X200 4500MHD Graphics Memory

2009-11-14, 21:49 PM

Is there anyway to increase the memory on the video card in the X200's 4500MHD graphics?  I tried looking for something in BIOS but I couldn't find anything.  According to device manager, it's only using 32MB.  I have 4GB so I'd like to allocate at least 512MB.

there is no real way of doing this, as the video memory allocation is arranged by the software. But under 3D settings of the Intel display tray, you can increase the memory footprint from normal to high. Also, with the integrated graphics card more vram won't improve your graphics performance. This is akin to putting a bigger wheel to a stock standard toyota corolla, in hope to gain faster performance.
