That's exactly what I said I didn't want to do, sir. Written here in black and white.

Lower some settings to gain playable framerate and differences start to appear in exactly the same way they do at lower resolutions.
Also requested VRAM is still only a barely useful number.
tell that to the guy who prolly runs 4K on 290X, he'll keep denying cpu bound @4K cause he ain't never seen it.
But if Jetplane's ok with ~40 fps then his 2500K is okay for 4K. I think $400 is enough to buy a card that would pull that kind of avg. framerate in 99,9% of games with lowered details too.Edited by Klocek001 - 10/5/16 at 11:40am
