    Are you curious how much difference a GeForce GTX 275 with 896 MB of memory and then a GeForce GTX 275 with an astounding 1792MB of memory makes when it comes to performance In this article Guru3D.com...

    I would not think in h.a.w.k.s all that ram is useless?

    Hmm so the results are about the same with other cards with more than 1gb of RAM. I think I would like to see two of these sli'd (also two normal ones to compare) to see if it'd be enough gpu power to use all that framebuffer.



    Thanks for the article Hilbert.

    I still remember all the articles you said "crysis stutters like hell because the lack of memory for the textures......bla bla bla".....it´s only poor coding man, only poor coding ;)

    No that's actually right, that was with 512MB cards. The game will start to swap a lot to the HDD if it runs out of framebuffer, thus causing massive stutters.

    Now we are at the stage where we have enough graphics memory .. yet need faster GPUs :)

    And sure ..the game engine remains a bitch :nerd:

    He was right, it is a lack of memory, but the GPU isn't powerful enough to produce decent frames when the memory is actually being used.

    Im sure with more memory bandwidth, we'd see better performance, but coupled with that and the fact the GPU just can't perform, gives us our problem.

    Crysis is extremely RAM dependant at high res plain and simple.

    I dont think you will see any gains untill you run some tests with SLI.
    No one is doing reviews with them, for some reason.

    can we get a SLI review of the double memory cards plz.

    Maybe if they offered the GPU for $20 US or so more than it would be worth it, but not $50. I remember when there was the 4870 1GB vs 512 MB debate ... the extra $20 was more than justified. Unfortunately, after 1GB, the performance gains simply aren't big enough.

    Still, do you think this card would be good for future proofing?
