ATI NVIDIA GET VRAM is a tool to show free VRAM when worling with CI (Aperture !) or OPenGL Apps.

Supported: ATI 7000, 7200, 7500, 8500, 9000, 9200, 9600, 9700 , 9800, X1YYYY and all NVIVIA cards.

OpenGL is used in Quartz Extreme, CI, games and other apps like iTunes. It can show the values once or log the values in an logfile timercontrolled. The logging is very usefull to show VRAM usage over an longer time.

So you can see how much VRAM is used by Aperture (can be more than 160 MB) or games. VRAM never gets "OFF" - ist like your real RAM, your gpu uses normal RAM (over AGP/PCI-E) as virtual VRAM if VRAM is getting low. But that RAM-VRAM swapping will slow down your OpenGL /CI speed much.
