    Seems a bit uncessary, would it really affect performance all that much?

    Computational simulation could use the extra memory, if you're taking advantage of the GF104.

    Re: News - Gainward to release GeForce GTX 460 with 2GB of memory

    I bough a 1Gb Ati 4870 back in the day and that was significantly faster than the 512Mb version for what ever reason. I bought it because it was actually only £5 more than a stock 512Mb one. But the gap from 1Gb to 2Gb is so vast and only a large super-HD res screen would make any use of it, in which case you'd want a better GPU anyway. If it was only £10-£15 more then maybe, but £30+ more is too much.

    Re: News - Gainward to release GeForce GTX 460 with 2GB of memory

    I think if I was going to get a GTX460, I'd go for this.

    £30 more, and my 2048x1152 res would probably benefit from the extra memory.

    Re: News - Gainward to release GeForce GTX 460 with 2GB of memory

    Utterly pointless if you only buy one as the GPU will run out of steam before memory becomes an issue.
    In SLI, however more than 1GB per card can be beneficial as you're more likely to hit the 1GB memory limit before the GPU limit. They have to use 2GB rather than anything in between because of the number of memory controllers on the GPU.

    Would you really buy this to run games at 2040x1152 ?

    Maybe, it's a good card, and the GTX470 and 480 are just too expensive.

    I'd be looking at something with 1.5 - 2GB of memory next time I upgrade though.
