Intel SSU, how accurate?

I'm here to ask some questions and post a bug issue:

 

Question:

When this software runs through a system how accurate is it for assessing Nvidia cards?

I have an RTX 3000 (6GB) I thought... but when I run the INTEL SSU it says 4GB not 6GB.

 

Bug issue:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/18377/25293/intel-system-support-utility-for-windows.html

This SSU tool links to a broken URL (See images)

The tool reports whatever is in the driver's string buffers. It is not uncommon to see drivers that incorrectly report this information; the drivers are generic but the cards produced by the various vendors are not. Go into the driver properties and browse to the strings in the Details tab. This is where most of the information that the tool is reporting comes from.

Hope this helps,
