GTX 760 3GB. I thought they were all 2 or 4GB........... Learn something new every day.



What do you mean do think its false advertising?


A bit of research shows that it's the OEM version of the 760.

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-760-oem/specifications

which is different to the regular 760

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-760/specifications

and won't perform as well.


This makes sense as the desktop 760 has a 256 bit memory interface which won't accept 1.5/3GB of VRAM, as opposed to that OEM version with a 192 bit interface. Looking at benchmarks this OEM version of the 760 is about 30% less powerful than a desktop 760, and only half the power of a 770. So playing games like FarCry 3, if you want 1080p and 60fps you are looking at medium settings at best. No one knows how well Watch Dogs is going to run of PC at this point in time (it's not released) but I would imagine this system will be a marginal improvement over a PS4.

What do you base that on. It looks like it will perform as well as the normal one? Its looks like OEM is same as the original. Am I missing something? I think im missing something. What in particular way will it be weaker in terms of game play?

So is a 660 better than the 760 OEM? I easily get 60FPS on Far Cry 3 on ultra settings.

Really only marginal better then a PS4? I figured the processor and the ram would make it alot better.

He's talking specifically about WatchDogs, not the system as a whole. WatchDogs recommended CPU is a bit out there.
