Intel HD Graphics is an integrated video solution and as such it is not very fast, because it has no memory of its own, but takes some from system RAM. Nevertheless, Intel HD Graphics has come a long way and recently it made the budget video cards practically obsolete letting its owners play even the newest games at low settings.

Unfortunately, some games are coded to require a specific amount of dedicated video memory and if not present in the system they refuse to start, although they may be perfectly playable on Intel HD Graphics. In this article I'm going to discuss this exact problem and I will show you how to increase the 'dedicated' video memory of Intel HD Graphics or whenever not possible what to do in order to make these games run on your computer. Before taking any actions, let's check out how much 'dedicated' memory your Intel HD Graphics is currently using. To see it, simply right click on your desktop, select Screen resolution and then click on Advanced settings. A window with your video card properties will open and you will see the memory your Intel HD Graphics is using in the 'Adapters' tab (take a look at the screenshots on the right). Now when you know how much 'dedicated' memory your Intel HD Graphics is using read the instructions below for your computer type to see how to increase it or what to do if you can't.
I've divided the instruction in 3 sub topics based on the type of machine you have (a desktop, a laptop or a Mac) in order to save you reading unnecessary information, so simply scroll to your type of computer and read on. Laptop Users If you have a laptop, you should first check out your BIOS to see if there's a setting to set the Intel HD Graphics dedicated video memory or not. Refer to the 'Desktop Users' section below for more information and what to search in the BIOS.
Unfortunately, most laptop manufacturers do not include such setting in their BIOSes, so do not worry if you do not find one for your laptop. You can contact your laptop manufacturer for more information, but most likely it will not be possible to increase Intel HD Graphics dedicated video memory. That is why you should consider other ways to make a given game run on your computer.
I recommend you try the following. Update the game to its latest version and apply its latest patches. You can also check out the game vendor's website for a patch or a fix that makes the game run on Intel HD graphics.
If step 1 didn't solve the problem, search over the Internet for a way to fool the game that your graphics card has the required amount of dedicated video memory. Many games have a settings or a configuration file, which lets you manually input the dedicated video memory of your graphics card or some other settings that might help, so simply search a little bit for the game you are interested in and I'm pretty sure a solution will come up. Desktop Users If you have a desktop, you are lucky - almost all desktop computers have a setting in the BIOS which lets you specify the exact amount of 'dedicated' memory Intel HD Graphics should allocate from system RAM.
All you have to do it to enter the BIOS, which is usually done by pressing, or right after your computer starts. Take a look at the initial screen to see the exact key you should press or consult your motherboard user's manual. When you enter the BIOS, look for the Intel HD Graphics share memory setting, which is usually placed in a category like 'Advanced', 'Chipset Configuration' or something like that, if you cannot find it, consult your motherboard user's manual again, as it should be listed there.
The screenshot below shows how this setting looks like on an Asrock motherboard. When you find the setting simply set the amount of 'dedicated' memory your want your Intel HD Graphics to allocate when your computer starts and press to save the settings and reboot your computer. Please, note that this memory is not actually dedicated, but is rather taken from system RAM, so if your computer has only 2GB of RAM do not set it too high as you will be left with only a small amount of system memory and your computer's performance will suffer.
Refer to the table below for the recommended amount of video memory based on the amount of RAM you have: RAM Recommended Video Memory 2GB 256MB 4GB 512MB 8GB or more 1024MB or more This will make almost all games, if not smoothly playable, at least able to run on your computer. Mac Users Apple computers with Intel HD Graphics usually allocate a specific amount of graphics memory based on the amount of RAM in the system. For example, if you have a MacBook with Intel HD Graphics 3000, your video memory will be as follows: RAM Video Memory 2GB 256MB 4GB 384MB 8GB or more 512MB There isn't a setting in the BIOS, so the only way to have more video memory on a Mac with Intel HD Graphics is to install more RAM in it. See also:. Hi, as I've said in the article some games refuse to start if a certain amount of dedicated graphics memory is not present and that's where Intel HD Graphics usually comes short.
It's an integrated graphics solution and as such has no dedicated memory but rather takes some from system RAM and it's usually too low. Unfortunately, laptops rarely have a setting in BIOS for increasing it it is best to trick the problematic game that the computer actually has the necessary amount of dedicated graphics memory. Depending on the game this can be done in different ways: by editing a configuration file, bu installing a patch or an update and so on. Do a search for the specific game you are interested in and I'm pretty sure you will find a solution. I have a Toshiba satellite laptop with a 4th generation core i5 processor with 6gb ram and a intel hd graphics family graphics 'card'. I've tried every solution, from bios to mods (including the 4gb patch) and lower qualities but i cant seem to get skyrim to run any better than about 20-25 fps.
And i wanna know if there's any possible way to get more than 16 mb (according to systemrequirementslab.com) of dedicated memory. Would an external graphics card help? Or is that for extra monitors only?
I'm really desperate here. I just bought this laptop for twice as much as my sisters and hers will run skyrim on medium settings with 60 fps cause she has some sort of dedicated graphics 'card' in it.
