High VRAM usage

Technical Support

When using 64bit client, I've noticed that after some time my VRAM usage goes around 3,9GB with GTX970. Normally I would not care, but after some time in game I start to get this 1-2s stuttering from time to time which is quite annoying.
Howdy Tares,

Goto Options -> Video ->

Can you press try to limit your Max Foreground FPS to see if this helps with your stuttering. Check the box, then set the limit to whatever your monitor refresh relate is so 60hz -> 60FPS. Max Foreground FPS of 60. Apply and Accept.

If the issue continues try to turn off Reflections, and SSAO, and lower other settings a few at a time to see if we can get the stuttering down or stop completely. After that see if the issue occurs on the 32-bit client.

Thank you!

I'm using Dell s2716dg, so my resolution is 2560x1440 with 144Hz and of course GSYNC enabled. I play with borderless windows, because large cursor doesn't work on fullscreen and I have max foreground fps set to 144.

I'll try to change graphical settings and test if it helps, but I can already tell you, that 32bit client doesn't have this issue.

No matter what setting I use (always 2560x1440 and 144limit) low/high/SSAO on or off/Reflections/LowFX sooner or later my VRAM goes above 3,9GB and I experience stuttering from time to time.

i have a Gtx 1080TI and i've seen VRAM use go up to ~ 5.9 GB
4K (3840 x 2160) with all settings maxed, and max foreground fps set to 60
G-sync, 64 bit client
there is a memory leak in the 64bit d3 client, blizz dont seam very keen to fix it though :(
