Im only looking at the 4GB cards. Also is 4GB enough for 1440p?
My bro has a 1440p build and I have a 1080p build, both looking to put a 480 in.
Reference blower and PCB vs AIB cooler and PCB.
4GB is enough for 1200p but not 1440p not in all games and maxed out, no way. GTAV gave me like 3.5GB needed VRAM on my 3GB GPU with very high settings, dunno why coz it ran just fine (60-80fps average) on 3GB anyway. But other games do happily attack toward 3GB on 1200p and mind you I don't use MSAA I use SMAA. I guess games like Shadow of My dead GPU run VRAM like crazy.
Personally I'm looking for a decent RX 480 8GB with 8pin power and corresponding power limits available. They can put that 4GB version where the sunshine don't shine.Edited by JackCY - 6/18/16 at 12:26pm
