Question Which card do I give away out of two? Sapphire Nitro+ 570 4gb, or a regular 570 with 8gb?

Hi all,

I have two graphics cards and a relative in need of a replacement card. I have two Radeon 570s.... one is the Nitro+ from Sapphire, with 4gb of memory, and the other is an MSI (I think, have to double check) Radeon 570 with 8gb. Which is the one more worth keeping? It's for my son's PC who plays lots of Minecraft, Roblox and has started dabbling into Warzone and other shooters as well.

Appreciate the help!

I'd keep the 8GB card. 4GB is pretty darn limiting, even at that performance tier.

Yeah and besides, you could probably find some miner out of their skull enough to give you $600 for the 8 GB card.

As long as the 8GB one has an adequate cooler, keep it. But I know when I had my RX480 Nitro+ 4GB (until just about a year ago), I had yet to run into a game where 4GB was a limiting factor at 1080P with the settings that the card could handle.

both cards will perform the same, more or less. The Nitro+ is usually a great performer.

I had bought an Asus Strix 570 4GB for my nephew and it works just fine and was faster than my 1060 3GB card.
