PC Gaming continues to push the limitations of PC hardware every year in the quest for improved visuals and framerates. One of the ways to enjoy the latest titles on your PC is to ensure your graphics card has enough Graphics Memory (VRAM).
A few of the newer AAA games benefit greatly from having more VRAM available to store assets needed, play at higher resolutions, and to enable the latest visual effects.
For those looking at making sure they have enough Graphics memory for games that are pushing the limits of 4GB, AMD RadeonTM RX graphics cards provide a wide set of solutions in 6GB or 8GB capabilities that include: RadeonTM RX 570, RX 580, RX 590, and RX 5000 Series GPUs.
When gaming with insufficient levels of Graphics Memory, even at 1080p, gamers might expect several issues:
- Error Messages and Warning Limits
- Lower Framerates
- Gameplay Stutter and Texture Pop-in Issues
Recent releases have shown marked performance increases when switching from a RadeonTM 5500 XT 4GB to a RadeonTM 5500 XT 8GB. In DOOM Eternal, the 8GB card runs the game at Ultra Nightmare settings at 75FPS (1080p), while the 4GB card can’t apply the graphics settings with that level of VRAM1. Looking at titles such as Borderlands 3, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Forza Horizon 4, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, there is a performance improvement on average of up to 19% across these games when using the same card and increasing the amount of VRAM from 4GB to 8GB2.
AMD is leading the industry at providing gamers with high VRAM graphics solutions across the entire product offering. Competitive products at a similar entry level price-point are offering up to a maximum of 4GB of VRAM, which is evidently not enough for todays games. Go Beyond 4GB of Video Memory to Crank Up your settings. Play on RadeonTM RX Series GPUs with 6GB or 8GB of VRAM and enjoy gaming at Max settings.
