    I wouldn't worry you have plenty of overhead.

    Same here on 970. Up to 3GB in menu and maxing out in game. Was around 3-3,3GB in game before. And setting low-ultra textures doesn't make any difference in VRAM usage.

    I understand that my actual ram is not fully used but having RAM used means low performance and lag which is a big NO.
    besides have you seen my graphics settings? they are as low as anyone can get on a GTX970 that's ridiculous.

    Exactly texture settings don't make any difference or even if they do the difference is minimal.
    What i don't understand is why i'm still getting this high vram use despite lowest settings.

    Are you talking about RAM or VRAM now?

    What did you mean by "i got plenty of overhead" ?
    I assumed that you were talking about overhead meaning RAM because my GPU only has 4GB of VRAM and only 3.5GB is fast one and my VRAM is maxing out which shouldn't happen at lowest settings.All this means it's either a issue or bad optimisation.

    A GTX 970 has 3.5+0.5 GB of RAM, so no overhead.

    Btw. there's no telling what's simply requested and allocated by the game (often everything) and actually needed.

    Personally I haven't noticed a difference with this patch but I always suspected more VRAM would lead to less bottlenecks in ACC.

    I don't mind high usage if my settings are high but even on lowest settings this amount of usage is ridiculous for me PLUS this usage was in hotlap mode offline no A.I no nothing even dynamic weather was turned off.
    I don't think this amount of VRAM makes sense.

    One thing i do notice is that even on lowest settings there are lot of details still rendered even the reflection on car paint ! Which tells me that low settings are NOT low enough.

    as long as fps is good i think 970 will do
    i can play with AMS level of graphics lol.

    970 is still enough to play new games with at least medium-high settings in 108op. Thing is if ACC has almost 10 years old gtx460 with 2 GB VRAM as minimum requirement it should be looked into IMO.

    edit: Also i would think resolution change takes big chunk of VRAM used but when i changed to 720p it's only around 200MB less.

    Now that you mentioned this, I feelt some stuttering, after last update, I thought it was my PC, but I have a GTX 970 4GB and probably is the VRAM being maxed. I hope they revert this back, before the gameplay was very smooth with a tweaked video settings.

    Note: The GTX 970 has 4GB ram, but 500mb of this had its direct channel to the GPU removed when the board got downgraded from 980 to 970. So 500mb of the 4gb has a slower channel and is not recommended to be used during game play It can cause stuttering ...
