So, where is the 780 6GB/TI 6GB???

Hopefully coming soon. I want 2x 780Tis in 6GB form for my starved-for-an-upgrade PC. If the rumors of the tick for Maxwell are true, it isn't worth bothering waiting, and I'll just upgrade to the tock (900 series) whenever it comes out sometime in 2016

May be wrong here...

But I'm doubtful a 6gb version is gonna provide any improvements over the 3gb

Except for maybe multi-monitor and multi-card setups

And modern games/console ports which easily gobble up 3GB of VRAM now at 1080p. Most recent example? Titanfall. Game consoles have an available 3.5GB of unified RAM to use as VRAM and abuse with sloppy code. You can bet your ass 3GB is the new target threshold, the threshold you'll want to be above not below.

Gamers said the same thing about 1080p gaming at 1GB of VRAM and 2GB respectively, just a few years ago.

The primary issue most gamers had running, for example, BF3 at max settings wasn't the GPU not being beefy enough, it was running out of VRAM. Very common complaint on the forums for users of the 500/600 series at the time. This trend will continue.

that's not it at all...

The issue isn't whether something can eat up the memory. the issue is "is the card fast enough" to use the memory before the card can load more. For example. a hd 7850/gtx 650ti BOOST come in both 1gb and 2gb versions. The is no performance difference in ANY title between the 1gb and 2gb version, even though many of those titles use more then 1gb of vram. Why? Because neither card is FAST enough to chew through more then 1gb of vram. The only reason to get the 2gb card of either is for SLi and Xfire, where there certainly IS a performance difference. Because in SLi/xfire the cards are fast enough to chew through 1gb of ram.

Unfortunately we have no frame of reference to say the same about the 780/780ti. But from what i've seen the 3gb of vram doesn't harm it at high resolutions. Which makes me think a SINGLE card gains no advantage sitting on 3gb or 6gb of vram. Now if you're running an SLi settup, it's very likely the 780ti or even the 780 might be bottlenecked by 3gb of vram... in which case for people who SLi their cards, these 6gb offering will be worth something i think.

What modern games are you talking about?

I run crysis 3 and others at 4k with NO ISSUES....nevermind 1080p

Titanfall doesn't look anywhere NEAR as impressive, all it does is cache a whole bunch of VRAM

The only thing "you can bet your ass" about is when 3gb at 1080p becomes the new threshold it will have been time to upgrade anyway

The only time you'll see an advantage with 6gb vs 3gb is when you play a modded game like Skyrim or an unoptimized game like Titanfall. This applies to both a single card or SLI.

Memory bandwidth is what determines how fast the memory fills and empties. Two 780 6gb in SLI have the same memory bandwidth as 1 780 3gb. The amount of memory the card has will have no effect on it's bandwidth.
