Why? Please elaborate

>>52255495
A game has to use more than 4gbs of VRAM to make a difference, and in addition more VRAM can help certain workloads such as for 3D modeling

Look at the difference between 2gbs of 4gbs

I think like CoD Black Ops 3 CAN use 6gbs of VRAM or something like that, but it's not going to matter much

The card has higher stock clocks and OCs higher on average due to better manufacturing

Asscreed syndicate

GTAV

Just Cause 3

Battlefront

Rainbow 6

All show a difference going from 2gbs to 4gbs

there's no difference shown in any going from 4gb to 8gbs simply because the games aren't using that much VRAM

>>52255698
I can't remember every game benchmark
>>
>>52254393
Ok, so we can conclude that at lower resolutions extra VRAM isn't as important, im sure the benchmarks would be different at 4k+

Also, it's interesting to note they used exclusively the highest settings possible. I wonder if there would be different results at lower levels of things such as AA, AO, etc where presumably the limiting factor isn't the GPU.
>>
>>52255725
This. Also, IIRC, there were games that would refuse to run on the 2GB version of the GTX 960.
>>
>>52255725
>+1-2 fps at 1600p (a unplayable resolution)

>>
>>52255836
AssCreed goes from 52 avg to 60 at 1080p, that's a pretty sizable jump

GTAV goes from 22 to 30 at 1080p maxxed out settings

It's going to depend on the game but it can make some difference for games now and it's most likely going to make more of a difference for games in the future.

Not every game is going to utilize more than 2gbs of VRAM retard, especially older ones

Wait till you hit a game that loads lots of shit on vram and you will see how your frame times jump like shit due nasty access times of system ram
>>
While that may be the case, an increase on the low end will also means an increase on the high end side.

High end GPUs can utilize 8GB VRAM in a game at 4k and still provide good performance.
>>
>>52257793
R6:S claims to be able to use something like 8 GB, yet the only significant difference is 2 -> 4 and only on the 380
>>
A lack of VRAM is not good though.
>>
>>52256097
>380

Not really. The 285 was more of a pilot scheme for new tech. Would be more comfortable with 3GB memory though. 4 is too much and 2 is not enough.
>>
>>52257998
>MUH 4k

Kill yourself, 4k is literally a dumb meme that's just a waste of money
>>
everyone with half a brain in their head already knew this

1080/60 doesn't need 2 gigs minus a few poorly optimized outliers

Herp derp.

It is about knowing that you can run every game, and dont have to do research before hand.

and where are the fps drop?

wait so GTAV doesn't do well at 1080p with GTX 970?

The jump isn't going to be worth it
>>
>>52258717
really? it's only $50 more but has twice the vram and SHOULD last an extra year (better manufacturing so it OCs better)

that being said, though, mine is a tri-x and overclocks decently. I don't know how good msi cards are, but it might not be as good

pic related, my 290 score
>>
>>52258757
Just save up for a new CPU once zen/Kaby lake drops
>>
>>52258781
desu I don't game enough to justify a new cpu. my 2500k has done everything I've asked it to do and honestly, even when I replace it, I'll probably use it in a secondary system until 2020-2021

will a new cpu help though? kinda getting off track, but is Unigine gpu or combined? I've seen some 290 scores getting pretty high with similar clocks, the only difference being their cpu
>>

Mods. Specifically, high res texture ones.
Skyrim comes to mind.
>>
>>52258821
no it's just that your CPU is old and in 6 months or so when all the new shit comes out you'll be able to get a new motherboard with USB 3.1 cheaper
>>
>>52258838

this is one of the few instances

2 gig is fine for midrange cards at 1080/60, most won't have the power to both anything higher than that

For midrange tier card, a lot of Vram is useless.
