This is my first time on a forum ever. So I was playing Minecraft with this new laptop right. Then I'm like, dang dude my fps is crazy low. And I went on Steam and saw a few games and was like, I outmatch all these specs... except for the video card ram? I went into my 4600 gpu properties and it said I had 64 dedicated video memory.

1696mb Total available graphics memory
64mb Dedicated video memory
0mb system video memory
1632mb Shared System Memory

I don't know what subcategory to put this in so I will put it in RAM.
Something like this would occur when trying to decide if I can run it or not.

Required You Have
Icon Pixel Shader version 5.0 5.0

Icon Dedicated Video RAM 1024 MB 64.0 MB

It looks to be a business laptop. Although discrete AMD Radeon graphics was available as an option, I'm guessing yours only has the integrated Intel graphics on the i7 processor. That means there is no dedicated VRAM. System memory is used for graphics. Check the BIOS - you might be able to increase the base allocation setting above 64MB. Other than that, the system memory is shared on an as-needed basis.
