There is a lot of misconception with using and caching VRAM. 3GB is plenty for 1440P and Titanfall is no exception. People tend to look at their monitoring software and say "Look, it's using all my VRAM!"
Dependant on the game, it will cache what is needed and throw what isn't out as when the game requires it. If the game is buffering the next 10 frames at 1440P on a Titan it will store 3-4GB say in Titanfall. Where as on the Ti it just won't cache as much, and also a lot of data that isn't required on screen any more will be discarded quicker, but the buffer will appear more full.
It's not an accurate representation. I can max out 4XMSAA and insane textures on my Ti at 1440P in Titanfall, the game that apparently has "Insane VRAM requirements". Until such a time a game gets excessive stuttering, and eventually grinds to a hault, your VRAM is doing a perfectly acceptable job.Edited by Silent Scone - 3/25/14 at 9:03am
