Video RAM profiling tools?

With all the excitement around the new .basis texture format, I wanted to run some tests to do some comparisons. I want to load a scene with tons of JPG/PNG textures, and compare to the same scene using .basis textures.

I’ve been unable to find a browser with a developer tool that can show me the current VRAM consumption. Does anybody have any suggestions for profiler tools that can do this? If no in-browser solution exists, can you guys suggest your favorite program I can install to track my GPU video memory usage?


Not sure if you’re still looking for a tool, but I found that chrome now has a builtin FPS meter, which also shows the GPU memory:



Oh that’s very useful! I mostly use Firefox for development, so I would’ve never caught this feature on my own. Thanks!
