The Intel® 82845G graphics controller uses Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT), which employs direct AGP and intelligent arbitration to dynamically allocate and de-allocate system memory for applications requiring additional video memory. The amount of video memory can vary between different hardware configurations and when in different applications, up to a maximum of 64 MB.
The Intel 82845G graphics controller supports the selection of three different sizes of pre-allocated memory for legacy VGA compatibility: 512KB, 1MB or 8MB. For some systems, this amount is selected in the system BIOS as a setup option. Some systems do not have any BIOS options for adjusting the amount of legacy VGA memory allocated at bootup.
In Windows*, DVMT will adjust the amount of video memory as needed. This type of video memory allocation cannot be adjusted by the user.
