Shared RAM

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i am in need of a new laptop that needs to use graphics design programs. but i have an epos system that only runs on 32bit operating systems.

im looking at a laptop with 4gb RAM

what i need to know is if i down grade the OS to 32bit i would then get 2.89gb of usable RAM would the remainder of the RAM be used for graphics if the GPU uses shared RAM

i think no, as there is a total amount of RAM that a 32bit os can address, that includes gpu mem. just a guess.
