if skyrim passes 3.1-3.1gb vram, it will crash. this is a well known skryim "bug". cant really call it a bug, its part of the game engine and will "never" be fixed. never as in maybe
if hackers out there find a way to mod the game.... but the dev team will never fix it. other than that, obviously because of texture/mesh mods skyrims is by far the most demanding vram game ever released.
other more modern games with modern engines like (insert heavy dx11 title here) should just offload the excess vram onto the system memory and wont "crash" but will start to bog and fps goes to the floor.Edited by nikoli707 - 2/4/14 at 9:26pm
