Is 4 GB graphics memory enough for gaming a little down the line?
I know the future is the hardest thing to predict, but I'd would like to hear some thoughts on the subject anyway
I'm thinking about replacing my beloved 7970 with a Fury X, but I can not stop wondering if the 4 GB memory on it is gonna be a major bottleneck sometime soon?
I'm gaming in 4K and I have found that my 7970 actually does run Fa Cry 4 surprisingly playable in 4K(3840x2160), so I'm sure current games will be more than fine with the Fury X and the review sites tell the same thing but what about when DX12 titles start to appear. The Fury X is expensive enough that I'd rather not have it be like a year old and then already a part to replace.
The rig the card is to live in has these other specs:
Gigabyte GA-P55 UD6(Rev.1.0) - Intel® P55 Express Chipset , PCI Express x16 slot at x16...
8 GB ram
Windows 8.1 (will likely be Windows 10 once I get round to it).
Primary monitor is 40" 3840x2160
Secondary monitor is a 27" 2560x1440
i.e. not the newest hardware except the 40", but unless I'm mistaken fast enough for the GPU to the bottleneck in 4K regardless of which GPU it is. Do say if I got that wrong?
Bones heal, glory is forever.
