We used the latest public Steam release version of Watch_Dogs 2 (not a press pre-release). We also installed the high-res texture pack, which is a separate free DLC download.
Graphics Memory Usage
Using a GTX Titan X, which has 12 GB of VRAM, we tested the game's memory usage. As you can see, even with the HD texture pack enabled, the game doesn't use a lot of video memory by today's standards (where all new cards above $200 have 8 GB VRAM). When the high-res texture pack is installed, you get an additional "Ultra" option in the game's texture settings. Enabling this option uses roughly 2 GB of additional VRAM.
