Yup. Considering this card is aimed (mostly) at surround users (or those wanting to), it seems like a bad choice to "only" include 1.5GB though it should still be fine with most games (with some settings down of course). However anybody who buys this card to play at 1080p would be a fool. Pricing is always bad for cards like this, expensive cards always have the worst price/performance. The GTX 580 is one example.
I mean one can buy a 480 here for around Â£180 less than a 580 (90% less) and clock for clock the difference is 10% at most in high resolutions and a 480 can overclock just as well as a 580. I doubt these cards will carry better "value".
i definitely agree that they probably won't carry better value.
is the lack of phases going to affect how well it overclocks back to normal 580 specs?
