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.
