I FINALLY found how to solve the texture streaming issues with the 3080. This may apply to cards with lower VRAM too like 8GB.
RTX 3080 10GB and Lower – 60 FPS Guide (without Any Texture Streaming Issues) and Best Settings
The game seems to load higher resolution asset the higher in screen resolution you are, so VRAM can become overloaded and textures gets stuck to lowest settings often even when right next to player.
VRAM is shared between model, foliage, textures, etc so any change can help.
Any screen resolution above 1080p seems to ask for a minimum of 12gb. DLSS or FSR does not drop VRAM usage enough to help with this issue.
What Screen Resolution Should I Use?
Here’s a screen resolution chart for anyone wondering what’s the best screen resolution they should use depending on the available Dedicated VRAM:
- 10 GB or less – 1080p
- 12 GB – 1440p
- 16 GB – 1440p or 4K (at 4k some people says they still have some random texture quality drop even with 16GB but i cannot confirm)
- More than 16 GB – 4K
What Settings Should I Use?
So, here’s the best settings to use with the RTX 3080 for 60 fps and best image quality:
Resolution: 1920x1080 Maximum Frame Rate: 120 VSync: Off (On if you do not have a VRR monitor/TV) Screen Mode: Fullscreen Variable Rate Shading: Off (Having it on causes shimmering sometimes) Dynamic Resolution: Off Model Memory: Standard Texture Memory: Standard AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2: Off Nvidia DLSS: Quality (this is to keep a more stable 60 fps) ***Note that you can switch the DLSS version for 2.5.1 and the quality is a lot better, that's what i used here*** Sharpness: 0.00 Model Detail Level: High Texture Filtering: High Reflections: High Motion Blur: On or Off it's your preference Depth of Field: On or Off it's your preference Fog Quality: Standard Cloud Quality: High Shadow Quality: High Ray Traced Shadows: Off (Raytracing options use a lot of VRAM) Ambient Occlusion (AO): High Ray Traced Ambient Occlusion: Off (Raytracing options use a lot of VRAM) Anti-Aliasing: Temporal AA
For a more consistent 60 fps you can also go in the Nvidia control panel and lock the maximum framerate at 60.
In the city I have about 73 to 101 fps FYI.
Remember; DO NOT use a resolution more than 1080p on a 10gb or less card or you will for sure have the texture issues regardless of the settings.
