PostSubject: Video Memory Size Question   Fri Dec 02, 2016 2:59 pm

Hi,

someone can explain me the video memory size thing?

I have an Geforce 980ti with 6GB vRam

according to this:

◘For Nvidia users

•Download |VramSizeTest|
•For people with 4GB VRAM or more run the VRamSizeDX9.exe and set this value in enblocal.ini
VideoMemorySizeMb=????
•For people with 3GB of VRAM run VRamSizeDX11.exe and set this value in enblocal.ini
VideoMemorySizeMb=????
*ENB host will use both your VRAM and your RAM and can lead to better performance
•For people with 2GB of VRAM or less
VideoMemorySizeMb=2048


I start VRamSizeDX9.exe and it shows 4064 MB without System RAM


With VRamSizeDX11.exe it shows me 48544 MB with System RAM


Why should i choose the lower Value according to the performance guide for 4GB+ vRAM ?


Thanks for your answers


Greeting
Bayardt

From :https://www.reddit.com/r/skyrimmods/wiki/enboost
unless this aint true anymore
[size=30]WIN10:[/size]

  • Set VideoMemorySizeMb to 4064 if you have 4GB of vram or more. Unfortunately Win10 caps vram usage for DirectX 9 applications at 4064mb (Skyrim uses DX9). This can be verified by running the VramSizeTest tool provided by the creator of ENB. (Simply download the tool from and run the DX9 version)
    If you have less then 4GB vram then simply run the VramSizeTest tool (link in the last sentence) and enter the value it gives you.
    [size=32]WIN8/8.1:

    [/size]

    • Download the VramSizeTest tool from the creator of ENB
    • Run the DX9 version (Skyrim uses DirectX 9)
    • Enter this number as the value for VideoMemorySizeMb.

    [size]
    [size=32]WIN7[/size]
    [/size]

    • If you are the lone 32 bit OS user, set it to 2048.

    [size]
    *For 64 bit:
    [/size]

    • Download the VramSizeTest tool from the creator of ENB
    • Run the DX9 version (Skyrim uses DirectX 9)
    • Enter this number as the value for VideoMemorySizeMb.

ENB host.exe uses VRAM detached from the Skyrim engine so you can use a little bit more.

You can monitor GPU usage with CPUID HWMonitor or MSI afterburner and see how much exactly.
I can't measure how much the pack can uses precisely because i have a 3GB VRAM GPU.

Well thats good to know at least, i cant ethier cause my comp shouldnt even be running this mod pack 1gb of gddr5 vram. thought the memory it can use is more than that i think it over flows to my normal ram or i strongly missunderstand more than i first thought.

I get anywhere from 20 to 100 frames depending where i am and the spawns are etc with enb off along with massive stutter where the frame rate still says its around 60. Im about to implement the frame rate limiter to 30 since i have a pretty old i5. I ran the texture compressor a number of times, it still looks slightly better than the game on the ps3, im also going to turn down the draw distance and shadows theyve been left at default. before i compressed the textures i couldnt go above 25 frames.

Skyrim Engine need to be capped at 60 or the physics and the engine could go nuts.

I recently found out that capping FPS with RivaTunerStatisticServer can lead to silky smooth movement in-game.
