Often upon loading a map on TF2 the game crashes stating it is out of graphics memory, spitting out an error to dmesg as attached.

The error message is a known issue, but harmless.

That TF2 is crashing is simply because it runs out of system memory.

Try to install more memory and/or add a swap partition.

Surely it cant be memory, the gpu has 8gb of vram and I have installed 16gb of ddr3 ram.
Comment 6 Christian König 2018-01-02 16:18:46 UTC
Well the error message is pretty clear.

Maybe TF2 has a memory leak or something like that?

This is a 32bit app, it's just running out of virtual memory, not physical.
It is apparently also happening with intel graphics drivers (for instance discussed here: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Source-1-Games/issues/2212), and macs may be affected too.
So this looks more like a game issue to me, albeit it might be possible the driver also "wastes" virtual memory (vram/gtt mappings?). (I have no idea if this is something which could be reasonably expected to be improved.)
