I'm Planning to Get a New PC and I Need Advice

Recommended Posts

Correct, APUs don't have an own VRAM, they using the RAM. This is why the RAM is that important for the GPU speed. Dual channel configuration can double the performance compared to a single setup. And an 3200MHz RAM compared to an 2400MHz can have another impact of 25-35%.

As @Stan` said it's possible to configurate the amount of RAM usage in the BIOS, but this not necessary. The usage is dynamicaly managed by the OS. So changing this configuration in the BIOS can make it worse than better.

Intel uses both. They have like 128MB integrated and then "steal" the rest.

From what I understand of you link, they have no separate memory. They explain the false Windows display in the bottom boxes.

The Iris Pro uses some eDRAM. Don't know if there are some more Intel CPUs with separate VRAM.
