How much longer will 4gb cards work before I’ll need to upgrade to 8gb?

    On solo ETH (not dual mining) I did see memory used, on each GPU, bellow 2.8GB using nvidia-smi on Linux (this was 2 weeks ago, cannot recheck today because I am back on Windows and don't know which tool to do it).

    So basically I think (might be wrong) the demand on GPU memory is still under 3GB. How long will remain under 4GB I do not know that.

    You should be able to use Hwinfo64 for Windows for checking how big the mem load is on each GPU.
