Hi guys,

I´m using a AMD A8-4500 processor with a integrated
Radeon HD 7640G in my notebook. I just upgraded the RAM and now I am wondering if it is possible to allocate more memory to the video card. Its using 512mb of my memory right now, I would like i to use 1024mb.

Greetings and happy new year!

It has no memory of its own, windows will automatically allocate more memory if its needed. Run some extremely high demanding game on maximum settings with anti-aliasing as high as possible and see it consume more than 1gb of memory although you won't get more than a few fps at such settings.
