This, if I need more than 3GB for a single 1080p monitor for any relevant game within the next year, I'll gladly give away my 780.

my kingpin card doesnt break a sweat in crysis 3 at 2560x1440 4xmsaa or even 8x msaa, play with 4x because the fps goes up by like 10 fps lol.


this whole " 3gb vram is obsolete" thing people are trying to do is the biggest facepalm of the year.

You and others keep saying that, but you are SEVERELY misleading people. Texture buffers will continue to go up by crazy numbers, especially for games in the CryEngine, Frostbite and ID Tech engine, over the next year. We will be seeing games ported from systems that have 3.5GB of VRAM available at all times get straight non-optimized code from consoles to PC. Hell right now CryEngine scales to available. If you're ticking on options like AA you'll start seeing an insane spike in VRAM usage. I worked directly in the compatibility laboratory for Electronic Arts for 4 years on PC scaling systems, you couldn't be more wrong in your assumption. All we did there was build kits and test them on our emerging tech engines, and how well they'd accept straight ports from PowerPC and next-gen x86 console arch to PC. You want to go with the most available VRAM, because game companies are not going to spend the extra time and money to optimize code for PC. You will see 3GB of VRAM being topped out and memory leak crashes from overallocation of VRAM in modern games THIS YEAR ALONE at SINGLE MONITOR 1080P.

You absolutely want to start considering your options. 3GB VRAM is the new standard, the new minimum target spec moving forward at 1080p gaming. Stop trying to justify your purchase by swaying other consumers who have the option to upgrade away from it. You're disgusting me.

Simply put, from here onward for your typical gamer, VRAM will be the most important spec when picking out a card. Since current options are already more than enough to render current and future (for years) games at maximum, the limit will be poorly transferred builds leaking at VRAM allocation and causing crashes, and generally allocating more than they should.

The discussion of performance benefit of additional buffering is not the point of my post. Whilst in certain situations additional buffering can indeed provide noticeable benefit, in this situation the person that I was replying to, would be losing close to $200 switching from a 3gb 780 SC to even just a stock 6gb version. The performance benefit of more V-ram can be debated to hell and back, but there is no way it's worth an additional $200 from a price-performance standpoint that is anywhere even close to reasonable.

Last time I checked, 84% of discrete gpu sales were in the $199 and under category.

Those cheaper cards all fall within 1-2 gigs of ram.

So game makers are now going to start requiring more than 3 gigs for games? Sure, as long as they don't mind not being able to make a sale to 84% of their intended market.

Sadly enough, you are right.

But their money is just as good as ours.

I'd love to see games go the next level graphically but as long as we, the enthusiast, are the minority then games will always end up being dumbed down to reach the largest possible market.

definitely agreed there.

My gfs rig has two 7870s in it atm, 1080p gaming max settings on most games except crysis 3 and a couple other huge games that eat the fps, dont even get close to the vram limit. this whole " oh no the sky is falling, 3gb of vram isnt enough!!!' thing is at the point where its just annoying now.

I've (sadly) known people who have picked up those ridiculous 630's with 4gb of vram over 650ti's and 7770's because "MOAR IS BETTER! That's math n' stuff.." biggrin.gif
post #530 of 1081
"my 760 with 4gb of vram is better than that kingpin 780ti with only 3gb of vram!"
