Post Re: 8800GTX + Direct3D8 + Visual C++ + XP = Random Performance Increase

I found something interesting.

After several tests, the non-local video memory usage, starts to grow, till 250MB.

I also see in task manager that my system is using 500MB of ram, while it uses usually 200-250MB.

There isn't any process using those extra 250MB, so, it must be memory used by the kernel or a driver.



When this happens, my framerate grows a 10% in all the games.

Why ? I dunno yet.
