T440P BIOS graphic mem. 256mb to 512mb difference ?

#1 Post by 123434 » Wed Sep 11, 2019 11:23 pm

Hello
Windows 10 64bit.
- In BIOS(latest 2019) I changed i5-4300M: HD4600 graphic card's allocated memory from 256mb to 512mb.
- But there is no difference in performance.
So the above BIOS setting does nothing ?

Windows 10 says "Dedicated Video Memory: 128 MB".
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600.

According to Intel: i5 4300M has Graphics Video Max Memory 2 GB.
One can assume that you have plenty of RAM installed.
But how do you measure the (lack of increased) GPU performance?
Maybe you need a bigger increase?

I for one would not trust whatever W10 tells you.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!

Latest 3DMark.
16 GB= 2x8 GB Kingston HyperX Impact DDR3L 2133 MHz.

Maybe Win10 just shows it incorrectly.
I can try to look if VRAM shows correctly using HWInfo or similar Aida64,...
