Alright I’ll bite. Hell I’ll argue this one.
Lets look at popular games, right? CSGO. Not that big, can be played with a 512MB 9800. Dota. Not that big. WOW, HOTS, Starcraft… Not that big. I played Overwatch on my 2gig R7 370 at high perfectly fine. GTA5, not that big of a deal. LoL literally uses 600mb of GPU space. Skyrim was built to run on literally anything and I get 60FPS on my PX7900GT.
So going from there, mhat do we have. Witcher, maaaaybe assassins creed, whatever the hell that one game is that is cell shaded and you’re some spoopy castle guard avenging that kids mo- dishonered, uhhhhhhhhhhh… Doom, the new quake… But those have a vulkan mode so those will run well on anything. Then you have ram caching which I’m not sure how often thats used anymore and you can’t argue that its slow because everyone and their mother thas building a PC right now has to have 2.6GHZ ram or higher or they’ll die.
So, what, you turn bloom off and drop the lighting a little bit. Oh no the game is ruined. No, you play the fucking game. And trust me, people play more than modern AAA titles too. Lots just want a PC to turn on and stream PS2 and xbox games, others just want something to push to compute chips which is what I bet made this “tragedy” happen.
Seriously, this isn’t that big of a deal.
