Anyone got any rough guesses when the 512mb geforce cards are expected to come out?
per the grapevine.. by the end of the year there should at least be samples
That's kinda sick. I think that's overdoing what we need at the present time.
Even so, that's completely normal. 256 MB cards got released not too long ago and yet we don't fully utilize the entire memory. Doom 3 may be the only exception to this, but there's hardly a difference in graphics quality, though. Let alone a 512 MB card would perform better. Maybe with faster DDR3 memory. I suppose the 'coolness' factor plays a role here, so that people can show off how much memory they have on their card.
By the way, 512 MB or even 1 GB on DDR5 would be ultra fast. xD Indeed cool stuff, yeah, but that's unlikely to appear in the near future.
i think that if a current games needs more than 256mb memory its not been designed properly. as u say the doom 3 ultra high settings dont look that much better than the next ones down.
when will the 1gb's come out lol! yes i want that much. hehe,
