Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X 8GB and 4GB review: is 8GB useful?

What is the benefit of double the amount of memory?


Benchmarks: 3DMark / Battlefield 4

The 8GB and 4GB version of the Vapor-X cards perform basically identical in 3DMark and Battlefield 4: all differences are within the accuracy of the benchmarks. Both cards perform similar to the GTX 970, although AMD clearly outperforms Nvidia in Battlefield in Ultra HD.
