Ryzen 3 4300u

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5 a515-44 with Ryzen 3 4300u and 12gb RAM, but only 512mb dedicated memory video is allocated. I know this graphics integrated can use more graphics memory, but the BIOS don't allows modify it, and Acer support says me that it cannot be modified, is this true?

Thanks in advance

Yes,

BIOS is the only way to increase the vRAM to your Integrated Graphics.

If that BIOS setting is fixed or not showing then whatever amount of vRAM it has assigned is permanent. Many laptops has the option to increase or decrease the vRAM via BIOS Settings. But many don't. So it seems like you have a laptop that you can't increase the vRAM and is set permanently.

Besides, Windows will assign more memory when it is needed even though you only have the minimum amount of vRAM assigned.  The Integrated Graphics may run a little bit more efficiently with more vRAM but you are stuck with what you have.

Unless ACER creates a new BIOS where you can change the vRAM. You can ask ACER Support if they have plans on a new BIOS with that option or not.
