Intel HD Graphics is an integrated video solution and as such it is not very fast, because it has no memory of its own, but takes some from system RAM.
Nevertheless, Intel HD Graphics has come a long way and recently it made the budget video cards practically obsolete letting its owners play even the newest games at low settings. Unfortunately, some games are coded to require a specific amount of dedicated video memory and if not present in the system they refuse to start, although they may be perfectly playable on Intel HD Graphics.
To see it, simply right click on your desktop, select Screen resolution and then click on Advanced settings. A window with your video card properties will open and you will see the memory your Intel HD Graphics is using in the "Adapters" tab take a look at the screenshots on the right.
Refer to the "Desktop Users" section below for more information and what to search in the BIOS. Unfortunately, most laptop manufacturers do not include such setting in their BIOSes, so do not worry if you do not find one for your laptop. You can contact your laptop manufacturer for more information, but most likely it will not be possible to increase Intel HD Graphics dedicated video memory. That is why you should consider other ways to make a given game run on your computer.
I recommend you try the following:. If you have a desktop, you are lucky - almost all desktop computers have a setting in the BIOS which lets you specify the exact amount of "dedicated" memory Intel HD Graphics should allocate from system RAM. The screenshot below shows how this setting looks like on an Asrock motherboard. Refer to the table below for the recommended amount of video memory based on the amount of RAM you have:. This will make almost all games, if not smoothly playable, at least able to run on your computer.
Apple computers with Intel HD Graphics usually allocate a specific amount of graphics memory based on the amount of RAM in the system. For example, if you have a MacBook with Intel HD Graphics , your video memory will be as follows:. Hey man, I have a Dell Inspiron running windows 8, and when i enter the BIOS screen there is no such option.
It is a desktop so i know thats not the issue I suggest you contact DELL for more information on this topic. Another possible solution for desktops is to simply insert a dedicated video card. My mother board is Intel DH61WW. Now my dedicated VRAM is only 32MB. But previously, when I was using Windows 7, my dedicated VRAM was 64MB. So, Is there any other way I can increase my VRAM? Since you are on a desktop you also have the option to simply insert a dedicated video card if you have a PCI Express x16 slot of course.
Pavel Vladov Hi I have a similar issue but instead of not having an option to change the amount of memory, it is only grayed out. Is there any way to enable that option? Hi, if the option to increase Intel HD Graphics memory is "grayed out" this means that it is disabled.
You can download a BIOS update from the website of you laptop manufacturer or if you are on a desktop computer - from the website of the motherboard manufacturer. When you download it, follow the instructions from the website to install it. Some vendors even offer an application that automatically downloads and installs the latest version of the BIOS for you.
Hi, set it to MB or MB. Later, if you want to get even more performance out of your Intel HD Graphics consider upgrading to 8GB RAM 2x4GB. If you are on a desktop consider getting a discrete graphics card. Check out whether your computer has a PCI Express x16 slot. If it does, then you will be able to insert a dedicated video card in it, but most probably a low profile one, because the case of this particular desktop is tiny.
Unfortunately, laptops rarely have a setting in BIOS for increasing it it is best to trick the problematic game that the computer actually has the necessary amount of dedicated graphics memory. Depending on the game this can be done in different ways: Hello, I am using a HP ENVY 23 All-in-One running Windows 8. Do you know how to get to it? Hi, All-in-One computers are more laptops than desktops they use laptop parts , so the setting to increase Intel HD Graphics "dedicated" memory is rarely available in them, too.
I recommend you follow the tips in the "Laptop Users" section of this article to make the games you are interested in work on your computer. You can also check out the 4 Ways to Improve Intel HD Graphics Performance. Hi,I have an Asus Vivobook XE with Intel HD and i would like to know "How do i improve the performance in The Lego Movie Videogame?
The game recommends having 1GB and my graphics card only has 32MB of "dedicated" V-RAM. Please help and thanks in advance!
Hi, "The Lego Movie Videogame" is a new game released and new games usually are not hard coded to require a certain amount of dedicated video memory as some old games are. That is why it should run fine on your Intel HD as it is clearly above the minimum video card requirements of this game.
Simply set the graphics quality to low or medium and the resolution to x or less and you should enjoy smooth gameplay according to a lot of YouTube videos. Hi Andrew, the memory allocated to Intel HD Graphics is not directly related to performance.
Intel HD Graphics can use up to 1. Check out the following article for more information and recommended game settings for Intel HD Graphics: Skyrim on Intel HD Graphics. Hi, I have an Asus X55A-SXH , I had 4GB RAM in it and i allocatedmy graphics card to mb , today I upgraded it to 8GB and I wanted to allocate mb to graphics, but in BIOS it shows me from 32mbmb, what should I do? If you want to squeeze more performance out of it, take a look at the following article: Hello, i have intel i3, intel graphics, 6gbRAM, when i enter bios, there is no such a thing to change dedicated video memory..
