I'm so tempted to do this with my GTX 780 just so I can have one and say that I've got one. I know that I will never use the 6GB of VRAM. Hell, I barely use more than 2GB VRAM in the worst situations. Still, it would be cool to have. tongue.gif

EDIT: Just noticed I paid nearly $530 for my GTX 780 SC. That means that it would only be $20 for me to get the 6GB variant. I'm not sure I can say no to that. biggrin.gif

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.

Doesn't change the fact that when I left EA, in the laboratory setting we were looking to target 3GB of VRAM for next-gen engines. Though the topic of the thread is step-up program, given the option, especially considering the 50 dollar price variance it would be asinine to detract buyers from it for whatever reason.

Keep spreading your satirical misconception but when we are getting console ports running on the Source Engine that can easily gobble up a full 3GB of VRAM at max settings for 1080p it is very clear the direction engines are going. It would be foolhardy to suggest otherwise. If you have the option to upgrade to the 6GB model or were on the fence about which one to buy, 50bucks and you'll ensure you won't suffer a chugging poorly optimized port from memory leaks. Yes yes, we should expect more from developers/publishers but that won't happen. So do what you can to stay ahead and game comfortably.

Not to mention down-sampling as an option for enthusiasts from much higher resolution to your native, to enable sharper more detailed pictures on your 1080p monitors. It will become increasingly more common as a built-in option in game instead of ubersampling.

You obviously didn't see I wasn't serious.

I'd also like to throw in from a development standpoint that when the evil company you worked for decides to gip a good portion of their market, it's only going to hurt them. And then the developers are going to have to go back and 'patch' for 'bugs', when all they'll really be doing is fixing sloppy code. That's not a valid reason for going for more VRAM, yet a sorry/poor excuse for lazy and sloppy coding.
