The link was helpful, but it didn't necessarily say that I have a combined 3072 MB video memory or just 1024 MB or 2048 MB. It states they work together and when your in need of extra performance the linked video card starts to help my primary. (If i read it correctly)
But for the PC games i want to play I need 1 GB - 2 GB of video memory and I found 2 websites (Not sure if i can post outside links) but they say I can't run (For example) GTA V. The two sites differ one says memory card meets the 1 GB minimum requirement but fails the test (Somehow), the other site says my CPU and Video card don't meet minimum system requirements.
My laptop is as follows:
Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
AMD FX-7500 Quad Core 2.1 GHZ (Turbo boost up to 3.3 GHZ)
1024 MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 Graphics (Primary) AND 2048 MB ATI AMD Radeon R5 M230 Series (Linked)
12 GB of RAM
1 TB Hard drive
GTA V Minimum requirements are:
Quad core CPU @ 2.4 GHZ
1 GB of video memory
4 GB of RAM
65 GB of hard drive space
With turbo boost I meet the CPU minimum requirements, (If both video cards add up to 3072 MB of video memory) With a combined 3072 MB Dual graphics cards memory I meet the minimum requirements and with 12 GB I exceed the RAM minimum requirements. But I failed those 2 sites minimum requirements to play GTA V on my laptop ... Why?
My laptop "Should" be able to play GTA V right? (On low or medium settings)
Vram doesn't "pool". TurboBoost will most likely not kick in for this game as it only works under lightly threaded loads, and especially not because of the constricted thermals in a laptop. You won't be able to play GTA V with that laptop.
