    Manual says 512 MB RAM but DirectX Diagnostic tool shows 2226 MB of Total Memory

    I am visiting this forum from last few months and i am really very happy to say that i have got many solutions.Now i am posting my first question in this forum. My laptop's user manual shows that the discrete GPU has 512 MB of dedicated RAM but in the directX Diagnostic tool,it says 2226 MB of total memory. What does it mean? My configuration is CPU:Intel core 35-460M,2.53 GHz;RAM:4 GB DDR2:GPU:AMD Radeon HD 5470M,512 MB;OS:Windows 7.

    Nice to hear that you are visiting this forum from last few months. The memory size and DirectX Diagnostic Tool reports isn't just the dedicated video memory of the card. It also considers the amount of system Memory(RAM) used by the graphics processor. AMD catalyst control center or a tool such as GPU-Z will report the exact size of the graphics processor's memory. If you want to see the break up of the total memory, go to Display Settings in control Panel and click on the Adjust resolution link.Then click on Advanced Settings and you will get a dialogue box with information about the graphics processor.

    Dear friend actually there are different types of the memory available such as the virtual memory , page file memory etc hence you have

    the dedicated memory which has been advertised.

    Follow these steps.

    1. for complete deatails of the system including the ram and the cpu.

    2. it will show every information about your system.

    3. Hope you get complete details about your pc.

    For the further help post to my visitor massage.
