Showing Vram usage

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is there a setting in AB or a similar program that will show you real time Vram usage amounts? I must be missing it somewhere...

Im running Crysis in eyefinity and for some reason my cards are only reading 60-75% usage. The catch is Im only getting 25-32 FPS. Trying to narrow down what is going on.

Its not a huge emergency as I have several new cards on the way from the egg.

Afterburner has the option to display VRAM usage, and it's in real time. But regardless, more VRAM usage doesn't equal higher FPS.

Thanks for the info. Are you sure about the second part? If im playing at 5760x1080 and the game is only using the same amount of VRAM that it would be in 1920x1080, I would assume that getting the GPU to use the full amount of VRAM would equal higher FPS. Afterall, it should be rendering 3 times the amount of pixels...

Who provides the quantity of fps, is your card's clocks. The VRAM just don't let them fall in High res.
I've had a 8800GTS 320MB and further than 1280X1024, the fps started decreasing.

If you were out of vRAM, you would get 1 fps.

Less vram usage might mean better performance actually.

Good info from you both. I have a few more questions if you dont mind

1)Can you think of a reason why 1920x1080 would use 75% of the GPUs and 5760x1080 would use the same amount of processing power? One would assume that with the higher amount of pixels on the screen the cards would be working or using more resources.

2)I have noticed lower fps on several games where I did turn up the AA and AF, but lowered the texture settings. Does AA and AF use more processing power than say running the game at higher texture settings with them off?
