I have the Asus HD4830 512MB card. It's listed in dxdiag as having 1GB memory. Anyone seen this before? Just wondering if I somehow got shipped the the wrong card, or if there's some other reason why it's reporting wrong. The 4830 doesn't even seem to be listed on the Asus website.
Try right clicking your desktop -> personalize -> display settings -> advanced settings then look in the adaptors tab. It should show you how much video memory you have, both dedicated and shared. I had the 1GB HD 4870 but was running 2GB of video memory 1GB dedicated (from the card) and 1GB shared (from the system memory). Sounds to me like this might be the case for you too.
Interesting. Just checked the advanced settings and it still reads 1024. Checked the ATI Control Center as well. Graphics hardware info shows memory size 1024 MB. Did I just get lucky?
i wouldnt call it luck if you're ccc hardware info looks like this:
this is my old semi-defective 4850. notice the type of memory (1024 Hypermemory). this was a 4850 512mb card though. never worked right as i figured that somethings wrong with the GDDR that it shipped with. BSODs on Race Driver Grid everytime you use the replay/retry feature, BSODs on crysis/warhead. or maybe the card's BIOS was at fault, too.
99.9% sure it's GDDR3 in CCC. The .1% is because you made me think about it, and there's always room for doubt. Will check tonight and try and post some screens.
Guess I could toss in my old 1950 Pro and see how it reads as well. I swapped it out once before because of the vid glitches, and they occured with that card too. Because of that, I'd ruled out the video card. I am however, curious to know if there's something wrong with the card. I've had it for a couple of weeks, and would rather RMA thru nweegg than Asus.
