Benchmarking Thread (Batman Origins benchmarks are up) - Page 2

post #11 of 57
i guess the only measure are the actual fps drops. had those with my 6870. i remember even at medium settings.

my 3GBs better hold up on BF4 at 1080. prolly 2MSAA will be fine by me.

you looking forward to that game?

Oh you are perfectly fine with the 3GB I can assure you. The vram usage will vary from a person to person but I believe BF4 could allocate around 3GB with my Titan. Again my understanding is that the more vram, the more it uses but not necessarily giving performance boost.

 

In your situation I would expect 2.5gbish vram usage, but again these are just my random guesses.

 

BTW Bioshock Infinite is using crazy amout of Vram. 3588 is the top I have seen today. Crazy.

i hope so, iARDAs. i'll try Bioshock and see what i get.

I'm really loving this thread alot. Thank You iArdas. Have it bookmarked now. When I buy a new gpu, the first thing I do is run Crysis 3 then BF3. For a long time (2010-2013) BF3 was my personal "benchmark", if my gpu passes hours of gaming in BF3, I consider it fully stable, now it's the same for Crysis 3. Bioshock Infinite using 3.5 @ 2560@1440p is indeed insane. Btw, I have 2x7950s in crossfire, and when I game in Crysis 3 my MSI Afterburner says my GPU Memory Usage is over 4000MB. I know it does not actually use 4GB, but would you know why it reads it as such? Is it using 2GB per gpu and switching back and forth, or using 1.5GB each and keeping 1GB as a precaution?

Thanks for the kind words. Just wanted to show the possible vram usage scenarios at high resolution gaming and this thread will only evolve and any input or any tests are always welcomed. A person probably does not need a over 3GB GPU to play Bioshock Infinite at Ultra settings, but in my case when there is loads of memory available, my GPU can utilize up to 3588gb of Vram. It is mostly around 2000ish indoors but outdoors it is much more.

 

I am truly looking forward to Battlefield 4 myself as to see what will be the Vram usage while gaming on a 1440p monitor. I should also redownload Crysis 2 and purchase Crysis 3 for further tests.

 

About your 4GB question, I unfortunately do not have an answer. We have folks in here that know waay better than me when it comes to vram and I hope they can see this thread and contribute to the discussion.

Skyrim+mods eats up alot of vram, but I remember reading something along the lines of a vram limit regardless of hardware

My Skyrim mods use all my VRAM (2GB) but I suspect it would use most of 3GB if I had it. The limit you mention is a RAM limit though, not VRAM.

I will install Skyrim and run some tests with vanilla and mods.

There are so many different mods rolleyes.gif took me nearly 30 hours following a guide to get mine done. Then you got texture optimisations, etc... and Automatic Variants. If you grab lots of large (2k textures is standard, though there is a decent size 4k pack out) you should get interesting results.

Could I also ask that you try increase uGridstoLoad (in skyrim.ini) to 7 - I've tried it a few times but it makes my game crash. Not sure if it's due to VRAM or just the fact I'm running quite a few scripted mods (which have a much larger area to cover at 7). Just make sure you back up the save before switching to 7 and it will only make any difference outdoors.

This thread is a really good idea though, I feel much more comfortable recommendeding higher VRAM GPUs with some hard numbers.

I don't know how valuable this info is...there are some games that seem to just eat up all the VRAM they can, but if you play the same game on half the amount of VRAM it will play no different.

Really need to have a resolution and fps on the chart as well.
