View Full Version : 560ti 2GB or 580 1.5GB

07 July 2012, 02:55 PM
Hi all,

Posted a thread a while ago asking for advice on my system. Now I am about to purchase, but I'm rather confused.

Due to pricing in Australia, I can't afford to get a GTX 580 3GB, so the choice is between GTX 560ti 2GB and GTX 580 1.5GB

I'm a generalist, mainly focusing on VFX. I use 3ds Max 2012, Mudbox 2012 and finalRender.

The next finalRender version will have some great improvements in regards to GPU rendering (and cebas is stressing the importance of more gpu ram), but at this time I only use it for previews while working on lighting/materials.

Out of the two cards mentioned, could anyone give some recommendations?

Edit: I understand the GTX 580 is faster, but I wondering if more ram on the 560ti would be better suited?


Daniel Dye.
