4GB of Vram is a decent place to be, 3GB may be a questionable future to purchase at this point :/

ok this is crazy, Classy for $420.. I swear this was $600 last month

Since it wants 6gb that makes the 980 just as irrelvant as the 780 ti in terms of vram, since they are both way under and would have to run at the same texture level anyway.

Do you have Arma 3 or Watchdogs to test it on? I am really curious to see the performance difference in games where the VRAM is close to capping on the 780 Ti.

I don't have 980 anymore, it's been giving me problems; I sent it back to Amazon for refund. Will be waiting for big Maxwell now.

I know this is a couple weeks old but I've played this game with 780s and 970s so have experience with the vram utilization.

When I ran ultra textures (1440p) with the 780 AB reported 3072mb vram usage, so maxed out. With high textures AB reported 2600-2900mb vram usage.

Unfortunately I never ran high textures with the 970s for comparison (I may do this), but with ultra AB only reported a maximum of ~3500mb used. I would wager that with the 970s AB will report less than the 2600-2900mb it reported with the 780s. This could be due to the enhanced bandwidth efficiency or delta color compression. I'm not exactly sure.

Either way, the 6gb of vram recommended at 1080p (LOL) by ME:SOM is ridiculous.

But, for someone with GTX 680/770/HD 280X level of performance, this should be an awesome upgrade. ~Cheers

Can confirm, went from a 7970 to a 970 and the performance seems to be almost doubled, this card is also cool and quiet in comparison. Definitely a worthwhile upgrade.

its far below doubled. Probably closer to 40% really.

In the best GPU scaling game i own, Tomb Raider the perf average went from 30ish fps with 4xSSAA to 54. I'd say that is almost doubled. I was running my 7970 at 1100/1600 vs the 970 at 1500/8000 so that might be the difference, i can definitely notice the performance differential between the two though.

Also my best FS runs for both were 8800~ GPU score on the 7970 and 14k~ on the 970.

dude it's not double. The 980 needs a beefy overclock to match a 7990 which IS double and we both know the 970 is a far cry from the 980 especially when overclocked. Again i'd say about a 40% diff stock vs stock and maybe a 60% diff OC vs OC but not 100%. Firestrike is heavily optimized on the 900 series cards so there is that as well. Not saying your card is slow or bad or anything, it obviously isn't but it also isn't double the performance of a 7970.

I usually skip a generation since the generation-to-generation performance jumps aren't incredible enough to warrant a wallet plunder every year or two... unless the 980TI drops and blows minds. Barring that, I'm on Pascal watch.
