not sure what it is but mine looks exactly like that.

Does this mem usage in Max Payne 3 look right? (everything maxed, except I'm using 2X AA)

So bloody frustrating. Delete my configs, jump into a game, game is using 1.6GB of VRAM, exit and come back into server and it's right back at 500-600MB unless I delete those files again! ARGH frown.gif

I used to get those errors a lot with my 7850s... I realized it was a bug with battlefield 3 because it just went away after an update.

Have you tried other games as Battlefield 3? I suppose that wasn't the only game you play. See if your framerate also dropped there, and let us know. Maybe it's something in BF3.

Thanks! Yeah, I do too, it's really frustrating! Everyone I've spoken to about this, has never heard of such a problem. I'll update if I ever do fix this.

When I get home tonight I will see what my 7970 is using in BF3.

edit...
I was just averaging around 1000mb usage.

What graphical settings were you using (including resolution)?
