Looking at the spec sheet really left a lot to be desired but I hate how a super budget card gets slagged for having 4GB of VRAM. There are a lot of things wrong with this card but it shouldn't be shocking that a card at the bottom the of the stack comes with super cut down hardware.
Low-end card is low-end.
Insert "this is my shocked face" gif.
That's now what we were arguing, what we were arguing was that a 2022 card would get beaten by 2016 card at same price and how it was a shameless cash grab to prey on the desperate. Or even lower priced it turns out for the intended old/budget PCIe3 audience, looking at you 570/470
The 4GB/PCIe scam/gimp is even worse than I thought it would be.
Imagine a 200$ card released in 2016 that couldn't even beat a 200$ card released in 2010.
This is the crux of the problem of that waste of sand, not that it's "low-end", but on that subject it's not even priced as low-end, it's priced as cheap mid-range and can't even beat cheap midrange from 6 years ago...
