I still have windows XP (32bit)
, and even though I have a 2GB 6950 windows is still able to manage 3.5G (it only "wastes" 0.5G for I/O space). Makes me wonder: is it making use of the video card's 2G ???
no, in a 32 bit OS its not possible to use that.
32 bit apps in a 32 bit OS only get 2GB address space total, so there is no way you can use all 2GB of video ram (unless your app uses 0MB of ram)
