When you run SLI/Crossfire or have multi GPU video cards. The vram isn't pooled into one set of memory, it's duplicated for each GPU. 2 1GB cards in SLI doesn't let you use 2GB of vram. You still have the 1GB limit because each GPU has a copy of the memory in use. A standard GTX 295 has 2 GPUs and 1792mb of vram or 896mb per GPU. So in your case it's a 4 X 896 setup since you have 2 GTX 295s. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer daviddayag December 31, 2011 3:09:06 PM First answer : u r an idiot. Second answer : thanks... So my only option is to buy a new card. Also, i dont see any reason to use quad sli - the memory runs out way before the card's gpu even got to 30 % in games such as bf3.
