This is old news for me, but still interesting. I don't really think we we will have much need for 512meg vid cards, but maybe in the future they will be more useful.

Well it means that the already immense graphics in the game can be improved, not get higher fps!!! The new unreal engine is the most graphically challenging engine I have ever seen and really actually demands alot of graphic power!!
