14GB VRAM to 100% max the visual settings in native 4K. Radeon VII looks very temping in a new build.

Yeah, I was lagging pretty hard with my GTX 970 even on medium/low 1080p :(

the VII is too expensive for a gaming card. It is a great deal if you want a compute card though. The VII makes me pretty interested in AMD's high end Navi die though. With GDDR6 and a bigger die the thing will be beefier and hopefully cheaper as well

The game uses nowhere near 14gb. Demo starts at 8gb for 4k max and then slowly rises to near 9 gb by the end as if theres a memory leak. Or maybe thats the shadow caching.

The game is 14GB VRAM, it says this in the settings. PC visually looks way better than the consoles.

RTX 2080 retails $799 at Nvidia so this is $100 less and includes 3 new games valued at $180.

PC is a hardware manipulated industry. Those manufacturers need to make money somehow. Remember when your new GPU was a beast? Is still is but they chose to screw you over by not supporting it.

Nvidia "You need to make your games only run on newer cards" *Slips money under table.

Its strange how the settings says this. I changed it to DX12 which killed my performance while DX11 gives me 60fps w/ Vync 4K max settings.

GTA 5 is the opposite. The settings might say 4gb will be used but it actually uses 6gb.