Hi Andrew, the memory allocated to Intel HD Graphics is not directly related to performance. Intel HD Graphics can use up to 1.7GB of shared system memory for graphics needs, so if the game is not hard coded to require a certain amount of dedicated graphics memory (and Skyrim isn't), you should be able to play it.
Skyrim is a heavy game and it's normal for integrated graphics to struggle with it, but with the right settings, you should be able to enjoy smooth gameplay. Check out the following article for more information and recommended game settings for Intel HD Graphics. Hi, I have played Skyrim with a mix of low and medium settings at 1280x720 on a laptop with Intel Core i3 2130m and Intel HD Graphics 3000. Intel HD 2500 is considerably slower that Intel HD 3000, so I expect you will be able to run the game fluently only on the lowest settings. Check out this article for more information:. Since you are on a desktop I recommend you check out if you have a PCI Express x16 slot and get a dedicated video card if yes. Even an $80 dedicated video card will be a huge improvement over your Intel HD 2500.
Hi Pavel, I just wanted to thank you for all this great information. I am so NOT a gamer, but my 9 year old is, and your tips helped me find a way to run 'Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare' on our new, but lower end laptop, that lacked the graphics interface needed. Of course, we couldn't change the BIOS, but your suggestion to look for an OS cheat to force the game to run was what did the trick. Windows 8's compatibility analyzer changed the game settings to work within the hardware specs we have. This game was his only requested birthday gift, so you've made me into a hero, and my kid a very happy zombie hunter. Thanks again!
Would you mind helping me out here? In the advanced setting of the sceen resolution i see the following information: Total Available Graphics Memory: 1792 MB Dedicated Video Memory: 32 MB System Video Memory 0MB Shared System Memory: 1760 MB My computers specs is: Intel i7 -4510U CPU @ 2. GHz 2.60GHz Ram: 8 GB Intel hd 4400 windows 8.1 64-bit Can i increase that 32 MB? Comparing to yours it looks really low. Btw i couldnt find those setting in my laptop. Another thing is that performance wise, the game running on my laptop is similar to one of my friends laptop having i5 4th gen and 4 gb RAM. Isnt my laptop supposed to perform better??
Hi, unfortunately on laptops the setting to increase the memory allocated to Intel HD Graphics is rarely available. Do not worry about this however, because increasing this memory does not improve performance. The biggest gains in performance you will get by upgrading your RAM to work in dual channel mode if it isn't already (e.g. 2x4GB instead of 1x8GB) and by turning off the power saving options.
For more information check out my article about. Regarding your question about the i5 vs i7 processor, the i7 processor has greater computational power than the i5, but for gaming they are pretty much the same, because they have the same integrated graphics (in this case Intel HD 4400), which is the limiting factor in most games. Hello Pavel My computer specs are as follows: Processor: Intel(r) Core(TM) i3-4160 CPU @ 3.60GHz RAM: 8.00 GB (7.68 GB Usable) OS: Windows 10 Intel HD Type: Intel HD Graphics 4400 Motherboard: Asrock I am able to access the UEFI menu, but whenever I do, I am unable to change anything due to a password lock. This is strange, as I purchased this computer brand new. I have tried the default 'admin' as a password, but it does not work. Is there any way I can bypass this so I can change the BIOS settings? Thank you in advance, Jesse Graham.
Thanks, It helped me. I have a all in one pc with 4gb ram and 64mb vram with w10. Firstly I couldnt enter BIOS with F2,F10 as it was intergrated like a laptop. So I got into BIOS in another which I figured out:: Go to control panel and search 'advanced start-up' and click on advanced startup option and click 'Restart Now'.
Then Your PC restarts and get into 'Start up' window. Then open 'Troubleshoot' settings in the start up window. There You can find a 'Change firmware settings' or something like 'UEFI Firmware settings'. You will be directed to BIOS. Change the DVRAM value in the BIOS and reboot. You can find that the DVRAM has increased to the set rate.
Now I got 512MB VRAM. Hope it helps. Hey,I've found a great way to do this on laptop (don't know if it will work for everyone, but I found it on the official intel website, I do have windows 10, maybe that makes it easier, but anyway): 'Dedicated Memory Reporting The graphics driver now reports some amount of fictitious “dedicated” graphics memory to the operating system (128MB by default) to work around applications issues in a number of games. These games incorrectly look for some amount of “dedicated” graphics memory because they weren’t coded with the unified memory architecture for processor graphics. The amount reported can be modified or disabled if desired by changing the following registry value: HKEYLOCALMACHINE Software Intel GMM, create a REGDWORD value named “DedicatedSegmentSize”. The value is interpreted as number of MB to report (0-512MB).
A value of 0 disables reporting the dummy memory segment. If the registry key/value is not found, the driver will report the default 128MB. ' What I did was: go to the BIOS (in the 'run' panel type 'regedit' and press enter), browse my way to HKEYLOCALMACHINE Software Intel and create the key 'GMM', Select that key and create a DWORD-file called 'DedicatedSegmentSize', set it's value (hexadecimal) to 512 (higher doesn't do anything, I tried) and your set! Of coarse you have to check your GPU properties to see if it actually worked, but for me it did, only problem is for me that I still can't play the game I wanted to play because it needs 1536MB, not just 512MB:(.
