    Dedicated video memory query

    brummyfan


      Hi,

      I have less dedicated video memory in HD4000 than HD3000, I would like to know why it has been reduced by 4 times in a newer chip.

      Acer Aspire 5750:

      memory: 8GB

      HD3000

      Total available Memory: 1760MB

      Dedicated Video Memory: 128MB

      Shared System Memory: 1632MB

       

      Acer Aspire E1-571:

      Memory: 4GB

      HD4000

      Total available Graphics Memory: 1792MB

      Dedicated Video memory:  32MB

      Shared System Memory: 1760MB

      I am aware that the dedicated memory can not be increased due to BIOS restrictions but I would like to hear an explanation as to why from someone more experienced, Thanks in advance.
