[VC] First RX 480 benchmarks hit the web - Page 30

770, 960 and 380 are only borderline negligibly vram limited even at 1440p if you're targeting playable framerates. GTA V for example will run just as smoothly on the 2GB version. You can start noticing clear differences on unplayable settings but if both cards deliver unplayable results, I wouldn't say it matters at all.

It's just not the case, and AMD 7000 series owners have made use of their 3GB vram over time even though it was seen as overkill for the card's core power.

I'm just going on experience with my 3.5 GB 970.

I'm not saying the 8 GB version won't be a bargain, I just think the 4 GB version for $30 cheaper would be an even better bargain...

I'm going to estimate the 3 GB version of the 1060 will be at least $275.

I'm not saying you can't get away with 4GB for a fair while, but for a bit more you may as well get 8GB and never run into the issue.
Bingo. Better to pay for a little extra VRAM then to have your GPU held back prematurely by lack of said VRAM

To add onto that, the 2GB at 1080 crowd was right back then, when the consoles had 256MB of VRAM at their disposal. Most PC ports rarely used more then 1GB. But modern systems have 8GB. Even if only 4GB of that was usable, and half of THAT was used for VRAM, that still means that consoles have 8 times the usable VRAM now then they did back in 2011-2012.

Considering we are now at the point where console games are using hardware to their full advantage, I expect VRAM usage to continue to balloon, Especially as the next gen neo and scorpio come out in the next year or two.

Fair point, especially since the consoles have unified memory where the VRAM can be, essentially, all of the game allotted RAM; and consoles usually run on "Medium" settings.

Means nothing unless it's stable in games.

Good if real, and on the reference boards.

Reference cooler apparently sucks and the card is locked to 150W max. (these are rumours of course)

If those rumors are true I can't wait to see what some AIB cards can do.

Hopefully more then pascal managed with their 225 watt locked cards.

It'd be pretty underhanded to gimp the card just to make AIB boards and the possible 8+6 pin variant look better.
