    I have searched endlessly, and am coming up short. Just can't figure out why Black Ops 2 is only using 380mb of dedicated memory at it's peak. The Elder Scrolls Skyrim uses 1071mb consistently. I did have a slight OC on on the memory clock from 667 to 800, I reverted to default and it made no difference. Other than it ran better without the OC, I was surprised, cause that's the only game that stands true for. Hope I'm in the right forum to place this post, I apologize if not, I'm a noob here. Also, thanks for any advice.

    I think that is normal usage for Black Ops 2. The game determines how much memory is used, more complex games with higher resolution textures will use more memory. Skyrim is way more detailed than Black Ops 2.

    Thanks for input. Didn't know that. But then why could I play skyrim at higher settings smoother and not black ops 2. That's what this is all about, black ops 2 just runs like crap even at 800x600 resolution. Any ideas why?

    That I don't know. If you could go here and fill out your system specs and make sure to set it to show your system specs that might help determine why Black Ops is running poorly.

    I believe newtekie is right, COD is not as complex as skyrim and that usage seems normal.

    Call of duty isn't exactly the most optimized game around :shadedshu
