Huh, never had that issue with my 980Ti SLI setup...still only 6GB of usable memory, all settings maxed/all the way over. I get a pretty consistent 60 FPS all the time w/frames capped. This is both at 2560x1440 and 3440x1440 w/my new monitor.
Did get a bit of a hit when using DSR to downsample 4k though.

I'm definitely curious as to how this will perform in BOINC and Folding@Home tasks....

GTX 970 3.5 GB over 390 8GB
GTX 980 4GB over 390X 8 GB

In each of those cases, Nvidia offered less memory than AMD at the same or higher price point, and the majority of the consumer didn't give a damn and bought Nvidia instead. Not to mention these are consumers buying cards that are more than $130 more than the GTX 1060 3GB and would care more about what they get for their money. Nvidia understands its consumer base more than you do rolleyes.gif

Memory bottleneck at 1080p is a vastly exaggerated issue on these forums than they are for actual consumers, and as been discussed a lot of games use as much as memory as the cards give them instead of what they actually need, thus they would use more memory when run a Radeon card but perform the same and use less on a Nvidia card.

It's not an exaggerated issue, as someone who switched graphics card and still got the same 60fps, there was a noticeable change in going from a 3GB card with 60fps in my favorite game (Morder) and a 8GB card with 60fps. I've also played a number of other games which seem remarkably smoother with 8GB of ram, despite being limited to 60fps (the games also spiked in texture usage with the additional memory).

People who care about ram usage would buy the 6GB card anyway, this card is going to people who don't know what gpu-z is and don't play their game with a OSD on to track ram usage, who only sees the 1060 name and the $199 price tag. They been plenty happy with 750Ti and 960 2GB and will not use more than 2.5 GB on CS:GO or yOverwatch or League at 1080p anyway.

And those people are already fine on 750ti's and 960's... 1060 3gb is just not a compelling buy for anybody to be honest.

We get it. You prefer AMD. You responded to multiple logical posts with "I don't see it from a logical point of view". So lets agree to disagree and stop running in circles.

And how did you come to that conclusion? Please read before posting. I even recommended the 1060 6gb model as one of the only two smart options in the 175-250 price range.

If you plan to stick to older games, you likely already have a card more than capable. If you plan to play newer games, 3gb is a limiting factor. So like I've said previously, a 4gb rx 470 once prices drop to normal levels, or a 6gb gtx1060.

I have a 750ti in one of my builds and the 1060 3gb model is simply not a wise upgrade from it. A 470 4gb, 480 4gb or 1060 6gb are better options..

But hey, people are free to be uneducated consumers. I'm just not a fool when it comes to vram limitations. If someone wants to waste their money, be my guest. I learned that lesson a long time ago when I bought a 128mb geforce 4 ti4200 over a 64mb model. Needless to say my card lasted a lot longer than my friends 64mb model as far as usability goes. And no the 64 models didn't run out of horsepower, they just had to cut back on everything and were not supported on newer titles.

It might not be a wise upgrade, but people do dumb things all the time.

Like upgrading to a 1070 from 980 Ti, or from 290 to 480.

3-4GB cards won't max every game but @$199 people are not trying to max every game. You generally want the strongest performance per dollar that you can get with a cooler and warranty that you like.

Going from the 290 to the 480 isn't a dumb move though, as long as you are happy with the same performance, because of the newer features that the 480 provides over the 290 and the power savings.
