Can I increase the Dedicated Video Memory for Intel Graphics?


Windows 7 family*, Windows 8.1 family*, Windows 8 family*, Windows® 10 family


Provides information about adjusting the graphics dedicated memory.


Use the information below to change the maximum Video RAM(VRAM) available for Intel Graphics.


There is no way to preset your VRAM to a specific value, you can only limit the maximum memory that it can take. The Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) does not have a dedicated memory; it uses shared memory that will be allocated automatically depending on various factors. The option to adjust the maximum memory is usually available in the BIOS but the setting may not be available for all systems.

The setting is typically listed under VRAM or Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). The settings values can typically be adjusted to 128 MB, 256 MB and maximum DVMT. Setting other values depends on the motherboard manufacturer and the amount of RAM installed on the computer.

We recommend checking with the motherboard manufacturer for more information about the BIOS and the availability of the settings provided in the BIOS.

Additionally, check this article under the following section: What is the maximum amount of graphics memory or video memory my computer can use in Windows 10?

Additional information

The current VRAM can be confirmed by checking the information about Dedicated Memory under the Display Devices section in the DxDiag* report.
