don't use a lot of AA you will be fine. Crysis 3 uses around 1350mb of Vram at 1080p with SMAA x2 in HIGH settings. so if future-wise you run out of vram, just lower texture resolution or AA to cope with the low amount of Vram.
