NVIDIA's 1GB Graphics Card
Hi all.

I've heard, that ATI released 1GB graphics card, but not sure, because can't get any information from their site.

I wonder when NVIDIA will release 1GB graphics card, because I need it very much for my new PC. I find 768MB as not enouph for feuture games.

If someone is intrested in that aspect and need such graphics card too, post reply here... or, if you have any information on when such graphics card will be available - too.

Thanks.

Sorry, I dont have any info on 1 gig Geforce cards.

But what leads you to belive 768mb should'nt be enough video memory even for the upcoming games?

Do you have such a card yourself? If you have? How much RAM do you have?

For XP to ensure smooth gaming, you will need 2 gig of RAM.

For Vista 3 gig. Also, what kind of cpu you have will have an impact. A dual core cpu will make a difference.

And on top of that, a power supply, that is sufficient to run your video card and other hardware.

He is clearly one of these people who believe that the amount ram on a graphics card is what defines its performance
manufacturers seem to encourage this theory by selling crap cards (x1300 etc)with like 512Mb of GDDR

And why would you use 3gb of ram for vista?
common concensus is to install ram sticks in pairs to enable dual channel mode
making the obvious choice 4gb (2x 2Gb) just because you can't use the last 500Mb doesn't mean you should sacrifice dual channel mode

Yes this is true for the most part..... But GDDR is Made to store graphics texture, not program data, and with 20" inch + monitors and DX10 becoming more and more popular it will help and not be just a gimmick.

There IS a 1GB nvidia card and it comes out 3rd December...Link: [url="http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=52300"]http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=52300[/url]
