It seems people are still divided on the importance of video memory but I certainly agree there is little need for AA at this resolution. Especially given how many frames you generally sacrifice.
From what I can tell though, a few people are still having issues with stuttering using 700 cards. I'm personally at my wits end with my 770's and will probably sell them if the next driver release doesn't fix it. So tired of troubleshooting, my impatience is getting to me.
Would really prefer to keep them as they have been great cards for the money and perform perfectly with virtually no issues at 1440p, but clearly 2160p is a different beast.
Anyway, probably going to try a pair of r9 290's next, or maybe just one 780ti? Any thoughts?
1080p with no AA is unplayable for me because of jaggies. 1440p with no AA, you have to look hard to see any. 4K you have to look really, really, really hard.
Played Tomb Raider Shantytown level yesterday at 4K ultra settings (AA & Tress off, all else highest). Did not reach 1.7 GB of Vram at any point.
Did not encounter any stutter in Tomb Raider. I did get some in Skyrim although I'm not sure if it's the game or not. Skyrim was using 1.9 GB with no AA. I have about 20 mods including the Bethesda HD pack enabled.
