Hey guys, so I was looking at my MSI AfterBurner and opened it up to see how much memory my GPU eats up during games. When I opened it up, under the memory setting it says "Memory Usage, MB" and then says 2048 as the top amount it can use. My GPU is a ASUS GTX 460 1gb and GPU-Z reports 1gb VRAM, but is it possible that GPU-Z is not reading from the RAM itself and maybe is reading from something else because MSI AB reports what looks like 2gb. So my main question is, could this possibly be a 2gb card whith the wrong label?
If it's a 2GB card with the wrong label , you can't complain really :') best way to check what's going on is to run a different application which can tell you what parts you are using etc. You can also load GTA IV and see how much memory the graphic settings allows you to use.
Haha yeah I know! I hope it's 2gb, that'd rock! Sadly, I don't own GTA IV. What other programs would you suggest? I could also run BF3 on max settings to see f it goes over 1gb. I do only run a 1280 x 1024 monitor though, so I am not sure I can max a whole 1gb with that resolution, but i'll give it a shot!
