GPUs with dedicated ram

 

just something that's bothering me. higher the dedicated ram = better graphics? pweeze, dont give me a yes or no answer. 

 

RAM

 

http://www.amazon.co...ds=8gb ram ddr3

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item25a8618e59

 

both of them are the same thing, aren't they? like, exactly the same. just one's flashier, pricier and a more well known brand. im planing to buy some more ram but someone told me that not all ram is the same and that some will not be compatible with the current ram i have installed on my pc.

Hell yes, dedicated all the way. Integrated is a massive shithole. 

 

AMD just announced some badass new cheap cards that aren't out yet but will be on tuesday. 

Look at the AMD R7 370 4GB at only 149$

 

Cheap as hell for 4GB of VRAM. 

 

Where will you find 4GB integrated graphics for 150$ ? Nowhere. 

 

Also look how badass it looks, this is the Asus Strix version

Sort of... Not really. It's more complex than just that.

 

Generally speaking... 4gb will be better than 1gb. There are other factors to look at. Cores being one of them.

 

If we're talking strictly ram... then of course. The more ram the card has dedicated to it... the better performance it will have... But it's the same logic as a computer... there are more parts than just ram.

Ram is mainly for storing the textures, for gaming in 1080p you pretty much wont need over 4Gb, if you go into 4k gaming then you will need a lot more. What you want to look at for performance is its processing stats mhz of the memory and cores also how many cuda cores for nvidia and stream processors for amd, the more the faster it can handle data.

 

This is just my research of graphics cards :)

He is talking about GPU not RAM

Since you linked RAM sticks... Lets talk RAM...

 

Not all ram is the same. Mixing and matching ram isn't great.

 

Going for cheap isn't always the best as low quality ram can either not live up to it's full potential or die out fast.

 

Keep to the same brand to stick with the same frequency RAM and stick to major known brands.

 

And always over buy. If you want 8... go with 16 because you may want more in the future. :P
