Between Forums and Youtube comments, I probably run across this misconception at least a dozen times a day, maybe more. Hopefully some of the big Youtubers like GamerNexus can put out some content addressing this, so that we may finally help people to understand the picture of what's going on here.
Rather than explain this outright, I will instead pose a question to you, and hopefully by answering it, you can understand what this misconception is.
I have an RTX 2080, which has 8GB of VRAM. Using completely identical settings to yours in RE7, my system is showing 7GB, give or take, of total VRAM usage. Yet the game runs exactly the same, looks exactly the same, and has no stuttering whatsoever.
Example 2. Black Ops 4, while running on a Titan RTX, shows total VRAM usage as 16GB. Running the same exact game, on the same exact settings, shows 7Gb of VRAM usage on an 8GB card, yet the game runs and looks exactly the same, with no stuttering.
Ask yourself why this is.
