Problem with V-RAM ussage in skyrim....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of a mod to unlock the v-ram usage for skyrim. I have changed my max possible v-ram to 3072mb in all the .ini files but with some light mods and 2k texture and ENB modding my 7970GHz edition is only putting out 30-40 fps outside and it is only using like 45% of my vram and 85% on my gpu and its upsetting me to no end I spent 6 hours trying to get everything to work right but no luck.

Sometimes low gpu % is due to CPU use/bottleneck. Also check your prerendered frames. For Radeonpro it is called flip que I think. Set to 0 from 5 increased % gpu from 65 to 90.

I don't think my 2600k at 4.6 GHz is bottlenecking my gpu will check that out though

First, your CPU (i7 2600K) is just fine, so discount any thought of a CPU bottleneck, it's not causing your issue. Skyrim isn't actually that much of a VRAM hog so it's possible it's only using 45% of your 3GB because it only needs that much. I don't own a AMD card so I can't be certain but I wouldn't worry so much about VRAM usage as I would about your GPU usage %. 85% seems a little low, but it's possible again that that card doesn't play nice with Skyrim with ENB type mods enabled for some reason. The ENB series are definitely the most performance-reducing mod available for Skyrim, it kills my FPS as well on SLI GTX 580s so I don't use it since I like to keep a solid 60FPS. I also use the Skyrim HD texture mod and I only have 1.5GB of VRAM and I have absolutely no issues. It's rare that I see my VRAM usage go all the way up to 1.5GB even with the 28 mods I have installed... Skyrim HD, SKSE, Climates of Tamriel, Frostfall, Pure Waters, Realistic Lighting, etc etc. I've also modified my .ini so that it loads 7 grids instead of 5 for better distances, and I have the number of trees and grass increased by a factor of 5 or so. 0 issues, 60FPS solid at all times. If I had ENB, I wouldn't be able to do any of that.

If you can't find a fix, I recommend ditching ENB. There are enough mods out there that make Skyrim look absolutely stunning without having to resort to an ENB mod which will almost always guarantee a noticeable performance hit.

Ya I use all the mods you mentioned too. I may just switch back to realistic lighting mod and ditch enb... I just love the way it looks and it sucks that there is more head room with my card that the game is not using, there is diffidently a noticeable difference between 40 fps and 60.
