100% GPU Memory usage while gaming ?

my PC Specs are
Intel Core i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz
32 GB RAM
GeForce GTX 1050 - 2GB DRAM

sometimes while playing games, my DRAM (Dedicated Video RAM) usage skyrockets to 100%. is this normal? will it damage the GPU in any way? thanks.

Edit:
one of the games is called "Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2" and im not running it on ultra settings, also other players from the game who use GeForce cards report that the game shouldn't exceed 1 GB VRAM usage.

  1. Best answer
    It’s most likely normal. The 1050 doesn’t have much vram (vs a 1060 6gb or above) and is trying to give you the smoothest experience possible for what you have. I don’t see any potential bottlenecks either.
  2. I agree probably normal depending on the settings you are using for the game and your resolution. No it wont hurt the card.
  3. Where did you get the game from?
