Why did Nvidia stop cramming ridiculous amounts of RAM into laptop GPUs?

    Correct me if I am wrong but VRAM is mirrored not shared, unless this has recently changed?

    Nvidia was doing that because the mobile cards were lacking in other areas, purely for appeal to the ignorant. There's no reason to do so when you're selling 1:1 desktop chips.

    VRAM is also ridiculously expensive right now, so why waste money?

    No, just because you feel like it cant run on 12GB vram doesnt make it shared.

    That is not logical in the slightest.

    Not saying it's shared just saying I don't feel it would run off 12GB VRAM

    Then get some data, having discussions based on feels is a waste of everyone's time.

    In real, a gtx 1080 dosent need 8gb vram, its usefull only when sli kicks in! With dual gtx 1080, the processing powrr becomes heavyenought to require 8gb vram! Those old cards werent powerfull enough to use that ram!

    Actually you can easily hit over 6GB of vram in R6 Siege and thats a 2015 title.