Is it hidden or what? I bought this computer about half year ago, and i found it bad on games. Waiting your answer as soon as possible, Thanks for reply Regards Arturas. I have an Intel HD integrated Graphics with a Intel i5 3.
With the shared memory at or mb, how well will it run skyrim at medium settings. Please respond back soon. Hi, I have played Skyrim with a mix of low and medium settings at x on a laptop with Intel Core i3 m and Intel HD Graphics Intel HD is considerably slower that Intel HD , so I expect you will be able to run the game fluently only on the lowest settings.
Check out this article for more information: Since you are on a desktop I recommend you check out if you have a PCI Express x16 slot and get a dedicated video card if yes. So if I upgrade from 4gb RAM to 8gb will performance while gaming be increased?
Решение падения FPS, артефактов графики и шрифта.
Yes, but only if you currently have 1 stick of 4GB RAM and upgrade to 2 identical sticks each of 4GB. This will make your memory work in dual channel mode and make it faster. Here are more ways to improve Intel HD Graphics performance.
Would it be a noticable improvement? My laptop is 3 years old. Hey I have 12GB of RAM and 2GB of video RAM I was wondering if u think I could bump up the video RAM to 4GB. Anyway, I do not recommend allocating more than 2GB of memory to Intel HD Graphics as this is pointless - it will not increase its performance, you will only lose system RAM. If you are interested in increasing Intel HD Graphics performance, check out this article.
Hi, 1GB VRAM is more than enough as it meets the minimum required VRAM amount of almost all current games. I have a Intel Core i5 , 8gb RAM 2x4 on a mobo Asus B85M-G R2. You think there is no option on that motherboard or i need to use some extra software from Asus? What can i do now.
My BIOS ver is A05 from Dell and there is no changing option for vram in Bios mode: Hi, as I have said in the article, unfortunately a BIOS setting for increasing the allocated memory to Intel HD Graphics is rarely available in laptops, so most laptop users cannot change it.
Anyways, I recommend you contact your laptop manufacturer Dell for more information. Hi Pavel, I just wanted to thank you for all this great information. I am so NOT a gamer, but my 9 year old is, and your tips helped me find a way to run "Plants Vs.
Zombies Garden Warfare" on our new, but lower end laptop, that lacked the graphics interface needed. Would you mind helping me out here?
In the advanced setting of the sceen resolution i see the following information: Total Available Graphics Memory: Intel i7 U CPU Comparing to yours it looks really low. Another thing is that performance wise, the game running on my laptop is similar to one of my friends laptop having i5 4th gen and 4 gb RAM.
Hi, unfortunately on laptops the setting to increase the memory allocated to Intel HD Graphics is rarely available. Do not worry about this however, because increasing this memory does not improve performance. For more information check out my article about how to improve Intel HD Graphics performance.
Regarding your question about the i5 vs i7 processor, the i7 processor has greater computational power than the i5, but for gaming they are pretty much the same, because they have the same integrated graphics in this case Intel HD , which is the limiting factor in most games.
Hello Pavel My computer specs are as follows: Intel r Core TM i CPU 3. Windows 10 Intel HD Type: Intel HD Graphics Motherboard: Asrock I am able to access the UEFI menu, but whenever I do, I am unable to change anything due to a password lock. This is strange, as I purchased this computer brand new. Is there any way I can bypass this so I can change the BIOS settings? Thank you in advance, Jesse Graham. Hi, Intel HD Graphics is getting much better with every new generation and it can now run almost any game at least on low settings.
This was impossible just a few years ago, but as of March , Intel HD Graphics is still way behind mid-range dedicated graphics cards like GeForce m. Thanks, It helped me. I have a all in one pc with 4gb ram and 64mb vram with w Firstly I couldnt enter BIOS with F2,F10 as it was intergrated like a laptop. So I got into BIOS in another which I figured out:: You will be directed to BIOS. Change the DVRAM value in the BIOS and reboot.Форум
You can find that the DVRAM has increased to the set rate. Now I got MB VRAM. The amount reported can be modified or disabled if desired by changing the following registry value: The value is interpreted as number of MB to report MB. A value of 0 disables reporting the dummy memory segment. I have 16GB of RAM but when I try to increase the minimum vram of the Intel HD iGPU from MB to 1GB, it goes into a reboot loop until I set it back to MB.
If your computer is a custom-built desktop, contact the manufacturer of its motherboard. Hi, if you have 16GB RAM in your computer, I strongly recommend you install a bit version of Windows because bit Windows will let you use only up to 3GB RAM.
