Memory usage in the Ctrl-Pause view

Hi all,

 

Question: with the Ctrl-Pause twice, you get the expanded FPS window top left corner.¡

 

Nice feature, it shows also 'memory usage'. What is that? Memory by graphics card?

 

Mine is always 2790 mb, so I guess that's my HD7950 full memory in cache.

 

But then, I always hear, DCS is much more CPU dependent, not so much GPU.

 

Can somebody wiser than me shine his/her light on this? Thanks! Greetz from Holland.

I would imagine it's actual system memory usage--the fact that it doesn't change suggests it's everything, preloaded. I'm not a graphics expert by any means, but I would expect the graphics memory usage to change based on what's currently in the scene being rendered. You could verify that by making a mission, checking memory usage, adding more things out of sight range (across the theater would definitely be safe), and checking again.
