Is there any game that uses more than 4gb at 1080p or that stutters with a fury due to vram?
I ask because with current rebates, a fury is 350. Just 30 more than a RX480 nitro and I believe the fury is a stronger card and as such a better buy.
Fury is like 20% more powerful than 480 and Fury custom versions are actually available, so I'd say go for Fury for 350, I did the same . I don't think that 4GB is limiting factor. Even if there are games that can eat more than 4GB, this is because they have some Hyper textures, 4K textures or whatever, that take 3 times more VRam and gives no improvement. I remember only few games that ate more than 4 GB, this was Shadow of Mordor (from my experience won't stutter because of VRAM, it just always takes all you have), latest Mirrors Edge (Hyper textures, no gain is visual quality - useless), Rise of the Gimp Rider (same, Very High 4K textures - no gain in visuals), Assassins Creed Syndicate (VRAM usage concludes how bad this game is). Most of games are not using that much, for example for Witcher 3 tops at 3011 MB in 3440x1440 res, normally staying around 2 GB. There is no need for 4GB+ VRAM consumption, well optimized game won't use that much. Look at Witcher 3 and its 1-2 GB VRAM usage at 1080p and tell what is the justification for 3 times higher VRAM usage at the same res?Edited by Krzych04650 - 7/26/16 at 8:12am
