To start, I benchedmarked totally vanilla Skyrim, launched from the standard launcher. I did this to get the hang of the process before I dive further into this. I got an odd result. I'm using an AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series, claiming 2048 MB dedicated video memory. But when benchmarking, GPU-Z reported my dedicated memory usage at ZERO, through the entire test. I don't know a whole lot about this sort of thing, but I'm pretty sure that isn't what's supposed to happen. (Dynamic averaged 594 +/- 51.) EDIT: After a bit of research, what I've found is that for some reason, GPU-Z always reports zero dynamic usage under Windows 8. Can anyone here confirm this? Are my benchmarks even remotely useful? At any rate, here are the results, full vanilla test run: GPU Core Clock [MHz]: 800 +/- 0
GPU Temperature [C]: 49 +/- 4
GPU Load [%]: 98.25 +/- 0.91 Memory Useage (Dedicated) [MB]: 0
Memory Useage (Dynamic) [MB]: 594 +/- 51 FPS: 37.2 +/- 4.8
