    i just wanted to mention that the new gpu-z-version can measure the used vram under a windows vista/7 working environment. at least it is possible for some nvidia models. maybe unwinder could get in touch with the gpu-z guys to get that feature working again in one of the next releases of rivatuner.

    Yes, nvidia finally added API for monitoring VRAM usage and GPU usage. And yes, it will be added in future releases. But I'd like to clearly menion that nothing changed and there are still NO ways for user mode applications to know how much VRAM is in use via unified approaches. So it will start working on NVIDIA side "again" only because NVIDIA decided to contribute in this area and provided an API for accessing internal NV driver's videomemory manager statistics. So it will be available only on NVIDIA cards and only with 19x.xx series drivers, where this new API is available. ATI users may forget about getting it working "again", until ATI decide to do the same and provide access to their videomemory manager.
