    Question Could heat up my GPU fix faulty vram?

    Hey, so i just bought the msi gtx 650 ti and it has some vram issue, whenever I open a game, it would always crash, so I open up msi afterburner and lower the core clock and memery clock down and it didn't crash any more, so I guess it was the vram problem. So I was thinking if I could heat up...

    Question Can GPU Usage still be at 100% even if most of the VRAM isn't being used?

    Dumb question I know....Is GPU usage still going to be at 100% if the VRAM isn't being fully utilized. Let's say I'm playing a game that is quite demanding but there is still a huge headroom for the VRAM usage even if I set the graphic settings at the very max, is the graphics card still going...

    Question How much vRAM do you need for 8K? (Only asking about VRAM, not if a GPU is fast enough)

    First off, I'm not really running an 8K display. Instead, I have something probably just as rare, three 55" 4K TVs. I want to upgrade my GPU to the NVidia 30 Series and wondering if the 12GB of the 3080ti would be enough, or if I should stick with looking for a 3090. I'm also wondering how much...

    Question Difference between 4G and 8G Radeon RX 580 when overclocking VRAM

    Hi. As far as I know the default VRAM clock of RX 580 is 2000 MHz for 8GB cards and 1750 MHz for 4GB cards. How does this difference affect overclocking the VRAM? Is the 8GB type more stable at a clock of, say, 2100 MHz? Can such a high clock be harmful for the 4GB type? Thanks.
