unfortunately there is a difference, RAM speed. 4GB cards use 7Gbps and the 8GB uses 8Gbps chips. gamers nexus did a comparison video and the benefit of the 8Gbps shows.Because the 8GB version has zero difference in performance, and it makes sense to buy the 4GB. Nobody cares about the missing 2GB on the 1060 cause it'll make zero difference as well. None of these cards can effectively make good use of 8GB of vram.
