I checked CoolingConfigurator.com and the 3GB EVGA's were visual only. Would there be more chips in the 3GB model? Or just higher density i wonder. Probably not enough room on the PCB for more, then did they stick with the same layout....

Of course that is just EKs products, which some people feel are the devils products.

ti would probably just be higher density chips or on the back of the card. I cant see anybody redoing a reference card to add double the ram.

I have a EK 580 backplate and it has machine spots for mem chips so I am pretty sure the card would just have chips on the back of the card.

Chip locations on the EVGA card stay the same. They just use ICs with a higher density.
