On a side note, I’ve run some testing in some games and it’s running pretty much everything maxed at 1080p well over 60 FPS. Most games don’t use more than 4 gigs of vram, so 8 might be overkill.
Also, the Origin Access program is really sweet. $30 bucks to get a bunch of current AAA games. I played assassins creed, mass effect, and battlefield 1. The temps are cooler than my 970, but I have noticed the cpu temps rose slightly. Maybe it is working harder now?
