Increase dedicated memory graphic Skylake HD

Hey :). I come from a Lenovo machine (which I returned due to building defects).

In the Lenovo BIOS, could increase dedicated graphics memory. XPS 13 remains to 128, with more available as "shared." Does this affect performance? How can you increase the memory dedicated XPS 13? For Lenovo, it was possible, and it was also Skylake.


There is no way - the 128 M is the Z-buffer - not the dedicated video memory (in fact NO video memory dedicated - is all the system RAM).  The driver will allocate as much RAM system needed up to the maximum allowed by the total RAM in the system - there is no way to send it manually.

    You can not directly increase graphics memory.
    Its not like RAM, where you can add more memory with a different RAM slot.

    You may need to install the new graphics card if supported.

  • Pavilion 500-321: Option to increase dedicated RAM graphic chip (Intel 4600)

    Is there a way to increase the RAM dedicated to the graphics chip (Intel 4600)? I would benefit from it? I tried to look in the BIOS, but it is not an option for that.

    My PC has 12 GB of RAM - 10 (64-bit) Windows

    Thank you.

    @Adrianrff, welcome to the forum.

    No, there is no way to increase the amount of video memory.  The only way to do it is by adding a discrete video card.  In addition, it would require a power supply unit (PSU) upgrade.  The existing PSU is only 300W.

    To be honest, your post is a little confusing.
    The laptop seems to support the Intel HM55 HD graphics chip and a part of the main memory would be shared by the graphics chip too.

  • [HP Envy 17 t] Sort to increase dedicated memory ram (virtual memory)

    Many of the most demanding games require a certain amount of RAM is pretty much dedicated to your graphics card and after hours of trying to figure out how I came empty. On most desktop computers and some portable computers, you can go into the BIOS and change it, but not on the HP Envy 17 t (tried the BIOS update). I really don't know not how much difference it would make to the gameplay, but considering how I have an extra 11 GB of RAM when I use rarely more than 4 GB it would be nice to be able to put some of it to use. There are also a few games that I want to play that requires a minimum amount able to be launched in all the (COD: AW). The customer support has tried without success. After an hour in vain and didn't want the trouble to sit on the phone with them. Googling also didn't help much. If has any who still understood?

    OS: Windows 8.1

    Current dedicated video Ram: 0 MB


    Not really, for example at the beginning with a game, it takes only .5Gb and system has 1.5 GB free, System onlu allocate .5Gb for VRAM, it is a dynamic allocation is not fixed.

    Kind regards.

  • Dedicated memory graphics card

    I encountered this problem several times.  When I bought my laptop I also updated with her graphics.  For most of the games the computer, just barely sometimes works, but it works.

    However, for about 3 games I bought the graphics card is not allocated enough memory.  I tried to go into the BIOS and change the amount of memory, it is allowed, but I not even give me the option to change it.

    Memory of the graph of the map is the only thing that prevents me from playing all my games smoothly and it is really boring, exspecially because I bought the graphics card updated, so I wouldn't this problem.

    I have a HP pavilion dm4 with a processor intel core i5 and and a family Intel HD graphics card.  I contacted intel and they say it's a problem that HP can fix with the motherboard.

    Any suggestions?  I really do not have to buy a new computer because an it is missing on my computer.

    Hi Aditya,

    Thanks for joining us out on Microsoft Community Forums.

    As you are interested to learn more about the increase in the memory of the dedicated graphics card, I advise you to buy an external graphics card. You can do this by contacting the manufacturer of the computer or the store local tech.

    I would also say to update you Direct X 10 for direct X 11 and check if it helps.

    I hope it helps. If you have any questions about Windows in the future, please let us know. We will be happy to help you.

  • Increase video memory dedicated for my computer...

    Hi, my computer is a Windows Vista Ultimate, Intel Core to Duo T7700 2.4 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, 2 GB of RAM, blah blah blah, video Total rest is not necessary.

    Anyway, I wanted to know how to increase my DEDICATED VIDEO RAM, not the total. Currently, my dedicated video memory is sitting up to 256 MB, which means approximately 1.74 GB of video RAM is not used (supposedly).
    I tried everything to my Start menu to enter the "BIOS", which everyone says is the way to change the dedicated video memory. Unfortunately, the BIOS does not turn upward anywhere and I can't find another way to change the dedicated video memory.
    What is the easiest or more simplified to change my dedicated video memory? Or I do something wrong?
    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
    P.S. I use my computer to play various games (that you might have supposed), but I have played games that require more dedicated video RAM to display for my computer, for example 512 MB, while I have 256 MB, as mentioned previously. The games work well and generally smooth. Is it just because of the CPU or is my video memory dedicated, is actually just a mask for the amount of RAM? Or maybe something else?

  • Satellite L300D-10B: how to increase shared memory?

    Hi, I have a noob question q :)

    I use XP Professional.
    My L300D-10B, using the Videocard ATI Radeon X 1200 Seris with 800 MB shared memory, but the work on 128.
    I have a question; How can I up to 256? There were just 800?
    I have 2 GB of RAM and I think that can up to 256, but how?

    I chek the bios, but not found anything with this stuff...
    I am from Bulgaria if Bulgarian too may have to help me or if not some tell me...

    A man told me things for some Toshiba KEY... to unlock an option in my bios I send emails but...
    And if do made 256 will have a good effect specialty for the games or not?

    It's all thanks. :]


    If you now 800 MB shared memory, you have quite 928 MB memory graphics.

    A dedicated video memory 256 MB upgrade is not possible because the graphics card is soldered on the motherboard and t can be exchanged. Who you mans can only increase the total available graphics memory, with more RAM.

  • Satelite C670-1DW: how to increase shared memory?

    How to increase shared memory for display from 64 MB to 512 MB?


    It is not possible.
    You cannot change the value manually the graphic card driver controls cela and it changes automatically.
    In addition, your laptop supports an internal graphics Intel HD (HM55) card and this chip is not really suitable for the game.
