The way I look at it is people who tend to buy in this price segment don't usually upgrade all that often. If an extra $30 gets you extra 2Gb for games 1-2 years down the road why wouldn't you? E-peen has nothing to do with it.

After all the "what a great value this card will be" comments, yes, it's worthy of a comment considering it is actually more expensive than a 7970GE today. You can get an Asus 7970 DC2 for $267 AR at Newegg right now. So getting basically the same card for $309 is supposed to be good for consumers?

There are Skyrim mods that can eat up more than 2 GB...Its really not bad to see more Vram since it really helps with more vram intensive games in the future....especially with games that have 4k texture maps on game assets....
post #26 of 824

$299 for card that is barely faster than a  670?

 

I think I will wait for prices to come down for the GTX 780.

Your card will run out of horse-power for those future games before they take advantage of the extra vram. If you read the review I posted, it discuss this more in depth how the vram is not going to reach that high and sustain playable fps. I'm sure on a professional level it may help but its more marketing gimmick then anything. Use that extra cash for waterblocks smile.gif

Well it's Pitcairn so it's understandable though i agree i would rather see the 270x at 200$ be Tahiti Pro re-badged rather than a tweaked 7870. Or have a R9 280 at 200$ that is Tahiti Pro. On Guru3d's review despite the 50mhz clock disadvantage the 280x seemed to beat the 7970Ghz/770 majority of the time. Of course we're talking about a negligible difference, but still.
