Question About Intel HD 4000

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Quick question on the Intel HD 4000,

Since it does not have dedicated VRAM, does the power performance depend (to a max cap) on how much system RAM there is?

Thanks.

Not sure what you mean by "amount of power" but you can change in the BIOS how much RAM is uses. I think 512MB is the max you can set it, but I could be mistaken.

The power draw will be pretty much the same no matter how much RAM you have.

Sorry, definitely the wrong word.

Didn't actually mean amount of electrical power but rather the performance. smile.gif

VRAM is just a small part of what measures performance if a GPU. The easiest way to learn, is simply look at benchmarks.

The faster the memory, the greater your performance will be in the end. smile.gif Shoot for DDR3 1600 and you should be good. Also like he said above, increase the amount of Vram you want to dedicate to the iGPU in the BIOS.
