I have a crossfire'd pair of gigabyte 5850's in my rig, each with 1048mb of VRAM and from all the research I have done I thought that crossfire doesn't combine that memory
And yet shogun 2 total war's graphics menu is telling me that I have 1889mb of video memory...
Are my cards really sharing memory?
Or is it possible that all of the graphics options I have turned on ADD UP to 1889mb? I highly doubt that is the case however since I run a consistent 50fps with all the stuff I have turned on which should mean my VRAM isn't bottlenecking right?
I'm so confused
Here's all the stuff I have activated if it helps:
shadow quality: ultra
particle effects: ultra
terrain,grass,trees,sky, and water all set at ultra
depth of field: high
soft shadows: on
Shader model 5
texture filter: anisotropic x16
Any help would be much appreciated
and of course I'm in 1080p
