HBM is expensive and 16GB is overkill. I would rather see it ship with 8GB and a lower price. Can someone point me to a benchmark of a game using more than 8GB of vram?
Most don't, and a lot that do basically just dump textures into the VRAM in anticipation of them being needed (e.g. Black Ops III). As a frame of reference, The Witcher 3 can run great at 4K maxed out while using less than 3GB of VRAM. So this idea that cards are crippled by VRAM just doesn't have a lot of basis in reality. 6-8GB is probably the sweet spot, so shipping a card with 16GB of HBM just seems like overkill.
