This of course makes us unable to play a game. So how do you add Intel HD VRAM to play heavy games on your PC or laptop?
Intel HD is an iGPU from Intel's APU products. First introduced in 2010, until now its development is still ongoing. The rapid development even made it evolve into Intel Iris.
Talking about Intel's APU technology, the highest amount of VRAM in this APU series itself is only 128MB. This of course makes us unable to play a game. So how do you add Intel HD VRAM to play heavy games on your PC or laptop? Let's see the discussion below!

The current VRAM on Intel HD is actually capable of up to 64GB. It's even much bigger than the Nvidia GTX Titan X Pascal at 12GB. Before discussing how to increase it, Jaka wants to first tell you how this Intel HD VRAM works.
Unlike VRAM on a dGPU, Intel HD or APU or iGPU it will take RAM from the CPU used for processing. Or it can also be called Shared Memory. So the large VRAM on Intel HD, will greatly affect the amount of RAM.

Talking about how to add Intel HD VRAM, it really depends on the motherboard manufacturer. Some provide a VRAM size setting option in the BIOS, some don't.
If the manufacturer supports Then you simply enter the BIOS, then look for the menu for the Shared Memory configuration. Adjust as you wish, then you're done. But if there is no support, you can only surrender to automatic settings from the manufacturer.

The next way to add VRAM is to add RAM. As Jaka said before, on the APU system the amount of VRAM will depend on the amount of RAM. Because RAM is shared for CPU and GPU.
But again, this is not always possible. It depends on the motherboard manufacturer. There are those who add RAM and then the VRAM goes up, some don't.
To make it easy to understand, here Jaka makes the key points as follows.
- Intel HD is the iGPU of Intel's APU.
- VRAM on Intel HD is very influential on the amount of RAM. Because RAM is used to share between the CPU and GPU (Shared Memory).
- Depends on the motherboard manufacturer. There are motherboards that can adjust the amount of VRAM through the BIOS, some are not.
- Depends on the motherboard manufacturer. By adding RAM, you can increase VRAM automatically. But some are not.
- If the motherboard manufacturer has locked the VRAM value, then you can only surrender. Unless you want to risk permanent damage if it fails with a BIOS modification.
- Is it possible to increase Intel HD VRAM on all types of PCs/laptops? No, depending on the motherboard manufacturer.
What if the VRAM is too large, so the RAM space is shrinking? Intel has a technology called Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). Where with this technology, you can automatically adjust Shared Memory dynamically as needed.
If your VRAM is sufficient, you can even play GTA V games using only a processor for Rp. 800 thousand. Here's the performance video for Intel G4560 and Intel HD 610, on GTA V Low @720p 30FPS.VIEW ARTICLE
