If you are a tech geek, you might know about Video RAM or VRAM. VRAM is basically a type of random access memory used to store image data for your PC’s Display. In other words, it’s the amount of memory that the graphics card possesses.
VRAM is not the same as RAM, but you will find less VRAM than RAM. RAM can be replaced easily on a PC, but VRAM is not replaceable since PCs and laptops have different graphics cards.
You should check your system’s Video RAM (VRAM) if you are experiencing frame rate drops while gaming or trying to run graphics-intensive applications.
Basically, VRAM acts as a buffer between your CPU and Video card processor and ensures a better & uninterrupted gaming experience. If you face problems while running graphic-intensive applications, you might like to increase the VRAM.
