Can someone please explain to me how this is true..

  • DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 2 GB.

...but yet when i run skyrim se on vanilla with no mods, skyrim performance monitor is showing me vram usage at almost 3k?

I have gtx 980ti, 4900k, 16gb ram, and 500gb ssd with great power supply.

Thank you.

Side note..if anyone knows the best way to monitor real time vram usage id appreciate it.

I do not know what units Skyrim Perf Monitor uses, so couldn't really comment - but being as it is a mod, it could well just be faulting and showing incorrect readings.

I would just use HWInfo and you can monitor GPU Memory usage under the GPU section.
