Description of the problem:

The dedicated GPU is supposed to have 4096Mb vram, it says it has on Radeon Settings but when on Performance tab on Task Manager it only shows 516Mb... This explains why I could only see 1024Mb when playing GTA V with AMD Crossfire on. If we sum up integrated and dedicated we get 4.5Gb but I can only use 1Gb so that leaves us with 3.5Gb of unused potential. 


Am I supposed to overclock it or sth? Idk

I was playing GTA V recently with settings set to use 2Gb vram, but I could hardly move my cursor and my computer was burning hot... I don't think it was so bad that it could harm my hardware, but cmon we're talking about a 2015 game!
