We all know gtx 970 has 3.5 fast ram and 0,5 slow ram, if i overclock it with msi afterburner let's say +300ram will i get 3800 fast ram together?
Thanks for answers
Overclocking VRAM doesn't affect the usage or allocation of video memory in games/applications. Overclocking VRAM will increase its bandwidth [and latency if its timings remain the same] which in turn will improve GPU performance.Originally Posted by Vladimir21
WIll overclocking ram lower the ram usage during gameplay or what will it do for games?
the way for the end user to reduce the vram usage is reducing image quality\settings /textures size/quality,reducing the resolution and/or reducing the antialiasing levels,but regardless of the changes you can do to the vram speed,the way nvidia organized the Vram is split up in 2 parts 3.5GB(7x 32bit memory each) and 0.5GB(1x32bit memory) given the odd SMM number http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/NVIDIA-Discloses-Full-Memory-Structure-and-Limitations-GTX-970Originally Posted by Vladimir21
Right now i play a game and it goes above 3500 ram i start getting fps drops etc. WIll overclocking ram lower the ram usage during gameplay or what will it do for games?
