    increasing dedicated video ram from shared video ram

    felix_H97

      First of all, i have no idea if i have posted in the correct place, please let me know if i haven't and where i should so i can move if necessary

       

      If you take  look at the attachment i have posted its shows that the dedicated video ram is only 32mb/1792mb. I dont know how this affects me when playing games, but when i run software to check if i can run a game it will always fail due to only have 32mb of video ram. Is there anyway to change this? i have read on some forums talking about BIOS and needing to change it in there but am confused about how to go about it.

       

      Any help would be much appreciated!

          Hello felix_H97,

           

          Note that the Intel® graphics controllers uses shared memory that is taken from the RAM memory installed on your computer.

           

          The feature that sets the amount of memory that is used for video is called Intel® Dynamic Video Memory Technology and this will make the graphics controller only to use the amount of RAM memory that it requires to run the different applications or software’s.

           

          I am afraid to say that there is no way to preset this to a specific value; however, you can limit the maximum memory that it can take only. You will see this option usually in BIOS and you will have 3 options, 128MB, 256MB and maximum DVMT. Other values can be found as 512MB, etc but this depends on the motherboard manufacturer and the amount of RAM memory installed on your computer.

           

          Here you have more information about this:
