How to Increase Video RAM (VRAM) on Windows 10

Have you tried to play some games but Windows won’t let you play them?

Do you want to increase video RAM (VRAM) on Windows 10?

Video RAM is a special kind of RAM on your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) that determines how fast your GPU performs and how much textures, shaders, effects, … can it perform.

Sometimes you may have an error telling you: Your GPU memory is full, or, You can’t play this game because you have low GPU memory

In this easy tutorial you will learn how to know how much VRAM your PC have and how to increase it both in BIOS and in the Registry Editor.

Let’s go!

1. How Much VRAM Does My PC Have?

Right-click on your Desktop and choose “Display settings.”

Click on “Advanced display settings.”

Click on “Display adapter properties for Display 1.”

Here you have your VRAM under “Dedicated Video Memory:“, in my case it’s a “4096 MB” but if your PC is using an integrated graphics card (intel) you should have a very low value, the maximum we can increase it is 512 MB, it’s recommended to use a dedicated graphics card.

2. Increase VRAM in BIOS

Open your BIOS using the keyboard key according to your PC manufacturer.

Go to “Advanced” using your keyboard arrows.

Go to “Graphics Configuration.”

Hit Enter on “DVMT Pre-Allocated.”

Set the new value and hit Enter.

Exit while saving configuration. Congratulations!

3. Increase VRAM Using the Registry Editor

Open Run prompt using Windows+R and type in regedit, hit Enter.

Go to the following path and create a new Key named GMM:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intel

Under GMM key create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value named DedicatedSegmentSize.

Give it the value “512“, click “OK.”

There you have it dear friend, you just increased your PC’s VRAM successfully!
