Texture Thrashing 192MB

Question

Hi,

I recently brought a ASUS TUF Gaming laptop tech specs at bottom;

The textures thrash, they load then unload straight away so constantly blurring. All my graphics are set low in game, the Viewer Texture Memory buffer MB slider will only go upto 192MB even though i'm running SL on the dedicated gamer graphics card.

The AMD RADEON Vega 8 dedicated graphics memory size is 128 MB, the AMD Radeon RX 560X is 4096 MB. 

 

this is what shows in the about firestorm bit...

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3550H with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx   (2096.07 MHz)

Memory: 8002 MB

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit (Build 17763.379)
Graphics Card Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc.
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon(TM) Vega 8 Graphics

 

I guess my question is why will the MB slider only go up to 192? surely if its higher this texture thrashing will stop?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated, I'm not very tech savvy but have someone to help explain things and do it for me who is.

 

Thanks

guessing you run SL on the onboard graphics and not the 4096 card.
Right click your firestorm icon on the screen and select the card you want to run it with.

In the viewer click HELP->About... that is the viewer spec you want to post here when asking questions.

Look at the info in HELP to see if the viewer is using your Radeon. Ethen probably has it right. Computers will default to power saving rather than performance.

I suggest you go into the Radeon settings panel (the Windows app not the viewer) and set up a game profile for SL. I'm an NVIDIA kid but your settings will be similar for Radeon. http://blog.nalates.net/2016/06/05/nvidia-settings-2016/

Uh...Amber already posted her Help/About info, and it shows the Radeon card is in use.

EDIT: OOPS!  I should have read even closer.  See LittleMe's post below.

As Ethan said, your viewer is using the dedicated graphics 'AMD Radeon Vega 8" rather than the "AMD Radeon RS 560X" -- see hilighted:

You should be able to assign the viewer to use the other card, though I've no clue how to do that with AMD.  Nvidia has a control panel that lets you do it.
