The random slowdowns with Dirt Rally are only caused by the pressure
on visible VRAM. This whole thread is about those random slowdowns. If
you're saying "maybe it was just one of the random slowdowns", you're
saying "maybe it was just the visible VRAM pressure". It's only
random with Dirt Rally, which makes it difficult to believe statements
such as "I can't reproduce any slowdown". It's not random with Dying
