Video Card Usage % Question
Posted 13 June 2012 - 01:12 AM
I know that this GPU has 256 mb on the card and i have 4gb ram in the laptop; the v card uses memory sharing , just wondering if anyone knows why the bar would be filled up when im hardly doing anything .. No problems with it, just wondering why its like that, doesnt logically make sense to me

Probably because the card uses system memory. It's using memory to load/access the videos you're opening and then it uses more memory to play the videos through what ever media player you're using. Plus who knows how accurate this program is. Does it show you how much GPU processing power is being used? You sure you have 4gigs of memory? That program is displaying 2754 total and 1341 free.
im not computer illiterate, i know what my computer has lool.., 2754 + 1341 = ~4gb
2754 used, 1341 free

I'm not a Mac, but go find a better and more professional tool to measure these things.
Also 2750mb RAM used on almost nothing seems extreme to me, might want to look into that. Graphical desktop applications in general are a huge burden performance wise, so might want to cut back on those
