Gpu only using half of dedicated memory

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


I started playing a great game called satisfactory but after some time i noticed my gpu was running at 99% all the time so after some digging around i noticed it only used about half the dedicated gpu memory.
I googled around and i have not found a single person explaning the same problem, can anyone here help me?

Because memory and gpu usage have nothing to do with each other. 


Should do some research.
