No, it's not. For illustrative purposes, let's say you have a dream GPU 
with 128 GB memory and you need to crack a single hash that need about 1 
billionth of that. How/why would we "utilize" the rest of your memory, 
and in what way do you picture it would be a good thing!?

Your GPU utilization though, should ideally be pegged very close to 100% 
and that's the only important parameter here.
