Don't really see that happen much and most benchmarks show the 6GB performance crap out in situations where 3GB may be a limitation. In a year or 2 the VRAM on a mid range card is meaningless because you have to turn down settings for playable FPS any way. TBH the 1050 Ti should've had 3GB and the 1060 with 4 and replace the 6GB moniker with Ti as it has more hardware.
GPU prices are also nuts. I actually just grabbed a 1060 3GB new on Kijiji for 240, 150 less than buying the same card retail. The 6GB would be an even larger ripoff here in Canada.
You also assume everyone plays the same games as a hardware sites review benchmark suite.Edited by Horsemama1956 - 9/20/17 at 5:34pm
