GTX 1070...only 8GB RAM and 16GB Ram exist?

Stupid question but there is a reason my computer-noob ass is asking...

    Back story- I have a GTX 1070 Graphics card but when I go into system info I see (1,048,576) bytes as the adapter ram.  Does this sound right?  I thought the baseline GTX was 8GB but I'm no industry or shopping expert...

    A GeForce GTX 1070 always has 8 GB of GDDR5 memory.  If you have a card that does not have 8 GB of video memory, either it's defective or (more likely), it's not a GTX 1070.  WHere did you see that 1 MB as the "adapter ram"?

    Windows system information displays some strange numbers as "Adapter RAM". I'm not sure what that number is, but ignore the number.

    If you want to check out your GPU information, one way is to run dxdiag.exe:

    Start menu -> type dxdiag.exe into the search field -> the system should find dxdiag.exe -> run it -> on the program go to tab "Display 1" -> from there you'll see your GPU info

    Ah thank you for the info.  Will do.  Number ignored.
