What hardware monitoring graph are you displaying under MEM? Because if you use the standard "Memory usage" in MSI Afterburner it only shows allocated VRAM.

If you want to know what the program is actually using you have to look at (or display) "GPU dedicated memory usage / process". Which sadly doesn't work with every program but if it does it gives a much better picture of what is actually used. Which can make a huge difference. The biggest I have seen so far was Cities Skylines at 4K which allocates ~10GB VRAM but actually uses only ~2GB.

It depends also on the resolution. At 5876x1080 (triple screen with bezel correction) i fill 8GBs of VRAM pretty much 98% of the time in ACC or any other sim-racing game. And Cities: skylines is the perfect example - i've seen it utilize more than 26GB of RAM, using all of the VRAM of a GTX 1080 Ti and bring a 5900X to its knees at 1080p with a city with population of 550 000 people. It's a really weird game - doesn't require a lot to start playing, but depending once you get to a certain point, there isn't a powerful enough hardware to run it properly.

Allocated or dedicated? Cuz at 4K I can probably count the games I played that actually use more than 8GB VRAM on one hand.

It doesn't it just allocates a lot. Like I said it allocates 10 GB but actually uses only 2 GB at 4K (with a city at 100.000 pop).

Because it is a single threaded game. It doesn't use all available cores.
