A few days ago it was reported that AMD is preparing to introduce 3D-card Radeon R9 290X with 8 GB of memory. According to the source, the company also plans to release Nvidia’s flagship 3D-version of the card – in this case, this model GeForce GTX 980 – with 8 GB of memory.
For a single GPU card to 4 GB of memory capacity is considered sufficient, because this card is not designed to play in the resolution of 4K with maximum settings. Another thing – the multiprocessor configuration in which the game in 4K resolution with maximum settings become reality.
There is an increased amount of memory would be useful. Unfortunately, the memory in SLI and CrossFireX does not stack. In this situation, the manifest advantages of the flagship models of single-processor with 8 GB of memory.
Another motive for their purchase can serve as a sense of superiority over the holders of such cards with 4 GB of memory, the producers also can not be discounted.
It remains to add that the output of Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 with 8 GB of memory is expected this month.
