How to Find your Available VRAM on Windows 10?

Posted by

Whether you’re using one of the best gaming laptops or cheap gaming laptops, you should know how to check your VRAM in Windows 10. Knowing how much VRAM (Video RAM) you have is very important, especially when playing top-tier games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Resident Evil Village or if you want to perform specific GPU-intensive tasks, like 3D modeling. Of course, you can always Google your GPU to find your VRAM, but that can be an issue if you don’t know what GPU you have.

What is VRAM (Video RAM)?

VRAM (Video RAM) is a specific type of RAM (Random Access Memory) that is used in graphics processing units (GPUs) for expensive computers. If your computer has its own dedicated graphics cards, it has its own advantage. VRAM is separate from the physical RAM, which is reserved for memory functions pertaining to display and graphics. Different graphics cards have different amounts of VRAM. So, the more VRAM a graphics card has, the better it is since more VRAM means a graphics card can handle more graphics and display operations simultaneously.

Fortunately, on Windows 10, a user can quickly check how much VRAM they have on their computer using two different ways – Settings app and DxDiag. In this gearupwindows article, we will review both methods one by one.

How to View VRAM through DxDiag?
