I wouldn't call a 4GB 760 pointless, sure it wont get you anywhere in alot of games but for games like TitanFall you'll be stuttering with "Insane Textures" on 2GB cards, I've seen many benchmarks of the 2GBs choking on that game.
Imo this would have to come into the market at a decent price, with what I've been seeing in the UK for a 4GB 760 you could get a 2GB 770, this would have to be priced decently in order to make sense imo, just look at the 760 MARS, 2x 760 2GBs. that makes no sense for the graphics performance which can be extracted out of it putting it close to performance wise of a 780 Ti, and when you're working with that amount of GPU power wouldn't you want to dial up the resolution a bit to push 1440p+ stable without fears of running out of memory?
I think this would have to be priced just under a 2GB 770 to make sense, but with one title already choking 2GB cards maxed out (Due to the lack of texture streaming) who knows what the purely next gen titles such as Witcher 3 could behold for cards like the 690, 760 2GB and 770 2GB cards.
Would you rather a stronger card 2GB card that can play games maxed out and have stuttering problems because of the ram, or a weaker 4GB card that can play games maxed out without stuttering problems. (Ignoring the inferior performance)

Sure its just one game, and I myself dont see future 2GB cards struggling much compared to 4GB variants but its already happening.
This card should of been released months ago alongside 4GB 760s, probably making room for Maxwell.
If you see a 770 2GB for the cost of a 4GB 760 I'm sure many would be inclined to go for the 770, may be better off that way, or just stick to the 2GB 760.Edited by TopicClocker - 4/18/14 at 7:38am
