    How do I transfer my Shared vram to my Dedicated vram

    This question is mainly so I can play GTA 5.

    I meet every requirement but one..

    Dedicated video memory....

    It says:

    Total Available Graphics Memory: 3200 MB
    Dedicated Video Memory: 768 MB
    System Video Memory: 0 MB
    Shared System Memory: 2432 MB

    I would like to know how to switch shared and dedicated because 2432 MB would be outstanding for GTA 5.

    Right now 768 is atrocious. Help please?

    You can't, it is what it is with APUs. The dedicated is what is on the die, the shared is what is available to it from your RAM. Laptops aren't the best gaming machines for newer games unless willing to spend $2000+.

    Edit: My laptop has a dedicated graphics card which has 4GB of memory, it does ok with newer games but still not great.
