Closed 6870 1gb vs 6870 2gb 1920x1080p Tags: Radeon HD Graphics Last response: December 15, 2011 12:41 AM in Graphics & Displays Share PCguy94 December 7, 2011 8:47:23 PM Hello, If I am only going to run games at 1920x1080 on one monitor, would a HD radeon 6870 1gb be the better choice than a HD radeon 6870 2gb? Thanks! More about : 6870 1gb 6870 2gb 1920x1080p rolli59 December 7, 2011 9:36:52 PM Yes! At least it is not worth the price difference to get the 2GB card for single monitor gaming (no performance gain)! Score 0 Djentleman December 7, 2011 9:51:41 PM Well.... Its a little debatable. I don't want to be a sour puss, but, their saying most games use 1.5gb in SOME cases. Do i think you should get 2gb for a card like the 6870? No. So for what your doin' the 6870 should suffice. Just don't expect max settings!

Score 0 holdingholder December 7, 2011 11:25:29 PM The only reason to get the 2gb version would be if you were going to crossfire them and get a 2560x1600 monitor. As it stands, I would say a 6870 doesn't even have enough gpu muscle to use that much ram.

Score 0 Best solution rolli59 December 8, 2011 12:05:05 AM The 1GB will give you high to max settings in BF3 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graph... Guessing about 30fps on Ultra http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graph... You gain nothing from the 2GB card over the 1GB except if you go extended resolution over multiple screens.
