You do not need more graphics memory

Some of the graphics cards are available in different memory sizes (like the successful nVidia 8800 GT or 8800 GTS): 256MB, 512MB, 1GB. But how much RAM do you really need?

Thanks to The Tech Report, you will know: “How much graphics memory do you really need?“.

Summarized:

  • 1GB: is worthless, the CPU of the bard will be short before the memory is full
  • 512MB: This is the right figure
  • 256MB: Not enough if you want to push the definition up
