Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator Driver Report

Driver Version: 6.14.10.4436

Default Language: English
DirectX* Version: 9.0

Re: help needed to increase graphic memory

With integrated graphics, it doesn't work like that. There is only one kind of memory, and that is your computer's RAM. Both graphics card and CPU access it when they need to. The only difference between "64MB" and "224MB" integrated graphics memory is that either 64MB or 224MB have been set aside so that the graphics driver can decide what to do with that memory, and the operating system doesn't touch it. If the 64 MB is not enough, then the graphics card can access data outside that region just as fast as data within the 64 MB, because it is all the same kind of memory anyway. So setting aside 224 MB will not have much affect at all, except that your Mac will run slower because it has less memory available to all the applications.

Re: help needed to increase graphic memory

Thanks Hockson , but tell me whether i can increase the memory in use or not.
I was Playing Fifa 08 on my pc and then i minimized the game & found that graphic memory in use was 27mb from 11mb.
Now , some games requires 32mb and i want to achieve it.
Please give some suggestions.

The only option is to get a new Video Card or Graphic Card? What Slot in terms of AGP or PCI-E do you have? What is the rest of your specifications?

Re: help needed to increase graphic memory

I'm not using any video card. I had intel 945GC motherboard. I Just want to share RAM with onboard graphics. Before this boad i was using intel 865G motherboard in which there was an option to increase onboard graphic to 32mb
but in this board the option shows only 1mb & 8mb.

I had one more problem.
I had installed new version of intel graphic driver.
