Sorry, shared memory was the wrong term to use. What I mean is, either way the 4GB of VRAM is still being used up. I know you said they 'mirror' each other, either way you can still use up that 4GB of VRAM. If you couldn't then you wouldn't have such vast performance increases when resolution/GPU work increases as compared to having 2 cards in CF/SLi.

The current designs on these dual-gpu cards don't have shared memory so each gpu core uses the required amount of vram per gpu core to render and load balance two scenes together seamlessly.

if you were going dual GPU, I think you would already have the knowledge or asked someone about it......
