Hmmm, my GTX1080 only has 8GB of VRAM, and I'm certainly not looking to upgrade in the next few years, given how friggen expensive GPU's are. I wonder if I'll even be able to play this game at 1080P.

Man, I hope they fix this steaming pile of crap. Imagine having the gall to put minimum effort into a port of a ten year old game, rushing it to release when unfinished, then charging top dollar for it. Who do they think they are, Ubisoft?
You'd be fine if you're not looking to run at the ultra graphics settings. The video does show this eventually in the benchmarks. So although I like Hardware Unboxed, I do think that title is on the edge of being clickbaity. They do provide all the info and good conclusions, but it initially makes you think you need more than 8GB to run the game well at all. That isn't the case, although I get their point.

I doubt my 1080 could render more than the 'high' preset at 1080p anyway. And yeah, I saw that after watching the video a little more. Hate those clickbaity titles.

It's still a dumpster fire of a release.

You earn points throughout the game. Then you can spend them and get the cheats on further play throughs.

So there are a couple patches that were released, which picked up that I had changed my oodle dll file so I'm hoping that problem is fixed for everyone now.

Edit: and it crashed to desktop during a cut scene. Sigh. Putting away until there's another patch.

I wonder how much of the poor console port is responsible for the VRAM issues on 8 GB video cards. And I wonder if we will see more console developed games causing problems for 8 GB video cards. From what I can find out the PS5 and Xbox have unified RAM, and so they have to design the game to run in a set space, 16 GB in the case of the PS5 for example.

Since computers have dedicated system RAM and dedicated VRAM the developer has to do some gymnastics to split out game and video code, thus we see some really janky ports. But, this pool of RAM lets developers do things that they can't do on computers. Imagine if the RAM on a computer was a pool with a single addressable space, that would be interesting.

Just an observation, but I think that this is a nail in any 8 GB video cards that come out from this date forward. Make enough noise, and maybe NVidia will see. As for AMD, we have seen them putting more VRAM on cards, which is good, but we haven't heard a peep about any down stack cards yet.

Video cards with 8 GB of VRAM are still fine though, it just means that people have to be aware of the games out there that need to be tweaked to perform well within their limitations. It isn't as though we haven't seen this kind of thing before.

Agree. It seems this game is a no go for ultra and 8gb vram…otherwise there are sad 3070 owners getting worse performance than a 3060 (based on some reviews I have seen). As with everything, know the limits and work within them.
