Yeah I'm curious bout that. 1592MB is exact number of Video Memory used by GTA IV in 1650x1080 with All options maxed. Will Fermi be good enough to play with those settings?

Really? Then the engine is even crappier than I thought.

Wasn't going to post this, but it might be good for a couple of laughs(Charlie is so desperate):

This means that only journalists who are known to follow the "reviewer's guide" closely, are willing to downplay the negatives, and will hit the important bullet points provided by Nvidia PR will be the ones most likely to gain early access to these cards. If this sounds unethical to you, it is, and it's not the first time. This is exactly what Nvidia did to cut Anand, Kyle and several others out of the GTS250 at launch. That worked out so well the last time that Nvidia will probably try it again. Expect fireworks when some people realize that they have been cut out for telling the truth.

The end result is that the GTX480 is simply not fast enough to deliver a resounding win in anything but the most contrived benchmark scenarios. It is well within range of a mildly upclocked HD5870, which is something that ATI can do pretty much on a whim. The GTX480 can barely beat the second fastest ATI card, and it doesn't have a chance at the top.
Removed link so that this douchebag doesn't get any hits from nvnews.

Not wanting to go off topic here, but the more memory you have the greater draw distance you can set. It's the opposite of crappy, it allows you to get the most from the hardware you have

Ah ok, I just thought of Crysis which has to be run a 2560 res on enthusiast with fsaa to break a 1GB VRAM limit iirc. So it seems GTA4's requirements are somewhat high.

I would love to see GTA IV in action how about you guys? Most games are fully playable with 285 or 5870.

285 here Noriega and no problems at all in GTA4, no chugging at all it's smooth as silk

Memory wise, they can be as high or as low as you want. Even at low memory settings (512mb) it still looks very good. It just looks better at a greater distance with more memory. The more the better.

nvm he didn't provide any sources for his claims so it was just speculation on his part.
