Solved How do I increase my dedicated video memory without BIOS?

Clevo / W740su

Specs: Windows 7, 16GB
I have already tried editing my dedicated video memory through BIOS, and I didn't have the options to do it, so I'm trying to figure out how to do it without using the BIOS. I have an Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 and 16GB of ram, but my dedicated video ram is only 192mb.

I am using a Clevo W740SU.

✔ Best Answer
This question gets asked a lot. There are 2 types of graphics memory - dedicated & shared. Dedicated can NOT be changed, it is what it is. According to the following, the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 has 128MB of dedicated eDRAM.

I don't know where you're coming up with 192MB, unless it's 128MB eDRAM + 64MB shared?

Well, I'm not sure, here's what it displays.

Total Available Graphics Memory: 1824 MB
Dedicated Video Memory: 192 MB
System Video Memory: 0 MB
Shared System Memory: 1632MB

I often use http://www.systemrequirementslab.co... to see if I can run games before I purchase them, and it almost always says that I have all the requirements except for the amount of dedicated video memory.

Regardless of whether it's 128MB or 192MB, the amount of dedicated memory cannot be changed.
