Weird amount of VRAM on Vega?


i recently upgraded from a Sapphire Nitro+ 580 8GB to a MSI Vega 56 Airboost OC and noticed that the AMD driver tells me that this card only has acess to 8176 MB VRAM . However GPU-Z tells me that its the normal 8192 MB of VRAM.

I only noticed this because of Apex Legends telling me that i dont have enough VRAM for the highest amount of texture streaming budget (8GB). This didnt occur on my 580.

Does anyone know if this is normal or not? Running 19.2.2 and ran ddu before switching cards.

Same happens to me. I have a Vega 56 reference.
