    8GB. Cool, so a 1080P card then?

    Is the 2080 Super a 1080p card with its 8GB VRAM? Not really, right?

    The amount of VRAM doesn't dictate "max resolution" in games. I will work nicely at 1440p and even 4K depending on the game.

    Try 1440 to 4K as 8GB is plenty and will be for 3+ years.

    Get with the facts, not makebelieve just because you want it to be correct.

    Lets not speak NOW , lets speak when next gen games start poping. It will change fast. We need to have same discussion in 2 years.

    Is that why 16gb and 20gb versions of 3070 and 3080 are coming? Ok then.

    Maybe hold off, there's rumoured to be a 16gb version in the wings

    Nvidia's ditched those ages ago. Maybe they had em on high end 700 series last?

    What are you talking about. Even a 1080 have a dvi-d port.

    My GTX 1080 says otherwise. It's true, however, that I wasn't paying much attention to the 2xxx series after the benchmarks came in...

    Lets speak with historical information. Not an unknown future based on how the past is and history hasn't happened.

    So nvidia can get money out of suckers? Because they wish to pay more for something that won't benefit them? Absolutely.

    Just like AMDs currently released 16GB models, just like AMDs previous 4GB vs 8GB models, etc. Barely any, if any, difference, and happened years after the release when saving money and buying a new GPU later on would have helped far more then the few, very few extra FPS you got for over spending on a GPU that didn't need that much memory.

    Facts are facts, history is history.

    Get enough people complaining your GPUs don't have enough memory even though you as a company who makes said GPUs knows otherwise, why wouldn't they release higher memory versions and rake in more cash just to satisfy those who don't want to look at reality? Win-Win for nvidia/AMD, more money, and more sales.

    You are comparing low/mid range cards with high end cards. The 570 which does a 4GB and 8GB is a slow card not capable of doing 4k gaming so yea, 99 times out of 100 you won't need more than 4GB, but when you're talking about a 3070/3080 that 8/10GB is crossing a might fine line in 4k gaming maxed settings now, let along moving forwards.

    As someone else said, the consoles having about 16GB total memory so probably 8-10GB VRAM are obviously going to be using it, those devs and artists constrained by the under powered machines of the last gen are being let loose and as a result even at 1080p gaming the VRAM requirements will go up, its exponential at higher res's like 4k. If you only ever play 1440p with a 3080 you'll never have any issues but I'd say quite a few people buying it will have the ability to play 4k

    People have been confusing memory allocated with utilized since the beginning of computers. Also higher the bandwidth the faster said memory can be filled so you can get away with less without any impact since you can preload resources faster. I think what everyone should do it is read reviews of higher VRAM cards and decide off the data.

    I'm stating facts. I'm sure radeon vii users are super happy about their 16gb of vram its lasted them so well compared to newer GPUs.

    Same with the rtx titan and its 24gb

    Same with the titan x/xp with its 12gb

    Im sure they all love the fact that those GPUs cost a lot of money but are getting destroyed by GPUs with much less ram in them at 4K, where the additional ram was...supposed to make their GPU last longer.....

    (Only talking gaming here, yes, workstations can utilize that extra ram)

    So no, i'm stating facts, if you dont wish to believe these facts, you can put a tinfoil hat on at any time.

    These arent facts they are copes. 3070 8GB is obsolete right out the box.
