Maximum VideoMemorySizeMb

Question

So, I know that the maximum VideoMemorySizeMb on Win10 is 4064, my question is does this include the ResevedMemorySizeMb, or is that additional memory? For example, I have an GTX 1070 8 Gb video card could I allocate VideoMemorySizeMb=4064 and ResevedMemorySizeMb=1024? or would that limit my VideoMemorySizeMb to 3040?

 

Cheers,

Good question. I've not had to deal with the limit myself since I chose to stick with Win 7. That is WAY too much reserved memory in any case.

@ Darth,

I would caution recommending users do that without knowing their memory limits. It's very possible to use up all the available memory when using the auto feature. It's one of the reasons we recommend users using Boris's vram tool over the auto detection method.

I only run an AMD R9 280 3GB and I have mine set to

 

VideoMemorySizeMb=4064

ResevedMemorySizeMb=64
AutodetectVideoMemorySize=false

 

I run about 200 mods with some retextures and I never drop below 30fps at the lowest even with an enb from Slothking

 

But try both ways as either way can work just fine for you, the STEP recommendation is to get reserved as low as possible for Skyrim, so you have more memory available for VideoMemorySizeMB

Personal testing on your own system is way more valuable than anything any of us could offer as each system is so radically different.

i would recommend you actually set:

 

VideoMemorySizeMb=0

AutodetectVideoMemorySize=true

I use this setting as well. Never have any problem. The auto detect got exact same number as VRAM tool.

For me Autodetect ALWAYS returns exactly the same figure (shown in the ENB startup text in Main Menu) as running the tool and means I can switch between Win7 and Win10 without having to edit the ini each time.
