    The demo was rendered internally at 3K resolution (around 3200 x 2000 pixels), which was downscaled to 1080p at 60 frames per second.
    Holy crap.

    Thats GFX ram...no good for VMs. 12 gigs of (non-gfx) ram isn't that expensive though...like 400 bucks or something.

    They prob took that choice because they wanted 2x gfx processing power. The 2x ram was just a side-effect. Pretty sure you could pull off identical results with 3-4 gigs.

    To be honest I don't know whether its possible to buy GDDR & use it as normal ram. I suppose its *theoretically* possible...so no need for corners just yet...
