Solved 1GB GDDR5 vs. 2 GB GDDR3 Tags: Graphics Cards New Build Graphics Product Last response: July 3, 2012 11:04 PM in Graphics & Displays Share gr8griffin July 3, 2012 7:15:39 PM Hello, I'm going to be purchasing parts for a new build soon but I was stuck on the graphics cards. I'm considering two cards, both Radeon HD 6670, but one has 1 GB GDDR5 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ) and the other 2 GB GDDR3 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ). I'm leaning towards the 2 GB one but I wanted to ask here to make sure which is better. -Thanks More about : 1gb gddr5 gddr3 cuecuemore a b U Graphics card July 3, 2012 7:31:17 PM The 1GB is better by a long shot. Best solution cobot a b U Graphics card July 3, 2012 7:35:50 PM Share The GDDR5 1GB is MUCH better. 2GB on a 6670 is just a marketing play and a way for the manufacturers to get rid of old GDDR3 memory. The 6670 is not fast enough to use 2GB memory anyways.
