    hey,
    I do use RT for overclocking and monitoring my Graphicscard/System a longer time now, but with new Vista64 RT seems not to be able to read the actual VRAM-Usage on my 88. It says 15.63MB .. regardless if I'm on my Desktop or in a Game like COH which actually consumes far above 800MB under XP64.

    Is there a solve for it?

    Version of RT is 2.01

    Solution is: RTFM. VidMem plugin description tells the following:


    This plugin provides Videomemory usage, Local videomemory usage and Non-local videomemory usage hardware monitoring data sources. The usage is calculated by taking a difference between amount of total and free videomemory reported by IDirectDraw4 interface.

    Tips:
    - Vidoememory usage may be reported improperly for OpenGL applications under Windows 2000/XP due to limitations of some OpenGL ICD drivers.
    - Videomemory usage may be reported improperly under Vista due to Vista DirectX implementation specifics.
