too much video memory unused??

Hi all,

 

I am using solidworks 2011, with an Nvidia FX 6000 (6Gb memory) and a core i7 processor.

When rendering a simple transparent plastic part, I see it takes quite a while to render. That might be normal, but what caught my attention is that my graphic card meter, tells me, that only 500mb out of the 6Gb are being used for the rendering!!!!

Is there a way to force the software to use all available memory? Otherwise, what good does it make to have a huge card like this one?

 

Hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks

 

Gerard
