VRamSizeDX9 with a 1080Ti on Windows 10


Hello everybody,


Alright so here is my rig: I got a 7700K, a GTX1080 Ti and 16GB Ram on Windows 10. 

I ran the VRamSizeTest for DX9 and I only get 4096. 


Although I also read that this limit does not apply anymore on W10. Cause... I obviously have more than 4GB VRam... 


Windows 8/8.1 users: Microsoft has, unintentionally, introduced a memory limit for DirectX 9 games/software. This limit is 4GBs (4096) and there is nothing which can be done to circumvent this limit. For users seeing the VRamSizeTest tool reporting 4064 or similar, this is not a mistake. This is actually the limit for the OS in use and the maximum value you can set the VideoMemorySizeMb to. This bug was fixed for Windows 10 in the 2017 Fall Creator's Update, but still affects Windows 8/8.1.


Could somebody help me? 


I am running Realvision ENB with mods (exactly as it is describes and I am desperatly trying to set it so that I won't have any drop... It does not matter how many FPS I get (around 80 in 2K and 120 in Full HD) I always get regularly drops down to 40 FPS, whenever I am in Skyrim... But like the game stops for 1ms. This is really annoying. 


To be honest, I do not really understand what S.T.E.P is... (I'm not a native english speaker). I guess It is one list of mod that optimizes ENB for Skyrim but I cannot find it anywhere. 


Thank you very much for your answer :)

This has been answered on your other posting: https://forum.step-project.com/topic/2613-ctd-and-performance-patch-enboost-by-boris-vorontsov/?p=210079


Please don't double post.


STEP is a modding Guide to achieve enhanced visuals in the vanilla style of the game: https://wiki.step-project.com/STEP:2.10.0

Many will use STEP as a baseline to build up their game; using it as a stable foundation on which to build.


Also, welcome to the forums!

Thank you very much four your answer. I am sorry for the double post. I thought I would not get an answer on the other post. 


And... this update is not even available in my country... so I guess I will wait. 


Thank you anyway and sorry again for the double post, that will not happen again :)

      I use the STEP ENB (light) and which looks good and works well 99.9% of the time. But sometimes, when I move from an indoor cell into Skyrim, the graphics turn dark blue (during the day)  or black (at night). What I mean is, I can barely see the surroundings and lights are slightly more visible, but the screen is mostly a uniform blue or black color? This makes it impossible to see when you are going. Most of the time this is solved by going back indoors then back out. Yesterday however, I had to reload a save (not an autosave) to get it to turn normal again, losing progress.
      I haven't been able to reproduce this nor does it happen very often. I am just wondering if someone else is experiencing this and what could possibly be the cause? I know next to nothing about ENBs, so I am unable to troubleshoot this myself. I also forgot to take a screenshot of it. I will add one when/if it happens again.

      So I'm having this issue where ENB seams to break the "seamless" horizon provided by cathedral weathers. Doesn't seem to matter what ENB I use, no conflicts in Xedit however I have read on a few forums (STEP) that this issue seems to be present no matter what and the more detailed rendering offered by ENB can make this issue more noticeable. Also this definitely seems more prominent during dawn/dusk nor really visible during other times. I'm not sure if it's really a mod issue, or if it's just another one of those fugly bethesda seams that we all inevitably see. ENB doesn't seem to matter I always notice this on clear dawn/dusks. Any input or advice would be appreciated. (Issue is easier to see in game than in screenshots) Here's  a link to a post I made on LL with screenshots. https://www.loverslab.com/topic/182711-skyrim-se-enbs-and-sky-mesh-issue/#comment-3631259
