Does opening more browser tabs means more vram usage?

I don't know why but my pc is using half of its vram on the dedicated gpu memory and Im not mining or gaming anything tho i only open a bunch of browser tabs.

Is this usually normal?

Heres a screen shot of my desktop.

FYI:  Running your computer uses VRAM.  Because you're displaying stuff on the screen when it's just on.

Fairly normal. Modern browsers (and the OS) use hardware acceleration to render things. The browser likely caches some visual elements, so opening more tabs might increase usage.

Lots of other programs, like Steam and Discord, will use also a significant amount of VRAM. You have to consider your VRAM usage just as much as your system RAM usage with background programs.
