Video Memory Usage
Enabling DirectX Raytracing increases video memory consumption by around 1.0 to 1.5 GB over normal usage. Even so, it stays under 8 GB.
Please note: It looks like BF5 has a bug when it comes to RTX "medium". When switching to it, it will only use the previous setting, not "medium". So, if RTX "low" was selected before switching to "medium", then "low" will be the active setting. If switching from "high" to "medium", then "high" will be the active setting. For our testing above we switched from "high" to "medium", so "medium" results actually represent "high". At this time there is no way to actually test "medium".
