Would it be possible to increase the dedicated video memory?

There is only 128MB of dedicated video memory on a MI notebook ultra laptop with an Intel i5 processor, Intel iris xe graphics, 16GB of RAM, and 16GB of SSD storage. Despite trying the registry editor and BIOS methods, I was unable to increase it. My dedicated video memory needs to be increased or I would like to know if it's even possible... Thanks in advance.

If it can be increased, it would be a function in your bios.   However, it is a legacy issue.   Modern games do not use it.  Video memory will allocate up to 50 percent of your system memory (which means, in your case, 8GB).  

 

If you have games that want dedicated memory, get rid of them and upgrade to a newer, modern version.
