I don't know of any consumer card with 4 gig of RAM even at the very high end, and there is pretty much no way that a maker would put in 4gig of RAM into a low level card like the 440. You should find out from your friends where they saw this information.

It would be pretty much useless anyway. The GT 440 is in no way powerful enough to make use of 4GB of VRAM. To be honest I really doubt it's even powerful enough to really make use of 1GB. It's more in the 512MB range.

The hierarchy chart puts the GDDR5 version down with a 8800GT 256MB and an 8800GTS 320.

I totally agree with everyone's comments. 4Gb of vram on a low end card just seems like a waste. Cards with extra vram usually cost significantly more, would be better just to buy a higher tier card.

the addition of vram is mainly used for either large resolution, multi screen setup or professional work. the gt 440 is a weak card on its own and a 4gb vram model would be extrememly pointless in a gamer sense, so its existence was most likely aimed at professional work that is not using a quatro/business gpu that has multiple screens.

gt440 4gb is waste of money bcz it's weak core can not utilize the ram properly .. my friend is using gt 440 1gb with core 2 duo cpu and he is able to play bf3,max payne3,mw3,gta4 on medium setings on medium resolution

good card if low budget
but if u can invest more then go for 6670 or 7750

More than likely, your friend is talking about a 440 that actually has 2-3GB of VRAM and Windows is reading it as 4GB. Windows is bad at reading specs, especially GPUs. Stick with third party solutions, such as GPU-Z. Anyway, as stated, 440s aren't very good if you plan on gaming. The 6670 is a good card for the price, but there are plenty of better cards on the market. Why don't you give us your budget, the rest of your specs, and what you need this card for (don't forget your resolution)? Then we can probably help.

so it looks like there is a GT440 4gb and its presented to be better at multi monitor desktop applications(?)
still compared to a 6670 its not nearly as good.

granted there is no head to head benchmark. if you look at the performance of the 5670 (similar to a 440 in that review) you might consider it a constant varible when looking at the 6670 review. (the 6670 smokes it!)

i was planning to buy a gt-440... but u guys pretty much changed my mind ^_^... by the way am using
((((LCD Screen Size 32" (81cm), 16:9, Video Signal 480/60i, 480/60p, 576/50i, 576/50p, 720/50p, 720/60p, 1080/50i, 1080/60i, 1080/24p (HDMI™ only), 1080/50p (HDMI™ / Component), 1080/60p (HDMI™ / Component), Resolution 1366 x 768 pixels))))....... the power supply is a cooler master extreme 500 plus.....

I would have to +1 dudewithbow. It's more oriented for professional work that needs multi-monitors for productivity. Definitely not a gaming card which 4GB would be a waste for a weak card.

i would keep the graphic power requirements way down until you can replace that with one of better quality. not really a time bomb; most reviews i have read shows them failing at delivering the rated load; consider it a decent 400 watts PSU.

Just so you know the GT 640 is now out, at least in the US.

The GT 440 has 96 CUDA cores and the GT 640 has 384 CUDA cores, so a pretty significant upgrade.

^ I agree.

The Coolermaster Extreme Power Plus is AcBel Polytech made junk. Here it fails in HardOCP's testing.
