I see a lot of people claiming that the 3070 is not a good purchase due to its 8gb of vram whereas the ps5 has 16gb. But from my understand ing the 16gb is split between system memory and vram right? Anyone know how much is assigned to each task?

your understanding is correct. The assumption that 16GB is the "new norm for GPUs" is flawed because the 16GB is shared between the CPU and GPU dynamically.


Not to mention the 4k performance of the 10GB 3080 is superior to the 4K performance of the 16GB 6800 XT in many modern titles.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

You're trying to decide between console and PC based on Vram specs? There are much more important things to consider here.

No sorry should have specified. I was just trying to decide if I should buy a 3070. People were trying to claim that 8gb won't be enough for newer games due to the new console specs.
