Hey All,

I just recently upgraded my GPU to an AMD GPU, they have a nice interface that shows my GPU, CPU, RAM, and VRAM utilization at any time. I have been noticing that my VRAM utilization is at 90% while doing absolutely nothing, just idling the computer. It is also only picking up about half of the RAM I have installed, if im reading this correctly.
Why would this be and how does this affect me? If I were to stream, would this affect the stream? I've never noticed that this could be a problem until now. How can I fix this?

VRAM utilization

I've ran a bench on my system and am passing with flying colors, I am wondering if my RAM may be having an issue:

Current setup is in the bench link above,

Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 C15 2x8GB
Intel Core i7-6700K
AMD RX 5700-XT
Samsung 860 Evo 1TB
Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2TB

Any advice is appreciated

I've now noticed that my stock trading applications are extremely laggy because of this Virtual RAM capping out of the gate, i logged in the next day and my VRAM is back down to 1300 MB. I am still wondering what caused it to be so high the other day.
