    oh sh…. 2GB of 128bit VRAM! I have 512MB only, I’m being depressed!!!

    Yea, and so much TDP. This is awsome improvement. Don’t you think?

    Why put 2gb in such a card is beyond me ( well other than marketing that is ). That card will never use 2gb.

    It’s GDDR3 though, No point crying over that it’s 2gb for GDDR3.

    Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 3 will put that 2-gigs of DDR3 to good use.

    Same for cod 11. Its a powerfull grafic card and with the added memory, its a total win.

    I’ve seen this card in use during Bad Company 2.
    With an i7-2600k and resolution 1680×1050 no more than medium and filtering on 4. Over that it’s not playable

    I don’t know people are rate it soo poorly. I have this card with a i5-2400 and I’m able to play Battle field 3 in Ultra settings at 1920×1080. The performance was just spectacular.
