I know that the RX 580 at 1080p doesn't fully utilize the 8gb that it comes with and that it cant always hit 144 fps at the highest settings. I am perfectly fine with bumping some settings down to medium or so if ti means gaining some extra fluidity. My only question is, that in the case that there is only about a $30 difference between the 4gb and 8gb model, will I miss the extra 4gb in the long run?
According to this video even at max settings it does not seems like those extra 4gb come into play. I know that some games initially upon release showed a great difference between the 4gb and 8gb variant, but I have heard that the data in these cases often even out after a few patches from the developers or some fresh drivers from AMD. Should I wait fro the 590 to release instead?
