NUC6i5SYH BIOS setting - Graphic

Hi everybody,

 

I have an Intel Nuc NUC6i5SYH and 64bit Linux Mint.

 

I did the last updated the bios: 39

 

 

In the bios there are setting options for the graphics.

 

We can fix the memory (64 or 128 or more ...)

 

 

Some of you have they changed this setting?

 

In which case should we do? and why ?

 

 

the impacts ?

 

positive and negative

 

 

Thank you for your feedback

In general, the more memory you provide to graphics, the better it is going to perform. The improvements in performance are fairly small, however. I typically use 256MB myself...

Impacts? Well, the memory dedicated is memory that is not available for the O/S to use for other things. The aperture size is a reserve against the memory space and not against the physical RAM available, so no penalty (just make sure that, for best performance, it matches the size of the physical memory dedicated).

Ok thank you for the explanation.

So not too much impact in the case of a single use.

 

 

Personally I leave the default options.
