Question, How did the VRAM usage go to 9.2GB on the 1080 when there's only 8GB of VRAM ?

Daym son! Just got me a 1070, looks like I'm going to need a Titan X.. jokes 1080p is more than adequate and I'm liking the 1070 results. Top job Mark.

EDIT: P.S the sliders thing is epic!

This is why I don't play games in the first year of their release—or in this case the second. I'd rather wait when hardware has caught up. With a Fury at 1440p, I'd be looking at a mixture of medium and high settings. I didn't expect to have to do that quite so soon—and that's still only 60 FPS. I do wish this was better optimised for AMD hardware.

edit: Though, actually, now that I've looked very closely at the 4k screenshots, there really doesn't appear to be that big of a difference between Medium and Ultra. There is definitely a texture sharpness to the Ultra settings that Medium and High do not have, but there isn't a great deal I can see otherwise.

For the final one, I just used the VRAM usage monitor in the settings menu. I checked the VRAM usage in-game and it used the full 8GB on the 1080.

The VRAM usage scale in the settings is very accurate.

I'm hoping for some performance improvements in this title in the near future. I'd like to play it at ultra at 1440p w/ a single 1080 and have 60+ FPS. It's disappointing that that's currently not possible 24/7.

Because it uses the paging file on your hard drive. Nvidia have a name for it but I just had a brain fart so you will have to do without the name.

It's not good and causes serious input lag. Texture streaming is what they call it.

Texture Streaming is at game engine level, this was a huge issue when RAGE came out and disabling it for some gave a smoother game. Nvidia did fix this in a quick driver update, so as for WD2 I'd hang on a while longer and see if they do the same.

They will nerf the graphics.

Talking of nerfing graphics I tried out Deus Ex today. Runs like turd, doesn't look all that good. Well, some of it is great (like the characters etc) but even at ultra it looked so so. Terrible performance too.
