That was not just the ram of the GPU that different cpu and amount of ram are also a lot different. I want to know whatever to choose standard model or customize and wait are worth it. But thank anyway
So hopefully I can help. I was in the SAME situation as you, in fact I asked the same question lol I wanted the i9 2.3 but couldn't figure if 4GB of VRAM is enough or should I do 8BG, Adorama has the 4GB model $350 cheaper than the 8GB VRAM so it was a big difference in cost. So here what I did, I went to my local apple store with my flash drive, On the drive I had a 28 minute 4K 60FPS video I shot for my vlogs that was a Final cut file that had my timelines and music,cuts etc. The video was about 8GBs in size. I hit render on both computers, they both finished about the same time, the 8GB model finished just a few seconds faster, however I noted while the 4GB GPU was maxed out on VRAM the whole time while the 8GB model used about 6.5GB VRAM while exporting the movie. Since I will be using this for mainly video editing it was a no brainer to get the 8GB model for me. I know it not scientific and have numbers but hopefully that helped a bit.
Would have been a no brainer for me too, but the other way. A 28 minute clip only finished a few seconds faster? To me, that means the 8GB is not worth it.
Thats what im thinking as well, The project I uploaded just had 3 timelines and one of the time lines was just music. Some of my videos I have 6-8 timelines going from drone shots, multi cameras etc so I figured if the 4GB was already maxed out on the simple project I would much have the little ram boost just in case.I wonder if the extra RAM is more useful when editing complex projects and so forth, rather than during rendering.
You are more than happy to post reviews where they compare that exact differences. I have a hard time there is such a config out yet with cheapest cpu, smallest ssd and the most expensive gfx card.OP asks for a direct comparison between two identical computers with ONLY the GPU different, so you blindly link a test of two completely different computers with different GPUs, different RAM, different versions of the i9, and different SSDs? Wtf.
Wow, that is exactly what I was looking for! LoL is the only game I paly to relax. What settings did you use? Resolution? Thank you!
WOW classic on 5300m. Full resolution, and setting around 4 gives me 40-50 fps. May upgrade to 5500m before the returning period is expired.
Oh man can you try at 1920x1200? Damm, might upgrade after all... Please tell me more about this is it on Mac OS or Windows? WOW is my main game
Played wow classic for about 1hr today. Mac OS, can't bother install bootcamp ATM. Here are my settings: View attachment 879189
At this setting round 45-60 fps depends on where I am at. Currently levelling at Tanaris averaging 52-60. At 100% resolution is around 35-50. Im very impressed TBH.
