I think my point is being missed on this thread, so I'll repeat it.

There are suggestions here that VR grabs any VRAM it can get, and that a GPU card with loads of VRAM will resolve that issue and help performance. My point is that in most scenarios my DCS allocation is 7-8Gb VRAM with the occasional 10Gb on a 11Gb card, so the previous logic doesn't apply.

Know what you mean, but see attached. Who knows?

If it is an answer to my comment on the difference between fpsvr and GPU-Z, I already did calculate Gb to Mb and it do not explain the difference. The reported VRAM usage differs by a couple of hundred Mb.

Anyway, Im always above 10Gb when gaming.

From the memory I saw stutter when using settings very close to 11Gb. My guess is with a swap to a 3080 I would have to lower the settings that affect the VRAM usage.

And we are throwing out examples of DCS allocating more than 10gb in VR. While it may not be actual used, it gives me pause that some modules don't allocate over 10gb and some do with my and Gunnars Driver settings in VR.

Which to bring it back to the thread, makes me hesitant over the potential 3-5 year life of the card, that a 3080 10gb will have enough VRAM through the length of service life.
