Why Dedicated VRAM of 2 GB is not being used by the discrete GPU, and it's only using 512 MB just like mine integrated GPU does?

I brought this new laptop recently: HP Notebook - 15q-by002ax,  It's documented to have a AMD Radeon™ 520 Graphics (2 GB DDR3 dedicated):

When i run games or visit task manager, as you can see on the image, it never uses 2 GB VRAM, it only uses 512 MB, which is insufficient to play games.

I updated all software drivers + BIOS and updated directx, graphics drivers and all, and I've searched everywhere, still haven't found no solutions.

Please help me AMD community, i brought this laptop only for that AMD Radeon™ 520 Graphics (2 GB DDR3 dedicated). And if i don't utilize it for what i needed it for, I'll have to quit using this laptop.

Speccy and other applications too, show 2048 MB of memory on details, but on practical use, i feel like i got scammed.
