  1. enter the bios, set vram size for the integrated graphics to 2048MB or 2GB, this is the maximum for integrated Vega graphics on AMD CPU’s like the Ryzen 5 2500u.

    Tho some manufacturers lock this ability for normal users, for “safety reasons”, basically they don’t want unknowing customers to alter their products setup, because it can damage the machine.
    like explained here:

    But Vram capacity for vega might be unlocked 🙂

    here is an example video:

    btw there shouldn’t be much of a difference, because if the vega grahpics(iGPU) runs out of Vram (integrated GPU vram is actually system RAM), it will tap into the system RAM anyways.

    the only benefit you could see, would be games or other apps, checking your hardware setup to see if there is enough dedicated Vram available. So the app will not check for the not yet allocated system RAM, which the onboard Vega GPU can also use as Vram.

    Hope this makes sense, if it doesn’t feel free to ask away.

    notes:

    GPU=Graphics processing Unit
    on-board graphics=same as GPU
    iGPU=integrated GPU ^ (means the same for you as the 2 above)
    VRAM=Memory dedicated to the GPU
    RAM=system memory
    YOUR GPU=AMD RX Vega 8 (Ryzen iGPU)
    YOUR CPU=AMD Ryzen 5 2500U
    default iGPU(vega 8 grpahics) vram=128MB or 256MB
    max iGPU vram=2048MB or 2GB for short
