I suppose it should display 4095 or 4096 MB, but it reports 12002 MB. Different game engines and benchmarks/GPU-Z report correct size though.

Anyone else have this problem? Does it seem to indicate any problem with the card itself?


I'm using Win 8.1 x64, 14.2 beta 1.3 drivers.

Motherboard is ASRock Z87 Extreme6, 16 GB RAM installed. Not using integrated Intel graphics.

It's correct, as it takes into account the storage space on other sources for textures which are not in use but will be used again.
