    Just ignore him, he has no idea. Seems to think that on top of the original texture, exta operations eat up video memory too.
    That would be the day.
    Delete his posts or something, before the topicstarter actually believes him and buys a card based only on texture memory.

    I'm just going to close this at the next off-topic post.

    you just said it yourself though, it takes memmory to do that. meaning the fastest access to the texture to filter it it, IS ON THE BOARD, otherwise if has to use the system bus to access the main memory in order to fetch the texture.... A SLOW PROCESS, hence the need to increse AGP bus speeds, either way, using the system to get the information is a slower means that storing the texture in the Video Bards RAM, and those textures can be quite large....easlily chewing up 128 Meg of video memory if they wanted to.(3d mark does that as part of the benchmark, you think that 128M texture sits on your systems RAM?)

    your a moron
    And if you&#39;ve got a GPU that can execute all the fancy calculations as opposed to a lot of texture memory, you&#39;ll outperform it.

    If you fill your entire texture memory but the GPU takes 10 minutes to actually process all of it, you&#39;ll still have crappy FPS. [/b][/quote]
    I never said the memory would take the place of the GPU, all I said was it is just as important as games grow and evolve, try to run any game on 5 meg video memory as Waz seems to think is possible (need I quote that post) and see how far you get.

    and waz you are just pissed cause I am right, and dont bother suspending me, I shal do the same thing you have done, use a multiple screen names.... (this is the 3rd now that _I_ know of)

    Oh yeah and waz, this does apear to go right with the topic so shutup.

    Quit your pointless babble, OK?

    You&#39;ll use multiple screen names and each one will be banned.

    No, I said that the screen buffer would only take up a small amount of the graphic card&#39;s total memory, you moron. You&#39;re just being harmfully stupid again. You don&#39;t know shit about computers, you can&#39;t even grasp the basics.

    DAMN that guy is pathetic. Actually makes me depressed that somebody so damned stupid could exist. The sad thing is that he&#39;s a Linux zealot, so he clearly tries to learn about computers and still ends up being horribly tech-illiterate.

    The Real use for video memory

    May be a little old, but acurate

    All that does is explain the size of screen buffers and texture memory. We&#39;ve already covered that. Not entirely helpful.

  8. #38


    the point of that article of course being "The ammount of memory textures take up varies massivley, depending on how many textures are needed at once, and what resolution they are and what color depth they are"

    also note that they mentioned the greatest use of video memory are in the textures, bump maps, and light maps

    Yes, games use texture memory differently. We know. Naturally a game could conceivably use 128MB for one texture, but none do, so it&#39;s best to get a fast card with a modest amount of RAM.

    true, though if you have the money, you might as well get 256, the games will probably be using it soon enough anyway. Think about how quickly 64M became the standard, with 128 slowing replaecing it.
