Well, Fallout 4 consumes a lot of Ram when you increase uGridsToLoad, because you drastically increase the amount of the world that is rendered in detail.

Awesome, what plans are those?

Also he's maxing out his memory because he's abusing uGrids which is a function in the game engine that loads assets into memory that don't need to be there. Brilliance.

This is a german article, but just compare images 16 and 17 here:
http://www.golem.de/news/fallout-4-im-techniktest-endzeit-evolution-entdeckt-1511-117383-2.html

Fallout 4 is not so beautiful in close-ups, imho, but in scenery.

EDIT: I tried uGridsToLoad=21, but it wouldn't even bother to start. Not after a LONG waiting period. The only thing I am not sure about: where is the limit due to my 6 GB of Vram?

With VR SLI you can have per-eye dedicated GPUs.

This isn't the thread for that discussion, you'd have to look at the guides. Depending on the value ugrids will load more assets into memory. A high enough value probably is enough to exhaust the frame buffer.

It was easy enough to dictate in the previous games because the executable was limited to 32bit so you were limited to the memory you were able to allocate. Now the crazy kids are able to access more memory they're free to break the game.

Of course, and I didn't mean to. I was asked whether I need 32GB, I just tried to explain my thoughts.

Thanks for the further details. It would probably be cool with your two Titan X, though! smile.gif

Ahh I was wondering. Ill get to that game at some point.

Hmm that has changed my opinion on SLI at the moment. I will have to rethink before I preorder my oculus.

Thanks for the link. thumb.gif

Welcome.
post #3660 of 5744
ASUS AI Suite 3, yay or nay?

As my previous post described I can't seem to properly set fan curves in UEFI so I might have to re-install AI Suite.
I don't recall what made me uninstall it in the first place, maybe I just wanted to tidy up, but what's the general consensus?
