The gpu high mem, probably caused by some 3rd party app/minimized web pages/hw acc. running.
Disable all "Startup"(non windows) programs in Task Manager.
There are also newer bios/driver updates for your mobo.
Using any oc apps ?
Make/model of gpu ?
I have no non-essential startup apps (and my gpu misbehaves even on a fresh install)
I was a little behind on my bios version. I just updated it and there is no change.
I am not using any overclocking apps. The only one I have is crimson, which I have not tampered with.
The GPU is an MSI r9 390 Gaming.
Do you think there is something wrong with my gpu's ram? Someone said the memory usage looks fishy but couldn't tell me much more.
Thanks for responding!
Some app/program is triggering mem usage.(afterburner/iTunes/groove music/live tiles ?).
Try going offline, see what happens to mem readings.
My 390 runs fine.
I've tried offline, nothing changes.
As for other apps/programs. I don't have anything special installed on this computer and I turn pretty much everything off anyways.
Regardless, i've fresh installed windows 10 and then installed only the drivers and steam and I still encountered the same problems.
But there IS something wrong with my gpu's memory spiking like that? Bandai's tech support (for DS3) said something similar:
In the case the memory spike occurs during gameplay, it's possible this may be related to your frame rate loss as it looks like your game is maxing out on memory at these points. As for increasing your graphic card memory, the configuration for this can vary depending on the card and this would be something I'd recommend asking the manufacturer's of the card directly as they should be able to provide you a step by step process for your specific card (if applicable to your card).
Well, looks like you've pretty much ruled out software error.
Contact MSI support, may be bugged vbios/may be rma ?
Don't have ds3, can't comment (maxing 8gb mem ?).
Another thing is if your new to win10, many settings need changing.

When I first installed my GPU I got a weird message saying:
"Radeon Settings has detected that one or more high-DPI panels are connected to your system. Enabling virtual super resolution will increase your resolution and allow you to customize DPI settings."
This is a standard message informing you that your graphics card will support VSR if you choose. The option is in the Display section.
