Yeah, same here. Just 2GB of VRAM would be disappointing. Even if it's 40-50% faster than 7970, as they claim, I won't buy it because I like to turn up AA all the way in my games, and 2GB will be a bottleneck soon.

And I think the 40-50% faster claim is just Nvidia PR. Just like the ATI PR claiming 50-60% faster than GTX580. Probably some canned bench they like to run that favors the hardware for some reason.

I expect it to be faster but not that much faster. Probably around 15-20%.
