I have HP Laptop 15-bs0xx, intel HD 620 graphics and windows 10 1809. I have tried looking in the BIOS utility but there is no such option. I have even created registries in the registry editor shown in most of the articles and youtube videos, but all in vain. Please help!
Yes the total avilable graphics memory is shown 4096 mb and the shared system memory shows 3968 mb. But I heard it is the dedicated memory that maters and it increases game performance. Then shouldn't I be worrying about it? Please clarify.
So you mean to say that the amount of dedicated vram dosent really matter as intel integrated graphics dosent have memoryof its own.
Then can you please suggest me some of the ways to improve gaming performance for my laptop.
The settings (reservations) in the BIOS are for the BIOS and are ignored by the Windows Graphics drivers. The amount currently dedicated to graphics is controlled dynamically by the driver, based upon current needs and, as Al said, may consume up to 50% of the available memory. There are ways to change the minimum within the Registry, but this is only recommended for those cases where older (read: buggy) games refuse to run with the default minimum settings. While it is true that a very (very!) small increase in graphics performance may be garnered by locking in a much higher minimum, overall system performance will be disaffected by this change and this will disaffect game performance in other ways. It really isn't worth it.
Al is also correct, BTW, when he says that the only way to significantly increase graphics performance is to add an NVIDIA or AMD graphics engine. If you cannot, then your graphics performance is going to remain limited.
