VRAM Use - Will this game work with a 2GB frame buffer?

In Far Cry 5, anyone with 3GB of more VRAM should have no real issues, as any GPU that is capable of running the game at 4K will undoubtedly have more than 4GB of VRAM. 

Using our 2GB R9 380 and GTX 960 didn't prove to be problematic in Far Cry 5, as the game did a great job staying within the frame buffer by using lower resolution assets. This limitation presented a minimal visual difference at 1080p and resulted in no VRAM related slowdown.

It really is difficult to tell, grass draw distance is one of the few things that I can see as well as some changes to in-game reflections. Not a huge deal of difference.Quote

Honestly unless you really look for differences it's hard to spot them, as WYP has said and the extended shadows there is very little difference when actually playing the game.Quote
