That seems odd that program is only seeing 3GB of vram on your gpu. id verify with another program that its reading correctly. Iv never heard of a GPU having that much dead vram and getting passed QC (especially an evga card) let alone still working enough to play games. Id verify vram with another program just to eliminate that as an issue.

With that said Id install something like MSI afterburner or evga precision and setup the on screen display to show you CPU, RAM and GPU,Vram usage, CPU & GPU clock speeds and GPU & CPU temps. This will help you figure out of something is running to hot or not being used 100%.

No. that is your CPU info. Click the "Graphics" tab. it will be listed there.

Yes it says memory size 11264 MBytes

Cool. that is correct. I didn’t really think it was bad gpu vram. Way to many over sights and miraculous coincidences would have had to happen before you got the card. Not imposable but highly unlikely, just slightly to the left of imposable lol. Its probably just a bug in the software you original used in your first screenshot. if cpu-z only showed 3GB of vram I would have thought it was a bad driver install (it would not hurt to download the latest drivers off nvidia's site for your GPU and install those if you have not done so already)

 

I will repost this just in case you missed my edit of my first post. next steps would to be.

Id install something like MSI afterburner or evga precision and setup the on screen display to show you CPU, RAM and GPU,Vram usage, CPU & GPU clock speeds and GPU & CPU temps. This will help you figure out of something is running to hot or not being used 100%.  as well as something like hardware monitor to have it log the min and max clocks of everything.

 

Also what in game setting are you using and @ what resolution(I’m assuming you are playing @ 4k on that 4k monitor)?

I would also test lowering the settings down to see if you still have issues at lower settings. Say try running at 1080p just to make sure its not an issue running the game at 4k.
