Mac Mini video memory
 
HI
just upgraded my 1.6 Intel Mac Mini to two Gigs of ram (went quite well)


I'm new to Macs but noticed in the spec that the onboard video chip uses 64Mb of the system ram.
Now I have more ram, is it possible to allocate more ram to the video chip?

Thanks

In theory the 950 supports up to 224MB shared memory.

So it would be possible, but there's no way of doing this without extra software.

In OSX it will only use 64 MB of VRAM no matter how much system RAM you have. In windows however It will use as much as it need up to the 224 MB limit
