Could care less about that article, amateur at best. Believe my lying eyes more. Seriously, if you can't tell the difference that means then no one else can? World revolves around you? If one can't tell the difference between a cheap TN panel to a high end IPS, good for then since they won't really need to buy an expensive GPU to push that gaming experience. There are more factors involved, preferences, what one looks at maybe totally different on what someone else looks at in the game. Anyways with Doom 2016, Nightmare gave a much better depth/contrast overall to my experience and I could definitely tell between the settings.The article and screenshots align with what I said. Show me something that aligns with what you said where nightmare was a nice and worthwhile visual improvement. I went back and played some doom 2016 when I got the 1080TI in 2017 so I could see nightmare. Flipping back and forth I don’t remember being able to see a difference aside from thinking maybe I see more sparks flying around. maybe? I remember it being ridiculously difficult to see any difference at all. In the heyday of the Fury X that game was the only game I ran across that you could hit the VRAM limits on a single display. There was so much grief about 4GB not being enough for AMDs flagship card, but it never practically was an issue while the card was current gen. By the time it actually mattered Fury X was old news. When I bought my 2080 I read the same thing about 8GB VRAM not being enough. That didn’t pan out either. I see history repeating here - that’s all. I personally don’t see $300 justifying an extra 10GB of RAM. The extra speed and RTX cores might justify the 3080Ti, but not the RAM. In the end that’s just my own opinion/experience. People will buy what they will.
