According to the report, AMD graphics card manufacturers andNVIDIA Plan to double the graphics memory on their leading mono card slots this month. As we already know, versions with eight gigabytes of graphics memory for AMD's R9 290X cards already exist from Sapphire, but now we get information that PowerColor and Club3D will also start selling similar cards,NVIDIA And with the GTX 970 andGTX 980.
The amount of dual memory that AMD will begin offering on the most powerful single-core card probably comes as a response to the GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards, based on NVIDIA's new Maxwell architecture. This is not the first step the company has taken to deal with NVIDIA's new cards earlier this month AMD cut The price of its flagship card, the R9 290X, more than 200 dollars, a drastic step, which is now revealed only as a first step.
High-volume memory for the R9 290X and 970 / GTX 980 cards will definitely help them cope better with higher resolutions, but in performance tests the difference between Maxwell's new flagship device NVIDIA In front of the flagship card of AMD He was visible. Prices for the new cards have not yet been discovered, but it can be assumed that prices will be slightly higher than the current four gigabyte cards, or at least a drop in prices for existing cards and the introduction of new cards into the existing price tag.
