How to Find Your Available VRAM on Windows 10?

You should know how to check your VRAM on Windows 10, whether using one of the best gaming laptops or cheap gaming laptops. It is essential to know how much VRAM (Video RAM) you have, especially when you play top-tier games like Resident Evil Village or Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Call of Duty, or if you want to perform specific GPU-intensive tasks like 3D modeling. You can always Google your GPU to find your VRAM, but that can be an issue if you do not know what GPU you have.

What is VRAM (Video RAM)?

VRAM (Video RAM) is a specific type of RAM (Random Access Memory) that is used in graphics processing units (GPU) for expensive computers. It has its advantage if your computer has its own dedicated graphics cards. VRAM is separate from the physical RAM, reserved for memory functions about display and graphics. Different graphics cards have different amounts of VRAM. So, the more VRAM a graphics card has, the better it is since more VRAM means a graphics card can handle more graphic and display operations simultaneously.

Moreover, on Windows 10, a user can quickly check how much VRAM they have on their computer using two different ways – The settings app and DxDiag. This risewindows article will elaborate on checking the VRAM with both methods.
