How to determine vram use?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm considering upgrading to a 6950 for the 2gb vram (and obviously faster core) but want to make sure that it is the vram killin me when gaming in eyefinity. Is there a program that monitors vram usage? Thought afterburner did but I cant find it in there.

Thanks

There isn't any way to monitor vram usage on the Cayman architecture as far as I'm aware. However you can tell when you're vram choke because the game will come to a crashing halt, and stutter about as it swaps textures in and out of memory each time you move from one new perspective to another.

Sounds about right, really only playing wow and that stutters not maxed. I know its a CPU bound game mostly but my 2500k @ 4.6 should do it well enough id think. Guess only way to know is test one from frys lol

You can't tell on vram usage on ATi cards. I would lower the res and see if the problem persists and gradually rasie it.
