Doesn't really make sense.....by the time you need 2gb framebuffer.......the next gen will be upon us.


I'd like to see some benchies vs. a 1gb card. Especially since the 4870 512mb outperforms the 4870 1gb in a few select situations....


2gb would be nice for SSAA....that's about the only thing I can think of to do with this beast.

Consoles have low resolution textures, low screen resolutions and low viewing distance unlike the PC version.
