ASUS K56CM, Intel i5-3317U, Nvidia GT 635M 2GB,

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a new laptop, ASUS K56CM, Intel i5-3317U, Nvidia GT 635M 2GB, OCZ Vertex 4 128GB.

My problem is that when i play games, the Nvidia GPU kicks in which is good. BUT it doesn't use the 2GB dedicated VRAM, it uses shared memory.
When i monitor gameplay, GPU-Z reads that "Memory Usage (Dedicated): 0 MB" and "Memory Usage (Dynamic): 0 - ~500".

When I pull up the System Information in the Nvidia control panel it says: "Dedicated video memory: 2048 MB DDR3" and "System video memory: 0 MB" and finally "Shared system memory: 2047 MB".

I've looked all over internet, BIOS, control panel, battery settings and so on without any luck. Could use some help!


thanks.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you sure the Nvidia GPU is being used?
