There is additional space in RAM and the Windows page file which stores graphical assets not currently in use for quick access later.
is it normal for a game to reach 7-8 GB of vram? Currently Playing Mirror'sEdge Catalyst which keep increasing GPU VRAM usage. It started with 1.5 GB but after one hour of play reach up to 8 GB. Also At this point game starts freezing for 5-8 seconds during loading of a checkpoint or mission start. My workaround for this situation is to quit the game and restart again after it has consumed 8GB VRAM so that it works smoothly for next 1 hour.
