Hard OCP have reviewed the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB SLI - but is 4GB really necessary?

"A week ago on Tuesday, January 8th we published a full comprehensive look at a single ASUS GeForce GTX DirectCU II 4GB video card. That evaluation focused on pushing the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB video card to the extreme at 1080p and 1600p, as well as overclocking, to see if double the RAM you usually get on a GTX 670 makes a real-world difference. Our evaluation concluded that for a single card, even at 2560x1600 in the latest games, that it just wasn't able to reach the level of performance needed to run at extreme settings in today's latest games. Please read that evaluation to learn all about the ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB video card. You can find this video card right now for $459.99.

Feeling the need to fully explore what 4GB of VRAM can give us in gameplay, we knew that multi-display was the arena we needed to test in. Thanks to ASUS we were able to obtain two 4GB GTX 670 cards just for this purpose. So today, we are going to put ASUS GeForce GTX 670 4GB SLI to the test on a triple-display setup in NV Surround resolutions. If anything is going to prove to us why we need 4GB on a video card, it is this level of testing in today's latest games.

We will fully explore gameplay, and push the latest games to the max in order to find this out. The ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB video card are not factory overclocked, unfortunately, so these operate at the stock reference GTX 670 clock speeds. Since these are not ASUS's OC or TOP models, the lower performance profile could be a hindrance, even with 4GB of RAM on board. We shall see."
