Default VRAM monitor not visible load more than 4 GB - 12-29-2016, 12:13 | posts: 2

Hi, after replacing the video card (it was 2 GB, 8 GB was) VRAM boot monitor does not show the download more than 4 GB - comes to this mark and reset (starts counting again from zero). Windows 7x64 Pro, MSI rx 470 Armor 8 GB, "dxdiag" shows 4095 MB is available, how to fix?

D3D9 apps don't have access to more than 4GB of VRAM.

Guests from overclockers.ru? You may "fix" it by upgrading your OS to Win8 or newer version only. Microsoft D3DKMT performance counter, which is a data source form VRAM usage is MSIAB, GPU-Z, AIDA and similar tools is 32-bit under Windows 7 and Vista, so it cannot report >4Gb values. Newer OS versions use 64-bit performance counter.

Thank you, this only applies to performance counters? In game is all ok?
